In what promises to be an exciting show as well as a good look at contemporary Chinese Hip Hop, the Fringe Club hosts ‘Beat In Vision Vol.3’ on Saturday, May 22nd.
Organized by top street wear clothing store Loading, and local Hip Hop crew the Justice League, the night features Dumdue, one of the most talented Hip Hop groups to emerge from China.
Though I haven’t heard any of their newer music, just hearing Dumdue’s beats from five years ago is enough to make me want to check them out. During that period, their music was composed of catchy-yet-complex multi-layered beats. It’s a kind of sophisticated, jazzy Hip Hop, that’s far more advanced than anything I’ve heard in Hong Kong.
Fans of Hip Hop before the Bling era will feel right at home. Check out their video below, (and keep in mind that this track is around six years old!)
In addition to Dumdue, also performing on Saturday are the local duo, the Justice League. Made up of group members Mastamic and Big Sammy, we’ve mentioned them before here, when talking about promising new Hip Hop talent.
This is the third event in a series of events organized by Loading to help promote the local Hip Hop scene.
