DJ / producer / remixer of the moment, Flume will be playing in Hong Kong on Friday as part of a mega show that includes his What So Not project (also featuring DJ Emoh Instead,) as well as legendary California Hip Hop DJ, J-Rocc.
Flume is known for producing heavy remixes and reworkings of songs. His beats include a number of different sounds including Trap. Trap is a genre of dance music that contains a wide assortment of influences, but often features cascading drums as well as big climaxes and breakdowns. Trap has deep roots in Southern Hip Hop and Miami Bass but also integrates sounds from Electronic dance music.
Flume has proved to be deft as a remixer, crafting songs that often enhance the original.
Here are a few choice cuts:
DJ Emoh Instead is another talented producer / remixer / DJ, also from Australia. You can hear a short mix of his work below.
As if that wasn’t enough to get you to attend, the night also features California Hip Hop legend J-Rocc, who is the founder of the notorious DJ crew, the Beat Junkies. J-Rocc has been a major figure on the West Coast scene since the 90’s, and has collaborated with a who’s who of talent including heavy-hitters such as Madlib and J.Dilla.
These three, combined with Hong Kong based DJs K-Melo, Enso and Yau make this a big night for music lovers in Hong Kong. The event is organized by Untitled Entertainment and Fresh Off The Boat.
