After the Moussy fashion show on Friday night I jumped in a taxi and headed over to Happy Valley for the two-year anniversary of CLOT, a company started by Pop star Edison Chen with his friends Kevin and Pavlos. Since its inception, CLOT has been prolific at doing collaboration projects with international street artists and fashion brands. More importantly for Friday night, they throw excellent parties. Their launch party and first anniversary event have been my picks for party of the year, the last two years in a row.
This year’s event was located in a new club called Adrenalin that is situated within the Jockey Club at the Happy Valley racecourse. This was my first time here, and it’s an impressive two-floor club with excellent views of the Happy Valley neighborhood and race-track. It also has large outdoor seating which makes it unique.
New York’s Just Blaze, one of the top producers in contemporary Hip Hop was the special guest d.j. for the night. He played commercial Hip Hop, but cut up the songs expertly, and kept the pace going strong all night.
Both the large downstairs and upstairs areas were packed. The police asked the organizers to do a headcount… but the party kept going strong.
