Gokil System is known for coining new phrases at a flick of a wrist; 'hyper-eclecticism' being one of them. Although the map is not the territory, nothing less is true. Ranging from the sounds of shamanistic rituals from the Amazon to the up and up of new-age modernisms; global sounds have never been embedded more specifically and timely than this. Gokil System defetishes DJ-ism and brings audio directly to the recipient. With more than 15 years of hosting, promoting and delivering soundsystem culture in multiple forms to the youth, Gokil System is just but a new moniker for a traditional approach and attitude. Influenced by multi-identities Gokil System is here to uniquely explore Planet Earth's music.
Arthur Bray is one of the Hong Kong/Shanghai/London-based collective Yeti Out, the 30-year-old has worn plenty of hats – model, DJ, editor… the list goes on. This flexibility is something he’s emphasised for Yeti Out, which started as a party-promoting music collective that has now branched out into everything from art shows, a record label and a creative agency. And of course, more parties.
Well-known DJs on the Hong Kong and Shanghai party circuit, Arthur and his twin brother Tom are pushing the envelope for underground music in Asia. They’re helping genres such as grime, garage, Afrobeat, bass music, house and techno gain momentum in a city that’s probably better known for its EDM or pop-filled nightclubs than anything else. Right now, they’re setting their sights on local events such as Sonar and Art Basel in March, while concurrently working on an audiovisual set for their record label, Silk Road Sounds. Get to know Yeti Out here – and make sure to catch one of their crazy parties soon.
