Nanogram is the Hong Kong-based DJ project of Jason Ng. Since 2017, Nanogram has evolved through different genres ultimately finding his own unique style of blending techno, industrial and experimental electronic music. Heavily inspired by post-punk and industrial music culture, Nanogram has since determined to bring the dystopian sound to Hong Kong. Realizing the lack of
well-tuned sound systems and a music-focused venue in Hong Kong, which limits the possibility to enjoy the far left segment of electronic music, Nanogram found a team of like-mined and driven individuals to build 宀 Club together, and started his event series at the club – Entropy 熵, which emphasizes on experimentation on the art of selection, mixing and live performances.
Nanogram is a resident DJ of 宀 Club, and has performed alongside Phase Fatale, Mr. Ho, Sinus O, and more. He has also performed at a renowned experimental venue in Tokyo, KGR Tokyo, and has contributed a podcast mix to C-Kay’s Coma Hole series.
Casey Anderson’s take on house and techno is based on his deep respect for dance music’s roots: Detroit techno, Soul Train funk, and cosmic German electronic music. Ignoring charts, trends and clichés, his DJ sets are playful and unpredictable. Casey is constantly connecting new dots between obscure, classic and futuristic 4/4 dance music without shying away from the unexpected 80s synthpop or a disco anthem at peak hour.
In 2013 the American-born DJ released his first tracks on Italian label Opilec Music (alongside inspirations like Derrick May and Todd Terje) before joining fellow Hong Kong DJ Frederic Neve to launch Typhoon 8 Records where he has continued to release deep, dubby techno and house. Scoring his first DJ residencies at leading underground spots Yumla and Bassment, since 2009 he's played the closing slot at the city's Clockenflap Music Festival twice, and after co-founding the party collective Humdrum he frequently hosted and supported international guests like Deetron, Jimpster...
As a film critic and scholar, Dan-Neo is a firm believer in storytelling. His DJ sets often bring you ups-and-downs by merging different genres across countries and eras, drawing elements from disco, house, techno, dub-step and more. He can demonstrate an effortlessness of going from hard bangers to soft chill-out tunes, and vice versa. The unique texture of his sound is a result of adopting both minimal and maximal approaches to musical selection and mixing skill. Nonetheless, his musical taste is deeply rooted in those beats and tunes that embrace a cinematic and cosmic tone.
Dan-Neo has been honing his skills as a DJ after he joined Acadana - the best kept secret in Hong Kong - back in 2016. Apart from managing parties and events at Acadana, he regularly plays at different bars and clubs across Hong Kong, such as, 宀 Club, Ruby, Oma and Social Room. Dan-Neo's carefully curated selection also brings him to other respected underground venues across the globe, such as, Oil Club in Shenzhen...
Growing up in New York City, DJ Tynee ( Real name Elaine Shin ) had a strong passion for electronic music that became apparent by age 7; the year she became a proud owner of her first Ghetto Blaster. From that moment on, a lifelong love affair ignited, as she paired music with everything she did. Submerging herself in music earned her an abundance of music knowledge. From Miami Freestyle to the UK New Romantic sound, soulful House to the origins of Electro Breakbeat, she was con-
stantly seeking the world for fascinating new music. DJ Tynee’s obsession with music and all its meticulous details were perhaps a sign of things to come.
Returning to Hong Kong, she was overwhelmed by the underground U.K. Progressive and Breakbeat club movement taking place at the time. This was a time when DJ heavy- weights like Sasha and John Digweed first surfaced in Hong Kong. She got a chance to work with a major promoter who debut’d international legends like Sven Vath, Deep Dish ( Dubfire and Sharem Jey), Carl Cox...

While living in Singapore, he co-ran the notoriously decadent after-hours series Breakfast Club and later held a residency at Headquarters - where his off-kilter selections made him an ideal supporting act for visiting DJs like Black Merlin and Intergalactic Gary.

Finsent C is an artist native to Hong Kong, who has seen his sound evolve innumerably since his initial foray into DJing in 2009. Having been a drummer and member of a local band in his formative years, he eventually sought refuge in electronic music; cultivating a sound that can best be described as fluid, and with an emphasis on the hypnotic spectrum of techno. He perceives sets as flowing journeys, which requires time, and an element of patience to achieve.
His music project - Cipher, is a metaphor for his musical direction and vision – 'experiencing' parties that verge on the ritualistic, to which point they have been described as otherworldly.
Artists both locally and internationally continue to be invited to express their various forms of deep, experimental and meditative sounds.
Hugo first discovered underground house and techno when he worked as an event photographer in 2010. The bold and mesmerizing tunes he heard at legendary venues Yumla and Bassment piqued his interest in the art of DJing.
With his photography on hiatus since 2017, Hugo now plays consistent, well-curated sets to diverse audiences. Hugo's taste in 4/4 dance music can best be described as “very deep”, but he also enjoys experimenting with hip hop and indie rock – the two genres he grew up with - when the moment is right. Arriving at each gig with an external hard drive worth of uncompressed music, there are always the right tunes at Hugo's disposal, for a bar session, club night or beach party.
Hugo has played at some of Hong Kong's most notable events and venues including Acadana, Fauve Radio, Mihn Club, Oma, Schweinehund Teknival and Shi Fu Miz Festival.

Born and raised in North London, music has been a consistent undercurrent throughout meta's life; from his early days spent recording his favourite songs from the radio, and to the influences from his parents' and friends' selections.
Having initially focused on primarily playing psychedelic trance, an introduction to Sandwell District's revered 'Feed Forward' LP signaled the start of a new phase. A torrent of new influences then led meta on a meandering path of esoteric techno.
At present, meta avoids sitting in any one pocket; contented more with crossing over and exploring genre mutations. By embracing every personal musical imprint, he tries best to convey these broad elements onto the dance floor.
With a growing reputation as a versatile taste-maker; meta's forward thinking yet nostalgic approach continues to draw praise.
Based in Hong Kong, he is a resident of Cipher, and a regular selector on the local circuit.
Romi’s sound has developed into a strain of techno/ house that is consistently directed towards generating an atmospheric abyss.
His sets are deep, yet pure – even filled with a certain degree of emptiness. It is this emptiness which invites the listener to get lost on an individual journey of possibilities.
Residencies/ Venues played: Mystik (Seoul), Yumla (Hong Kong), Oma(Hong Kong), Korner (Taipei), Vurt (Seoul), The Observatory (Saigon), Savage (Hanoi), TAG (Chengdu) and many more.

Paris-raised with roots in Taiwan, Eric is a musician, DJ and audio engineer.
With percussion laced with frenetic rhythms, noises and dark sounds affected by intoxicating frequencies, his music is distinct.
His sets regroup a wide range of techno styles: heavy and deep atmospheres, broken beats, industrial machinations and fat bass movements are his signature textures. Whether delivered through his productions or DJ sets, his approach is always aimed at providing not only music for moving a dance floor, but in parallel an experience of new sounds on the edges of techno and its possibilities.
After many live and DJ sets, he became resident of Constant Value Seoul and Myst Paris, a party collective infamous for throwing some of the best techno raves in the dark peripheries of the city. Sinus O has appeared on the lineups of venues and clubs all over Europe and Asia including Tresor (Berlin), Contact (Tokyo), La Machine (Paris)…
Sunsiaré, birthed Jean-François Amadei, is no new face to the East-#Asia scene. Playing alongside such artists as #Berghain’s Roi Perez, Boris & Barker, as well as DJ heavyweights like Gonno (JP) and Cormac, Amadei is not unfamiliar to the art of the mix. JF, whose hands are also behind the Homesick and FGHB labels, gave way to creative minds like Powder, Mr. Ho, Marquis Hawkes, General Ludd and LPZ. Both labels, whose outlets were dedicated to timeless reworks, can be seen riddled with Jf’s own influences.
