  • Don Octavius

    Whether it’s wrecking dance-floors with thunderous trap and future bass, lifting spirits up with euphoric trance, turning it up to 11 with bass shattering electro or shuffling the night away with some groovy house, Don Octavius refuses to be defined by one genre. Forever on the hunt for new and interesting tunes, the Hong Kong born DJ has been a musician since the age of 4, playing percussion in his school concert and jazz bands. After discovering electronic music in high school, he learned to mix and eventually found a niche performing a wide array of genres. He has performed in bars and clubs in Hong Kong & Boston, always throwing down hard hitting and energetic sets for the crowds. He has opened for the likes of YellowClaw, Slushii, Jewelz & Sparks and Chace. For Caius Chung, there is never a shortage of great tracks to throw down on the decks and no greater joy than watching the dance-floor light up.

  • Simtub

    A vital artist in the Hong Kong underground circuit, Simtub plays DeepTech/Melodic Techno and various micro genres of House and Trance music. His sets are known to be evocative and energetic, backed by his understanding of what galvanizes the dance floor. Simtub grew up during the intersection of the hacienda movement in Northern England amidst the rise of UK underground rave culture and when superclubs such as Miss Moneypenny's, Turnmills, Cream and Fabrics dominated the landscape. This period in time heavily influenced his musical style and his sets continue to paint a unique narration of classic influences. Simtub is also the co-founder of After Dark Sessions, an event night originally conceived to promote melodically driven underground music to the less exposed cities around Asia. “Humans have an intrinsic need to connect, and music has this ability to create instant connections among people. I love to use my music to move crowds, to forge that sense of unspoken communion".

  • Inspired by a desire to promote melodic driven underground music and artists to the lesser exposed cities in Asia; Simtub and Mark Yip created the After Dark series of mix sessions in the summer of 2016. Growing up in the UK during the heydays of the hacienda movement in Northern England and amidst the rise of the underground Rave scenes, both residents were highly influenced by the sound of that era. It led them to express and share a deep emotive connection to the edgier side of electronic music including Techno, Deep House, Progressive, Melodic and Leftfield genres. Ultimately the desire to play out to crowds and move people with music led them to take up DJing and promoting. “We hope to introduce through After Dark Sessions our curated selection of music and Artists/DJ’s to new audiences in cities around Asia and the rest of the World.”

  • Social Room is a loft-style, multi-functional flexible 2100 sq. ft. event space in Central, Hong Kong, ideally located next to the Central Escalator. We serve light lunch from M-F and have regular resident DJs playing until late on weekends. From the crew behind Bassment, one of Hong Kong's most beloved spaces for underground music, comes a new concept designed to expand and enhance the underground experience. The Social Room, perched above the Stanley St. market in Central, has two distinct but conjoined areas: a relaxed bar area with seating, harking back to the outdoor terrace at Bassment; and a large dancefloor area with a raised stage and DJ booth. With an improved soundsystem, double the floor space, and a third floor view, we will continue to bring the vibe of Bassment to Hong Kong in a brand new space. In addition to acting as a home for underground DJs and bands, the open space is also available to rent for corporate and private events, pop-up events, and art exhibitions. Lunch is also served during the week from Monday to Friday, 12pm - 3pm, with affordable pasta lunch sets and other goodies.
