  • Darka

    Darka kicked off his DJ career in late 90s and was the champion of "Hong Kong Pioneer DJ Competition" in 2003. It was a milestone of his spinning career and made himself a well-known figure amongst dance floor. Since then, he has devoted all his vigour to the development of electronic dance music in Hong Kong. His name has come across with many notably DJs and producers, such as Paul Oakenfold, Nick Warren,Timo Maas, Santos , Jimmy Van M, James Zabiela, Tall Paul, Evil Nine, Radio Slave, Tiefschwarz, Butch, Meat Katie, Peace Division, Elite Force, Stelios Vassiloudis, Takkyu Ishino石野卓球, JDS, John Graham (Quivver), Phil K, Adam Freeland, James What, Noah Pred, Luke Fair and Andy Moor. The co-operations with those big guns strongly influenced his music styles and techniques. Deep House is his signature, loops and effects are his trumps. On top of the ones own effort and passion, no doubt Darka's achievements are more or less in connection with his respectable "Master cum mentor" - Mr. David Lam

  • 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".

  • Jupitor
  • 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.
