Hong Kong Dong

Hong Kong Dong (b) + Simon Hold (b)


​It’s sweet, it’s sour, it’s trashy, it’s nightmarish and it’s fun. Hong Kong Dong!  
Hong Kong Dong is back with a new track, called 'Touching Underwear'. 
A soft spoken song arranged by compelling synths and snappy rhythms. 
Hong Kong Dong likes to tease. You know somethings coming, but you never know what.
Touching Underwear is the first song of the full album ' KALA KALA ' , ready for release on october 6th.
A sunny warm album recorded in a stream of consciousness on location in Denia Spain. 
No preparations were made, no rules, no holding back. 
It’s sweet, it’s sour, it’s trashy, it’s nightmarish and it’s fun.

Simon Hold: former half of the defunct Pitch & Hold duo under the banner of which he operated from 2006 to 2011, Simon Halsberghe steps up on Brussels’ very own Vlek with his debut solo EP as Simon Hold. 

First heard on Vlek's 2016 mix for Resident Advisor as they were appointed label of the month by the high-ranking platform last autumn, 'Maqam Bruxelloise' reflects the wide-angle beauty and compelling diversity of the Belgian capital and its throbbing heart, a city at the confluence of cultures and languages. Across a finely-layered interplay of synthetic modulations and intricate polyrhythms, Hold lays out a riveting kaleidoscope of pattern-welded textures and prismatic synth motifs played and arranged accordingly to a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Arabic maqam system of improvisation the track draws its title from. An ode to Brussels' all-embracing effervescence.

This event is a collaboration between les ateliers claus, Beursschouwburg & Autumn Falls.
