Kongkretebass have hosted some of the best Drum & Bass / Dubstep events in Hong Kong. Named by “TIMEOUT Magazine (Hong Kong)” as “Ever-present and deeply knowledgeable promoter”, Kongkretebass has been instrumental in the growing of the bass music scene in Hong Kong.

Wash ventured into music in the late 90s when living in Sydney, Australia. He took to deejaying in the year 2000 with breakbeats, hip hop and later Drum & Bass. With over a decade of DJing, DJ Wash has developed his skills on the turntables in numerous performances throughout Asia as well as on the international stage.

Being the first Chinese born Drum and Bass Producer from Hong Kong to be released not only in China, but in Europe and America. His first release came in the form of a remix, where was asked by renowned Czech Republic’s Trash Pop band “100°C“ on “INDIESCOPE Records” to remix for their album “Brunt Rock” released in 2008. Having relocating to Germany in early 2012, his sound was quickly noticed by the local peers, and his first release can be found on a Dresden, Germany local CD Compilation called – Musik Freunde Kumpilation. Which was released in June 2012.

Since the start of 2013, Wash has had a string of releases signings.

REVIEW // Sónar Barcelona’s 20th International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art

This year, Kongkretebass was honored to take part in the media coverage for Sónar Barcelona 20th anniversary, and we can truly say, they celebrated in STYLE!  The amazing diverse range of music from the Sonar by Day, into the Sonar by night was really something each music lover has to experience once in their life time!

From the Pet Shop Boys, to Bat For Lashes to Sherwood and Pinch, to one of our new favorite Trap DJs – Melé, the diversity in the few days were something that most festival have hit and missed, yet Sonar brought together music lovers from around to word and showcased the past heavy hitters, to the recent up-and-coming names.

Our Sonar experience started on the Thursday, where we ventured mostly into the Sonar+D, Market Lab and the Hands on Area, where people are encouraged to interact with multimedia designers,  new and exciting products.

Coupe of stand outs for us was the Glassworks: Cubpix , which is an interactive cube where multiple users can  interact with these cubes which can react to users in  usage.

We were not sure how we could use it in a every day bases, but needless to say, we had a lot of fun playing with it at the display stand.

Another one of our favorite at the Market Lab was the L8 Smartlight.  This small light box is capable of linking to your mobile device, where it can display any email received, messages from Facebook, Twitter etc.

The L8 Smarlight is also capable of auto dimming if the surrounding light to bright than it, Noise Sensor, Motion Sensor etc.

Having being told that they have already sold over 3500 units, expect to see this little L8 to hit stores soon, with plenty of users from young to old be fascinated by it’s incredible functionality.

Now… On to the Parties.

Sonar by Day which runs from early afternoon until 10pm, act by names like Mykki Blanco, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Rob da Bank, James Lidell, but the two that really impressed us on the Friday was Sherwood and Pinch. To our surprise, the crowd was a bit thin to start with, as they were the last set of the Sonar by day in the Sonar Hall. But musically, it was nothing we have heard in a long time, the true boundary breaking dub vibes with the signature Sherwood and Pinch’s individual vibes rolled into one hour of Live set.
We were right down the front of stage, and to our left, there was none other than Ms. Mary Ann Hobbs head nodding and bouncing along side the crowd.

Sonar by night has to be the highlight for a lot of people,  as most of the big acts perform in the new venue of Fira Gran Via L’Hospitalet.
The venue is y far one of the biggest indoor venues we’ve been to. From the main stage Sonar Club, where Bauuer and Kraftwerk 3D was, going into Sonar Lab, to Sonar Car, and lastly, into Sonar Pub, where I personally think, was where the action was!
Bat For Lashes wasa very welcomed surprised. Her performance was inspiring and very up lifting, a true class act. But my personal highlight of Sonar has to be Jurassic 5‘s come back show!

From the get go, they started with a bang. Playing all of their classics from Concrete Schoolyard, What’s Golden, to Quality Control, all the best of the best, and the crowd was NOT disappointed! Was really an hour of power, and was really was great seeing the band get back together after so many years away.

All in all, Sonar 20th Anniversary left us wanting more! And what a location to host  it! The beautiful city of Barcelona, over the 4 days, played a true host to the 120,000+ Sonar parties goers (as well as their regular tourist of course). We could not say how delighted we were to be partying in such a beautiful city.

Thank you Sonar, you have left a mark, we will be back! And for all those who are thinking about travelling to Barcelona in the near future, make sure you put Sonar on the “must-do” list!

New Drum & Bass mix: Kongkast # 188 – feat. ANADONIC (Perth / Australia / Hong Kong)

This week on KONGKAST, we head back East to our home town of Hong Kong, to check out who we think is one of the local up and coming deejays to watch – ANADONIC (Perth / Australia / Hong Kong).

Originally from Perth, Australia, Anadonic have been based in Hong Kong since 2010. With his love for all things music, he quickly fell in love with what Hong Kong had to offer in terms of underground electronic music scene, particularly the bass heavy nights put on by the likes of Kongkrete Bass and Heavy HongKong.

Not long after his endeavors into the Hong Kong deejay scene, Anadonic’s knowledge and passion for bass music was quickly noticed by the founder of HEAVY Hong Kong. Since middle of 2012, Anadonic found him self performing at different spectrum of Bass music, including Dubstep, Juke, Footwork and of course, Drum & Bass. In the short period of time, he is seen supporting the HEAVY Hong Kong local events as well as support for regional crew such as Bay Beats Club (India), as well as the likes of  Tes La Rok, Dub Phizix and Sabre.

Many thanks to ANADONIC for this rolling bit of Drum & Bass for Kongkast!

New Bass Music mix: Kongkast # 176 – feat. PHON.O (50 Weapons, Monkeytown / Berlin, Germany)

This week on Kongkast, we are moving a little away from our usual flavor of Drum & Bass or Dubstep, instead, we have a very special mix by one of the headline artists whom we have had the delight of seeing perform a Live Set at the recent MELT! Festival 2012 – PHON.O (50 Weapons, Monkeytown / Berlin, Germany).

PHON.O started to play records with his mate Apparat in the early 90s. Since 1998, PHON.O started to create his own music and emerged in the spring of 2000 with his first release, on Cytrax. In 2008 the results of CLPs (Chris de Luca plus Phon.o) dirty collabo got released as the EP Ready Or Not on BoysNoize Recordings, which included remixes by Diplo and Mixhell. With the beginning of the new decade Phon.o started working on new songs and put his hands on remixes for Modeselektor, Boys Noize, Schlachthofbronx and Robot Koch.

Since 2010, PHONO.O have had consistant releases on various labels including the mighty Modeselektor’s “50 Weapons” and as well as “Monkeytown Records”, so expect plenty more from PHON.O in the future to come.
Also, do not ever snooze if you ever have a chance to see PHON.O play a Live set, his Live performance is surely something to remember.

Many thanks to PHON.O for this very unique mix on Kongkast!
