Subcoat Live A/V Set (Sounds of The Underground)

Fergus aka Subcoat started his explosive DJing career at the mere age of sixteen and, within a year of gracing the decks, he picked up a residency at Heavy Hong Kong and Club XXX - seminal underground dance music nights and a club. His relentless passion for music and DJing drove him straight into the mecca of dance music: London. It only took a couple of weeks before Fergus garnered attention across the UK and Europe, and he soon played his first gig at the Corsica Studios’ famous “Church” night. What followed was a snowball effect, as promoters and venues enthusiastically brought him on board – either a special guest or a resident DJ – for events across the globe, including London, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Vienna, Innsbruck, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Macau.

This newfound popularity and momentum naturally drove Fergus to make his own records under Eton Messy, the popular underground house music label. Shortly after his releases, he and some close acquaintances started their own label, Fine Dining Records, which features a range of the finest and most promising up-and-coming rappers, producers and DJs in the UK. As a result of the sheer amount of genres and gigs Fergus deals with, he has performed under multiple monikers: Subcoat, Furry Groove, Pablo Escobae and, naturally, Fergus Heathcote. When he is not touring, he is busy with various residencies and guest appearances at prominent radio stations in London and Hong Kong, including Radar Radio, Rinse FM, Balamii Radio, Hoxton FM and Hong Kong Community Radio. Following resounding success in UK and Europe, Fergus has returned to Hong Kong and continues to push a plethora of sounds under his new night entitled "Sounds of the Underground". He has also featured in top venues, corporate events and festivals in and around the city; such as Outlook, Bestival, Fools Paradise and Clockenflap.

Since his flourishing return, he has also headlined two Asian tours. Fergus has the natural gift of using music to bring people from all walks of life together. His extensive experience rings true to that statement, as the charismatic artist has performed for high profile companies and artists – from humbling warehouse raves to Armani, Ports 1961, Grandmaster Flash, Damien Marley, Skream, A$AP Mob, Sean Paul, Tempa T, Skepta, DJ EZ, Goldie D Mop, Vhils…the list goes on, and will keep getting longer.
