ARUN R (FRI)
The most recent chapter in Arun’s story is about to be the most exciting yet. The Hong Kong based DJ has peaked over the ten-year milestone of delivering tasteful music, curating for venues, and bringing top artists to his hometown; he is now ready to unleash a new focus on his life in music.
Arun has been patiently carving a new musical journey that is quickly becoming 'his sound'; “Refusing to be pigeon-holed, Arun R can seamlessly drift from balearic vibes to raw deep house, taking his listeners on ethereal journeys of sound and music” (Karma Klique). Despite his adamant stance of having no boundaries, he still remains established in the scene of serious house music lovers.
The HK-born-Indian with an eclectic palate for more than just music, has grounded his feet strongly with a sound that exudes dubby warmth, melodic bliss and ethnic-tinged house grooves, layered with elements of acid, broken-beat & soulful bliss. Tastemakers and connoisseurs alike are already throwing their hands up in appreciation of Arun’s journey-making skills that leave a lasting impression.
His recent gig invitations have included Sonar Hong Kong, Clockenflap (Hong Kong), Wonderfruit (Thailand), Karma Kastle, Café del Mar (Phuket), Saferoom (Bangkok), The Lighthouse (Saigon), Secret Villa Party (Singapore), Broma (Saigon), Potato Head (Singapore), and Kitty Su (Mumbai). And in between the flights, he holds down his regular residencies around Hong Kong city as well as a streaming radio set every month on Fauve Radio.
