Founded Club Kowloon in 2017 a Hong Kong based art, music and lifestyle company - promoting underground music and organising events. With the aim of breaking up the pre-existing hierarchy of the small HK underground scene, Club Kowloon is opening up for new and interesting collaborations with a different angle.
The musical output of CK is firmly positioned within house, techno and minimal - inspired by the European groove-driven, steady and well curated sounds and parties. As the name suggests, Club Kowloon focuses on the Kowloon (mainland) side of Hong Kong - a city where most parties and events happens on Hong Kong Island. CK is establishing a mixed local and international scene based on freedom of expression, the combining of music and arts, collaboration between talented designers, DJs and VJs, and a concentration on the local community.
Club Kowloon has organised parties in Hong Kong, Spain, Romania and Norway. With a fast growing local and international presence, Club Kowloon is becoming a platform for new, old and up-and-coming artists rooted in the land of the nine dragons.
