Ani Pheobe/Bad Times Disco
Bad Times Disco is a new online record store, pop up party, and radio show in Hong Kong made up of two committed diggers, Ani Phoebe (NYC) and Death M.K. (Japan). Together, they dig for the city's forgotten records - rare Asian grooves, dubby disco, soul, experimental electronic music, 90s techno and more. Their party launch at Potato Head Music Room will regularly feature underrated diggers from across the city and abroad, showcasing talent that focuses on music research, history, and digging culture.
Born in New York City, currently Hong Kong based by way of Rio de Janeiro, Ani Phoebe aka Phoebe draws from a multicultural and multilingual background in her sets, especially influenced by the sounds produced during the 80s and 90s and new, underground productions from different local scenes. Leaning towards obscure, oddball and cosmic synth sounds, she plays across a range from downtempo 80s records to underground techno.
Annnikafizzer performed her first official set only a few weeks ago at an outdoor rave. She has been a radiant supporter of 宀 since the beginning. She’s always had a love for music but in the past year she’s refined her unique style at house parties and around friends. Now she’s taking control of the club for the very first time with a one-and-a-half hour set of upbeat booty-shaking house beats.
DJ Ditto is a HK based Korean DJ who has been playing regularly at 宀 club, 18F and Eaton Radio. She’s Deeply in love with ratchet / hardcore music and anime especially Evangelion but you will be surprised by the extent of her music.
