Pitchfork The brainchild of Amelia Murray, Fazerdaze began as a string of bedroom recordings created late in the night, emerging fully formed in 2014 as her debut eponymous EP. A succinct collection of intimate, beautifully produced dream-pop written, produced and performed by Murray herself, It’s a significant first outing for the young New Zealander with layers of softly crunching guitars swirling over consistently driving drum machines, and sparse electronica. The EP quickly took flight, receiving critical acclaim from blogs and publications around the globe. NME described it as ‘elegant dream pop’, while US blog HillyDilly exclaimed how ‘Fazerdaze transports us to a warm, optimistic sonic space with her glistening synths and mellow acoustic guitar strums’. Since the EP release, Fazerdaze and her band have shifted to another level and with the release of ‘Morningside’ (on legendary NZ label - Flying Out ) Fazerdaze have undoubtedly been the indie break out band of the year. The single ‘Lucky Girl’ is a gloriously catchy piece of indie-pop, the sound track to summer ’17 for indie kids across the globe. Supporting and touring with acts like Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Explosions in The Sky and Connan Moccasin and with sold out UK and US tours, Fazerdaze’s star is rising fast. They stole the show at both Laneways and Others Ways festivals. Faserdaze will be supported by Hong Kong's best dream pop band - Thud ! :)
Tuesday 17.10.2017, 7pm @ Connecting Space Hong Kong Lectures by Bogna M Konior and Angela Su TAXIDERMIC MEDIA: ART, CLIMATE CHANGE, AND THE ANIMAL CORPSE - Lecture by Bogna Konior Pest. Vermin. Plague. Corpse. When the narrative of progress transforms into an unstable condition of forced nomadic life, unpredictable weather patterns, systemic violence, temporary labour and volatile markets, the ability to remain alive and healthy in a decomposing world becomes the pinnacle of success and privilege. Alongside the death of “the human” in the contemporary theory unveils the persistence of illness, pain and pollution as the dominant sensory, aesthetic and political regime. This talk explores how art as an adaptive practice moves on the axes of waste and exclusion, engaging the unproductive, the decomposing and the dead, examining specifically the instances when artists work with the animal corpse and the practice of taxidermy. It examines art as neither “green” nor “environmental,” but as a predatory ecology of excluded, dead, multi-species labour. A FEMBOT’S CONFESSION – Lecture by Angela Su Greetings, my friends. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. You are interested in the unknown, the mysterious, the unexplainable.

Konior is the director of the Institute for Critical Animal Studies, Asia. She holds a Research Masters in Media Studies from the University of Amsterdam and is currently based in Hong Kong.

La dame Noir is formerly a label, a bar, a club (“La dame Noir Dancing”) and some in-house producers based in Marseille / France, mainly concerned with a modern disco sound . La dame Noir’s “disco” can be described as a close encounter between shiny nu-disco, slow haunted house music with a few hints of new wave. Because of this duality, La dame Noir Records lhas been blending original material by stylish new comers like Did Virgo, Johnson or Amevicious as well as confirmed international artists like Pete Herbert, Danton Eeprom, Dicky Trisco or Tim Paris... ￼￼￼ Sir Andrew Weatherall compiled a track from LdN Rds in his 3cds compilation “The Masterpiece”, Dixon recently podcasted another track from the label, and djs like Laurent Garnier, Tiga or Bill Brewster are showing loads of support to La dame Noir Rds.

Hypnotic x SR pres Oliver Deutschmann (Hot Flush, Innervisions, Vidab, Berlin) Date: 21 Oct 2017 Saturday at Social Room Oliver Deutschmann Artist’s Billing - Vidab | Soma | Aim Based in Berlin, Germany ARTIST BIOGRAPHY Berlin's Oliver Deutschmann has gained a reputation over the last 15 years through his pure passion, diverse track selection and an unambiguous mixing ability. Years before he released his first EPs he had already set himself on a path that would see him DJ all over the world, eventually leading to his adopted home of Berghain where he has lit up both rooms of the club dozens of times since first playing there almost ten years ago. Deutschmann displays a distinct unwillingness to be pigeonholed in any one style, and is right at home whether he's warming things up with an understated house groove or thrashing the big rooms with his grandiose brand of techno. While honing his abilities at the controls, he also began testing the waters of production and label ownership, and has since created four labels: Vidab, Falkplatz, Slim Audio and the vinyl only imprint GKNSTR. Releases on Soma, Aim, Caduceus, Etruria Beat, Mobilee, and his own imprints culminated in his 2013 debut album, 'Out of the Dark,' that Resident Advisor described to be "as potent as any techno album released in the last few years." As an impassioned DJ, producer, and label owner, Deutschmann has ensured that his position in the forefront was never a fleeting one, and with numerous EPs on the way, it looks like things will stay that way.
