The KOXX Fred Perry Viewzic Session

The Fred Perry Viewzic sessions is an event series created to bring a larger concert-style feeling to smaller, more intimate gigs. It’s also a regular showcase of less mainstream, awesome Korean bands, with past performers including the superb Glen Check, huge rock band Apollo 18 (who are currently touring Canada) and alt hip hop group Primary...
Interview: Nosaj Thing

Interview: Nosaj Thing

I covered The Creators Project over the weekend for Chincha (more on that to come) and interviewed Jason Chung, aka LA electronic musician Nosaj Thing, backstage at the event. We chatted about the Project, his music – and a little about K-pop – before he headed off to DJ his widely popular tracks to the Saturday...
Cheonggyecheon Stream

Cheonggyecheon Stream

Since I’m from Florida, I’m attracted to anything aquatic. Unfortunately, Seoul is inundated by hills and is a hiker’s paradise. For those of us who are beach junkies, it’s harder to get our fix. I relish any opportunity to spend time by water and my favorite feature in Seoul is the Cheonggyecheon.   The Cheonggyecheon...

Urban Void + Vault 49 Workshop

In collaboration with Beyond Art, who made this video for the event, Platoon have been championing Korean and international artists at their venue for approximately the last week. As well as spending Saturday night at Platoon’s rooftop party, I...

Sunset Breakz

When friends, DJ Helix Squared and MC Lucid got together to throw a self-funded, end of summer beach rave, they knew location would be paramount. So, it must have been an easy choice when they discovered a gorgeous and secluded beach just 20 minutes west of Incheon Airport, where the volume could be on loud...
