It has been one hell of a September! (and literally...October too!)

First, Eric Lau came thru to the special edition of TheGetUp! and performed a hard hitting energetic set that had everyone's mind blown with a selection of classic Jay Dee productions, to rare unreleased beats, disco, boogie and soul, good times for sure!

The we farewelled our brother DJ JUMBO for his return to the land of the rising sun, we wish him all the best with Kumiko and await their return...very soon.

Aside from various other gigs here and there...we present the October 2011 THEGETUP!, which will feature our new friends DJ KITCHOM from Tokyo, and the one and only Mr. NRVS aka Drew from San Francisco.

THEGETUP! is proud to present, Eric Lau (Ubiquity Record)

Straight from London UK, Eric is one of the most critical acclaimed producer in recent years. This would be Eric's formal debut performance in Hong Kong, which will feature Eric doing a 2 hr DJ set ranging from his signature production, soul, boogie, and broken beat vibrations.

Eric Lau (London, UK)

Eric Lau is a London-based producer, known for his work with an array of international artists such as Lupe Fiasco, Dudley Perkins, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Guilty Simpson, Oddisee, Muhsinah, Kaidi Tatham, Wildchild, Olivier Daysoul, Tanya Morgan, and a family of artists from London including Floating Points, Finn Peters, Tawiah, Rahel, Fatima, Szjerdene, and several others.

Lau’s debut album ‘New Territories’, released through Ubiquity Records (LA) to great critical acclaim was nominated as one of Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Top Albums of the Year 2008, and established Eric as a key name at the forefront of progressive British production talent.  2010 saw the release of the V2 E.P through Kilawatt featuring Washington DC’s finest Muhsinah and Oddisee fused with musicianship from Bugz in the Attic maestro Kaidi Tatham . His most recent full length release, Makin’ Sound, an instrumental album on Kilawatt, required a second vinyl pressing after selling out in two weeks, and one of his proudest recent achievements, the single Eric Lau & Friends “See and Under Standing”, raised a substantial sum for Save The Children and saw his success continue throughout 2010.    

In addition to Lau’s production’s work he is also a promoter and DJ, holding down residencies (Pause at Market Place, Tomorrow at the C.A.M.P.), featured guest slots around the world, and mixes (BTS Radio). Eric also feels very strongly about supporting young people and emerging talent, and regularly mentors and lead music workshops across London.  

2011 looks extremely busy for Lau, who is set to release a follow up to the much loved instrumental LP Makin’ Sound with a new offering called Quadrivium. He will also start work on his second full album entitled One of Many. You can also expect many collaborations, production work and remixes for several other artists.

11/3 (Fri) TheGetUp! @ Insenses : The ReCap

First, we like to express from our deepest sympathy and to send all our prayers to all the people in Northern Japan right now, it is a horrific disaster that happened too quickly. From the past few days, from the news and reports and images that we've seen, we have witnessed the unity, the love and the strength that each and everyone in the nation has in helping each other to fight through the tough times.

Here're some recaps from TheGetUp! last week, thanks Kumi for the shoots, and of course everyone who came down to show us love. Shout out to the hommies Yui BDP (live ya life mang!), Henry Mullins, DJ Ivan came thru, Miyuki, Janel, Bhavi, Katt, DJ Helen, Wendy Wenn (surprise set, again!), Javier...a few new faces that we met....Jumbo and BS for holding it down.

And of course, Hem and Denz for working with us thru the night.

Till next time...stay well people.

Last week Jumbo and yours truly had the priviledge to DJ and hang out with Yohei Miyake from the Jazzy Sport camp, alongside Mr. Peace-K and Han-chan, for their Hong Kong and China Tour. For those who's not familiar with Yohei's name, check here:

The shows were organized by Torahito Shinohara, aka Tora the Big Boss. Thursday night (13/1) we kicked things off at Bassment (now called In-Senses). At first, i had no idea what really to expect, until I finally see them testing out gears during soundcheck, I know I'm in for something wonderful and inspiring. And I was right! Upon sharing the DJ duty with Jumbo, Peace-K and Han-chan first stepped up and heat things off with a great set of dreamy, light-hearted, mellow folk acoustic music in true traditional Northern Japanese style. Got to mention Han-chan's vocal is simply brilliant matching together with their soundscape.

Then, Yohei steps up and offer an inspiring set of raw, energetic guitar percussion set, his style is so diverse with heavy elements of rock music, but resembles his pasison for reggae, funk, soul, jazz and hiphop. All expressed thru his voice, his guitar, Peace-K's percussion and Han-Chan's backing vocals.

Friday (14/1) night was their performance in Shenzhen, which also went down surprisingly well at the True Color. Then finally the last show in Hong Kong on Saturday (15/1) at En LKF, which was yet an equally memorable night! Yohei's choice of music during his DJ set was also something that really strikes me, going from classic reggae to rock, free jazz, to hiphop. Jumbo and myself were also fortunate enough to have a back-to-back DJ session with Yohei towards the end of the night, shared some of our favourite tunes, beers and laughters indeed!

We like to wish Yohei, Peace-K and han-chan all the best and surely hope to catch up with them sooner or later.
Jumbo in deep concentration.
Yohei taking us into his own musical journey. 
Jumbo the psychedelic percussionist.
K-melo aka Mr 2:00am

Thank you to all those who came thru and party with us. Mr. Sit laced us with a special set, and a surprise by Wendy Wenn! (Yumla) who took out the late hours with her signature sound...the night officially ended at 6:00am yall! Go figure...

Till the next one, be easy...
