THE THIRTEEN – 029

Join Clockenflap’s Music Director Justin Sweeting as he serves up another piping-hot baker’s dozen of the best new music from around Asia and the world at large. As well as new singles from Japanese groovesters Nulbarich, Korean singer-songwriter Youra and KL alternative-rock outfit Midnight Fusic, there’s the latest from hotly tipped UK experimental post-punks Black Country, New Road, and a sweet serenade from the ‘South London Sinatra’, Puma Blue.

As the co-founder and Music Director of both Magnetic Asia and the Clockenflap festival, Justin Sweeting has been responsible for giving Hongkongers the opportunity to see a succession of the world’s most compelling live acts over the past 15 years, from New Order, The Libertines, The Chemical Brothers and Sigur Rós to Nile Rodgers, Primal Scream, The 1975 and A$AP Rocky, to name but a few. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Sweeting previously established pan-regional cross-media platform AMP (Asia’s Music Platform) for Channel [V] and Fox, and played a significant role in the development of a reliable touring circuit for international artists in the region, as well as nurturing local grassroots music scenes across Asia. Driven by his insatiable thirst for discovering new music and his desire to forge deeper connections between Asia and the global music industry, Sweeting can often be found spreading the word about Asia's musical potential – and uncovering the hottest new international acts – at prestigious events, festivals and conferences around the world.
