YETI OUT Radio presents “Likewise Sessions” EP3 Featuring 南洋派對 N.Y.P.D.
The final episode of YETI OUT’s ‘Likewise sessions’ features 南洋派對 N.Y.P.D.
Hailing from the industrial high-rises of Tai Kok Tsui, Hong Kong, 南洋派對 N.Y.P.D. (which stands for “Drifters of South Asia”) release a self-titled LP on Silk Road Sounds, distributed by LA’s Alpha Pup Records (home to Flying Lotus, Thundercat, etc). Adding a kick of synth-heavy dance to Hong Kong’s post-punk scene, the debut record is a satirical love affair with the city that never sleeps and pays homage to the forgotten Canton folk style “Namm Yam” – which is a specific singing style that circulated Hong Kong’s opium dens and brothels before fading away in the 1930’s due to government crack down.
Always exploring new sounds, 南洋派對 N.Y.P.D. delve into a mellow hybrid electronic set in departure from their usual high energy mosh pits. The extended, improvised performance reworked their debut LP’s singles “Gai Gai” and “18/F” amongst others, in a laidback spontaneous stance. Offset by the dimly-lit warehouse ambience, the boys explore soundscapes in two parts 0:00 and 8:30, cutting through syncopated layers with synth, samples and canto slang.
Yeti Out 聯乘 Clockenflap Music 嘅 “Likewise Sessions” 最後一擊有南洋派對N.Y.P.D.,一直都 keep住探索新方向，新聲音嘅佢哋，今次呢個特別 live session 會變化出咩係呢能量，實在令人拭目以待。聽日，今個星期四晚上9點，唔好錯過喇喂。
