4pm Colin Ho
Colin Ho lives and works on Bidjigal and Gadigal country and his ancestry is from Guangzhou in southern China. He b2bs with Teresa Tan as part of the duo Lo Sai Sai Lo and also co-produces and occasionally co-hosts on Down Low Disco - Lorna Clarkson's eclectic electronic music show on 2SER. He helps run the Left Feels music and DJ collective, and has held residencies at the Parramatta Lanes Festival and as part of Lo Sai Sai Lo at the Australian Museum, and DJed at parties and clubs like Freda's. In his sets, he always seeks to represent, respect and acknowledge that DJing, club culture, dance music and popular music has Jamaican and Black roots. While his music selections are pretty eclectic, he likes to play warm and welcoming songs with good rhythm and basslines - and frequently plays eclectic 70s pop from around the world, cosmic and spirited dance jazz, first wave Chinese-Jamaican dub/rocksteady, vibey instrumentals, funk, breaks, psychedelic Paradise Garage and Loft-era disco.
As a self-described sculptor of sound existing and creating on Gadigal land, South Korean artist, AnSo’s works are ever-evolving, like a blob of clay on a throwing wheel, the hands of the sculptor, feeling, moulding, collapsing, rising. 'Come Find Me', out Friday 26th November, will be their third release after their previous hyper-pop coming-out single 'So Damn Loud'. The new single captures a darker side of AnSo, diving into harsh realities and painful experiences growing up as an inevitably naïve female in an unforgiving world. AnSo’s music is raw and confronting, the back-and-forth weave of Korean and English lyrics representing the way their thoughts sound in their head. AnSo’s uniqueness of sound comes from their love of field recordings and collecting found sounds, manipulating, distorting, and sculpting sounds to how they see fit, creating a world of experimental pop that is entirely AnSo’s to explore and share.
