Bio

As the founder of Hong Kong's Cliché Records, Ouissam was one of the first in that city to cultivate a disco-house-techno synthesis that shifted the understanding of what could be danced to there. He went on to create the magnetic Homesick and Fragrant Harbour labels before suddenly setting his sights on Hanoi in Vietnam, where he has established the dance mecca Savage where he runs the monthly queer night called Snug. And on top of all that, he found time to curate the coveted Equation festival.

Alongside this, he's been playing at many respected parties around the world, like Panorama Bar in Berlin and Honcho in the USA. His style is colorful, moving effortlessly between disco, house and techno, where long-lost gems collide with cutting-edge grooves to produce a sonic aesthetic that is simply irresistible.
