Ouissam (Snug)

After a decade in Asia, Ouissam Mokretar is now a regional entity that has managed to change the music scene wherever he has laid down roots. His approach to a dance floor is as simple as it is intuitive and elegant: nothing that can make a room shudder with joy is barred from his selections. As the architect behind Hong Kong's Cliche Records, he reshaped local dance paradigms. Homesick and Fragrant Harbor imprints followed before a move to Hanoi when he founded Savage and its monthly queer soirée Snug and Equation festival, now in its fifth year. Moving effortlessly between disco, house and techno, long-lost gems collide with cutting-edge grooves to produce a sonic aesthetic that is simply irresistible.
