Curated by Xiaolin from Hong Kong, HEX focuses on organic sounds and euphoric energy, with themes of nostalgia, dreams and the subconscious rather than focusing on a particular genre. Xiaolin views music as a natural way to evoke contrasting feelings, enabling listeners to escape into an altered state of consciousness - flow state.
HEX’s first international guest Torei is a Tokyo based emerging DJ and label owner. After spending some years DJing and working in a record store in Kyoto, Torei relocated to Tokyo in 2019. He hosts his regular night called Megacity at beloved Grassroots in Higashi Koenji. He launched his own label Set Fire To Me in 2020 with his own 12inch release “SFTM001." He has contributed mixes to NTS and Noods as well as labels such as Coastal Haze and Riddim Chango. For this episode, Torei has prepared a fantastic vinyl-only club mix of obscure 90’s italian progressive house records for our enjoyment.
