Aug 1: HONNE

HONNE is the electro-soul brainchild of Londoners James Hatcher and Andy Clutterbuck. Taking notes from legendary musicians like Stevie Wonder, the Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye and The Supremes, HONNE reinvents classic soul music as you know it, distilling it with poppy synths and giving it a funky electronic edge. The result is extremely danceable and inescapably catchy. It’s been dubbed baby-making music at its finest – soul-baring lyrics layered overtop sultry R&B beats. Catch the suave duo's China debut at Tango and in the meantime, read our recent intervew here.

Wed Aug 1, 8.30pm; RMB320; Tango, see event listing.
