Patience is certainly a virtue for those who follow the simple universal mantra. For our dear friends of the night in Hanoi, this weekend is a testament to that virtuosity.
Mid-summer this year, Mixmag Asia teamed up with Hanoi’s 1900 Le Théâtre to launch Resident Revival, an on-brand programme by Mixmag Asia that shifts the focus of club promotions and punters expectations from a novel or popular guest DJ, to their reliant, loyal and often overshadowed resident artist. Travel bans were only a trigger for us to stir the controversy of neglected local resident DJs into a positive and actionable programme that, well, benefits everybody involved.
Our first outing to 1900 Le Théâtre was with NgoKien, a legend and pioneer of the Vietnam scene, at the end of June. Our second outing scheduled for August 1 ended up being culled by COVID-19, with the entire country going into lockdown for about a month. With that now over, Resident Revival returns this weekend with the trusted and reinforced sounds of Dustee, founder of Dusted Recordings and long-standing resident of 1900 Le Théâtre.
Dustee sets the bar high for Vietnam’s clubbing community with his renowned popularity amongst electronic music lovers, his ability to always be musically at the forefront and commitment to the sustainability of the local DJ eco-system that is currently seeing exponential growth.
If you’ve been following what’s trending in Vietnam, you’ll have certainly come across Dusted Nights, a new video project that fuses an in-depth focus on the artist, live streaming and urban visuals, all packaged into a perfect party vibe. Check out Dustee’s episode below.
Now that you’re ramped up for a night with Dustee, you can get yourself booked in for his turn at Mixmag Asia’s Resident Revival night this coming Friday.
