"I’m catching a flight to Hong Kong with one aim — to see these guys".........GILLES PETERSON
"Post-punk sax mingled with ghostly choruses and lo-fi hi-tech electronics...this is a party worth joining".........MOJO
"Both smart and cool".........DJ MAG
"The brilliant Blood Wine or Honey".........TOM RAVENSCROFT
“A unique take on modern dance floor tropicalia...draws the line beautifully between Post-Punk, NY Disco Not Disco and Afro-Latin outernational sounds.".........DOM SERVINI
“Elaborate carnival percussion...riotous singalongs...celebratory brass elements”.........ELECTRONIC SOUND
"Blissful noise...sheer unbridled fun”.........THE 405
"Thoroughly welcomes the listener into its samba parade carnival of interweaving drums, chants and saxophone”.........THE ARTS DESK
"Subversive, free-spirited experimentations” .........STAMP THE WAX

Surrounded by the throb of heavy machinery, the scent of dried fish, and the humidity of the South China Sea, electronic outfit Blood Wine or Honey have honed their manic hypno-tropicalia in the industrial warehouses and hidden rural hamlets of Hong Kong.

BWoH are multi-instrumentalists / vocalists James Banbury (synths, bass, cello, etc), Shane Aspegren (drums, synths, electronics, etc) and Joseph von Hess (saxophone, wind instruments, percussion, etc). Collectively, their witch's brew of brazen sax themes, lo-fi/hi-tech electronics, motorik drums, group-sung vocals, wonky tactics and party palpitations results in a ritualistically euphoric sound experience, taking notes from post-punk, dance floor experimentation, bass/soundsystem music and tropical polyrhythms.

Their hotly anticipated debut album 'Fear & Celebration' is the culmination of a painstaking process of writing, recording and production for the trio. After the band's live debut at Sonar Festival Hong Kong, their breakout track 'Anxious Party People' shocked dancefloors all over the world, receiving a shortlist nomination at Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards for 'Track Of The Year' and catching the attention of major radio outlets such as BBC 6 Music, Worldwide FM, NTS, Radio Nova (France), KCRW (US), RTÉ (Ireland) CR2 903 (Hong Kong) and Bandcamp Weekly.

This is deep dance-floor for every mind's ear.
