Nick Langford founded HK’s regular Vintage Vinyl HK record fairs pulling together locals and expats alike to share their passions. The first vinyl-vendor at Clockenflap, his hobby grew into a label, releasing records for Asian artists such as Qi, Seijiro Murayama, Bastardon, Mr Koo and Tokyo Groove Jyoshi.
A fervent gig-goer he was a regular at venues in the city above – and underground. With Blair Reeve and Joshua Thomson he published press : release, a series of print-only hand-finished zines with original art, reviews, interviews, and images covering HK’s music scene that now sit as part of the HK Heritage Museum’s collection of print culture.

Nick has released a cassette of field recordings and explored sounds that memorialize his time there; from protest to daily life to lo-fi noodling. Nick has also stated that to get a copy of the zine you can contact him directly HERE.
