With local regular residential support from Swiss DJ Ouch! & German Chris Wolter and loopy, sick visuals by Swedish Vietnamese Erol we are once again United Nations of Techno in Saigon.
You already know Heart Beat Saigon as the purveyors of techno in the past bringing you artist like Antigone, Shifted, Henning Baer, Marco Shuttle, Etapp  Kyle, Ed Davenport, Oliver Deutschmann and many more. 

► NEWS: the new year sees the premiere of brand new techno side-project called NIHX. Released independently on Bandcamp, the project’s debut EP entitled 001 is nothing short of exhilarating. Propulsive, riveting and immediate, all of these four tracks are perfectly suited to sending peak-time floors in a frenzy.
As for his immediate plans, Xhin is part of Budapest’s massive Hyperspace Festival in April, where he’ll be sharing the decks alongside acts like Rebekah, Chris Liebing and many others.
Further down the road, the prolific producer also has an EP on Midnight Shift and possible full-length album lined up.

► FULL BIO Xhin (pronounced as ”sheen”) has been crafting ominous cuts of cutting-edge elec- tronic music since 1997. Building a forte in sound design, he is best described as a sound futurist. His identical rhythmic structure and compositional techniques which incorporate elements of techno, tight sub bass, ambient and IDM delivers a hint of chaotic soundscape amidst artistry. A Singaporean by birth and residence, he inde- pendently released ”Xycle”, a self-promotional ep that made the industry to stand up to take notice, in early 2003. He then followed with his debut album, ”Superso- nicstate” the following year.
In 2006, his talent has been discovered by a German independent record label Me- erestief. With a remix for Five Green Circle’s track entitled Ronan’s BBQ has created a storm over Europe, fully supported and charted by heavy weights from the world of electronic music.
An active DJ in the Singapore club culture he has played extensively in a number of clubs and various events like ZoukOut, Good Vibrations, Gilles Peterson’s World- wide Festival, Singapore Fashion Festival and for fashion label Woods & Woods runways. In 2007, Xhin was invited to play at the important electronic music festival, C/O Pop in Cologne Germany and the rst outdoor electronic music festival in Ha- noi, together with various good acts from the far east.
Besides releasing and remixing, Xhin also got involved in various miscellaneous projects like producing music and sounds for Nike, Nokia and fashion label like Woods & Woods among others. He also appeared as a special guest tutor on elec- tronic music production using Ableton Live for Red Bull Music Academy Info Ses- sions II in Singapore.
In 2009, Xhin joined Berlin’s new techno label, Stroboscopic Artefacts to release his dark, intense and experimental sounds. From the results of his new releases for the label, he has done it again. Heavy rotation from the big boys like Speedy J, Luke Slater, Ben Klock and many more. This will be yet again the beginning of an old new direction for him to explore and experiment sounds even deeper for his future releases.

Releasing his signature sound on Heart Beat’s imprint with his latest techno release of Chanhy by night and  “Scorpion” following “Bubi”. Made his debut in 2004 as DJ and in 2008 his first set in Vietnam during the Hanoi Soundstuff Festival. Now also performing and releasing under his Alias Phuc Long on HRBR a new imprint with BAX as head honcho. 

►VISUALS by EROL – no light show will be needed, standing all night besides the DJ’s this one man live show called Erol produces the visuals that will entangle with the sonic typhoon the artist create and release. It is the Lightning going with the storm, the techno Viking god  in person and hard NOT to get hypnotized by his creations.

Now operating from a new hideaway location with a great view on the skyline and Saigon river as well as a sunrise after party experience guaranteed. the ‘Obs’ is already legendary in the whole SEA region. Due to the selection of international guest that performed here and the late night opening hours, the first we might say heart beat did greatly contribute to.
