手洗 (陳翰林)

handwash 來自衣服上面手洗標籤——透過音樂梳理思緒的過程,跟手洗衣服差不多。融合嘻哈外向的觀感,他在節奏跟音符裡取得平衡。

handwash 在香港成長,現定居溫哥華。他的作品涉獵不同主題,例如現代男性主義如何影響人際的關係、冥想對成長及創作的影響,以及離散海外香港人的身份認同等諸如此類的課題。

handwash is a stage name for Hon Lam Chan, who was born and raised in Hong Kong, currently based and actively engaged in Vancouver’s vibrant music scene. handwash’s work often explores themes of masculinity, Asian identity as a Hong Kong diaspora, and topics surrounding how meditation serves his personal growth and creative practice.

As a producer, handwash took the name from washing instruction labels, taking the parallels between garments and music. The interpersonal approach to his process of ‘cleansing’ provides vulnerability to the braggadocious side to hip-hop.

handwash draws sonic inspiration everywhere, from dance to ambient sound. Like many of his favorite contemporary hip hop and r&b artists, Asian identity, his roots, and language make him unique.

handwash will bring a fellow rapper, Hernia, who is based in Taipei, as a special special guest for JMF in Asia. He will perform his Cantonese and Mandarin songs, accompanied by stunning visuals!

"“I know I wanted to write in Cantonese from the get go, It took me a long time to get over that people might not understand. To believe that my music can transcend internationally.” Quote from R&B high tea fairchild radio "
