vacation [deluxe edition]

mr. hong

Hello, all - hope you're having a great, great day! Mr. Hong back again - my most recent project, 'vacation' is hopefully coming to vinyl.

'vacation' chronicles my summer vacation of 2019, beginning in New York City and ending in Hawaii. I wrote these tracks as a reminder to myself to stay grounded and relaxed in this increasingly chaotic and bustling world.

Nina Tabios of The Bay Abridged writes, "[In 'Vacation'], the salt and sand of Maui are tuned to the sound of tickling keys that skip in time with breezy synths. It's easy-going but vibe-y, and the briny beaches is just as evident as the smoky horns that string it all together at the bridge. Importance of place is evident — the wit of New York, tranquility of Maui — and Mr. Hong is intent on transporting you to these moments, in his state of mind, through a delicate wiring of melody and rhythm."

This deluxe edition includes:
- the already released instrumental version (available everywhere today digitally)
- five NEW and unreleased vocal versions featuring some of my talented friends

Thank you all and hope to see you at the beach. :)

- mr. hong

San Francisco
mr. hong is a 24 year old musician and producer born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. To him, music is a reflection of emotion and experience, and its main purpose for him is to document and record memory, similar to diary entries. His music uniquely incorporates hip hop, electronic, classical and natural elements to evoke a feeling that NEST HQ has called "pure bliss".

Each project provides a glimpse into mr. hong's life and thoughts at that time - in his breakthrough project Long Days.Short Years, mr. hong reminisces on how his college career came and went, quickly and slowly. Three Days Off discusses his constant battle adjusting to work and life in a busy and noisy world.

While he isn't that active in the club and DJ scene, mr. hong occupies himself by collaborating with vocalists and producers from far and wide: from Korea's rising vocalists Summer Soul and Rosy, to Australia's Akacia, to premier MCs Blu and Lord Apex, and producers such City Girl, Barrett Marshall and many more. His debut full-length album, Midnight, was released February 2019 and is available today on streaming platforms as well as on a limited edition vinyl.
