JF生來有著音樂的觸角，亦喜愛收藏唱片，擁有豐富的音樂知識的他，打滾十個年頭，總有一堆多元化的歌曲準備身傍，充分了解舞池如何運作，如何令舞池裡人舞動起來。曾與Berghain的Roi Perez、Boris & Barker、日本重量級人物Gonno及Cormac同場演出，JF混音技巧已是相當純熟。另外，JF亦是獨立廠牌Homesick及FGHB的主理人，Powder、Mr. Ho、 Marquis Hawkes、General Ludd及LPZ亦曾在旗下發表作品；兩個廠牌的發行中，不同的混音及重製，都能看到JF對製作人的影響。
周六清晨四時，上環一處人山人海，身貼身，汗貼著汗，眼晴掃過的每個身軀都跟著音樂舞動，由Boy Harsher、Madonna「Bedtime Story」未發佈的混音版本、或是中東風味混上techno的舞曲。 Youry出生於八十年代末的安特衛普，是比利是EBM / Big Beat 的重鎮之一，從商的父親本是爵士音樂家兼製作人，中國柬埔寨混血兒的母親給予他亞洲音樂的觸覺。成長於音樂世家，真正令他愛上跳舞音樂的，是在九十年初於滿地可夜店Stereo親歷Akufen的演出，自此Youry開始收藏黑膠，發掘及擴充其音樂收藏。
2015年Youry的DJ生涯正式開始，開始踏足香港各夜店及音樂節，如Shi Fu Miz、Sonar和Acadana等等；2018年他成為宀的常駐DJ。宀是香港首間能與世界各大夜店相提並論的夜店，在宀Youry有充足的自由去建立他心中的all night long派對。香港正處於多事之秋，而人們能都在派對裡找到共鳴。風高浪急，但Youry決心已下。
Tonight we give the club into solid hands. DJs who built the club and its musical identity from day one, DJs with a solid decade of experience and a musical culture spanning from countless genres and eras - Sunsiare and Youry.
Sunsiaré, birthed Jean-François Amadei, is no new face to the East-Asia scene. A figure whose tastes have manifested themselves by way of the Hanoi based Savage Club - whose early days saw a slew of talent pass through the Vietnamese capital and prompted a resurgence of local electronic artists.
JF is a natural born record digger, whose knowledge of what makes a dance floor move goes beyond the last decade and whose diverse collection begs for sonic exploration. Playing alongside such artists as Berghain’s Roi Perez, Boris & Barker, as well as DJ heavyweights like Gonno (JP) and Cormac, Amadei is not unfamiliar to the art of the mix. JF, whose hands are also behind the Homesick and FGHB labels, gave way to creative minds like Powder, Mr. Ho, Marquis Hawkes, General Ludd and LPZ. Both labels, whose outlets were dedicated to timeless reworks, can be seen riddled with Jf’s own influences.
New pastures have led Jean-Francois to the recently minted Hong Kong-based 宀 club in 2018, in which he holds the utmost weight of talent buying for the clubs weekly programming of European imports, as well as local Hong Kongese as well as regional artists and DJs alike. A pillar for Hong Kong underground nightlife and a staple for any debaucherous dancer seeking audial refuge while in the city, 宀 has quickly become a backbone to an ever-blossoming dance floor community flourishing out of Asia and away from the Euro-centric grip of Dance Music’s recent past.
4am on a Saturday at a packed sweaty club in Sheung Wan, body to body dancing to a range of sounds from Boy Harsher to an unreleased remix of Madonna’s “Bedtime Story” to Islamic chants over a marching techno beat.
Youry was born in the late eighties in Antwerp in a background of the nascent EBM / Big Beat scene in Belgium. His father was a musician and Jazz producer turned entrepreneur, while his Chinese Cambodian mother gave him an Asian sensitivity. But he really caught his dance music bug when he saw Akufen playing at Montreal’s Stereo in the early nineties. Since then Youry became a vinyl addict, building up a meticulously categorised collection.
His DJing career took off in 2015, setting foot at various clubs and festivals in Hong Kong such as Shi Fu Miz, Sonar and Acadana. Since 2018 he became a resident DJ at 宀 Club, widely regarded as the first venue in Hong Kong to be on par with the best clubs in the global dance scene. It is here that he earned the freedom to build up all night long eclectic sets. As the local situation gets more volatile, a party where people can feel free becomes more relevant than ever. The stakes are high, but Youry is determined.
