Hong Kong Counterfeit is a collaboration between John Langdon (a.k.a. Inform3r of Gigolo Records) and DJ/artist Katya Casio. They met in an underground nightclub in NYC where they were experimenting with avant-garde performance art and breaking the rules of fashion. At the time, Inform3r was working on his debut EP "Sex Offender," and Katya was designing clothes using plastic bags and left over junk from industrial factories. Her original creations have been showcased by the NYC Downtown Costume Institute amongst famous designers and performers like Vivienne Westwood, Klaus Nomi, Keith Harring, et al. HKC Recorded their first EP "Metal Disco" in 2001 as a picture disc.

The record fused retro-futuristic cover-art with the sounds of electro-disco bleeps of analogue synthesizers. It featured 3 original tracks plus a remix by Legowelt and Orgue Electronique. Songs from the album have appeared on various compilations. Most notably; Kapital Electro (Universal France), Disco Nouveau (Ghostly International), Vanity Case (Universal France). After long nights in the studio the duo likes watching low-budget movies on late night channels.

One of the B-movies inspired the song “X-Ray Eyes,” in which the protagonist acquires x-ray vision during puberty. The single was released on Lasergun Records with remixes by David Carretta, Savas Pascalidis and Tampopo. Hong Kong Counterfeit has also released an EP under the name “’Lectronix,” on which one of the tracks features vocals by electro pioneer Man Parrish. The album was followed up by a collection of remixes by artists such as Capri (Gigolo), Tampopo (Gigolo), Swimming with Dolphins (Le Tigre) and Kit Builders (World Electric). Read more on Last.fm.
