Drawing influence from the likes of John Mayer, Pharrell Williams, D'Angelo and Childish Gambino FØNX delivers RnB-infused pop with jazz, funk and soul influences, merging catchy grooves, memorable hooks and intricate guitar licks with inspired lyrical content. Coming from a musical background FØNX started learning guitar at the age of seven and was soon introduced to rap and hip hop, sparking his enthusiasm to start writing lyrics and create backing tracks from samples. FØNX has recently been in the studio working with Grammy Award-Winning Producer Tommaso Colliva (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Dalmon Albarn) and during the summer released his new single Can't Get Enough on Honey Motive Records via Absolute which reached no.10 in the Main Club Charts with a club remix by VARGENTA. Now back in the studio working with Producer Hugh Worskett (Will Joseph Cook, Rae Morris, Leo Standard) on new music, 2018 is shaping up to be an exciting year for this upcoming artist. FØNX has always been a deeply independent artist. Largely self-taught, his work nestles between the margins of R&B and pop, hip-hop and electro, all while treading its own path. - Clash Magazine.

Master Lee Shing was born in 1923 in Hoxan in Southern China. Lee Shing moved to Hong Kong where he met and became friends with two Wing Chun experts, Lok Yiu and Jiu Wan. They were two of the four leading practitioners of Wing Chun in Hong Kong who became known in Wing Chun circles as the “Four Kings of Wing Chun”. The other two were Leung Sheung and Tsui Shan Tin. It was not long before an exchange of styles took place between Lee Shing, Lok Yiu and later Jiu Wan. He was the European and UK president of the Yip Man Martial Arts Association, and founder of the International Lee Shing Wing Chun Martial Arts Association.
