Diggin' in Hong Kong with Paul Au Pt. 1

Wax Thematique

Record digging in Hong Kong with Paul Au and Nathan Womack. Our first Wax Thematique podcast begins with label founder Nathan Womack (aka producer Paces Lift) digging for records with legendary record champion and living music encyclopedia Paul Au, in his Hong Kong apartment full of vinyl. When we say “full” we mean 30,000 records..and when we say “apartment” we’re talking 500 square feet. Paul’s story of escaping the 1970’s Vietnam draft to ultimately selling vinyl on the streets of Hong Kong to survive has been widely covered on the ‘net. But this episode is a more comfortable, casual dig session between two people who love the art of finding a great record buried amongst many thousands. Some of the music found that day plays between chats with Paul about his love of vintage vinyl as he repeatedly hands Nathan many a record and juggles customers coming and going. If you're ever in Hong Kong take some cash and bring a curious ear as Paul is a great story teller. There's more amazing records here than most people realize, you just have to spend the time digging for what you want. Tip: bring a portable record player for a more efficient experience. Photos Nathan took visiting Paul’s vinyl lair (which Paul calls “Vinyl Hero”) from 2017-2019 are here. Feel free to rate and subscribe to our podcast.
