For die-hard EDM fans, the songs "Legend" and "How We Party" are definitely familiar, as they marked the top hits from the rising EDM duo Vinai. As Vinai expands its footprint from Italy to all across Asia, the brother duo came to Hong Kong for a late-night show last month and sat down with Billboard Radio China to talk more about their new music, touring and 2018 plans.

Alessandro Vinai shared his feeling about Hong Kong, describing the place as one of his favorites. Talking about the Hong Kong show, he expressed his expectation for a crazy night out and more interactions with the local fans. As EDM grows bigger in Asia, touring in Greater China is definitely becoming an enjoyable experience for DJs as the Chinese audience always brings extra energy and good vibes to every show.

"We came here in China three years ago; the situation has now changed a lot. That's why we love to do shows in China," Alessandro shared.
