It's been three years since Gilbert Yeung Kei-lung entered the DJ booth at Kee Club. Few might know it, but the Dragon-i boss spun for parties at Kee before starting his own night spot ventures. Yeung deejayed for a record six hours at Kee on Friday, playing classic tracks. 'It's special for me personally. I used to play there for almost two years before opening Dragon-i,' said Yeung. 'Christian [Rhomberg, owner of Kee club] and Mara [daughter of Christian] were like family to me. Our office used to be next to Kee. I remember Mara, when she was only eight or nine years old, often came to our office after school.' Yeung is planning a string of parties in Cannes, Madrid, London and Sao Paulo. 'When we do the gigs overseas, we represent Hong Kong as well,' he said. Reluctant to reveal details, Yeung said he's also working on a lifestyle spot due to come out early next year, which will be different from any of his previous projects. 'I think I've reached the stage that I'm feeling more mature. Now it's the time to execute the interesting projects I have had in mind for many years. Of course I have to find the right venue, and rent has to be practical.'
