If there was one face which came to represent the drum'n'bass movement, it would have to be that of Goldie, with his gold teeth and rough rude-boy looks.

James Zabiela

Volar, May 27, 10pm

Technical wizard James Zabiela has taken the art of DJing to another level. He is one of a new generation of DJs who have embraced technology to layer beats and sounds in a way that can't be done by simply using 12-inch vinyl and twin turntables.

Circuit breakers

There are no heroes in electronic music - and in drum'n'bass even less so.

Human After All


Daft Punk's 2001 comeback, Discovery, gleefully embraced the ridiculous. It was a period during which duo Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo insisted they'd been kidnapped and replaced by robots.

An inhumane experiment

French electronic sensation Daft Punk claimed their new album, Human After All, would revolutionise dance floors. The duo, Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel de Homem Christo, once told the press that: 'The way the music industry is at the moment is allowing us to experiment ... We are setting our own agenda.'

Saturday, 10pm, Yumla, L/B, 79 Wyndham St, Central

Outrageous ticket prices were one of the main factors that took the shine off Hong Kong's clubbing scene, and jaded electronic music fans might be surprised to learn that they can catch one of the leading lights of clubland for free on Saturday.
