Blue Frog Sat, 10.30pm

The jazzy, atmospheric side of the drum'n'bass movement owes its existence to LTJ Bukem, a British DJ/producer whose masterstroke was to apply his love for classical and fusion music to the rough and tough sounds of the early jungle explosion.

Backstage Live May 16, 10.30pm

As a drum 'n' bass DJ based in Singapore, Kiat's big break came the only way it seems to happen in Asia: he was spotted by a visiting superstar. Hong Kong's Lee Burridge was picked out by Sasha. In Kiat's case it was Goldie, the 1990s legend who helped take the hardcore genre mainstream briefly.

Outtakes

Japanese band a real Toe-tapper

The health of a city's music scene can not only be gauged by the number of big-name acts passing through town - and there have been many since the opening of AsiaWorld-Expo - but also visits by the smaller, quirky outfits who add variety to the weekly gig listings.

Wild about jungle

DJ ARKHAM is one of Hong Kong's few drum'n'bass activists. After 10 years of hard work, he says local people's reception towards drum'n'bass music is becoming more positive.

'Whenever I play, the dance floor fills up pretty quickly. You find more people dancing than standing at the bar - this can only be a good thing.'

Club master

DJ STEVE BAMFORD is the resident DJ at C Club in Lan Kwai Fong. He has been DJing for 12 years, and began spinning in Hong Kong and Asia four-and-a-half years ago.

Bamford kicked off his DJ career when his family opposed his music. 'I began to DJ because my family was tired of the constant loud music and I needed somewhere to play my huge vinyl collection,' he says.

Simple Things

(Ultimate Dilemma Records)

Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker, the London duo behind Zero 7, could make a strong case for being among the more unlucky music-makers in the business. With their debut album, Simple Things, they have produced a lush, broad panorama of chill-out tracks that show style, class and a little of that je ne sais quoi.
