More of the best

DJ Sasha (above) has been booked to play in Hong Kong on Christmas Eve.

'He's the world's best DJ,' says our source.

After last weekend's appearance of Dimitri and next month's date with Paul Oakenfold, this makes Sasha the third 'World's Best DJ' to spin his magic in Hong Kong in as many months.

Sounds to us like the record's stuck.

The legendary Hacienda club is coming to Hong Kong for summer. Well, at least one of its founding DJs, Jon Dasilva, is. The Manchester acid house pioneer will play at C Club for three months from June 13.

Appalling conditions at rip-off gig

I am a 31-year-old director of a major shipping company based in Hong Kong who just happens to love dance music.

Last Saturday night at the Convention and Exhibition Centre, after a hefty $450 entrance fee in advance (or $540 on the door), I arrived at the Paul Van Dyke gig only to be bitterly disappointed.
