Drum 'n' bass DJ Jonathan wishes that Hong Kong clubbers were more open minded to new kinds of music. 'We have really good local DJs playing all different types of music, but I don't think we have the support from the fellow clubbers like that in other countries,' he says. Since his first encounter with drum 'n' bass music in 1994, Jonathan has been trying to push it further among local clubbers. Encouraged by his girlfriend, he has been playing drum'n bass parties ever since the handover, and is now a member of White Label, a local organisation dedicated to drum'n bass. 'I just want to offer the public an option. Drum 'n' bass is special. It's deep and energetic. The sound is more underground,' he said. 'I want people to know that dance music is not limited to hip-hop and house.' As a professional DJ, Jonathan also plays soulful house. He says house is a necessity to get every club dancefloor going. 'This kind of music is easy to listen to. The sound is comfortable and relaxing. I like it for its melodic nature, especially the New York style,' Jonathan says. Jonathan plays a regular soulful house set at Club Nu. On the first Friday of every month, he also holds drum'n bass night Red Label at Yumla, which opened this weekend in Central.
