Watch that acid rein Anyone who followed the acid jazz explosion of the 1990s couldn't have missed United Future Organization, an impeccably dressed trio from Tokyo who brought a healthy dose of Japanese cool to the global movement. Toshio Matsuura, Tadashi Yabe and Raphael Sebbag made their mark with an infectious mixture of Latin rhythms, jazzy beats and hip-hop attitude. They shot to fame in 1992 by performing at the Talkin' Loud club nights with acid jazz godfather Gilles Peterson. Their second album, No Sound Is Too Taboo, released in 1994 - a journey through bossanova, trip-hop, rare groove and back again - became a milestone release in the genre, and featured the likes of Cleveland Watkiss, Snowboy and the Latin Section, and DJ Krush. Proving that acid jazz never died, Matsuura has been representing United Future Organization on the decks around the world, and will be bringing a box of jazzy, funky, deep, soulful house and rare groove to Armani/ Bar this Saturday night. Put on your trilby hat and turn up at 2/F 11 Chater Road, Central, clutching HK$200 at 11pm. Smokes get in his eyes Outtakes can't remember the last time a performer smoked cigarettes through the corner of his eyes or swallowed 'a few bottles of wine without batting an eyelid', which is why we have to mention tomorrow night's show by Bebe Vampire, although it's not strictly a gig. Along with his smoking and drinking routine, the Cameroonian dancer performs feats of strength, lifting audience members and their tables during the dance/magic show he's bringing from Paris. Another highlight of Bebe's (below) show is his 'red ant dance', named after his frenetic body movements (perhaps induced by the wine-drinking trick). The show at the Nzingha African Lounge, 48-52A Peel St, Central, starts at 9pm and cost HK$250 on the door. Ghost with the most Hip hop haters who say Chinese guys can't rap have obviously never heard Ghost Style (aka Brandon Ho), who will be the main performer at the launch party for new street magazine Juice, at Tribeca in Wan Chai tomorrow night. Ho made his name with the soundtrack to Jay Chou's movie Initial D and cemented his credentials at the top of the local hip hop heap with last year's album Message Is Complete. He'll share the stage with local DJs Joel Lai, Frankie Lam, Jason F and Steve Yau. Tickets are free from www. juiceonline.com.hk.
