Off the beaten track White Noise Records in Causeway Bay has organised many of the more avant-garde gigs locally in recent years and the quality series continues next week with an experimental show supported by the Goethe-Institut Hong Kong. Kapital Band 1 - a project by German musicians Martin Brandlmayr and Nicholas Bussmann (below) - started out with the intention of playing an abstract derivative of funk music but ended up creating a unique sound far removed from the grooves of James Brown. The improvisational duo incorporate live drums and electronics, but use random algorithms that leave the audience never knowing what's coming next. Next Friday's April 11 show at Videotage, at the Cattle Depot Artists Village in To Kwa Wan, starts at 8pm and entry at the door costs HK$130. Supporting the Germans will be local experimentalists Skybox, made up of Dickson Dee and Zen Lu. Two of the best in the house House music followers take note: two giants of the genre are due to grace the decks at Dragon-i next month. First up is David Morales on May 10. The Brooklyn native is known as one of the most prolific remixers of his generation and has been around since the birth of house in the 1980s. Most of his better-known remixes have seen Morales transform pop hits into club-friendly tracks, and in this vein he has worked with huge names including Madonna, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross and Whitney Houston. Meanwhile, San Francisco DJ and producer Miguel Migs will take to the decks on May 17. Migs is known for remixing pop stars such as Britney Spears and Lionel Richie, but has made his greatest mark in the area of deep house. Migs is something of a celebrity DJ, his music having received wide exposure on popular television shows such as Six Feet Under and Sex in the City. Both gigs start at 11pm and entry is HK$300 for each.
