Chat'n'chill with Kai

Christopher Ruskis and Wen-kai Ying are Chris & Kai, the two young producer-DJ hotshots from New York who famously handed a demo to Deep Dish and were immediately signed to their Yoshitoshi house label. Today, the likes of Sasha, John Digweed and Sander Kleinenberg drop their tracks, which blend house, techno, beats, guts and charm. Here’s what Kai has to say before he hits HK for a gig this Friday, December 17.

Novelle Vague is a French electronica project initiated by producers and instrumentalists Marc Collins and Olivier Libaux.  Collins, who was originally known for francophone trip-hop, moved into club music with UK’s Paper Recordings in the mid-nineties and teamed up with Libaux shortly thereafter.  Working together since 1998 Collins and Libaux know a few things about making good music, and being in the industry so long ensures they know a thing or two more about bringing a new vibe to legendary tunes.

“I’m sorry to say I was very selfish; I never let anything come between me and my career. I’m not saying it proudly, but I’ve lived a very selfish life, particularly when it’s comes to me and my kids. �

17 years after New York house legend David Morales first became a father he admits he’s started mellowing after carving himself a niche as one of the world’s most popular DJs.

Think fun girls can’t sing? Think again! They planned their shopping schedule before they even arrived, they even bought extra suitcases to take home some special “trophies” from Hong Kong. While they’re getting ready to hit the market, they showed off their invincible vocal harmony and musical talent. Putting out their latest album ‘Spin The Wheel’ and traveling around the planet, they are certainly a lot more than just some band which toured with Westlife. Wanna know these 3 Irish beauties more? Bang the door! It’s a girls talk, with Bellefire!

“It hasn’t been a great vintage for electro or techno. However, compared to other genres like trance and commercial house, they still kick ass.”  Dave Clarke: Dj Magazine)

Long renowned as Britain’s prickliest DJ, Dave Clarke was typically blunt speaking to DJ magazine for their latest annual top 100 Poll (he came 31st) though as Britain’s genuinely best techno star, he’s eminently qualified to criticise.

The original (and best) version of Watching Cars Go By first appeared as the soundtrack to a Motorola TV ad in which Felix Da house cat appeared earlier this year, then next popped up on Armand Van Helden’s comeback mix compilation, in which the New Yorker claimed to go rock. British prog god Sasha also created his own highly twisted rock/ house version of the track and stuck it on his own Expander compilation some months back, and now three versions are released individually (though confusingly not altogether).
