Have you read the local newspapers & magazines and seen the term Nu Beats to describe the genre of music we call eclectic? Well that just shows the reach of this night and how it has become synonymous with eclectism and a particular style of marrying all genres together be it soul, broken beat, nu jazz or house into one solid groove.
- For the record, we made the word up!  Nu Beats is just the name of the monthly night at Phuture, not the genre that’s played… but hurrah! We’re happy to contribute to the English vocabulary, just remember where you saw it first!

Grant Nelson (UK)
Friday 24 June 2005 at Zouk
From his early years at the now defunct Nice n Ripe label, creating a string of underground anthems that were hammered by djs from both ends of the Atlantic, Grant is one of the most established house dj and producer to come out of the UK. By the mid 90s, Grant started another label - Swing City, where he produced Negrocan’s “Cada Vez”, which became a universal smash topping even the pop charts in several countries and has so far seen worldwide sales of nearly 2 million copies. And besides remix duties for the likes of Bebel Gilberto, Frankie Knuckles, Reel People & The Brand New Heavies, he continues to spread the gospel of funky soulful house music through his gigs all over the world.

At a tender young age of 24, Nic has achieved what most budding djs can only dream of. Starting his own Portent record label at 19, compiling a covermount CD for Mixmag, and DJing all over the world. As a producer (working under his Skylark banner with Andy Chatterly), he scored big with a remix of Tears For Fears’ “Shout”, and has since gone on to remix the likes of Deep Dish and Sandy Rivera. Named the finest resident in the UK by Pete Tong, and receiving props from Danny Howells, Steve Lawler and many others along the way, Nic has now joined the ranks of BBC Radio One’s dance roster, so watch out for this rising star!

Since the birth of Disuye back in November 2001, both Dan F and the label have gained a reputation for being an innovative, topnotch label for breaks. Dan’s releases on Disuye, and on others like Kilowatt Recordings, Mob Records and Sound of Habib, have all gained heavyweight support across the board: Laurent Garnier, James Zabelia, James Lavelle, Hyper, Adam Freeland, Elite Force, Meat Katie, Evil Nine, and our very own Tony Tay all showing appreciation. Apart from DJing and producing, Dan also owns a music bar in Hong Kong, Yumla, which has already been labeled the best thing since the invention of noodles!

Leading brewer and distributor, Heineken continues its partnership with MTV Networks Asia, into its groovy second year on the sponsorship of MTV Urban Beats. The weekly program aimed at satisfying young adult’s thirst for what’s hip and hot in the dance music scene and urban trends – will now carry bonus content for an all-rounded urban lifestyle. The additional element in MTV Urban Beats range from ‘Club Work’, insights into the careers of the night-crawlers in the club scene, to ‘Urban Gadgetry’, reviews on the latest tech fad in the club scene.

In addition to airing on all MTV channels around the world, MTV Asia Aid is also being made available rights free and cost free to all broadcasters globally to maximize distribution and help generate as many donations as possible for primary recipient UNICEF, as well as additional charities in local markets.


There are few truly great clubs in the world and, at their heart, you will usually find a great resident.  Zouk in Singapore is a great club and, somewhat greedily, has loads of great residents spanning a host of genres across its 3 dancefloors.  But, when it comes to floor-shaking big-room house, there’s only one man for the job: Aldrin.  The long-standing resident – quiet and unassuming in person – has let the music do the talking for him over the years, developing a global reputation; garnering praise from A-list DJs by the bucket-load (Danny Tenaglia singled him out as his ‘future hero’ in DJ Mags Top 100 poll) and, when time permits, guest at events around the world.   


Wondering how to get to Guangzhou to see Sasha on his China Tour? Well look no further below is all the information you need to know to make sure you get to join the party on time!
