Just behind the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, the whole garden area was trasformed into a Happy Valley theme (see what I mean here www.diesel.com). With glowing mushrooms, flowers and beautiful people everywhere. The square waterfall area had been converted into a stage where the models glided along. A very fresh, outdoor feel range of clothes.

One of the best features of the night was the fire juggler/eater who came on stage during a small break and took advantage of the outdoors by spinning fire battons into the air.

Then finishing of the night, after all the models had finished their performance, Hong Kong's DJ Christian got the crowds dancing for the rest of the evening.

I know it is quite late but thought I would add it anyway.

Fatboy slim went on after a fine set by his partner from Brighton, scanty. FB, rocked the crowd with a continuous stream of classics old and new from Madonna, Basement Jaxx, Leftfield and of co**** several of his own tracks.

The turnout was huge with especially loads of expats, which ahve been quite a miss in recent parties. The new layout by Groove by having the stage in the centre of the room, allowed Norman to really be a live performer than just the usual dj who stands behind the decks. Norman was rocking with the crowd to each track, surrounded by security and fixed cameras so people all over the hall could see what he was up to.

A great night and a refreshing change to the usual parties of Hong Kong.
This was an event partly organised by ourselves, where 12 Hong Kong djs came together to play for 12 hours live on the net for the longest every broadcast of a dance event in Asia. Thanks to PureDJ for the servers in the USA, allowing the Hong Kong dance experience to be shared by millions all over the world. All djs played sets from House to Trance, including an electric guitar in a set. The place was full all night long for this chairty event which rased a good sum for the Red Cross.
The night rocked on arrival, when John was spinning in the main room of Hitec. Over in the other room Christian was spinning breaks right next to a simple roller coaster track. The Mauro upped the pace on the decks and the crowd went wild, great lighting but could have done with some more decor. Two great crowd pleasers in one night.

What did you think of the night?
With a quick visit to an alcahol buffet before hand, I think I was feeling pretty good at 1am entering the gates. Jon Carter was rocking it but no sara cox around. After interviewing him briefly he told me after his set that he had to leave straight away to get back to Ibiza, offered to come with him in his luguage for a bit of that balleric flava but unfortunately turned me down. Green Lazers panned the dance floor just above the crowd which is probably the best visual tool to have in a place like hitec. Great night great tunes and even more beer at the bar!
HKrave, introduced some lazer imagery this time round beaming accross the crowds, from all sorts including star wars figures. Gareth got the crowd warmed up followed by hard tribal dj toby. Then on the decks bad boy bill did his usual unique mixing style followed by trance master from the US, Christopher Lawrence. Ishino followed only to leave what I believe to be the great techno dj for the future vitamin d only a short time to show us what hes got. Difficult venue to decorate, but hkrave had a good shot at it.
With the Robot decor in action there were Metors all over the place doing the best you can with the large venue. Terry and Nathan worked on their tech house in the 2nd room where platipus hammered their trance and uplfiting tunes, followed by max Graham and the track 'It began in Afrika' by the Chemical Brothers. Some hot visuals by Fierce, hope they use them again at other events.

First time to Boom, which is normally known as a Hard House, Trance club. Seeemd just the right size for a large gathering of Drum n Bass fans. Arkham was on the decks upon arrival getting the crowd going with his rewinds. In the bar area more breatbeat and mellow tunes while you had a drink. Dieselboy then cam on and gave a performance as good as the year before.

What did you think of the night?

Lee was welcomed back warmly by the crowd, after the ex hong kong dj who has made it big in the UK spun record after record pleaseing the crowd each time. Then Adam, who almost was not booked, came on slamming the breaks, but unfortunately was more camera shy than Lee.

What did you think of the night?
In the small venue of Hardy's 2, Sven rocked the joint for hours on end, then made his way over to CETop to keep the hours of techno and tech house tracks running until daylight.
