Ice T Live in Concert feat. DJ Afrika Islam (US)
Saturday 16 July 2005 at Zouk
“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star Ice T was raised in the gang-infested, pimp-heavy streets of South Central, Los Angeles. Ice-T’s first on-screen appearance came in ‘84 in the groundbreaking movie “Breakin’” where he performed the seminal hit “Reckless”. By ’90, Ice-T was nominated for a Grammy Award for his hit single "New Jack Hustler." Since then, Ice-T’s film and television career has taken off, his controversial personality securing roles in “New Jack City” and “Ricochet”, plus his current flourishing television career in “Law & Order”. Joining him on the decks is Afrika Islam. Known to many as the son of Bambaataa, Afrika – a two time Grammy and Oscar winner, member of the Mr X & Mr Y team with Westbam, who has helped organize the Berlin Love Parade, Afrika is also the man who helped co-produced some of Ice-T’s earliest albums.

In da Mix, followed by Bounce with Andrew Chow
Wednesday 20 July 2005 at Phuture 
An event that brings it back to the raw. The basic governor of the groove - The DJ. In a real club or block party, it was always about the DJ building a groove; combining his skill at mixing with the deft cuts and nasty scratches when the mood called for it. Amateur DJ’s who couldn’t mix two records together would stand around and stare in bewilderment at the maestro as he brought the crowd to their feet with just his skill in the mix. At In Da Mix, 3 contestants will put the needle to the groove in individual half hour sets, to see who can take the crowd from head nodding to bumpin n grindin, in the true spirit of the block party.

Dimitri From Paris
Friday 22 July 2005 at Zouk
The man who made French house chic and fashionable, Dimitri from Paris is back again to grace the Zouk decks. Envied by many as the DJ who has been rubbing shoulders with Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy, Dimitri has since compiled and mixed 2 cds for Playboy, and has rocked the mythical Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills, with attendees ranging from L.A. club-hoppers to celebrities such as Spike Jones and Sofia Coppola. So get set to party with panache as Dimitri drops his wonderfully eclectic mix of funk, with a dash of Brazilian jazz and a generous helping of classic disco.

Juice DJ Quest, followed by Sonny, Weili and Feng, winners of Juice DJ Quest 2003 & 2004 respectively  
Friday 29 July 2005 at Zouk
Since its inception, the JUICE DJ Quest has become one of the most anticipated clubbing events on the Singapore calendar, attracting a thronging congregation of industry leaders and Gen-X alpha consumers, all gathered to see the next generation of Singaporean superstar DJs. Now back for its fourth installment, the JUICE DJ Quest is once again set to blow the lid off on Singapore’s new crop of undiscovered deck masters. Log on to www.juiceonline.com for more information.

Weili was crowned the JUICE DJ Quest Champion in July 2003 with Feng capturing the same title in 2004 as well as placing runner-up in the Heineken Found @ Thirst 2003 & 2005.
 
Individually, Weili and Feng have achieved a string of accolades such as playing alongside Jay J (USA), Max Graham (USA), Brewster B (Australia), Soul of Man (UK), Dub Pistols and 2003 Singapore's DMC Champion DJ Koflow. But together, this pair of champions constantly challenge the boundaries of DJing. Fusing just about everything at hand, their sets literally shred the dance floor to pieces. Cursing breaks with rock, blessing house with funk and praising soul with breakbeats, nothing's sacred for these deviants.

One of America's most highly sought after DJ/producers, DJ Dan continually breaks new musical ground. Beginning as Los Angeles' top techno DJ in the early 90's, he went on to inspire the breakbeat trend a few short years later with the classic anthem "Loose Caboose." Soon after, Dan reinvented the sound with "Needle Damage" - a fusion of all that is hard and funky. His involvement with San Francisco¹s Funky Tekno Tribe was a significant milestone on the establishment of what is known today as the signature West Coast house sound. Sitting firmly at #3 in the American Top 100 DJ poll in BPM Magazine, and #24 in DJ Magazine Top 100 poll, Dan has since remixed the likes of New Order, Green Day and Yoko Ono, and is currently playing a hybrid of funky house and techno.
