DJ Wash is DJ/producer/promoter for Kongkretebass. He came from a scene of breaks and DNB in Sydney, Australia, before appearing in the re-kindling Hong Kong drum & bass scene in 2005. His fast moving, highly energetic sets sparkle with a wide spectrum of sounds. Be it rollers, jump-up, tech or liquid style - DJ Wash’s range and diversity are a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
When not behind the decks, DJ Wash dedicates most his time to studio work. His first commercial release appeared in early 2008 under European label
Indies Scope on the album “Brant Rock” by
100°C, a top Czech indie band who had invited DJ Wash to contribute to their album-remix project. Besides producing & promoting local events, DJ Wash also runs Asia’s biggest drum & bass podcast, called
Kongkast. Its regular episodes & guest mixes have been spreading the latest sounds of drum & bass to thousands of listeners around the globe every month, since 2006.
Electronic Mistress is DJ, promoter and co-founder of Kongkretebass. As the energetic driver behind JUNGLE BELLS, she is determined to put local drum & bass lovers’ dance floor stamina to a test with another mash up night of truly wicked sounds beyond 2x the speed of a heartbeat!
Blood Dunza is an original Hong Kong Junglist DJ and producer. He can be seen laying down his signature Ragga-Jungle sets at almost every single DNB gig around town as well as throughout China. Aside from being a resident DJ with the Magnetic Soul crew, Blood Dunza is pioneering exposure of various underground sounds in Hong Kong with his very own vision, and has been doing so under the HEAVY moniker since early 2006. HEAVY is a concept dedicated to the techier, heavier side of drum & bass, dub, reggae, as well as dubstep and offers a platform for newly emerging artists in and around Hong Kong. Big things going forward! Blood Dunza is touring China in November, but will be back just in time reppin the HEAVY sound for JUNGLE BELLS ‘08.
DJ Le Libertin (aka Art Off Man) started music in Paris 1996. From small private parties to outdoor raves across Europe, his experiences from both famous clubs and “underground” parties made him a DJ and producer with a very eclectic selection of electronic music, dedicated to the crowd! His passion for travel and mix of different cultures brought him to HK and China, soon playing for Live Acts and organising the Hong Kong Club Tour in 2006. Le Libertin definitely knows how to make people move on a dance floor!
Apart from Drum & Bass, Le Libertin also plays Electro, Techno, BreakBeat, Tribal and Hard Tekno.
Arkham can be called by many names, but he’s undoubtedly the “longest-standing Junglist in the city” (Hong Kong). He’s best known from his former monthly Red Label night at popular musical establishment Yumla, where he loyally nurtured bass-heavy sounds along with budding DJ Johnathan. We are happy to welcome Arkham back to the JUNGLE BELLS turntables for the third year!
Stef:funn’s strong musical background as a professional drummer for Hong Kong’s most prominent Rock & Pop artists has taken him on travels around Asia, Europe and the US.
Influenced by rock, funk, jazz & reggae, Stef:fun extended his musical horizon by spinning drum & bass records. He has since supported numerous gigs for local crews Heavy, Eclectism and Kongkretebass, as well as Magnetic Soul DJs. At this years’ Jungle Bells drum & bass shakedown he’s once again going to rock it hard & heavy, mosh-pit style!
Synertia has been spinning drum and bass in the US for over 6 years and loves DJing in Hong Kong. He plays a diverse mix of all types of dnb: liquid, dark, and dancefloor. In his past 2 years of living in Hong Kong he has had a great time playing out and looks forward to supporting JUNGLE BELLS 2008 for the second year.
DJ/Producer/MC/Vocalist and promoter in Hong Kong, Kastoacha is a staple in Hong Kong’s underground scene. As a resident DJ at HEAVY he plays a neural tech punk mashup of dnb, dubstep, breaks and electro, with some random classics thrown in. Whilst regularly MCing live at dnb nights as z1bkr, he can be found spitting out all types of subliminal nu-speak rhetoric. Let’s hear it loud!
In just over 2 years of spinning as a resident DJ for Magnetic Soul, Teem has supported numerous of their events in Hong Kong. He plays a crowd-friendly jump-up style but also likes the deep & techy side of dnb. Teem describes his biggest influences as being UK’s heavy-weight artists such as DJ Friction and Zinc. His aim as a DJ in Hong Kong is to lure more people away from the commercial clubs and make them fall for the world of underground sounds which drum & bass is a substantial part of.
