KONGKAST#87 – feat. KIAT (Metalheadz, Hospital, 31 Records, Soul:r, Function, Rufige/ Singapore)

YES YES! Kongkretebass KONGKAST #87 is here. And we have got a special treat for you…

This week’s KONGKAST features Singapore champion KIAT with a sneak preview of


our RADAR#4 feat. KIAT and DUBWISE event this Saturday, 16th May 2009, in Hong Kong!


As one of South East Asia’s pioneers of the drum & bass sound, KIAT championed the darker side of electronica with quality breaks, rolling bass-lines and leftfield influences over many years.

KIAT’s tunes are now sought after by the top shelf DJs in the scene – G **oldie, Doc Scott, Marky,

Marcus Intalex, A-sides, S.P.Y, Storm, Amit, Digital, Alleycat, Bailey, Vapour, Gremlinz, London Electricity and Fabio.** The Singaporean has also been featured as “ Leader of the Nu-Skool ” in

recognised international drum & bass magazines KNOWLEDGE and ATM , and his tracks went on air

on BBC’s ‘Essential mix’ on 1XTRA, BBC’s online urban music radio station.

We look forward to rocking out with KIAT this weekend and send our thanks for bringing this special mix to our listeners of KONGKAST – Hong Kong’s podcast for dnb and dubstep.

About KIAT (Metalheadz, Hospital, 31 Records, Soul:r, Function, Rufige/ Singapore)

http://www.myspace.com/singaporekiat

As one of South East Asia’s pioneers of the drum & bass sound, KIAT (Jon Nah) championed

the darker side of electronica with quality breaks, rolling bass-lines and leftfield influences over many

years. With more than 17 years of DJ-ing experience behind him, KIAT extended successfully into

music production. Often intricately programmed with deep grooves hidden behind warm detroit

synths and strung together by dubby bass-lines and crafted hip-hop breaks, it is no wonder that after

opening for Goldie at Homeclub, Singapore, his tunes caught Goldie’s attention and were immediately

courted for release on the Metalheadz’s Rufige .

KIAT’s tunes are now sought after by the top shelf DJs in the scene – G **oldie, Doc Scott, Marky,

Marcus Intalex, A-sides, S.P.Y., Storm , Amit , Digital , Alleycat , Bailey, Vapour, Gremlinz, London Electricty and Fabio.** The Singaporean has also been featured as “ Leader of the Nu-Skool ” in

recognised international drum & bass magazines KNOWLEDGE and ATM , and his tracks went on air

on BBC’s ‘Essential mix’ on 1XTRA, BBC’s online urban music radio station.

KIAT’s recent collaboration with fresh producer S.P.Y. from Brazil titled “Close Encounters” became

a small success in the saturated electronica scene. Furthermore, this tune allowed the duo to expand

their audiences beyond the regular drum and bass enthusiasts. As a nice affirmation, Goldie voted it

as his favourite tune of the summer 2008!

On music production and DJ-ing, he’s always seeking to create a soundscape to be remembered and

definitely never takes the same route twice. Finding inspiration from a new breed of producers such

as Gaslampkiller, Glitch Mob, Flying Lotus as well as some minimal techno for good measure, KIAT’s

DJ sets are expected to be packed with leftfield beats as well as proper dancefloor bangers.

Labels: Kiat’s productions are signed on some of the biggest labels in the biz – Function, Soul:R,

Hospital, Metalheadz/Rufige, Influenza LTD, Vampire, Technoir, Nerve
