“Scrumptious bassy goodness from sunny Singapore!”

from 10.30pm – 5am

“Kongkretebass proudly presents the continuation of their RADAR music series this year… When on the 16th of May , Kongkretebass once again roll up equipped with their carefully picked artists and a full sound system, promising nothing but a banging night of quality dnb music!

What started in early 2006 for us with a focus on exposing regional talent in Drum and Bass music to HK ears, continues this May by inviting rising talent from sunny Singapore ! Dj/ Producer KIAT

is one of the head honchos in the South East Asian Drum and Bass scene. KIAT, who is currently celebrating great successes with his tracks releasing on a number of the scene’s most important labels (Metalheadz/ Rufige, Hospital Recordings, Soulr, Function …), has already earned much respect from some of the heavy weights like Goldie, Doc Scott, DJ Marky, Marcus Intalex to name a few.

DUBWISE is Dj/ producer duo Kable and Castro. The two are responsible for the development and promotion of the Dubstep & other bass heavy genres in Singapore, with trademark underground nights such as “Dubwise” and more recently “Mutant Dub”.

We are excited to introduce KIAT & DUBWISE to our Hong Kong scene. Subtropical bass-busting rowdiness – represent!”

ABOUT KIAT:

**K I A T

[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 – Goldie, 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

ABOUT DUBWISE:

**DUBWISE

[Singapore]**

http://www.myspace.com/dubwisesg

Dubwise is Darren “Kable” Dubwise & Guna “Castro” Dubwise.

Based in Singapore, don’t let their name fool you, the duo with more then a combined 18

years of DJing experience under their belt, have more than reggae/dub up their musical

sleeves.

Tastemakers in their own right and heavily influenced by the sounds of labels like Basic

Channel, Hyperdub, Warp and Planet Mu, they are responsible for the development and

promotion of the Dubstep & other bass heavy genres in Singapore, with trademark

rowdy club nights such as “Dubwise” and more recently “Mutant Dub”.

These 2 troublemakers recently taken to the recording studios developing a new live show,

featuring talented fellow Singaporean, MC Masterpiece, with his bag of tricks, you can

definitely expect them to blow minds and speaker boxes with their productions.

You’ll like it when the bass comes in!

On 16th May, Darren “Kable” Dubwise will be representing the Dubwise sound to Hong Kong’s

bass-hungry music lovers.
