*** [ dub / reggae / HK underground ] *** Hong Kong's Premiere Music Blog *** [ exclusive DJ mixes ] ***
This Friday night 07/12 Germany’s iLLBiLLY HiTEC roll into Hong Kong with MC Longfingah to drop their digital reggaetronics upon XXX. Also on the bill are Blood Dunza, Christian Di Phat Selekta, and yours truly The Groove Thief. I’ll be starting the night off from 10:30 to midnight with funky dub building up to digital reggae. A True Skool x Heavy Hongkong collaboration, this is going to be a fun night of BYOB house-party reggae vibes. Come early, stay late, and drinks are closer now that 7-11s been supplanted as the nearest convenience store…
Check out my review of iLLBiLLY HiTEC from earlier this year, and here’s a new video to get you warmed up:

Secret Archives of the Vatican produce mystical breakbeat electronic music.  With Middle Eastern melodies and nuanced high-tempo drums, this is engaging and unique.  Maybe if Beats Antique were sped up, that would be close, but this has more focus: a honed instrumental force designed to crush unsuspecting dancefloors.  Dubstep is no foe, and other funk, reggae, and drumstep influences creep in on tracks as well.  Here are their latest two albums, available courtesy of Broken Drum Records, for download or stream.  Barbary Lion is a bit more rugged and dubby, the gritty desert journey before Panjandrum’s heavy oasis party.  Cool tunes, awesome band name, this is ‘Transglobal Breakbeat Dub Science’ indeed:

Making sensibly atmospheric dubby-bass electronic music, Objekt is (apparently) quickly making a name for himself, and this FACT mix showcases his style well.  This is glitchy, almost shaky IDM, well-crafted and well-deserving of a listen.
