This festival would have up to 16,000 people present and boasted headlining artists such as Fatboy Slim, Robert Miles, Kraftwerk, The Orb, Sasha, Kosheen, Public Enemy, etc.
His promotions company Ravebreak was also chosen to host the warehouse Chillzone inside the event that proved to be immensely popular and gained the support of sponsors such as Phillip Morris, Red Bull and Rizzla.
DJ Anand plays an explosive mix of ‘Infectious Funky House Grooves that moves into a glitchy yet Twisted Electro sound with some Slamming Breaks thrown in to keep y’all guessing. The emphasis of his sets usually head towards an uplifting Progressive vibe that just makes you want to jump. As he still plays a wide variety of genres and is always looking for fresh new musical fusions to unleash onto the dance-floor, you can expect to hear some of the freshest tunes

Real name Elaine Shin, TYNEE (“Tiny”) grew up in New York. After returning to Hong Kong to work in Asia, Tynee immersed herself in the more Progressive sounds of the U.K. At the time, the rave scene just commenced there. Since the beginning of her clubbing days, Tynee was very particular about knowing a track’s name, label, mix, and related details. Perhaps that was a sign of things to come. But she was still searching for her true calling. A trip to India spurred a few years of dabbling with fashion design. By the spring of 2004, Tynee gradually dropped everything and went into DJing full-on.
The sounds of Sasha, Dave Seaman and Slacker inspired the direction of music Tynee secured for her own personal listening pleasure around the late 1990s. By 1998, breakbeat started becoming a major sound where Tynee was. The vibe was so astounding at the time. It was around then that she hammered to hear tunes from Meat Katie, Adam Freeland and Rennie Pilgrem. It was a most awesome experience when she got to play Adam Freeland and Meat Katie in Hong Kong! To this day, artists like Momu and Habersham still make her have goose bumps! Off the breakbeat front, DJs and producers such as Booka Shade, M.A.N.D.Y. and Trentemoller are major influences on her sound behind the DJ booth.
Today, Tynee has emerged as one of the toughest and sexiest DJs in Hong Kong. She is one of the resident DJs at Volar, one of Hong Kong’s hottest clubs. It is at Volar that she had many opportunities to play alongside some of the world’s top DJs, who come to play at Volar regularly. Concurrently, she is also a resident DJ of ZUMA from London, and Volar’s other very exclusive club Halo. On top of DJing there, she hosts a club night called AUDIO VIXEN, offering the finest unusual arrangement of audio and visual pleasure. Audio Vixen strives to showcase female DJ talent.
Cities that Tynee toured in:
Barcelona ( Spain), Sevilla ( Spain), Valencia ( Spain), Moscow Russia, Bangkok Thailand, Dongguan, Guangzhou, Guilin, Hainan Island, Huangzhou, Nanning, Shanghai, Shenyang, Shenzhen, Xiamen
DJ Beau Toxx
Music Style: Electro
Part French, part Vietnamese, born and raised in Africa, living in Hong Kong, Thierry Halbroth’s origins have no doubt influenced his chill-out sets with a wide world music selection.
His signature club sound is a highly sophisticated dirty funky electro minimalistic house, consisting of deep Afro-Arabic tribal beats, rocking Brazilian batucada, minimal beats mixed with an unparalleled acidic electro sound that includes bastard pop hits.
Beau Toxx is an Electro/Electro-house DJ very much geared towards fashion parties and launches (as well as intimate chill out moments!) - spinning a unique selection mash-ups, electro remixes and covers. His electro-house revisits hits from the past with a solid rock base and acid house reminiscent of the late 80’s. In 2008, he was invited to play at Bootie San Francisco, home of the world’s biggest mash-up parties.
“DJ Beau Toxx is not of a commercial nature, not conforming to the masses but to a unique elite; those that love music and like to feel it. I am praised on delivering a very exclusive set with an unusual music selection that gets people talking, creating an addictive underground vibe, even in a chilled environment.”
