John B and Elite Force


Editorial Review

Congratulations to the promoters who decided to pair DJs John B and Elite Force at Muse tonight, because they're going to have a lot to live up to for the rest of the year. This is some bleeding-edge stuff here: John B is the well-known drum'n'bass DJ who dropped vinyl for Goldie's famed Metalheadz label, but he's more recently melded drum 'n' bass rhythms with '80s electro synths to create an ahead-of-the-curve sound known as "electrostep." Also on the bill is Elite Force, whose raw brand of breakbeats is perfect for setting off a room full of dancers. The scene should be intense -- especially at an intimate club like Muse and when it's only $10 to get in before midnight if you RSVP on the District Ignition Web site. (It's $20 at the door otherwise.)
