A Dub Adieu: DJ Mael, pioneer of Beijing dubstep, on his farewell gig this Friday

**After three years in the capital, you play your farewell set on April 25. What are you going to miss most about the Beijing?**
I’ll miss how laid back this scene is. Abroad, people can take themselves too seriously ... Also, Beijing is a city where people with a strong will to do things can make anything happen. **So what will we see at the farewell party?**
It’s going to be a mix of all my main influences: drum ’n’ bass, reggae and dub, which are my origins in music. The reggae scene is where I come from. And then there’s dubstep, which is what I’ve been trying to do here in Beijing. You’ll find a lot of the people I’ve been performing with over the years, and Liquid Wicked is playing as well. **Tell us about Liquid Wicked.**
The singer is one of my best friends ... To describe them to someone who hasn’t heard them, I’d say it’s crazy, super futuristic reggae with a dubstep twist. **What’s the most inspiring change you’ve seen in Beijing music in these three years?**
It’d have to be the birth of drum ’n’ bass. When I first visited, drum ’n’ bass only happened once a month ... From there, it became a huge part of the music scene. I helped make that happen with Dan, Blackie, Hayden, Slide and D-Rail from the Syndicate. **So when will we see you back?**
Soon, hopefully. I won’t be gone too long. I promise. **DETAILS**
[DJ Mael and Liquid Wicked at White Rabbit, Saturday, April 25, 11pm, ¥50, Tel: 133-2112-3678](http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/beijing/events/43594/?most_viewed=1)
