Hip Hop, House and Breakbeat combine in this contemporary musical set in the heart of clubland. Read More >

In the heart of clubland, where trippy beats and cool grooves rule the roost, Simone is trying to deal with the problems of life. Her father is rather controlling, her mother has left her and two rival DJs, those masters of the wheels of steel, are vying for her affections.
