Naughtiest thing you've done this year: 
The naughtiest is probably the one I can't say here. My Mum reads this!

"Since last year's Top 100 results, I've hardly been in Hong Kong," says Ricky Stone, the Sheffield-born DJ who's been making big waves in China since moving there in 2005. "I've been touring for the last 12 months."

In between travelling across America, Asia and Europe, Ricky has set up new label, 852 Recordings, and had releases on labels like Cr2. His DJ talents grace the latest instalment of the 'Bar Grooves' compilation series and he continues to run his fortnightly radio show, Sounds of the Orient.
"I also did a gig for Formula One to 10,000 people on the Great Wall of China last week," he adds.

Back home in Hong-Kong, Ricky's been plastered across the papers.
"The South China Morning Paper has been running a campaign for me for seven weeks," he says. "We've had a lot of votes so I'm interested to know whether I'm higher or lower than last year!"
