Event Layout:

To those who are still holding on to their tickets, congratulations! Now we are on the right track! no more unclear picture of Sunburst 2009!

According to KLue's website, Coldplay will not be coming. Razman Razali, Managing Director of Pineapple Concerts explained that if they had booked Coldplay, they would be the only international act playing the show (eg they were too expensive). He goes on to say that while that may suit some festival-goers, that wasn't want he wanted for Sunburst. He wanted a festival that could cover most genres.

BLOG THING: Puteri Gunung Ledang Season 3

The Story Begins...

Last night was the gala premier of Puteri Gunung Ledang 3 and I got excited when a friend of mine invited me to go with him.

I did went for the previous season.

What can I say?

This season's production is bigger and better. I could not believe my eyes when I watched it. It's like a magical performance on stage.

They brought in the ship! That part looks better compared to the previous season. I love the "7 Syarat" part. The music, the scene and the act = Awesome.

Ida Mariana (as Bayan) and Tiara Jaquelina (as Gusti Puteri) in the first act.

My favorite Bayan (Ida Mariana) did a very splendid performance. I was wow-ed by her voice and her acting.

The ghost (nenek kebayan) of Gunung Ledang (This image looks like the one from Season 2)

The nenek kebayan part was really really good. It's been my favorite scene since the last season. Kudos to the production for improving the scene and I'm still loving it.

Anyway, Puteri Gunung Ledang 3 is a MUST-SEE performance of 2009. It is great. You'll see the magic!

The Story Begins...


Alex M.O.R.P.H. Purple Audio World Tour

3 Bottles @ RM688 before 11:30pm

Choice of Dewar's 12 Whiskey, 42Below Vodka, Bombay Sapphire Gin & Bacardi bottles.

With gigs all over the globe and an impressive array of highly respected productions, Alex M.O.R.P.H. is one of today’s most wanted producers/remixers in the uplifting trance genre.

He made over 80 Remixes for fellow artists and released more than 30 own productions as well as big collaborations, which all found their way into the record boxes of the worlds top DJs, like Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren or Above & Beyond, to name a few.

He always tries to show his versatility in multiple aspects, including a well-known radio show HeavensGate and a stunning solo artist debut album coming soon. Bringing the most upfront trance music imaginable in his sets, Alex M.O.R.P.H. is able to make a crowd go wild any time. He also teams up with Woody van Eyden to perform legendary Back2Back sets the people don’t forget too soon – if ever...

Even the world’s most credible magazine for dance music (M8 Mag) supported them with a covermounted Christmas CD in December 2006, mixed by Alex & Woody. Furthermore, their weekly radio show HeavensGate is broadcasted on a world wide network of radio stations, such as Sunshine Live, BFBS + DAB UK Radio/Sky Digital or Kiss FM Ukraine.

In 2008 his growing popularity becomes obvious by climbing up the DJ Mag list ( top 100 with his b2b partner Woody) , more then 75 festival + clubgigs like Mayday Germany + Poland, Cream Ibiza, Gatecrasher, Colours , Godskitchen , Loveparade etc etc. Productions with Paul van Dyk (“Get Back”, ”In Circles”) and Woody van Eyden (“I Love Trance”) and remixes for high profile DJs/producers like the Armin van Buuren (“going wrong”) proof that Alex M.O.R.P.H. won’t have much time to rest in 2009 either.

Alex M.O.R.P.H.’s highly anticipated debut artist album will feature 13 tracks with more than 7 attached remix EPs, exclusive digital bonus tracks, interactive specials and a promotional world tour throughout 2009! PURPLE AUDIO is an advanced, credible, sexy and global product. It reflects the extroverted nightlife of international clubs, the splendid vibe of an Ibiza summer holiday and the ageless love to music and technology of our target group. The art design for Alex M.O.R.P.H.’s debut album PURPLE AUDIO will see a continuous concept from CD artwork branding to website layout, tour artwork look and merchandise design.

With more than a decade in dance, Alex M.O.R.P.H. is known as one of the busiest touring and producing artists around the Trance globe. Exceptional for an artist with his background, success and award blessing: his first solo album took more than 10 years to see the light of day and clubs! His high standards and expectations on himself and the perfect album made Alex’ production time of PURPLE AUDIO longer than the general producer – but with a non-the-less outstanding result!

The Story Begins...

Earlier today, I clicked through a friend's profile. I flipped through her photos and I found a photo of concert tickets.

I don't mind if people put their concert tickets over the Internet. It's not a big deal to me. Anyone can buy it.

But what disturbed me was a comment by this one fellow:

org free passes lahh weihhh"

Three words for you, YOU ARE PATHETIC!

I do get free passes once in a while but please, don't brag to people especially to your friends who cannot manage to get free pass.

If you still want to tell the whole world, go ahead... but try and read the comment once again...

It is like.. "You bought tickets? How pathetic!? hahahaha I got free passes la weh!"

I believe u are the pathetic one.


p/s: Just my two cent.
