AFTER PARTY: Hed Kandi pres. Chris B and Lady Victoria @ Euphoria by Ministry of Sound (28/3/2009)

The Story Begins...

Euphoria once again blow us all with another series of kick-ass party, Hed Kandi. Chris B got hold of the deck alongside with Lady Victoria on Sax (who were here for the first Hed Kandi).

The venue was a bit dull at the beginning of the set but the crowd began to fill the dance floor after the clock ticked at 1am with the high noted track "Destination Calabria" by Alex Gaudino. Lady Victoria played her sax simultaneously with the song beat and made the crowd went bananas. Who doesn't love the track?

... and they gave us full blast from there without letting us walk away from the dance floor as Chris B played lots of everyone's favorite house track from the 90's till present.

The cover charge was very pricey. House lovers will need to fork out RM70 from their wallet to attend Hed Kandi event.

I think Euphoria should bring in any Top 100 DJ. A very big venue should bring big DJ names in the scene.

ADVANCE WARNING: Knight Castle 09 @ Bukit Tinggi, Berjaya Hills (25/4/09)

The Story Begins...

This is another event that you should mark in your party calender; Knight Castle 09 on April 25th 2009

Wanna know why?


Crazy stuff. I've seen him played and he is in my top list favorite DJ. In 2006, SvD was debuted at the #32 spot in DJ Mag Top 100 DJ list. Now, he is sitting at the #13.

Who can't forget his remix of Arctic Monkeys "When the Sun Goes Down"? A very classic, yet top notch remix of Wamdue Project's "King of My Castle" that got me singing. The highly notable remix of "Control Freak" by Armin van Buuren is also my favorite remix of him.

Last year, he came out with his debut album titled "Supernaturalistic" comprising some of his signature track such as Grasshopper, Riff and By Any Demand. The Bass was his debut single from the album and he was also featured by Tiesto in his radio show "ClubLife" for a special session. I hope he'll bring more energy in his set at Knight Castle 09 party.

Besides him, the infamous Woody van Eyden also will be playing at the Knight Castle 09. Not familiar with the name?

Well, this is his first time in Malaysia and he has been playing in front of thousands and His studio ability has made him a very demanded remixer/producer over the years, remixing/producing for artists like Armin van Buuren, Alex M.O.R.P.H, Talla 2XLC, Andy Moor, Duderstadt and more under labels such as Fenology Records, Vandit, Armada, Ministry of Sound, Kontor, Ultra US or ATCR (to name a few).

Recently, he entered the Top 100 DJ list by DJ Mag together with Alex M.O.R.P.H.

Tracks that you should listen from him are Turn It On, Heavenly and of course, everyone's favorite Walk the Edge.

I really want to see him play with Alex M.O.R.P.H on one stage. *take note, organizers! hehehe*

Famous names such as Scott Alert, DJ Shary and DJ Nikki are in the bill too. Nobody wants to miss Hard Kandy DJ in an outdoor event, right?

So people, here's your chance to see great international DJs playing in one event alongside with our homegrown DJs up in the hill!

Details are as stated below.

With various accolades stripped under his belt, including the “Best Breakthrough Artist” at the IDMA’s at WMC 2009, guest appeared on Tiesto’s “In Search of Sunrise Tour”, and headlined sets at Cream, one can safely wish for Sander to swoon everyone off their feet at Knight Castle 09 as our Dutch tech-trance-meister saddles on his rider. As a prelude, you may visit Sander’s online abode where you can watch his whole discography.

The highly acclaimed Dutch Superstar DJ-Producer Woody van Eyden who have remixed and produced for artists like Armin van Buuren, Alex M.O.R.P.H, Talla 2XLC, Andy Moor, Duderstadt and many more, will also be firing up the breezy night with infectious beats to get all feet galloping into the state of festive reverie.

AFTER PARTY: Sunburst KL Music Festival @ Kiara Equestrian Park (21/3/2009)

The Story Begins...

Holy shit mother of god! I'm gonna say this year's Sunburst is better and the performers are totally badass!

What a trip I had for the day! I went to Melaka in the morning and drove straight to Kiara on the same day. Crazy fuck.

We got there around 5pm and parking was a big hassle for us as we had to make a u-turn to park on the other side of the highway. Believe me. There is no such thing as proper parking space for any concert in Kiara Equestrian Park. Everyone have to park at the roadside. :P

I bumped into Fuzz and Dhaima outside the venue. They sold their tickets because they want to attend the Epic Tribe party at CapSquare. Oh man, cannot party with you guys at the Sunburst. :(

I was very surprised to see thousands of people have already spreading around the stages as early as 5pm. The main stages (Sky & Sun stage), the Tuborg stage and also the Livesound stage were also filled with crowd already. Not to forget, the Silent Disco arena was totally rocking. We had to line up for quite a long time to get the headphone though.

The Silent Disco arena was already packed with people before 6pm!

What else?

We managed to see the Otherside Orchestra (one of my favorite local act) but only at their very last song. Oh man, what a heartbreak! Later, we found that Cosmic Kitchen played good tunes at the main stage. The vocalist wore a Kebaya and Batik, and performing a set of jazzy, funk and reggae-ish music. We were totally enjoying and dancing with their music. I don't mind to pay a hundred bucks to catch their show if they are doing a one-band tour here.

The Otherside Orchestra rocking the Livesounds stage.

Cosmic Kitchen playing good tunes of Jazz, Reggae and Funk.

Estranged performed on the next stage after Cosmic Kitchen ended their set. Surprisingly, Estranged have improved a lot in their stage performance. From my on point of view, their showmanship have become better but I didn't bother to go near to the stage because....


The crowd at Estranged performance

Right after Estranged done singing Velocity (or was it Yang Pernah?), NIDJI came up on to the stage. The vocalist, Giring, picked up the drumstick and hit the drum with full energy to live up the crowd. "APA KHABAR SUNBURST 2009?" He screamed and made the whole crowd go bananas!

Giring of Nidji performing on stage

It was so beautiful when they did "Sudah" whereby everyone sang together and the whole environment sound so peace and harmony. One word, BEAUTIFUL!

You can see the ocean of people waving hands and dancing while singing along to "Laskar Pelangi", a song dedicated to the kids of gaza and all unfortunate people. Believe me, it was beautiful. I think I can cry watching their show but I hold it. I guess the songs are very personal to me. I was too crazy for them even I couldn't stop myself from singing till the end of their performance.

The band (Nidji)

We went to the Tuborg stage after it ended and I was totally blew away by Arabyrd's (Arafah) performance. It was so good and made everyone wanted to dance with her!

She brought in the marching band and caused major chaos in the arena! WOOOOHHHOOOO! We loved it a lot! She did her freestyle rap along with the DJ and climb up the stage barrier and the lightings stand. Whoah! She is one hell of a performer.

Arafah with the DJ and the band

The same energy brought by Agrikulture on the main stage but unfortunately, many were standing at the otherside of the stage to catch N.E.R.D's show. Yeah, Agrikulture was fucking crazy playing "Gosip" and "Disko Di Rumah". My cup of tea. Something like Shitdisco-ish in Indonesian style. Brilliant! At the half of their show, Fandy (the vocalist) took off his pants and performed with his boxer all the way.

Fandy of Agrikulture

After the crazy performance and jumping like monkeys, N.E.R.D. came on stage and made the crowd went full throttle!

As said by Pharrell, "I wanna see all Malaysian people moshpits on all over the crowd tonight!"

NERD live on stage

OWH MY GAWD! You've made all the girls sitting on top of their boyfriends, more than 6 crowd surfings at a time and moshpits in a hip-hop show! Now that is a revolution in a hip-hop history.

"All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom!"

Pharrell picked some boys in the crowd to join N.E.R.D rocking the stage during "Rockstar" and "Popcorn", and plenty dozens of hot-damn girlz shaking that booty for "Everybody Nose" and "She Wants To Move" to close their performance. I bet everybody else envied them for standing behind the group. The show was halted quite a few times due to a crowd fight. I heard something like a photographer pushed the crowd so that he can go in front. Pharrell gave him a bit of cruel advise. Whoah. I believe he (the photographer) will hate them for the rest of his live. Hahah!

After the show end, everyone rushed to the KoRn's stage. The show was delayed for a few minutes and KoRn came up on stage kicked it off with "Right Now" followed by "ADIDAS". Everyone screamed the words, "ALL DAY I DREAM ABOUT SEX" when Jon Davis pointed the mic to the crowd.


Jon Davis wore his black sleeveless shirt, black skirt and black socks with his black shoes picked his bagpipe at the back and played it to the crowd before he continued to the next song. I thought he was about to played "Shoots & Ladders" but he didn't. :(

Jon Davis playing the bagpipe

KoRn dropped most of their classic tracks such as Freak on a Leash, Falling Away From Me and Faggots. Some present tracks like Did My Time and Coming Undone were played too. Encore tracks were Blind, Somebody Someone and Got The Life.

Wow. Their performance were absolutely rocking the shit out of me. Everyone went wild as soon as the encore song, Blind, started and I couldn't stop from headbang and sing along.

Trust me. I believe everyone couldn't stop from talking about KoRn & N.E.R.D's performance.

This is what KoRn had said in KoRn Underground website:
"I've been wanting to play KL or Singapore for the longest time, man. And it's going to be a special show in KL because we've taken the longest break ever in our entire career and we haven't played live in the last 10 months, so it's going to be really special."

Malaysians, we are very lucky to have them!

Jon Davis waved goodbye

Kudos to Pineapple for throwing us such great event. We believe in you. In my opinion, this year's Sunburst has a better production set up compared to last year.

Now please fulfill our wish to see Rihanna in action!

The concert show series will feature live guest performances, spectacular show elements including an unprecedented visual experience, headlined by none other than Dutch Superstar Ferry Corsten. TIABM: The Experience promises to be an all‐nighter that should not and will not be missed by any dance music lover. "I am very excited to tour the world with this concept. This is the first time I will be able to put my own production and vision into one massive show. It's going to be an unbelievable night", says Ferry Corsten.

TIABM is the third artist album under his own name Ferry Corsten and was released last November via his own label Flashover Recordings. Hits from this album include dance floor destroyer "Radio Crash" and "Made Of Love" (featuring Betsie Larkin) which is currently burning up the charts. Since its release, it has already been one of the most highly‐acclaimed dance albums of this year by many critics and fans.

"The uplifting energetic, and captivating album once again reinstates Ferry's status as an architect, pioneer, and instigator of trance music" (Mixmag, February 2009)
"Reaching the heights of his seminal debut, this album heralds the return of the king. Trance is in safe hands. In Ferry We Trust" (Inthemix.com.au, January 2009)

"Ferry Corsten presents: TIABM: The Experience" will tour worldwide throughout 2009‐2010.

Hey guys.

I've just found a video posted by an EDM blogger and also a friend of mine, Mr. CoolerFuzz recorded at the recent Adidas House Party. Gosh. I realized that I look stupid on the dance floor.

Frankly, I could not stop myself from jumping and pumping my fist up whenever any Crookers track was played.

AFTER PARTY: Chivas live with Chivalry pres. Seb Fontaine @ Euphoria (6/3/2009)

The Story Begins...

A week ago, Chivas threw us a party at Euphoria with free flows of its signature drink and numbers of DJ with a diversity of Electronic Dance Music.

The event kicked off at 10pm showcasing a music experimental with DJ Blink. The music integration was pretty awesome by combining electronic dance music with the guitar riffs, violins and percussions followed by the capoeira demonstration in Didjital's hard-trance tunes. Kinda cool to see the movements together in a music.

Of course, the finest tech-house DJ from UK, Seb Fontaine was down to rock the crowd after resident DJ, Victor G warmed up the floor.

Many people were there but it didn't packed up Euphoria. Spacious for me to dance but the environment was kinda gloomy. :(

Owh, the podium dancers were great!

AFTER PARTY: Jason Mraz Live in Kuala Lumpur @ Stadium Negara (4/3/2009)

The Story Begins...

Sorry for the late post. I know this is kinda old already but who cares!?

Jason Mraz was down in KL last week for one fantastic show that made everyone rubbing to those who missed it.

People waited at the entrance as early as 6pm. You think you can stand at the front row? Not a chance! People from The Pitt section had a better luck!

Surprisingly, Muse had a 7,000 crowd and Jason Mraz pulled 9,000 people in the same venue! Can you imagine how packed it was? Plus, NO AIR-COND!

Despite the heat and the packed crowd, Mraz did gave us one hell of a good show. The beautiful sounds of guitar riffing, percussion beats, and of course, the voice of an angel from mister Mraz himself.

The saxophonist and the trumpet players wore the Malaysian football team jersey. Hope they don't know how the team is... hehehe

We love the scatting and the "say-hoooo..." thingy during his show.

If Jason Mraz hearts KL, the 9,000 people who witness his show hearts him!

His last word was:
"this definitely not the last time in kl"

Wow?! Jason, you are always welcome to come here! :D *HIGH FIVE!*

The setlist:

  • Make It Mine
  • Remedy
  • You And I Both (medley)
