ADVANCE WARNING: Speedzone pres. Paul van Dyk (DE) @ Zouk KL (16/10/2009)

The Story Begins...

Need something to warm you before Speedzone Tour in Genting? Sure thing! Paul van Dyk is back and most KL clubbers wouldn't want to miss his gig. He is definitely gonna drop bombs at Zouk!

Ch-ch-check it out!


What?
Speedzone pres. Paul van Dyk (DE)

Where?
Zouk KL

When?
16th October 2009 (Friday)

Who?
Paul van Dyk
(opening set by Terence C)

How?
RM88 (Ladies), RM98 (Men)

BOTTLE ENTRY:
RM489nett / 3 pax
* Table reservations will be confirmed upon payment of bottle purchases

Why?
Paul van Dyk is one of the few DJs that really gets people's hearts racing every time he visits Kuala Lumpur for one of his famed DJ sets.

It's hard to pin down exactly why but Zouk KL absolutely adores him. Back after a 1 year absence, he is part of a massive world tour that has seen him grace some of the world's more prestigious clubs and biggest festivals.

He counts Zouk KL as one of his favourite stops on the world tour and its not hard to see why. His last few times here have been packed with a carnival like environment full of his most ardent admirers branding Vandit (his record label) t-shirts. This will be without a shadow of a doubt one of KL's highlights of the clubbing year. Do not miss the king of the Electronic Dance Music movement as he takes you on a spellbinding journey through some of the best music around.

Watch this video! PvD at Music Discovery Project 2009. My favorite track "Forbidden Fruit" with an orchestra.

ADVANCE WARNING: Speedzone Tour MotoGP 2009 @ Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands (24/10/2009)

The Story Begins...


Another round of Speedzone in Malaysia will definitely bring us the best names of the Dance scene. We had Paul Oakenfold, Judge Jules, Ricky Stone and Nic Fanciulli rocking the stage at the last Speedzone in KL Tower earlier this year. I believe most party-goers wouldn't miss this round too. There will be two hot DJs headlining the event.

Check out the deets below!

When?
24th October 2009 (Saturday)

Who?

How?
Tickets can be purchased at Axcess counter soon
RM33 (presale), RM43 (door)

Why?
I've attend Speedzone parties since 2006 and it never let me down! You name it!
Gabriel & Dresden (2006), Yoji Biomehanika & Marco V (2007), Princess Superstar (2007), Mauro Picotto (2008), Benny Benassi (2008), Judge Jules & Paul Oakenfold (2009) and now, they are bringing back one of the best sets I've heard during my Speedzone experience; Marco V!

Yeah, Marco V played at the sold-out Speedzone Tour in 2007. He dropped awesome tunes such as my favorite classic track "Red Blue Purple" and everyone's favorite "False Light". He did played Alex MORPH's "Life Less Ordinary" and it was fucking A+! Genius, pioneer and a legend. Those are the words that I can describe about him.

The English Dance guru, Eddie Halliwell will make his way to Speedzone Tour MotoGP up in Genting. I see no reason for people not to make their way to this event.

RM33 for pre-sale ticket and you get to see two big names. That is a good deal!

HEAR ME: Where the Wild Things Are (Soundtrack)

The Story Begins...

When I first saw the trailer for "Where the Wild Things Are", I was stunned and really, really fell in love with it. The movie is based from a 48-pages children storybook with around 10 sentences in it.

The movie is produced by Spike Jones and the soundtrack is going to be awesome. Spike Jones former girlfriend, Karen O (who is also the vocal for Yeah Yeah Yeahs), wrote for the movie soundtrack. The trailer itself uses the song from Arcade Fire titled "Wake Up" which did portrays the mood to it.

"All is Love" single cover

Karen O and the Kids teamed up for a song in the soundtrack which has already been released and title is "All is Love". A beautiful song, it is. Check it out below!



"All is Love" is also being featured in an anti-fat advertisement called "Did You Play Today?" by the US Department of Health and Human Service.

The album soundtrack will be released on the September 29 in the US. Queens of the Stone Age, The Raconteurs and Deerhunter will contribute their song for the movie soundtrack also. Make sure you guys will look out for it.


The most anticipated movie, "Where the Wild Things Are", is scheduled to release on the October 16, 2009. Check out the trailer.

The Story Begins...


Tiesto has always been my favorite DJ ever since I was in school and attending his gigs were one of the best party experiences I've ever had.


Tiesto is coming out with his forth studio album titled "Kaleidoscope" which will be in stores by early next month. October 6, to be exact, and I'm looking forward for it.

Why?

Well, the tracklist itself will do the explaination for you!
  1. Kaleidoscope [ft. Jónsi of Sigur Rós]
  2. Escape Me [ft. CC Sheffield of Le Rev]
  3. You Are My Diamond [ft. Kianna of Tilly & The Wall]
  4. I Will Be Here [ft. Sneaky Sound System]
  5. I Am Strong [ft. Priscilla Ahn]
  6. Here on Earth [ft. Cary Brothers]

Why?
John Digweed is not only considered the DJ's DJ but he is also a DJ to the people no more evident than being voted No 9 in DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll (having stayed in the top 10 for the last few years). He is globally revered for being the genius and driving force behind super label and night Bedrock and also for his increasingly popular show Transitions (on Kiss FM and online). Much like his original partner in crime Sasha, John's sound crosses genres as much as it does borders. A 'take-no-prisoners' approach to getting the dancefloor moving has ensure he remains the top of many lists both by industry experts as well as his beloved clubbers. We like John because he has always understood the Zouk KL dance floor taking in the carnival like atmosphere and giving it back via an artfully crafted, sublimely played set directed straight at the hearts and feet of our clubbers.

We take pride in welcoming back to Zouk KL, a true master of the decks and a king of the clubbers hearts - John Digweed.

Adli Syahril says: I guess most clubbers will have their "Raya" celebration in KL! haha
