ADVANCE WARNING: Placebo Live in Kuala Lumpur @ KL Live (16/3/2010)

The Story Begins...

Placebo

How?

Why?
Placebo are an alternative rock band formed in London in 1994, and currently consists of Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal and Steve Forrest. To date, they have released six studio albums, six EPs and twenty-seven singles. The band have gained a considerable amount of international recognition, and have sold over one million albums in the UK and over ten million worldwide.

Placebo are best known for hit songs such as "Nancy Boy", "Pure Morning", "Every You Every Me", "Infra-Red", a cover of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill", and "For What It's Worth". Their style has varied greatly. The band's first album featured a raw sound and a fairly minimalistic instrumental lineup, but proceeding albums have had a slower, more melancholy, tone and they started experimenting with synthesisers and other, less traditional, forms of sound production (particularly after Black Market Music).

ADVANCE WARNING: Babyface Live in Kuala Lumpur @ Plenary Hall, KLCC (5/3/2010)

The Story Begins...

Whoah! The R&B mastermind is in town next month! I never thought this man would come here after I saw the Java Jazz line-up. Ticket pricing for Java Jazz is very ridiculous to me. Whatever :p

How?

Why?
A 10-time Grammy award-winning R&B star, Kenny “BABYFACE” Edmonds, will enchant Malaysia for the very first time, making Kuala Lumpur the first stop for his South East Asian tour. The “BABYFACE LIVE IN KUALA LUMPUR” concert will be held on Friday, 5th March 2010, 8:00pm. at the Plenary Hall, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. Playing with a live band and going through his repertoire of classic evergreen songs including “Nobody Knows It But Me” and “Every Time I Close My Eyes", this is a unique opportunity to witness one of R&B's true legend live in action.

As a singer, producer, and songwriter, Babyface was an inescapable presence in virtually every major facet of pop music during the '90s. His own recordings helped rejuvenate the R&B tradition of the smooth, sensitive, urban crooner and made him a staple of urban contemporary radio. In 1996, his guest-laden album, “The Day”, spawned another Top Ten Pop/R&B hit with his single “Every Time I Close My Eyes”, which solidified the singer’s crossover credentials by winning the Grammy for Record of the Year as producer of Eric Clapton's “Change the World”.

He has penned songs for many artistes including the world’s biggest-selling and most universally popular recording artists like Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Lionel Richie, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, En Vogue, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, Boyz II Men, TLC, OutKast and Usher with album sales in excess of over 500 million units worldwide.

“BABYFACE LIVE IN KUALA LUMPUR” is organized by Pineapple Concerts (M) Sdn Bhd and brought to you by ENRICH MALAYSIA AIRLINES.

ADVANCE WARNING: Global pres. Giuseppe Ottaviani @ Zouk KL (12/3/2010)

When?
12th March 2010 (Friday)

Where?
Zouk KL

Who?
Giuseppe Ottaviani
opening set by Terence C

How?
Cover charges applied

Why?
Giuseppe Ottaviani is without a doubt one of the most talented and influential artists on the VANDIT roster. His star first began it´s ascent with live act NU NRG and their album FREE FALL, which garnered worldwide success for this up and coming artist. Now here comes his long awaited debut solo artist album GO!, which shows the different musical faces of one of the most creative producers of electronic music today – Giuseppe Ottaviani.

Giuseppe is a mastermind extraordinaire with a distinctive talent for composition refined by years of academic studies of classical music, and an absolute passion for creating unique and powerful songs. Even as a child, Giuseppe colored his surrounding with his skilled piano playing, but these days he is busy conquering the world of electronic dance music instead.
A sonic panorama of deliciously dark, and absolutely resonant, this album is a definite crowd pleaser with a sound that stretches across the electronic genre, showcasing not only the breadth of Ottaviani´s inspiration, but the depth of his talent at its very best.

Watch this!

Why?
Over 10 boundary-pushing years, Nic Chagall and Bossi have evolved Cosmic Gate into one of the most creative and highly-sought-after electronic music acts in the world. Revered uber-producers, their musical acumen has seen them become long-term favourites of the trance's Big 5 DJs with their 4 hugely-received albums transporting anthems like 'Body of Conflict', ,Not Enough Time', 'I Feel Wonderful', ,F.A.V.', 'Analog Feel', or the classics 'Exploration of Space' and Fire Wire to the dancefloor. As DJs, their kinetic, blood-pumping live performances are seen by hundreds of thousands of club and festival goers annually. Playing a 100 nights every year, it's this ever-visible club presence that saw them reach their highest position to-date on the DJ Mag Top 100, landing as highest climbers at No.19 in 2009.

My favorite Cosmic Gate track, "Body of Conflict"

AFTER PARTY: M.C. Asia Music Factory - "The Creation" @ KL Live (23/01/2010)

The Story Begins...


One purely fun Trance night. That is what I can describe about M.C Asia last month. Great music, great DJs, great vibe and great people coming from all over the globe! Mat salleh and minah salleh (the terms for Caucasians in Malaysia) from France, Australia and wherever joined the Malaysian crowd for the ultimate event.

Event started as early as 4.30pm. Richard Durand shared his music experience pertaining to the production of Electronic Dance Music. Durand discussed on the "Elements of a Great Production". Followed by Sean Tyas, who did a demonstration of his music production and talked on "Production on Logic".

After all the serious talking, the fun began when they skies turned dark. Homeboys Popcorn Perky and Ian Ross served the crowd with good choons to move before the winner of MC Asia's DMC winner Effen took over the decks and dropped his signature beats from Trance to Progressive with a touch of House and Techno. Hats off to them especially Effen for making the party mood.

As soon as Richard Durand got hold of the decks, KL Live was totally packed to the brim... up to the back of the stage controller. Everyone was gasping for breath and rain sweat but nothing could stop them from enjoying Durand's music. The speaker was fucked at the first few minutes but it was all good once it was fixed. Durand dropped numbers of Trance anthems including Corsten's Made of Love, Buuren's In and Out of Love and Tiesto's Lethal Industry that got everyone high into the state of Trance. Thank you for playing my top favorite remix, Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars! xD

Sean Tyas took over as soon as the clock struck at 1am. Tyas brought the whole momentum to a higher level. The beat was highly pumped and the crowd couldn't stop stomping their feet and jump higher whenever the beat built up. His remix of Dash Berlin's Waiting was awesome! I was lost in his music. Great stuff! The sea of people would agree the same; this is the best Trance event to start the year! Richard Durand and Sean Tyas took us on a wild ride! Trust me, everyone partied like it's 2012!

Big ups to Global Sound Masters for throwing us a massive party!

Photo time!
