Hats off to the brilliant organisers Ramesh Krishnan from Meshtrax & Sharmaine Khoo from City Nomads & Super Zero. The experienced pair have been working for ages in the entertainment industry and I got to appreciate how their very different strengths compliment each other so perfectly. They are bringing together different awesome communities and artforms to create a one of a kind experience. Such initiatives go a long way to helping develop the local music scene on so many levels. Can't wait to find out what other events they will organise together in 2016. Join this event titled the Announcement Party over HERE.

Anand (CÉ LA VI Singapore)
Jet set on a rare groove journey transiting through soundscapes of afro disco funk soul latin and always a touch of jazz when Anand takes control of the decks. Currently a resident at CÉ LA VI Singapore, Anand is heavily inspired by the works of Mr Scruff (Ninja Tunes) & William ‘Quantic’ Holland (Tru Thoughts).
DJ Bhayology & Kusto (Tropical Temple)
Tropical Temple is bringing the deep, funky, tribal and soulful rhythms of Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean to Southeast Asia. From their monthly parties at BluJaz Cafe to their pop-up Tropical Explosion events featuring internationally renowned DJs like Miles Cleret (Soundway Records) and Jose Marquez (Tribe Records), Tropical Temple's events are all about bringing raw energy and real culture, identity and rhythm of the global dance floor to Singapore. These humble fellas and their rotating cast of guest selectors have only this goal in mind: Expand your musical horizons and get your body moving!
Live Percussionist Mohamed Noor
I'm a big fan of Mohamed Noor who for me is a massively awesome world musician from Sinapore. He is able to play such a wide variety of music and his band Men In Groove is fabulous. If you have never seen this guy, you must come for this show (or another one of his own shows)!
