Not everyone understand a night like this takes months of planning and careful budgeting. Still, I’m glad that it’s moving ahead with much-needed changes to the workflow and a guest line-up that will feature regional guests and possibly a big international act in the upcoming months. Right now, the most challenging task, I guess is to find the sponsors that will bring our plans to fruition. Even though we are nowhere near the scale of Bloc Festival or Mega Club, still there are lessons to be learned from every mistake or failure. Enough of my rant…
This Saturday (21 July), BASSPRESSURE is back with another dosage of Bass / Dubstep / Jungle with the residents and a local-based guest. More details here.
This is also a reminder that I have to get my own production work going and come out with an EP of my own. Wish I could ditch my day job and clock in all the studio hours to get more done!
The design that Trase One did for 1st Anniversary bash went down well. I still have party-goers of that night coming up to me and shared how much they love the idea. Initially, we were exploring the possibility of his design on tees. In the end, we decided having it on party spray cans which were then given out to the people on the floor.
I also did a mixset which was supposed to be for Sonar radio. It was kind of a late submission, so didn’t make it to the broadcast. Hence I put up the hour-long set on Mixcloud for those who dig what I usually play from early to the peak hours of the night at my monthly residency in the club.
Good to have Trase One over to work on the design aesthetics for the upcoming birthday bash of I ♥ DUBSTEP. Just like the music that resonates with the youth, his work represents the kind free spirit lurking within us. To top it off, he was recently featured in the French TV network where he led the camera crew to the streets of Singapore and explained how he worked around the constraints and spaces to put up his work (Video).
This is an extraordinary piece of documentary work that puts our local art agencies to shame. Can they beat the french folks who even come out with an iPhone application, All City Street Art and Graffiti where they gather users to view, tag and share interesting street art in their region?
