For these first two events we will be treated to the sounds and visions of DJ Andrew K, the especially gorgeous DJ Keri and VJ Callen.

DJ Keri

Pretty hot eh? (She’s been in Playboy, FHM and Maxim!) Progressive house and breakbeats and live vocals, yes she looks good and sings! I love house DJs that sing too, it’s really uplifting. More DJs should use live vocalists, some of the classic trance songs have the most beautiful vocals. Hope I get some pictures of her…maybe I propose a portrait shoot to her πŸ˜‰

DJ Andrew K

Inspired by Sasha and Digweed (old skool favs back in the UK) Andrew K plays a range of electro laced progressive house and follows a whole range of styles from experimental, down tempo, jazz, punk and rock! Used to be an avid vinyl junky but has moved with the times and is 100% digital now – but then who isn’t. I haven’t seen anyone using vinyl for ages…

VJ Callen (VIDEO)

VJ Callen

Callen is a familiar face in the KL club scene as a pioneer of our local progressive house movement, a DJ-turned-VJ he is well known as one of the best visual magicians in the scene.

So be there or be square!

    eh… why vj, not DJ? got video remix?

    I dunno, but i think our local house/trance/progressive scene needs a bit of beefing up… when will it be when someone can enter velvet with songs from judge jules, paul van dyk, bt, above and beyond, atb or armin van buuren being played properly…

    but then again, i left malaysia 2 years ago, and haven’t entered any local club since. Dunno how is it now… anyone can give me a heads up?

    I am so ANNOYED! I used to love going to Zouk in Singapore and as soon as I left for the UK, one opens in KL! I have not been to the KL one yet but it looks wicked.

    DJ Keri’s upside down fake eyelashers are simply horrifying!!! There is fashion and style, and there is trying too hard and looking stupid…
