Hennessy Artistry at Zouk 2007
There will be a range of Hennessy international city cocktails such as Hennessy Miami, Hennessy Shanghai, Hennessy Moscow and Hennessy Paris – they bring these fantastic drinks together with some of the leading live music artists, DJs and visual specialists from around the world. In the US the events are massive with artists like Pharrel Williams, Kanye West, DJ Carl Cox and Fallout Boy!
Hennessy Shanghai Cocktail
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.
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 😉
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)
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!
