BEDROOM KL

6th Floor, Pavilion, 168, Jalan Bukit Bintang, KL

Nobody Listens To Techno presents Static Defunc+ – Bone It EP The Launch Party. Monsoon+ Records invites all to the launch of this EP, featuring some of KL’s best acts such as Romel Johan and Slutski along with featured guest DJ, Clemens Kautz from Berlin and naturally the boys themselves, Static Defunc+.

Bone It started out as an immediate idea from the boys where a complete sound of industrial music was incorporated. It’s raw, it’s distinguished, it’s experimental.

Emerging from the local underground scene where they’ve been actively working as DJs, either alone or together, Malaysian-Singaporean combo Static Defunc+, comprising Artihc + Notion A, aims for nothing less than sharing the sounds of techno for the “now” generation and the next.

Static Defunc+’s music is ultimately about techno meeting other means, moving bodies and souls derived by the sounds of the future. Set to deliver pleasing rhythm through a range of vibes to darker ramped techno cuts via dj sets and productions, it’s all about play and experimentation.

Reservations and admission info call: 03-2141 9620 OR 016-216 6635.
