ZOUK KL picks up steam for the rest of April with some hefty international clubbing activity with special guest DJs flying in from all corners of the world.
April 17, 18 and 23 the dates to add to your clubbing calendars, with more to come later in the month at 113, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.
ZOUK presents ANDREW RAYEL
The Moldovan DJ now fondly known in the EDM industry as the modern day Mozart, and one of today’s leading talents in the ever-growing trance scene, makes a return to our shores.
He is Andrei Rata but clubbers here will know him better as Andrew Rayel.
Still only 22, he studied orchestral music and kicked off his producing career when he was only 13-years-old.
It didn’t take long for the passionate music lover to translate his ideas into sounds.
He created a truly unique, significant sound, one of piano power, harmonic balance and euphoric tales.
It’s no surprise that Rayel, often called the ‘new’ Armin van Buuren, received the support of the Dutch trance maestro himself.
His tracks found a solid home on the A State of Trance and Armind labels, both part of the Armada Music family.
Earning the support of the DJ elite, the Rayel sound has spread all across the globe, from the underground clubs to the mainstream festivals.
He has already DJed the world’s most legendary clubs and massive festivals, from Kazantip, Global Gathering, Trancefusion, Ball En Blanc, Trancemission and Ministry of Sound to multiple A State of Trance 600 and 650 events (including the one at Bukit Jalil in March 2014), the A State of Trance Ibiza nights at Privilege and the world-famous Monday Bar cruise.
The Zouk night will be supported by BATE. Admission (with one drink): RM50 before 11pm / RM65 after 11pm.
HEINEKEN presents ALVARO (Thirst Pre-Party)
Alvaro, also known as Jasper Helderman, has actively been involved in the EDM scene for more than five years.
With releases on Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings, Tiesto’s Music Freedom label and Dutch label Spinnin’ Records and collaborations and remixes with Will.I.Am (Black Eyed Peas), Lil Jon, Pitbull, Diplo, Major Lazer and Far East Movement, the career of Alvaro has only just begun.
Alvaro’s performances have already become legendary; his club shows sell out time and time again.
With performances at major festivals such as Tomorrowland, Creamfields, EDC and Ultra Music Festival, Alvaro is bringing Dutch EDM to a new level.
The Zouk night will be supported by Goldfish + Blink and HypeEmBeats. Admission (with one drink): RM45 before 11pm / RM60 after 11pm.
VELVET UNDERGROUND and 4Play presents HELENA
HELENA has it all: energetic DJ sets, on-point production, and a powerhouse of presence.
Armed with such a deadly combination, the UK-born, Australian-bred and Los Angeles-based Helena has taken the scene head on into unparalleled heights.
Helena dominates with her sound as one of dance music’s most prominent DJs and electronic producers.
Showcasing her depth with electro, progressive and house beats, she stands her ground with finesse.
Proudly hosting a residency at the stunning Las Vegas 5,000 capacity super club Drai’s and having just re-signed for her second year as a 2015 resident, the spotlight is at an all time high after releases on label giants such as Musical Freedom, Ultra Music, Sony, and Mutants Records.
From a young age, her classical skills on the cello and piano amplified into more when teamed with an electronic barrage.
This queen of electronica has rocked festivals all over the world including Tomorrowland, Big Day Out, the Future Music National Tour, the main stages of Ultra Music Festival and Stereosonic as well as touring Asia supporting Alesso to sold out stadium crowds.
Dubbed by DMC World Magazine as “one of the most exciting DJ’s of the moment,” this musical empress is without a doubt leading The Revolution.
Velvet support from Goldfish and DJ Ken. Admission (with one drink): RM18 Ladies / RM28 Men.
