TONIGHT

ZOUK KL

436, Jalan Tun Razak, KL

ULTRABEAT sees two rooms go mental with Swedish collaboration Galantis in the Main Room with NastyGuru and BATE, and Martin Doorly, Minx and Victor G in Apex.

Mainroom sees the debut KL appearance of Galantis. At its core, Galantisare two friends making music together. The fact that they’re Christian Karlsson, aka Bloodshy, and Linus Eklöw, aka Style of Eye, is what changes the plot. Karlsson should know about shaking things up. As half of production duo Bloodshy& Avant, he reinvented pop divas such as Madonna, Britney Spears and Kylie Minogue in the early 2000s. He co-wrote and produced Spears’ stunning, career-changing single Toxic to the tune of a 2005 Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.

Since then he’s been breaking more ground as one-third of mysterious, jackalope-branded band Miike Snow. As Style of Eye, Eklöw has cut his own path through the wilds of electronic music for the last decade, defying genre and releasing work on a diverse swath of labels including of-the-moment EDM purveyors such as Fool’s Gold, OWSLA and Refune; and underground stalwarts such as Classic, Dirtybird and Pickadoll. He also co-wrote and-produced Icona Pop’s international No. 1 smash Love It. NastyGuru and BATE shore up the local support for the night.

Over at APEX LOUNGE, British DJ/producer Martin Doorly seems to be making Asia pretty much a happy hunting ground this year. Two trips down this region this year already for Doorly and here comes the third (well, second in Malaysia proper), after It’s The Ship, it’s a quick return for him. He will be joined by Minx. Since winning EMI Australia’s inaugural She Can DJ competition and inking a global record deal, Australia’s queen of clubs Minx is dealing out another ace from her deck. Malaysian house, techno stalwart Victor G completes the line up at Apex. For details, call 03-2110 3888 or e-mail info@zoukclub.com.my
