Launching into a new vibe for clubbers

DROP KL at the Terraces at TREC, Kuala Lumpur celebrates its grand launch this weekend with Swerve tomorrow bringing a house taste of both Drop KL and the original Drop Hong Kong.

Swerve at Drop KL tomorrow brings you a taste of the original Drop Hong Kong with Drop Hong Kong residents and friends Ivan Sit and Abel Rogers hitting our shores for a special night of house music, alongside our own Da Funkie Junkie.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Sit has been a DJ since 1996 in his hometown, holding residencies in the clubs KEE Club, Drop and Landmark Mandarin Hotel – Mo Bar.

His wide variety of styles ranges from deep house, nu-disco, club jazz, broken beat, electronica, deep funk, Motown soul, 1970s disco, 1980s grooves, Cuban Latino Brazilian Afro beats, northern soul, rare grooves to old school electro boogie qualifying him to be highly knowledgeable and well-cultured as a DJ.

He cites Gilles Peterson, Francois K, Louie Vega, Kenny Dope, Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer, DJ Harvey, David Mancuso, Norman Jay, Joey Negro and Dimitri From Paris as his favourite DJs/producers and has had the good fortune to have supported Norman Jay, Louie Vega, Greg Wilson, joey Negro, John Morales and DFP in the past.

Abel Rogers is a virtuose of the turntables, first stepping up to the decks in 1998, while also finding the time to work for the last eight years with the legendary brand Technics (makers of the iconic SL1200 series turntables).

Fascinated by African-American soul music, Abel advocates music which is particular in its genre and could be considered underground. It is a mix of deep house and soulful with hints of disco and funk.
