There will be a couple of appearances from Berlin-based Frankie Flowerz over Friday and Saturday. Penang-born Mohan Das aka Frankie Flowerz has been immersed in the European club scene for the past 17 years. With some two dozen single releases, he’s made quite a name for himself there, particularly in the German club scene.
Under the Frankie Flowerz moniker, he is expected to make one of his regular returns to KL this weekend to play at a couple of clubs in town.
He has releases on record labels such as Funkhaus, Moodmusic, London’s Crosstown Rebels and Hypercolour and on electro producer Tiga’s Turbo records. He has also operated under other production monikers such as Hybrid Funk, AudioRoyal and 2Dawgs and his own name Mohan.
Under the Frankie Flowerz production moniker, he has just released the Sweet Dreamz EP on Hypercolour, the Rain/Stylo EP on Turbo and the digital-only Soulwaves EP on Aromamusic. More releases are in the works.
Mohan Das, as Frankie Flowerz, plays in Kuala Lumpur this Friday and Saturday. On Friday, catch him at Maison (8, Jalan Yap Ah Shak) under Malaysian DJ RaySoo’s Love International banner. On Saturday, he’s at Atrium (Heritage Row, 21, Jalan Doraisamy), Therapy @ The Bar. For both gigs, cover charges apply.
