Great weekend vibes ahead
TWO weekends of heady clubbing to end this month’s smorgasboard of nightlife activity with the promise of a stream of international stars to boost the scene a little. We bring to you some of the highlights. Have a good night or five out.
BLACK IN SESSION presents GARETH EMERY. They’re flying in thick and fast as Emery makes a quick return to our shores this month from his last appearance here mid last year. Another spectacular rise in the definitive DJ Mag Top 100 Poll, smashing into the Top 10 at No.9, starting a new record label Garuda to go with his productions, it’s gotten even better for Emery in 2009. Call Zouk at 03-2171 1997 for information.

Volume presents Jon O’Bir. Jon O’Bir is a name that’s been splashed across the industry since he catapulted to the front line in 2002 after winning a prestigious competition run by Passion and M8 magazines in Britain. His talent saw him warming up and going head to head with some of the biggest stars including Paul Van Dyk, Sasha and Tiesto, something very few people can add to their portfolio. Admission (with one drink): RM30 (ladies) / RM40 (men).
Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL
Another London club/indie night hits KL with heady promises of stonking lineups. THIS FEELING makes its debut with an extremely interesting headliner — Madchester indie rave legend BEZ of Happy Mondays on the decks for a DJ set. Twilight Actiongirl and Australia’s Common People serve up the appetiser. It’s FREE entry, but get there early for the happy hour drinks offers. Mote to come.
