The second round of Hennessy Artistry of 2010!!!


In May, there will be TWO Hennessy Artistry Party!!! One for people up north! And one for the central region people... Yupp and as always in Penang, the venue will be at QEII, Penang on May 27 and in KL will be at Zouk KL on May 29

The newly revamped Hennessy Mixing Zone is also set to return to allow fans to once again experience the Hennessy Digital Light Art FX booth, Hennessy Mix Master, and Hennessy Mixing Bar. But the highlight of it all, party goers will also again, be able to look forward to the delectable tastes of some of Hennessy VSOP’s signature long drinks – Hennessy Apple, Hennessy Ginger, Hennessy Berry and Hennessy Citrus.

And i still like ginger and citrus better!

So, who is going to perform at both places in the Hennessy Artistry Event?

Summer Daniels and DJ Tempo

Summer Daniels and DJ Tempo are actually two of four members from the electro house hip-hop quartet, a band name: Speaker Junkies. As a band, Speaker Junkies has opened for various acts such as LMFAO, Far East Movement, Sublime, Boomkat, and 2 Live Crew.

Having been heavily influenced by the entertainment scene from a very young age, 25 year-old Summer Daniels is not only a singer but also a model and actress. She recently transitioned from the studio and screen to take her rightful place on stage, microphone in hand, as the sexy front-woman of the band.

Partnering her on stage is fellow Speaker Junkies member and multi-talented Devon Duy Nguyen aka DJ Tempo. The singer, song writer, actor, producer, DJ, music composer and film composer was born in Minnesota and raised in Minneapolis, St. Paul. He has appeared in various major festivals and has played alongside renowned artistes such as Donald Gluade, Thomas Gold, Crystal Method, Felguk, Christopher Lawrence, and LA Riots.

Based in the US, Speaker Junkies has unleashed a new world of electronic music. Blending trance, house, break-beats, and electro into each single, their fresh new vibe is flawless and made especially for the electronic music lover.

Half of the band descends onto Hennessy Artistry with lead vocalist Summer Daniels and DJ Tempo, prepped and ready to unleash their infectious spine tingling tracks.

Joe Flizzow & Sona One

No stranger to the Malaysia music scene, Do you know that Joe Flizzow is actually one half of the internationally renowned Malaysian hip-hop duo, Too Phat?? As Too Phat, he released multi-platinum albums, sold over half a million records and even achieved international recognitions from MTV Asia and Channel V – incredible feats for a local artiste. He has also collaborated with various pop acts from Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada and the United States. Among some of his standout credentials include performances for Linkin Park, the Black Eyed Peas, and Kanye Westhead-honco.

Now Joe Flizzow teams up with protégé Sona One for a ‘throw-your-hands-up-in-the-air’ hip-hop revolution. Promising an explosive, uncut rhyme style added with body-grooving vibes this performance is guaranteed to be something hip-hopper can salivate over.

Sona One’s repertoire is already an impressive list of artistic ventures on canvasses, walls and on stage holding a microphone. With the co-sign and backing of a regional hip-hop icon (Joe Flizzow), Sona One is well on his way to becoming one of Malaysia’s biggest superstars in the near future and he is only 21 years old!! Sona One officially signed with Kartel Records in August 2009. His debut album is expected to be released on the record label in 2010.

Ad Bangers

A combo of two top Malaysian DJ’s make their way into Hennessy Artistry in the second installment. Truly a force to be reckoned with, Ad Bangers is a duo that will bring the house down with attitude! The even fashionable DJ Blink teams up with Didjital (both of Lap Sap) for an idiosyncratic night of electro, hip-hop, house and a few mambo numbers that is sure the pump of the dance floor.

Blink, the hyperactive DJ, producer, promoter and designer, is constantly gorging on information, filing his head with as many bytes as possible. It’s a sound that’s reflected in the infectious upbeat mix of everything and anything that his wildly diverse sets have become unknown for.

Didjital brings to the table his unique style, and takes it on to another level with his versatile selection of music genres; ranging from bassline, fidget and hard electro house whilst mixing it up with his rhythmic scratching and tricks. He is constantly in tune with his crowd, firing spirits up to thrilling new heights.

Their aim: to connect people from the same industry, and integrating creative individuals from all walks of life into a quintessential world of turntablism, featuring a music mash-up ranging from House to HipHop to Mambo.

With more than just music reverberating through the club’s walls, Hennessy Artistry ‘The Global Art of Mixing’ is where music and cocktails find the perfect match. The blending of musical experiences provides the core essence, while Hennessy VSOP long drinks provide the evening’s inimitable spirit to complete the distinct ultimate clubbing experience.

Before i forget, here are some pictures i took frrom the first installment of Hennessy Artistry 2010 which happened on end of march in The Opera, KL...

Beginning of the night...

At the press conference..

See, benefits of being a blogger... i get to be this close to the artistes... this was taken during press conference before the whole event start...

This was taken when it was quite early... 10 plus pm i think... With mini acrobat show n all...

Then later on, there were too many people.. so they had to open that acrobat section to fill in more people... See the amount of people... So, pictures dont lie... Hennesst Artistry is indeed one of the most wanted, must have invitation to get into kind of party...

I had fun on my last Hennessy Artistry event... I get to see the awesome Shawn Lee performed and i get my phone back too... I even did a mini show for the public there to see how i got my phone back (pls note: it was embarassing n i didnt want to create a scene.. but i was kinda forced to)... It was indeed a very memorable event that i will remember for a very long time... I will remember her for a very long time..

I just thought about it... My friendship started with her (as in both of us started getting really close) during a Hennessy Artistry event 2 years ago... and now my friendship with her ended in a Hennessy Artitry event... How cliche...
