Join us in celebration of the launch of D/SINI, a brand new visual arts festival at Gillman Barracks that will span nine months and feature a host of programmes, outdoor sculptures and murals by homegrown, regional, and international artists. French-Canadian DJ and cult hero, Jacques Greene, will headline an all-night-long celebration at a party held in a fantastical pineapple-shaped pavilion designed by local fashion collective Mash-Up.
Greene will be joined by a host of other local musicians and DJs. The evening kicks off with a selection of live acts, curated by rapper, singer, songwriter and music producer MEAN. AE$OP CA$H and Unknown Radicals will show off their combined lyrical prowess, followed by acclaimed indie-electronic duo [.gif]. Rounding off the live performances for the night is NADA—whose signature sound deconstructs and reshapes popular Malay songs from the past—before Mean himself takes to the stage. The crew from Darker Than Wax will take us deeper into the night; co-founders FUNK BSTRD and KAYE, as well as William J and Daryl C, complete the line up of stellar artists.
The celebration lasts all the way till the break of dawn, and of course, it’s not a party without some fabulous food and drinks. Camp Kilo Charcoal Club—the laid-back roast meats joint in Kampong Bugis that has fast become a favourite weekend hangout for many—will offer the best off their grills for the day. A variety of other F&B partners, to be announced at a later date, will also fuel the dancing for the night.

'Artifacts' is essentially a night catered to musical diversity and exploration. Inspired by the culture of listening and appreciation in outlets like Brilliant Corners and Spiritland in London, it's about sharing the spectrum of music that would otherwise be rarely heard in a traditional club setting. Seamless mixing is secondary and selection is the key ingredient of the night. Both Ramesh and Funk B have been veterans in the music game, be it dj-ing, promoting and collecting music. But due to their hectic schedules, both have rarely been able to come together in a space to play the music that's close to their hearts and 'Artifacts' aim to do just that.
Early bird - $25
Twin bundle - $40
Regular ticket - $35
*all tickets include 1 drink

Kidkanevil (First Word Records, UK):
Growing up on a unique mix of street music and geek culture, kidkanevil aka Gerard Roberts has developed a distinctive and progressive sound over the years. A keen creative from an early age, his progression into music production was a natural one spurred on by an obsessive interest in hip-hop, anime OSTs and computer game music. Equally at home making Kaiju sized beats as well as delicate electro acoustic soundscapes, the kid has earned the praise and respect of numerous peers and tastemakers.
A Red Bull Music Academy alumni, kidkanevil continues to display an impressive work rate, now with four solo albums to his name plus collaborative project Kidsuke alongside visionary Japanese producer Daisuke Tanabe. He also co-produced the epic Stateless album ‘Matilda’ for Ninja Tune, released an official beat tape tribute to American electronics pioneer Raymond Scott and produced a number of tracks for UK rap giants Foreign Beggars, not to mention an almost non-stop trail of remixes and productions.
NeguimBeats (Darker Than Wax, Brazil):
Neguim is part of the latest contribution to the constant paradigm shifts in the movement of Brazil. A pivotal addition in the current wave of electronic music, he is a master of impeccable arrangement. Shaking off typical expectations of the tropical, South American percussion based samples, he tastefully relives the omnipresent nostalgia of jazz - with blithe stabs of keys and notes resonating with earthy, full-bodied snares. Neguim evokes an innate connection with the listener, fast becoming an anomaly in the relationship between artistes and fans –and a vital connection we thrive on at DTW.
