ARTIFACTS SEASON 2!

ARTIFACTS.jpg

ARTIFACTS X DRAGON CHAMBER

------

Mesmé(Misfit, LA) / Special guest selector

FUNK BAST*RD (DTW, SG)

------

RSVP to enjoy free entry before 12MN

12MN after - 1st drink charge of $20 applies

RSVP : darkerthanwax.com/artifacts

F&B Menu : https://bit.ly/2YuJV8q

Yes folks! Thanks for your keen interest on this night - you are the first 50 to be invited to a new season of ARTIFACTS! If you have been to some of these nights at Intermission bar, there were so many wonderful highlights and new friendships being forged. Not to mention it was one of the core experiences in the city for anyone on a friday night who wanted something that offers an alternative way of expression. So it's with great pleasure that we kick off season 2 at a brand new spot called the Dragon Chamber, a speakeasy modern chinese restaurant / bar with a tucked away entrance off Circular Quay. We can't wait to welcome you to our new home, and share another new experience once again.

We have also prepared a great drinks and bites menu to pair with this night, but that's not all - A very special guest selector by way of LA will be joining us on the night :

Since making the move from the Midwest to LA (via Singapore) back in 2016, Mesmé has quickly become one of Los Angeles' most beloved young DJs within a relatively short amount of time, largely due to her unique, vinyl-heavy sets incorporating elements of hypnotic house, moody electro, thumping breaks, and ambient techno. After making waves with her signature night, Misfit (a soon-to-be record label), she was awarded as an "Emerging Artist To Watch" by DJ Mag in January 2019. Aside from her rising career as a DJ, Mesmé is also affiliated with the leading LA underground platform, Restless Nites , where she serves as Lead Curator, regularly on the look-out for essential and inspiring nightlife in Los Angeles. She's appeared on NTS Radio, Dublab, and most recently on Rinse FM as a special guest on Mall Grab 's fortnightly show. Her debut EP, the culmination of her work over the last few years, is set to be released in late 2019 on Mall Grab's label, Steel City Dance Discs .

It is an ambrosial blend of melodic elucidations in a natural way.   In true Afrodisia tradition we invited another seasoned veteran of the local DJ scene for our 5th Edition and are massively pleased to announce  William J  of  Darker Than Wax  will be our featured guest DJ at  #Afrodisia05 .   Introduced to sound system culture and pirate radio while living in the UK in 2008, an obsession with early Dubstep and Grime pushed  William J  to get involved in underground music.  After quietly building his tastes and skills for years, William J’s hybrid sound blends together a diverse range of styles, including house, garage, disco, boogie, beat, afro and everything in between.  His forward-thinking selection, versatility, and diverse knowledge of dance music history brings a fresh sound to the vibrant underground dance music scene in Singapore. After joining homegrown collective and label  Darker Than Wax  in 2012 and moving back to Singapore in 2013,  William J  has been a mainstay in the local scene with residencies and supporting sets for a number of international guests, as well as gracing the decks across the region in Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul, Jakarta, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, and Bali.  https://soundcloud.com/william-j   https://www.mixcloud.com/Williamj/   http://www.darkerthanwax.com/william-j    Afrodisia.sg Collective:   DJ Rushmo  &  Jasmyn  (South Africa)    https://www.mixcloud.com/djrushmo/   DJ Sadat  (Singapore)  https://www.mixcloud.com/DjSadat_Wah/   Music starts at 10:30 pm!

The Council presents Kornél Kovács (Studio Barnhus)

Swedish left-field house producer, DJ and label boss  Kornél Kovács  will be returning to our sunny shores to shimmy up the dance floor at  TUFF CLUB  with his bright and buoyant selections.   The in-demand selector started his career off by knocking on as many of Stockholm's musical doors as possible, digging through record stores and the local library’s dance music records. He managed to score a few DJ gigs on the back of an intense early teenage love of mid-90’s Drum & Bass.   In the mid-00’s,  Kornél Kovács  saw a shift in his music direction, after having secured a residency at Stockholm’s legendary Paradise night, as well as an important stint at  Red Bull Music Academy ;  Kornél Kovács  and his friends Petter Nordkvist and Axel Boman founded  Studio Barnhus , and he has since been forging a reputation as one of the label’s most idiosyncratic talents.  The collective's successes have drawn reams of prestigious press coverage in the years since and worldwide DJ dates for its three members, with  Kornél Kovács  conquering the stages across Dekmantel Festival, The Warehouse Project, as well as playing at clubs across the world.   Join us back on the dance floor as  Kornél Kovács  dishes out his unique house variations for a fresh and funky danceathon.  ––  Fitness Instructors on Duty:   Kornél Kovács  ( Studio Barnhus )  https://soundcloud.com/kornel     Daryl Knows   https://soundcloud.com/darylknows   ––  Cover charge applies. $25 all night.  ▶ No ID, no entry. ▶ No camera flash. ▶ Please respect the vibe.

Purpleism by Fat Fish

"When you’re dancing with any shade of Purple energy, you must know that you are dealing with the energy of your own spiritual awakening! This color energy will bring passionate feelings to the fore. It will also awaken the magic in your life. It has a variety of effects on your body, heart, mind, and spirit. This color energy is about being deeply influenced by inner knowing. It’s about being someone dynamic who will assert their morality to promote and teach respect for all life. When you have a Purple Color Energy, it means that you are guided by your mind’s eye and you are led by your heart. This color works primarily from the third eye. It’s highly intuitive and can impart a wide range of arcane knowledge!"..

DARKER THAN WAX
feat. Marco Weibel & RAH
COVER | free entry before midnight, $20 after midnight

MARCO WEIBEL
Brought up on a diet of soul, early chicago/detroit house, jazz and rare grooves, DJ / selector Marco, dabbles in all things deep, spiritual, raw and honest. Originally from Singapore, Marco is one of the brightest selectors to have emerged out of the burgeoning South-East Asian scene. His move to New York has only furthered his musical reach, and his eclectic sound palette spans across a wide range of sounds from Beats, Dancefloor Jazz, Boogie, Afro/Brazilian, Hip-Hop, House/Techno, Footwork, Dub, Soundsystem Culture and beyond, depending on the setting. Known for his tight mixtapes and guest sets on platforms such as Worldwide FM, Block.fm (Tokyo), Rinse FM and Live For The Funk, this talented cat has shared dance-floors with established tastemakers such as Francois K, Quantic, Yaeji, Scratcha DVA, Photay, Kyle Hall, Inga Copeland, Iman Omari, Howie Lee to name a few.

Steadily making his rounds, Marco has played in numerous cities such as London, Barcelona, Brussels, Hamburg, Tokyo, Toronto, Montreal, Sao Paulo, Rio, Jakarta, Bali and holds various residencies in New York City. Marco co-hosts 2 of Darker Than Wax’s staple radio shows. 'Darker Than Wax FM’, a weekly mix show that airs live on The Lot Radio as well as ‘We Move’, a monthly broadcast recorded out of Red Bull Studios NY. The shows, 130 episodes deep, have a cult following and featured diverse guest such as Lefto, Flamingosis, B.Cool-Aid, Byron The Aquarius, Suzi Analogue, FaltyDL and others. Highly sought after for his deep digs and selections, Marco always connects the dots between the old and new. Whether Marco’s playing at major festival, Dimensions in Croatia, Potato Head Beach Club Bali for the sunset, or the smoked-out basement club Black Flamingo NYC for Discogs-endorsed ’24 Hours of Vinyl’ (presented by Music Is My Sanctuary) in Brooklyn, Marco’s ability to discern the vibe and dish out thoughtful and appropriate frequencies for head nodding or straight dance floor annihilation, he’s got it locked down.

Spearheading US operations, Marco is also core member of music label/collective Darker Than Wax, which has been constantly pushing the boundaries of underground/leftfield music, and supported by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Bradley Zero, and more.

RA event: https://www.residentadvisor.net/events/1237576


Closing out March at #boxoutwednesdays, we have the return of Malaysian jungle dwelling producer and DJ CEE alongside eclectic New York-based selector Marco Weibel and Berlin-based Opium Hum.

Marco Weibel was raised on a diet of soul, early Chicago/Detroit house, jazz and rare grooves. Originally from Singapore, his move to New York has only widened his musical reach. His sets take in beats, dancefloor jazz, boogie, Afro-Brazilian sounds, hip-hop, house/techno, footwork, dub and soundsystem culture.
He is a core member of music collective Darker Than Wax which has garnered support from the likes of Gilles Peterson and Bradley Zero. He has shared the stage alongside acts such as Francois K, Yaeji and Byron The Aquarius, amongst others. We're stoked to welcome him for his #boxoutwednesdays debut.

Opium Hum aka Michail Stangl is one of the key players in the global electronic music underground. Born in Moscow and active in the Berlin scene since 2005, he has built an impressive career both as a DJ and as a facilitator of underground culture. His DJ sets cycle through the vast scope genres and tempos he encounters on his world-wide trips, taking his audience from psychedelic acid taken from the depths of Berghain to the uptempo regions of footwork, with unexpected and surprising excursions to cutting edge dance floor sounds in-between. We look forward to welcoming him to the control tower at #boxoutwednesdays.

CEE has been in the game for over two decades, helping to shape global eclectic bass music until he moved from Vienna to Kuala Lumpur, setting up a studio in the heart of the jungle right outside the Berembun rainforest of Malaysia. With multiple solo albums and EPs under his belt, CEE is currently one half of Bass Sekolah. Along with multi-instrumentalist Darren Ashley, he is on a mission to make honest, soulful, forward-thinking electronic music. They have brought their sensual, sultry sound to festivals and club nights all over Asia.

Rooftop: Al Mat (guest artist) + Rodali

Coven Code continue their residency on the rooftop into its seventh month. Coven Code is a New Delhi based femme collective that aspires to build a creative culture around sound. They hope to embrace diverse talents by creating a safe, inclusive and multicultural community. They have a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment, unwanted touching, stalking and all forms of discrimination based on gender, disability, sexuality, race, religion, class, caste or age.

The only weekly residency in the country for underground sounds and culture, #boxoutwednesdays is more than just a night, it is an on-going movement that helps build and serve a community that remains neglected by the mainstream.

We are committed to ensuring that #boxoutwednesdays is a safe and inclusive space for all people. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any kind of verbal or physical harassment or abuse. If you ever feel uncomfortable or unsafe, please reach out to us right away.

Afrodisia 03

  • Intermission Bar at The Projector (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
Afrodisia.sg hosts a regular party at Intermission Bar - at The Projector to showcase and celebrate the best of African music. For the open-minded; an array of beats inspired by African music and culture. The essential objective amid sets is to strike a harmony between the Afrodisia Collective and presenting the crowd to new sounds and types they were not in any case mindful they loved. It is an ambrosial blend of melodic elucidations in a natural way.   We wanted to feature a local veteran of the DJ scene for our 3rd Edition and are very excited to announce FUNK BSTRD will be our featured guest DJ at  #Afrodisia03 . Expect blistering Afro-Centric sounds, Afrofunk, Afrodisco, Afrobeats, Afropop and Afrohouse. It gets raw, it gets gritty, it’s the root of survival!   FUNK BSTRD  Earning praises from a worldwide range of selectors that include the likes of Dam-Funk, Tama Sumo, San-Soda, Mike Huckaby, Jamie XX and 2562, Dean aka the Funk Bast*rd (one half of the Cosa nostra duo and co-founder of Singapore-based label Darker Than Wax) has been tirelessly pushing and promoting an alternative expression of leftfield music through his widely eclectic and genre-bending sets. Being the main A+R and creative mastermind behind DTW, the label has flourished tremendously over the past 5 years, cementing its place as one of the go-to labels out of South East Asia. His musical selection, which traverses between a huge variety of musical genres like deep jazz, soul, funk, boogie, brazilian grooves, deep house, hip hop and bass numbers have left many indelible marks on the dancefloors. It’s no surprise then that he has played alongside some of the world’s finest like Kyle Hall, Lefto, Recloose, Gerd Janson, Basic Soul Unit, Linkwood, Norman Jay, Souleance, Ramadanman / Pearson Sound, Krystal Klear, Tiger and Woods, Mike Huckaby, Seven Davis Jnr and most notably, warmed up for Dj Ez, Fourtet, Dam Funk and Jamie XX. His sets have also taken him around the world, playing most recently in New York, Brazil, Switzerland, Paris, London and Shanghai, just to name a few. In 2016, Funk B was also invited on BBC 1XTRA, Radar Radio, and swung through the legendary Brownswood basement of Gilles Peterson with a 2-hour exclusive Worldwide FM mix. Following that, he has completed 3 tours in Europe, and most recently, played in Dimensions Festival. The Funk Bast*rd always has something in the box that surprises. Just open those ears.

Fzpz 'Hidden Personas' Vinyl Release Party

We are very excited to announce the official vinyl release of Singapore's very own  Fzpz 's debut Ep 'Hidden Personas' at White Label Records.  The Ep was released earlier in May 2018, and has garnered international support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Lefto, Jamz Supernova, Simbad and many more. So we decided it was time to also release this little gem on a 12" with an elaborate artwork designed by  FUNK BSTRD  and  Fzpz .  Highly limited copies will be available for sale on the day itself, so rock up early to avoid disappointment!  Selectors for the night : FZPZ Funk Bast*rd William J  "Hidden Personas" is a poetic dichotomy of traditional and modern, classical and electronic, cultural and ethnic. It is also an apex of maturity, culture, and inspiration. Even the titles illustrate an episodic narrative, each a distinct persona and trait of the artist, revealed while on a personal journey of self-discovery.  This new resonance draws influences from 70s Soul, Neo-Soul, Jazz and even classical. The distinct orchestral soundscape is a significant dissonance from the usual microwave and throwaway beats, which also reflects his current influences of Phyllis Hyman, Miles Davis, and you hear a lot of Yutaka in “Swordsman”. Hidden Personas is executed with sophisticated dexterity, a clear indication of a new direction forward for FZPZ.
