You’re often left wanting more of a particular feeling after you complete a series…and it doesn’t have to stop there! Before you start on a new series, makeOn December 17, 2016 / By Nookmag
You’re often left wanting more of a particular feeling after you complete a series…and it doesn’t have to stop there! Before you start on a new series, make that feeling last with a movie, like pairing the whimsical The Princess Bride to the delightfully quirky Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt or the criminally comedic The Big Short to the dramatically comedic Orange is the New Black.
After finishing a series, a majority of Netflix members (59%) take a pause, usually lasting three days, before committing to a new show. During that break, more than half (61%) watch a movie to keep the binge feeling alive. Whatever your mood, there’s something on Netflix for everyone.
According to Netflix, here are Singapore’s favourite binge pairings based on the mood they’re in:
Experience crime and mystery by pairing Making A Murderer and The Hunting Ground or How to Get Away With Murder and Inside Man
Keep that swagger when you move to The Godfather after Better Call Saul.
Other gangsta pairings include Breaking Bad and Inception, Marvel’s Luke Cage and 13TH, as well as Narcos and Cartel Land.
Girl Power Burning Bright
If you’re watching Grace & Frankie, carry on with Julie & Julia.
Other popular series-movie pairings include Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Fight Club, Orange is the New Black and The Big Short, as well as Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Sex and the City: The Movie.
Yearning for the Yesteryear
After you’ve finished reminiscing with Fuller House, continue feeling nostalgic with Grease.
Other popular series-movie pairings include Stranger Things and Super 8, as well as The Ranch and 17 Again.
However, if all you want is to invoke the festive spirit this December in between series, put on these Christmas classics:
This ensemble comedy is a charming treatise on romance, telling 10 intertwining London love stories, leading up to a climax on Christmas Eve.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Hapless Clark Griswold, his exasperated wife, Ellen, and their kids gear up for Christmas in this vacation instalment that became a holiday classic.
A Very Murray Christmas
Bill Murray rounds up an all-star cast for an evening of music, mischief and barroom camaraderie in this irreverent twist on holiday variety shows.
The Polar Express
In this warm-hearted tale, a young boy’s faith in the holiday spirit is revived after he makes his way by train to the North Pole on Christmas Eve.
DreamWorks Holiday Classics
Join your DreamWorks friends for these four holiday specials, featuring Shrek and Donkey, Hiccup and Toothless, and the wacky animals from Madagascar.
All movies and series are now streaming on Netflix — binge as you wish!
In an age where digital entertainment and media sources dominate people’s time, Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) relieves audiences from the screen to remind them of the unique magicOn December 15, 2016 / By Nookmag
In an age where digital entertainment and media sources dominate people’s time, Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) relieves audiences from the screen to remind them of the unique magic of theatre, through LIVE experiential trailers enacted by the production cast.
SRT is known as one of the most diverse and progressive theatre companies in Asia, with its goal to enrich, educate and entertain audiences by staging productions of the highest caliber, while ensuring every young Singaporean is exposed to arts and literature in order to foster a love of culture.
To promote the recent Charlotte’s Web production, SRT partnered with TBWA\Singapore to create an immersive and interactive trailer experience that no billion-dollar 3D movie can replicate.
Disrupting the routine pre-roll cinema ads, the team hijacked the screening room to execute a live-action re-enactment from Charlotte’s Web to give young audiences their first taste of theatre.
SRT is the only theatre company in Singapore with its very own venue, where it stages international productions, a season of exciting original plays and musicals, and a season dedicated to the younger audience. SRT believes strong programming for young audiences is what will develop the arts scene long-term, and reaches close to 70,000 children a year with young talent programmes and play-productions with collaborations from the best international talent on and off stage.
“The youth are exposed to more forms of entertainment than ever before,” said Gary Steele, executive creative director at TBWA\Singapore. “Theatre contends in a plethora of more accessible and cheaper entertainment options like gaming or Netflix. But amid the rising screen culture, we were able to remind people of the irreplaceable magic of live-theatre. Dynamic performances, unpredictability and playhouse atmosphere that cannot be replicated onscreen.”
Singapore has seen the rise of a vibrant art scene, with flagship events such as Art Stage, and the recent opening of the National Gallery. However, many still perceive performing arts as highbrow, unfamiliar and difficult to appreciate.
As a non-profit organisation, SRT aims to groom a new generation’s appreciation of literature and performing arts, whilst creating direct employment for up to 300 people a year. It is a key partner of the National Arts Council, helping progress the industry through local talent development (key to creating the best original productions for future revenue streams) and increasing audience growth by partnering with creative agencies such as TBWA.
“With this project, we reached out to a wider audience who might never have considered theatre as an option,” said Charlotte Nors, executive director at SRT. “We compete in a rich world of entertainment, with a growing number of 3D movies as Hollywood strives for more immersive cinema. But nothing gets you closer to the action than theatre – real actors, real props, real fantasized experiences shared with the audience as a whole. We even experimented with the first scented musical in 2013, Red Riding Hood, to stimulate more senses than ever before. We truly believe theatre has the ability to bring people to together, more so than any cinematic experience.”
Singapore’s biggest annual yuletide fair, Christmas Wonderland, returns to Gardens by the Bay for the third time running, and it’s all set to give visitors double the funOn December 13, 2016 / By Elizabeth
Singapore’s biggest annual yuletide fair, Christmas Wonderland, returns to Gardens by the Bay for the third time running, and it’s all set to give visitors double the fun with its expanded fairgrounds and activities.
Organised by Blue Sky Events, supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, this year’s edition is nearly double in size, with a 57,000 sqm event ground, up from last year’s 35,000 sqm.
Be amazed as the Gardens are transformed into a festive playground with activities for all ages. Returning favourites include the Italian Luminaire, which are sculptures of light based on 17th and 18th century Baroque architecture, handmade by skilled craftsmen using white wood from the south of Italy.
Children and parents will also be excited to note that the Ice Palace will also return with a 400 sqm ice skating rink, an all new ice slide and an expanded Snow Playground, now at 96 sqm, which is two times larger than last year’s. Enjoy ice skating and playing with real snow!
Likewise, the European-style Festive Market is back too, featuring a collection of specially designed wooden huts adapted from renowned Christmas markets throughout Europe. Visitors can enjoy a greater selection of festive dining treats from renowned food and beverage operators such as Brewerkz, Churros Factory, Hard Rock Cafe, Harry’s and The Travelling C.O.W. The market also offers a wide variety of Christmas gifts, such as Luminarie souvenirs, crafts, boutique goods and vintage finds.
In addition, visitors can anticipate a plethora of new and exciting experiences this year, including a Magical Forest, illuminated by 80 brilliantly lit Christmas Trees, and a Hi-5 Funtastic House, which is making its debut in Singapore at this event.
Visitors can also enjoy exciting carnival attractions, including eleven game stalls, and stand a chance to win attractive prizes! Do note however that these require separate tokens which can be purchased onsite.
Christmas Wonderland runs daily from 3.30pm to 11pm from 2 December 2016 to 1 January 2017. Admission is priced at SGD6 (9 to 15 Dec) and SGD8 (16 Dec to 1 Jan), and tickets can only be purchased online here. Get a promo code from VISA and use Visa Checkout to enjoy 25% off admission into Christmas Wonderland (limited to first 1,000 tickets daily).
If you’re visiting with your family, you’ll be glad to note that entry is complimentary for up to 3 children under 0.9m for each paying adult. Do consider taking public transport to this event however, as parking at Gardens by the Bay is anticipated to be very limited during this holiday season.

Building on the foundations of the decade-long Mosaic Music Festival, the new Mosaic Music Series will feature exceptional musicians at the forefront of their genres. The series also seeks to deepen audience understanding and appreciation of the musicians and their works as well as inspire Singapore’s music community.
That said, the Mosaic Music Series collection of concerts will kick start in 2017 with respective releases from each artist, starting with award-winning PJ Harvey and her acclaimed release, The Hope Six Demolition Project, together with her full 10-piece band. This will be her only stop in Southeast Asia as part of her international tour.
Likewise, Singapore artists, Piblokto & Bennett Bay will be unveiling their album launches with two concerts at the Esplanade Recital Studio.

Piblokto’s concert will feature fellow collaborators and good friends Sean Lam (Hanging Up The Moon), Victor Low (Affixen, Hanging Up The Moon), Andy Chia (SA(仨) and an ensemble of string musicians.
For this series, Singapore singer-songwriter Bennett Bay will also present music from his debut full-length album Compass.

In partnership with Native, The Minute List, an insider’s handbook to eating and drinking in the city, presents ‘A Very Asian Christmas’ featuring Paper Lantern Distilling’s Sichuan PepperOn December 9, 2016 / By Nookmag
In partnership with Native, The Minute List, an insider’s handbook to eating and drinking in the city, presents ‘A Very Asian Christmas’ featuring Paper Lantern Distilling’s Sichuan Pepper Gin.
Come 12 December (Monday), four of the city’s best bartenders will converge upon the city’s newest cocktail bar located in the hip enclave of Amoy Street, to shake and mix their way to a winning Asian-inspired cocktail that tastes like Christmas. Participants include Kai from Neon Pigeon, Sim from Atlas Grand Lobby & Bar, Nesh from Smoke & Mirrors, Ashwin Raj from 28 HongKong Street, Reena from Crackerjack, and representing the Native team, Leon.
Following the success of the Boilermaker Night that brought the London and Melbourne cocktail trend to the shores of Singapore, The Minute List collaborates with NATIVE to film a new episode of “Happening” – an online series that brings the local bartending community together for an evening of friendly, competitive fun and debauchery.
Housed at 52A Amoy Street, NATIVE is the newest kid on the block, and an Asian themed bar founded by 2015 Diplomatico World Champion, Vijay Mudaliar. The former barman of Operation Dagger prides NATIVE as a bar that looks to its roots; where local foraging for ingredients is a key focus, and the shelves are fully lined with regionally produced spirits like Rum from Nepal, Whisky from India, and of course, Sichuan Pepper Gin that is craft-distilled in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
With Paper Lantern Distilling as the spirit sponsor, the bartenders will be using Sichuan Pepper Gin as a base for their imagination to take over in creating a festive cocktail that pays homage to Asian flavours. To up the challenge, each bartender will be given five minutes to prepare their cocktail and present it to a panel consisting of three influential personalities from the bartending community – Kamil Foltan, Group Development Bar Manager of Potato Head, Vijay Mudaliar, founder of Native and 2015 Diplomatico World Champion and lastly, Simin Kayhan, Co-founder of Paper Lantern Distilling. The winning bartender will walk away with a bottle of Paper Lantern’s Sichuan Pepper Gin and SGD300 in cash.
The closed door competition will take place from 4 to 6pm, where the doors are open to all from 6pm onwards for anyone to join in the seasonal, boozy festivities. To kick up the good vibes a notch, guests will be able to enjoy the Asian-inspired Christmas cocktails as whipped up by the bartenders at a special price for the whole night.

This season, Martell introduces Martell NCF (Non Chill Filtered), the new cognac that is set to light up the night. Where most cognacs are filtered below 0°C, MartellOn December 8, 2016 / By Nookmag
This season, Martell introduces Martell NCF (Non Chill Filtered), the new cognac that is set to light up the night. Where most cognacs are filtered below 0°C, Martell NCF is unique among cognacs as it is filtered at room temperature, thus preserving its full potential to unleash irresistibly smooth, velvety and expressive aromas when served with ice or with a mixer.
Offering a refreshing new option for partygoers who want a dynamic, sophisticated and deliciously easy signature drink, Martell NCF dances on the palate with sensual hints of apricot jam and vanilla, with a rounded, and well-balanced finish ending on notes of citrus peel, candied fruit, mandarin and pink grapefruit.
In terms of aesthetics, the NCF bottle has a cutting-edge design to match its innovative taste and creation. The bottle itself is dressed in a reflective metallic copper coating that commands attention, while a transparent bottom reveals the gorgeous amber gold and copper hues of NCF. Likewise, glossy white lines on the bottle evoke the filtration process, and glow in the dark under UV light.
A revolutionary new vision of Cognac for millennials, NCF made its global debut at #LightUpNCF, the brightest party of the year on 25 November 2016 at Infinite Studios. #LightUpNCF had a stellar line-up of the loudest local acts, including ShiGGA Shay, Rave Republic, DJ Tinc, and Bounce Squad.
For its global launch in Singapore, Martell collaborated with three tastemakers who embody the ideals behind NCF – a curiosity for life and a desire to ignite the passion that lies within and experience the light that makes the world come alive. These three ambassadors – hip-hop artist ShiGGa Shay, fashion blogger Rachel Wong, and DJ Tinc – live by these ideals and have since made a name for themselves. Together with Martell, they have created a music video that expresses the ideals of NCF, set against a new single by ShiGGa called “In My Hand”, written specially for the launch of NCF.
The invite-only party celebrated the launch of NCF with drinks flowing and music banging, and kickstarted with ShiGGa Shay’s new music video, In My Hand, which premiered at #LightUpNCF.
“Life is short, therefore finding your light and following it with all your heart would mean to chase your dreams boldly and never give up, no matter what people say to try and bring you down.” — ShiGGa Shay
Proudly born and raised in Singapore, ShiGGa Shay has been making waves in the local music industry. From producing beats in the studio to directing and editing his own music videos, he has a knack for crafting music which instantly connects with the Singapore audience. This ability to appeal to the every-man has led him to the top of the charts with a legion of fans. ShiGGa Shay is also a co-founder of Grizzle Grind Crew, which acts as an independent collective dead-set on elevating the local hip-hop scene.
“Sometimes, you just have to step out of your comfort zone to pursue your passion and do what you love.” — Rachel Wong
In just four years, Rachel Wong, Bloggerati by Nuffnang, has become an online personality not to be ignored. With more than 154,000 followers on Instagram under her belt, she has turned her passion for fashion into a successful career, sharing fashion and styling tips with her fans and followers.
“I believe everyone is born with a purpose; they just have to try hard enough to find out what is their reason for waking up the next morning. Keep searching and I promise you that, one day, you will find that purpose.” — DJ Tinc
TINC is a DJ based in Singapore who has skyrocketed into the local and international club scene. She became the first and youngest female DJ to hold a monthly residency night (M.O.B) in Zouk. To lend a helping hand to aspiring DJs, she has opened an academy called This Beat Is Sick where she mentors and shapes the future of Singapore’s dance scene.
It’s go-time! The seventh annual St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival Singapore will feature a stacked indie music line-up, some whose names are already familiar and others whom we’re bettingOn December 5, 2016 / By Nookmag
It’s go-time! The seventh annual St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival Singapore will feature a stacked indie music line-up, some whose names are already familiar and others whom we’re betting on to make it big. Electronic, hip-hop, R&B, dance, future soul, pop-folk, punk… Laneway has it all.
Among the many artistes exhibiting their cool at Laneway Festival Singapore 2017, here’s a peek at what’s in store. While one of the biggest names in Singapore’s history of shoegazing, Astreal, is performing at the festival this year; for the very first time, acts from Japan – Wednesday Campanella and KOHH – have also made it to the lineup!
My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, and Curve prominently influence ASTREAL, known for its shoegaze post rock and ambient rock sounds. The band, having played at Zoukout, Lime Sonic Bang, Baybeats and clubs in the region, is famous for its contentious gigs. Two albums, a three-year hiatus and several metamorphoses since its inception in 1992, the group continues to rouse the crowd. Astreal’s third album will be released end 2016 or early January – yes, just in time for Laneway!
Preternaturally talented songwriter AURORA whisks in from Norway. The teen sensation’s fantastical, assured debut, All My Demons Meet Me As A Friend, is filled with euphoric pop moments that belie the introspective nature of her thoughtful lyrics. Her performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert were nothing short of mesmerising. Have a listen to her breakout single ‘Running With Wolves’.
Canadian high-school buddies Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance makeup BOB MOSES. Producing late-night dance floor numbers with a guitar-driven, pop sensibility, Bob Moses effortlessly glides from genre to genre, borrowing from electronica and indie-rock but a slave to neither. Entertainment Weekly, Billboard Magazine, Dancing Astronaut and Hilly Dilly called Days Gone By, the duo’s debut album, one of the best of 2015, while online music mag Resident Advisor ranked the master of its craft among 2014 and 2015’s top 20 live acts. Bob Moses is tipped to be a surprise hit at Laneway.
From Indonesia come Anggung Suherman (Angkuy) and Ryan Nobie Adzani. Together, they are BOTTLESMOKER. Experimental electronic pop, or indietronic instrumental, is Bottlesmoker’s forte; the alchemy of toy musical instruments – the glockenspiel, the hand bell and the melodica – and customised equipment, its signature; and intimate harmony in catchy and unusual music, its goal.
New Jersey hip-hop producer CLAMS CASINO is widely credited with setting the
template for modern rap music, thanks to his influential Instrumental Mixtape series and production credits for heavyweights like Vince Staples, Lil B, Danny Brown and FKA twigs. His debut album, 32 Levels, features an expertly curated slew of guests, including Laneway grad Samuel T. Herring (Future Islands) and Staples. It also oozes versatility, establishing him as a talented artist in his own right.
Floating Points (DJ Set)
Already a respected DJ in the league of Four Tet and Jamie xx, Eng-land’s FLOATING POINTS is now creating a stir as a dance-music trailblazer. His debut LP, Elaenia, is an abundance of sweeping, complex sounds and slow-building energy, making for timeless and poignant electronic music. ‘Nespole’, the album opening, is particularly captivating: a musical analogy for all things Sam Sheppard – a producer, a neuroscientist, a label founder, an ensemblist and a visual artist.
Gang of Youths
GANG OF YOUTHS has earned its mantle as one of Australia’s most enthralling live acts. Fronted by the charismatic David Le’aupepe, the five-piece band employs a wall of sound guitars and stadium-ready vocals to compelling effect. Gang of Youths’ critically acclaimed debut album, The Positions, scooped a number of Australian music award noms in 2015.
Back in 2014, experimental pop outfit GLASS ANIMALS captured the attention of both critics and music fans with Zaba. With its recently launched album, How To Be A Human Being, the English quartet has scored again. At once wildly imaginative and meticulously crafted, the triple j Feature Album is replete with charming characters, interesting beats and polished pop hooks. Its exuberant, ambitious and engaging live performances are icing. At this rate, Glass Animals is destined for greater things.
JAGWAR MA returns to Laneway. Its sizzling debut album, Howlin’, has won fans all over the world, achieved through its danceability and innumerable hooks as well as the band’s furious touring. October 2016 has seen the Australia-raised, UK-based trio dropping its second album, Every Now & Then. The exuber-ant blend of sunshine, soul and techno sounds like nothing and nobody else. The lead single ‘O B 1’ and the album centrepiece ‘Give Me A Reason’ explain the group’s popularity.
Japan has never been known for its hip-hop scene. KOHH may just be the one to change all that. Over several years, the rapper produced mixtapes, one after another. In 2014, he released his debut full-length, Monochrome. But it was 2015 that lauded KOHH with the attention he deserves. His guesting on It G Ma, the YouTube viral smash by Korea’s Keith Ape, left a mighty huge impression on viewers. He layered on the buzz with two albums, a mixtape and a truckload of videos. KOHH’s Dirt release, a combination of rock influences and defiant positivity brewing in dark, hard undertones, popped at no. 2 on the indies chart and nabbed the top spot on iTunes’ hip-hop chart just 30 quick minutes of its launch. June 2016 ushered in Dirt II. Is it as good as Dirt? You tell us.
The endearing melodic punk group, LUCA BRASI, unleashed its third album in April this year, a labour of love that was put together over a couple of years amid a frenetic tour schedule. If This Is All We’re Going To Be marries melody, trademark meandering guitar lines, big drum sounds and self-examining lyrical content with the foundational punk and rock ideals that have inspired the band. The result is a dynamic package of cohesion, power and emotion. If This Is All We’re Going To Be received a triple j Feature Album nod, made an impressive debut on the ARIA Charts, and blasted to the top of the AIR Charts.
Swift, socially conscious lyricism and no-BS delivery are the hallmarks of MC and poet MICK JENKINS. The wordsmith has collaborated with Joey Bada$$, the breakout star of rap collective Pro Era, producer Kaytranada, and rap and hip hop artistes Vic Mensa and Chance the Rapper. Following two outstanding mixtapes in 2014 and 2015, The Water[s] and Wave[s] respectively, his debut full-length[T]he [H]ealing [C]omponent came in hot in late September, likely to be the most important hip-hop release of 2016.
MR. CARMACK occupies a frontier some-where in-between genres. Tasty, inventive hip hop beats form the bedrock of his music. The American is efficient and braced with a grinding work ethic, too: Just two months after sharing his 2016 Yellow EP, he let loose an epic 54 tracks on SoundCloud. There’s more where all that came from, as hints of new music abound.
Future-soul singer and songwriter NAO is on track to make it big. Her killer single, ‘So Good’, and debut EP of the same name were deserving standouts of 2014. In 2015, NAO appeared on electronic music duo Disclosure’s Caracal, and this year, she made a huge impact with For All We Know. The debut full-length release saturated with glossy R&B, sculpted grooves and sultry coos got people on both sides of the Atlantic talking about one of the UK’s brightest new talents.
NICK MURPHY makes his first trip back to Singapore after dispensing with his alias, Chet Faker. His dynamic performance will be a showcase of existing catalogue and new material. ‘Fear Less’ gives a preview of Murphy’s brilliant new sound that amalgamates past and present influences. Murphy’s debut album, Built On Glass, has gone platinum, and his recent collabs with musicians Marcus Marr and Flume were also winners. The international artiste has sold out headline tours and played throughout Europe, Asia and North America at longstanding music festivals, such as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival, the Glastonbury Festival and the Primavera Sound Festival.
Sampa the Great
Born and raised in South Africa, and now based in Australia, SAMPA THE GREAT created a massive buzz with her debut The Great Mix-tape in 2015. The adventurous mind bent on pushing the boundaries wove dense lyrical mazes with her verses, conjuring a lush, imaginative world, with music ranging from the spoken word to pure rapping; stops at psychedelic and bluesy waypoints called for attention. After recently nailing a slot supporting rapper Kendrick Lamar, Sampa The Great is on the fiery trail to releasing an EP later this year.
SAM RUI makes it clear that R&B is alive and kickin’ in Singapore. The vocals that previously gave strength and purity to folk and indie-pop tunes now pack an equal punch with sensual, sassy numbers, proving why it was a stunningly brilliant step on her part to move past singing YouTube covers to writing her own R&B songs.
Stars and Rabbit
Raw simplicity in composing, arranging and performing pop-folk music is what STARS AND RABBIT is all about. Each song is steeped in personal experiences, threaded through with filaments of imagination. Performing at Laneway and having its song, ‘The House’, featured in British short film Wander: The Indonesian duo’s dream of travelling around the globe and spreading magic may be on its way to fulfilment.
At just three years old, TASH SULTANA picked up a guitar. Now 21, the self-taught and self-made pocket rocket is blessed with vocal dexterity – she beatboxes! – and an enviable skill with the guitar. Tickets have been flying out of the door for her first run of headline shows across Australia, Europe and the UK; no small feat for an artiste who got her big music break filming home videos in her bedroom.
The Julie Ruin
Frontwoman of THE JULIE RUIN, riot grrrl and punk icon Kathleen Hanna is back to finish what she started. Six years after the raucous debut of The Julie Ruin, the band flaunts its sophomore album, Hit Reset, and a new direction merging Hanna’s punk-rock roots and the electroclash sound of her previous incarnation, Le Tigre. The punchy single ‘I’m Done’ shows why Hanna is a living legend.
Grammy-winning songwriter and UK heart-throb TOURIST, or Will Phillips, has released U, a highly anticipated debut full-length album. It is an unsuspecting break-up album overflowing with dance-floor burners and high contrasts. Topping the Hype Machine twice, landing triple j Feature Al-bum status and selling out his first run of Australian shows in a matter of days: Tourist is indisputably one of the most in demand electronic acts of 2016 and 2017.
T-REX produces eclectic, bombastic and multi-textural sounds. Playing post-rock to progressive metal to jazz, one of the latest bands to hit Singapore is fast cementing its name as an incredible live music act. The band’s seamless switching and swapping of instruments adds to its performances, which brim with dense and complex rhythms often tied to math rock.
Under his nom de plume of TYCHO, US-based visual artist, Scott Hanson creates conscientiously composed minimal techno. Awake, his gorgeous, eight-track release emanating warmth, was an electronic standout of 2014. Earlier 2016, Tycho returned with the single, ‘Division’. It precedes his upcoming studio album, rumoured to drop around the Laneway run.
Somewhere in Japan’s coexistence of the idol sphere, the J-rock reality and the programmed beats enclave lies WEDNESDAY CAMPANELLA, or Suiyōbi no Campanella. Consisting of Komuai, Kenmochi Hidefumi and Dir.F, the trio has rocketed towards popularity within four years. The enigmatic cocktail of house, techno and chill out music covers unexpected subjects like guided bus tours, vampires and Hokkaido food. Wednesday Campanella has shown their pretty darned memorable stuff at various music festivals: Summer Sonic 2015, Rising Sun Rock Festival 2015, Arabaki Rock Fest.15 and SXSW 2016. And soon, Laneway Festival will be part of the list.
WHITE LUNG is an uncompromising punk band with talent and ambition in equal parts. Signed to the legendary Domino Records label, Mish Barber Way, Kenneth William and Anne-Marie Vassiliou produce forceful social commentary over razor sharp, visceral songs. Over the course of three LPs, the Canadian band has maintained relentless progressiveness – White Lung is as interesting now as it was during its youthful rage-fuelled days. Outspoken frontwoman Barber-Way’s perspectives of feminism culled from her varied experience as an advice columnist and journalist shine through in the trio’s fourth album, Paradise, which was released in May 2016.
Chicago band WHITNEY charms folk with deep lashings of soul. Light Upon the Lake, its debut, was anointed Best New Music by Pitchfork. The album is infinitely enjoyable but what’s more amazing is how Whitney makes well-crafted, easy-on-the-ear music seem so easy to produce. Lyrically, Whitney (mostly) woos with the universal theme of heartbreak. Still, the toe-tapping vitality of the music invites endless joyful listens. We believe it’s the happiest sad music you ever did hear.

This December, light up your Christmas with the dazzling Universal Journey – an all-new Guinness World Record breaking experiential festive light display at Universal Studios Singapore (USS).
The centerpiece attraction of the USS’ annual Santa’s All-Star Christmas celebrations, Universal Journey takes visitors to an enchanted wonderland, made all the more magical by being brilliantly illuminated with sparkling rainbow lights from floor to ceiling.
Universal Journey features an astronomical 824,961 light bulbs, setting a new Guinness World Records title for the largest light bulb display in an indoor venue. This is almost double the previous world record of 449,658 light bulbs, set in Romania in 2010.
The attraction, which took two months to construct, features eight thematic zones. Traverse a kaleidoscopic time warp tunnel to other worldly locations, gaze in wonder at towering trees of the Enchanted Pine Forest, and feel the Christmas cheer upon arriving at the Land of Great Gifts, adorned with Christmas presents of all shapes and sizes.
You can even meet and greet with famous stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Betty Boop and Charlie Chaplin, all decked out in their Christmas outfits, for photo opportunities while on your journey.
Also, look out for two new exciting experiences in this year’s Santa’s All-Star Christmas: A quaint Santa’s Village, home to talking reindeer, the Gingerbread Man and Santa on his sleigh, as well as musical production, Bah Humbug! A Christmas Spectacular, showcasing 17 all-star cast such as the Minions, Little Match Girl, Snow Queen and Sesame Street friends.
“This year, we have upped the ante for Santa’s All-Star Christmas with new experiences including the visually spectacular and dazzling Universal Journey and the magical Santa’s Village,” said Mr. Jason Horkin, Senior Vice President of Attractions at Resorts World Sentosa. “We look forward to bringing the best Christmas cheer to our guests during this special time of the year.”
This festive season, park hours are extended till 9pm every night. Also expect snowfall, fireworks, festive light displays, as well as new musical performances and appearances by the park’s very own all-star cast.
Santa’s All-Star Christmas will be held from 1 December 2016 to 2 January 2017. Tickets are available at SGD74 (Adult), SGD56 (Child) and SGD36 (Senior). If you’re planning an evening visit, enjoy an after 5pm family bundle, priced at SGD134, which includes admission for two adults and one child, as well as retail and dining vouchers.

Calling all Pokémon trainers! Do you remember frantically racking your brains during commercial breaks, trying to figure out ‘Who’s That Pokémon?’ on the hit TV series? If you think you still have what it takes to be a Pokémon master, then you definitely need to test out your skills at the Pokémon Research Exhibition at Resorts World Sentosa’s S.E.A Aquarium.
Held for the first time outside of Japan, the exhibition, which is located at the exit gallery of the S.E.A. Aquarium, is the ultimate Pokémon quiz. Trainers can discover more than 200 Pokémon characters spanning various generations in three types of Pokéballs, each representing a different level of difficulty.
To have a go at the game, simply pick up a regular Poké Ball (easy), Great Ball (medium) or Ultra Ball (hard), and visit four of eight interactive stations to get different clues about the Pokémon in your ball.
You can, for example, use the Face Magnifier station to reveal a selected part of the face of the Pokemon, the Outline Shooter station to see the Pokémon’s outline, or perhaps the Weight Gauge to reveal whether your Pokemon is a heavyweight like Snorlax (460kg) or featherlight like Cottonee (0.6kg)!
If you’re feeling up for a challenge, make one of your selected stations the Cry Checker, which lets you listen to the cry of the Pokémon in your ball. Just in case you’re wondering though, it replays the sound the Pokémon makes in the Nintendo game – not the Pokémon shouting out its name as it does in the TV series. That’d be way too easy!
While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up a handy reference pamphlet that corresponds with the Pokéball you chose – aside from listing all the Pokémon that could possibly reside in your Pokéball, it also helps you write down clues.
After visiting all four stations, head on over to the Answer Station to identify the pokemon in your Pokeball.
Other highlights of the exhibition include a huge Pokedex wall, with as many as 721 Pokemon, and appearances by an iconic Pikachu mascot, dressed up in a lab coat, everyday at 11.30am, 2.30pm and 5.30pm.
The Pokemon Research Exhibition opens daily from 10am to 7pm. Tickets are priced at SGD35 for adults and SGD23 for children or seniors, and includes entry into the aquarium. The exhibition will run till 2 January 2017.

I am honored to be part of this closing campaign of Jiak Kim and definitely excited for the club’s move to Clarke Quay. It marks yet another milestone for the brand and I’m confident that this is just the start to even greater things, both locally, regionally and globally” — Benny Heng, Managing Director of Zouk Singapore.

“All good things must come to an end, for better and bigger amazing things to happen. It is definitely with a heavy heart that we bid goodbye to Jiak Kim, but we are also very excited for the big move and to share the new spaces and create new experiences. As part of our closing campaign of #ZoukAtJiakKim, we will be bringing back some key music nights that helped to shape Zouk over the past 25 years, through generations of club kids and Zoukettes.

Our tastes are some of the greatest indicators of who we are – the films we watch, the clothes we wear, etc. What we choose to entertain ourselvesOn November 15, 2016 / By Nookmag
Our tastes are some of the greatest indicators of who we are – the films we watch, the clothes we wear, etc. What we choose to entertain ourselves with is a reflection of our personality. As a brand that has shunned conventional watch industry standards since 2012, SEVENFRIDAY understands the need to stand out and stand up for who they are. Its industrial avant-garde watches aside, SEVENFRIDAY’s love for all things different has led to several global lifestyle elements. From a bistro lounge that doubles up as a watch gallery in Jakarta, to a full-on punk rock gig in London, SEVENFRIDAY has embodied the philosophy that different is better.
This year, the brand delves deeper into the world of sub-cultures and music, presenting SEVENFRIDAY LIVE, an experience like no other. A music experience for the discerning tastemaker, SEVENFRIDAY Live was born out of the same passion for music that one can find in underground secret gigs – a do-it-yourself attitude laced with a rebellious streak for all things commercial. Kicking off the inaugural experience in Singapore, SEVENFRIDAY Live saw Singapore’s most underrated musical export Xhin (pronounced “sheen”) take the stage.
Best described as a “sound futurist”, the multi-instrumentalist has dabbled in several sub-genres from progressive metal to minimal tech and played in high-profile clubs all across the world. Xhin’s set took guests into the industrial world of distortion and electrical riffs, a reflection of SEVENFRIDAY’s unique design philosophy.
Alongside Xhin onstage was local singer-songwriter Anise on her violin, bringing a unique live experience, by fusing progressive metal with jazz, classical and electronic elements. In a set that showed off the diverse influences of both artistes, Anise proved that the violin need not be pigeonholed to classical music.
SEVENFRIDAY Live was inspired by founder Daniel Niederer’s love for music. “Music is, in my opinion, one of the most emotional artforms, with different styles appealing to different moods and/or personalities. It can easily unite people of different cultures, religions and races and is a possible powerful tool to spread a message of freedom.”
At the transformed Cherry Discotheque, SEVENFRIDAY Live also saw the artwork of visual designer, FrankNitty3000, bringing guests on an alternative journey. Pushing the boundaries of conventional norms, Frank describes his artwork as the “deformation and juxtaposition of familiar existing still imagery” that has been given a second moving life.
The visceral experience of senses is just the first step for SEVENFRIDAY Live. In taking SEVENFRIDAY Live on a global tour, the brand hopes to bring together fans of the brand and immerse them in the ever-bold world of music. As SEVENFRIDAY believes, “Show me, don’t tell me.” What other form of passion is as hard to describe as the love for music? So show us, don’t tell us what the reflection of your personality is.
Xhin (pronounced as “sheen”) has been crafting ominous cuts of cutting-edge electronic music since 1997. Building a forte in sound design, he is best described as a sound futurist. His identical rhythmic structure and compositional techniques which incorporate elements of techno, tight sub bass, ambient and IDM delivers a hint of chaotic soundscape amidst artistry. Xhin is now signed to Berlin-based techno label, Stroboscopic Artefacts to release his dark, intense and experimental side of things. This will be yet again the beginning of an old new direction for him to explore and experiment sounds even deeper for his future releases.
Singer-songwriter Anise writes about her hometown Singapore and the heartbreak her situation sometimes brings; and occasionally also about the rough terrain of love and loss. Her soft vocals have been described as ‘feathery’ and ‘misty’, and her stage presence lures the audience into her cocoon of nervous energy. Anise pairs off-kilter chords with tender lyrics and poignant storytelling into her songs.
Starting his dynamic career in The Netherlands, Frank graduated from the esteemed Design Academy Eindhoven in 2005. In a few short years, Frank has developed a unique visual aesthetic and fervent enthusiasm in all of his work. He has worked in Europe, Tokyo, creating films and ads for brands like Adidas, Reebok and Heineken. Frank’s work can be described as vibrant & energetic yet poetic at times. His experience with short and long format as well as his technical expertise allows him to push the boundaries of conventional norms.

Fans of the wildly successful Avengers movie franchise can now live out their vigilante dreams too. Following successful runs in New York, Seoul, Paris and Las Vegas, the MARVEL’S AVENGERS S.H.I.E.L.D Exhibition finally makes its way to Singapore.
After checking it out at the Singapore Science Centre, Arman Shah lists five things that fellow self-proclaimed geeks can look forward to at this experiential exhibition.
Probationary agent training
Bid a temporary farewell to civilian life and prepare to undergo training as a recruit before becoming an official S.H.I.E.L.D agent. You’ll be handed a communications device (alternatively, you can download the app on your mobile phone) through which Agent Maria Hill will brief you on your mission and offer access and insight into every exhibit.
High Performance Test Lab
Think you can handle the Super Soldier programme that Steve Rogers underwent to become the world’s first Avenger? Put your physical prowess and mental sharpness to the test at the High Performance Test Lab. Undergo the strength and cognitive reflex assessments to prove that you’re just as fit and mentally acute as Captain America.
What goes on in the mind of the Hulk to trigger his transformation? How is the Bifröst Bridge able to transport Thor from Asgard to Earth? What are the scientific properties of vibranium that’s used to make Captain America’s shield? Get your answers from the touchscreen panels that take superhero trivia to a whole other level of geeky-cool.
Superhero costumes and weaponry
Your obsession with superhero costumes doesn’t have to end just because Halloween is over. An impressive collection of costumes and weaponry belonging to both superheroes and villains are on display behind well-polished glass panels. Admire the sleekness of Black Widow’s skintight leather suit and feel dwarfed by the Hulkbuster that stands over 3m tall.
Augmented reality games
Let’s face it – we all want to know what it’s like to don Tony Clark’s crime-busting suit. At the Iron Man Advanced Engineering Bay, you can put on the suit in an augmented reality setting and actually shoot out blasters from your hands! During the final stage of your recruit training, you can also team up with fellow visitors in the Game Room to battle villains before you officially become a S.H.I.E.L.D agent. Too fun, too cool.

ZOUK Halloween 2016 welcomes you to The Scream Diner on 29 October
On the 29 October, Zouk will be revisiting an eerie past that has been long forgotten. In the spirit of Halloween, Zouk will undergo a transformation that will take all guests back to a time and space shrouded by a dark, twisted memory of ‘The Scream Diner’.
Set in 1958, The Scream Diner was once a popular and well-known hangout for many who live around the Jiak Kim neighborhood. At its peak, the American-style diner was famed for its scrumptious burgers, decadent alcoholic slushies and killer pop tunes which were occasionally accompanied with a crew of dancers for special parties. Until the vanishings began…
Within a span of one year, missing reports with over 50 cases of mysterious disappearances were filed. Upon investigations, the only link gathered from the reports were sightings of the missing at The Scream Diner, which led owner, Mr. O’Donnell to become the prime suspect. Just when the warrant of arrest was issued and interrogations were about to begin, O’Donnell disappeared and the police suspected that he had fled upon realizing that investigations were creeping on him. Upon searching the restaurant grounds, a cryptic message written with blood was found smeared across the front doors –“One World, One Music, MY TRIBE, MY DANCE”.
The case has been left unsolved for decades until echoes of the smeared message were recently heard by patrons. The echoes have sparked a chilling suspicion that O’Donnell is back and he is set to continue where he had left off at The Scream Diner on 17 Jiak Kim Street.
A visual spectacle upon entry, the classic American diner and crime scene theme will spill across all stages with decorations including hanging meats, kitchen pots, knives, gumball machine and of course, a splatter of gory surprises through every corner of the club.
Promising to deliver an over-the-top horror house experience, revelers can expect to be spooked throughout the night – expect torture chambers, hauntings, and a schedule of role-plays and performances across the rooms. The Zouk main room and Phuture will both transform into the heart of the main crime scene – the diner, while Velvet Undergound-Dance will give diners a peak into O’Donnell’s sacrifice room and Velvet Underground-Lounge will feature a diner classic – the milkshake bar.
In the grand tradition of every Zouk Halloween celebration, there are up to SGD15,000 worth of prizes up for grabs! All revelers are encouraged to bring their A-game in dressing up for a chance to snag one of the three attractive best-dressed prizes. A special ‘Best Social Media’ prize will also be given out this year for one lucky winner among those who snap an
Instagram shot with the hashtag, #ZoukHalloween during the night.
