    Last year, 2,500 party-goers had the time of their lives on a 4D3N music festival, set on a Royal Caribbean Ship. This combination of non-stop partying with some of the greatest acts (while aboard the 70,000 tonne Royal Caribbean International Mariner Of The Seas!) is back this year so it’s no wonder tickets are running out fast.

    From 20 – 23 November 2015, fans from around the world will dance away to a string of electronic music legends, both regional and international. This will also include a pitstop at Langkawi for a private beach party. Check out the line-up here:

    ITS2015 full line up poster

    And as if it’s not already a one-of-a-kind festival, IT’S THE SHIP 2015 is also gaining its reputation for featuring acts that are not only great at what they do but are sociable people as well.

    “One of the key takeaways from fans who attended last year’s festival was the fact that they not only got to see their favourite acts perform live but they also got to interact with the artistes in person over the duration of the festival. Due to the laid back, vacation-like atmosphere, it is very possible,” explained Iqbal Ameer, Group Chief Executive Officer of The Livescape Group.

     

    The experience on the 15-deck Mariner of The Seas also comes with a casino, 10 pools and whirlpools, 17 bars, clubs and lounges, a duty-free shopping promenade, a full service day spa, an ice skating rink, a mini golf course, a full sized basketball court and a rock climbing wall overlooking the sea.

    Cabins on IT’S THE SHIP 2015 vary in price from USD588 to USD1,288 per person (exclusive of taxes and gratuity fees), but it’s selling out fast so check their website for more details.

    · Tiger Beer Releases Unofficial Official History of Singapore ·

    Have you ever thought about how the Kallang Wave and Chicken Rice was invented? Well, Tiger Beer a brand synonymous with the Singaporean identity and culture, has given this some serious consideration in light of the country’s 50th anniversary. The result was two mockumentaries dubbed the Unofficial Official History of Singapore.

    Kicked off this month, the campaign story goes like this… The ‘Unofficial Official History of Singapore’ was discovered recently, amongst other Tiger Beer relics and artefacts, in an aged and weathered crate in an abandoned pre-war bunker at the foot of Mount Faber by a local urban explorer. The clip presents a curious angle on the backstory behind two of the nation’s most distinct and iconic attributes – the Kallang Wave, and the ever-popular national dish, Chicken Rice. Viewers can watch the short films on Tiger Beer’s website.

    “Tiger Beer has been an intrinsic part of the Singapore identity and culture since its inception in 1932. As we celebrate the nation’s 50th birthday, we want Singaporeans to celebrate another great thing which was born in 1965 – the first Tiger Beer can. With our light-hearted campaign, Tiger aims to inspire Singaporeans to uncage their creativity and think about the origins and backstories behind some of the social peculiarities that have given Singapore its distinctive identity, in a fun way,” said Mr. Rene de Monchy, Head of Marketing, Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore.

    Inspired by the first Tiger Beer can in 1965, the brand will be releasing limited-edition adaptations of the classic 1965 theme in cans, pints and bottles format in commemoration of Singapore’s 50th anniversary.

    Other promotions include:

    – Four specially designed SG50 15-can (330ml) packs which will be available from 16 March 2015 at all major supermarkets and hypermarkets. Each pack (SGD35) comes with a limited edition t-shirt available in four different collectible designs.

    3D_SECONDARY_150105_KL-02_w01
    3D_SECONDARY_150105_KL-01_w01

    – Fans will also receive a limited edition SG50 t-shirt when they purchase a bucket of Tiger pints at SGD50 at all participating bars and outlets.

    – In line with the 1965 theme, consumers can also stand to redeem specially designed vintage analogue watches and vintage pens when they collect the corresponding crown liners from the limited edition SG50 quart bottle (633ml) available at all coffeeshops and hawker centres island-wide.

    · Asia’s Most Innovative Club Night with Paul Oakenfold ·

    Attica Singapore is collaborating with Google+ and YouTube to create an unparalleled live experience at its Paul Oakenfold event on 11 December 2014. This event is the official after-party for IMS Asia-Pacific (the International Music Summit in Singapore), which is being held in Asia for the first time.

    The collaboration will see the superstar DJ take part in a digital experiment with Google that aims to re-imagine live performance – using groundbreaking technology to bring people closer to the things they love.

    Paul Oakenfold said, “It’s fantastic to be involved with Google and Attica for this groundbreaking digital experience. It’s a great time for dance music in Singapore, and events like the IMS Asia-Pacific conference being held in Asia for the first time, only help to reinforce Singapore’s status as Asia’s ‘gateway to electronic music’.”

    The core of this interactive experience involves equipping 150 lucky guests with Google+ integrated Lightwave bioreactive wristbands. These wristbands, debuting for the first time in Asia, will enable the audience to feel closer and more connected to the performance. The crowd’s energy will fuel immersive real-time experiences – transforming audience engagement, movement and temperature  into reactive art on the night and subsequently, through Oakenfold’s ‘Planet Perfecto’ YouTube channel.

    PAUL OAKY LIVE SHOT

    The world is also being invited to the party through the use of Google Hangouts and YouTube, which will be streaming the entire experience live. Multiple cameras and data visualisations will be curated into a dynamic broadcast distributed online but also throughout the club – ensuring everyone stays close to the action. The stream can be viewed on the night from 1am via Paul Oakenfold’s Google+ page.

    Syndicate Ft. UNTOLD

    On October 21, 2014 / By
    · Syndicate Ft. UNTOLD ·

    Come 25 October 2014, audiovisual label Syndicate returns to Club Kyo to debut one of the most prominent producer/DJ from the UK, UNTOLD aka Jack Dunning, whose productions has reinvigorated the climate of dancefloors around the globe.

    First releasing music on Hessle Audio, where his ‘Kingdom’ single housed two slices of unsettlingly brilliant atmospheric bass weight, the North Londoner has gone on to release numerous scene stealing EPs as well as form two notorious labels, Pennyroyal and Hemlock Recordings.

    A true selector, UNTOLD’s Hemlock became a home to works by Mount Kimbie, Fantastic Mr Fox, CosminTRG, Ramadanman and James Blake. Not content to rest on this legacy, Dunning created a new imprint Pennyroyal in 2013, a home for “rough and ready” techno that has already seen stand out releases from J Tijn and Boner M.

    He now stands proudly as a tastemaker in his own right. Tracks like his freewheeling ‘Anaconda’, and ‘Stop What You’re Doing’ harbour the power to stop a dancefloor dead in inquisitiveness, they are two glowing examples of UNTOLD’s monstrously weighted approach to club music. Supple yet rough and relentlessly inventive. Appearing on labels such as Soul Jazz, Scuba’s Hotflush and Hessle Audio, Dunning soon began to drift from dubstep and apply his unique approach to Techno on Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons label. Dunning is gearing up to finally release his debut album on his own Hemlock Recordings.

    Drawing on his past experiences in Jungle and Hardcore, his ground breaking work in bass music and his more recent forays into 4×4, the album marks a seminal point in the career of UNTOLD – delivering on his mission to break new ground with each step.

    This UNTOLD debut in Singapore will be supported by artists from the Syndicate stable. The baton to pilot the aural journey for the night will be passed through the label’s artistes: Kiat, Gema, Max Lane, Darren Dubwise. Joining the line-up and repping the Kyo’s basement sound will be Norman C. Visuals will be presented by Brandon Tay, Flex and SSYSTM.

    Syndicate Ft. UNTOLD (UK)
    Date: 25 October 2014, Saturday
    Time: 11pm – 6am
    Venue: Club Kyo (133 Cecil Street, Singapore 069535)
