IT’S THE SHIP, Asia’s largest festival at sea reveals its final lineup, as it prepares to set sail on its fourth edition this November 17-20.
Adding to the likes of Krewella, Yellow Claw, and hip-hop collective of the moment 88Rising, are an eclectic mix of world-class artists, all of whom will be sending revellers into a frenzy on-board the Genting Dream. First up is trance mainstay, Andrew Rayel, whose work under Armin Van Buuren’s Armanda label has jettisoned him to international stardom. Continuing on this theme is Finish duo, Super8 & Tab who have also championed the Armanda imprint, as well as providing remixes for the likes of Armin, Above & Beyond and Comic Gate. Be sure to catch both of these epic sets on-board.
Another surprise announcement comes in the form of Panjabi MC, who made his name with bhangra/hip hip crossover hit ‘Mundian To Back Ke’. The remix that featured Jay Z caught the attention of an international audience; with Panjabi MC going onto win a MOBO and an MTV Europe Music award. For the fans of world music on-board, this is certainly a must see.
A host of Singapore local talent have also been added to the bill including hip-hop sensation Shigga Shay, party-starter DJs Jade Rasif and Rave Republic, as well as Zoul club resident Matthew.
