1 November 2012

Just looking at the photos of the previous instalment of Hennessy Artistry has got me all excited over again! Drinking, dancing and catching up with friends had been so much fun! Although I’m still slightly sick, but I’ve cancelled all events until Friday to focus on my recovery so that I won’t miss the pinnacle of H-Artistry 2012 this Saturday (2nd November) from 8.30pm onwards at Malaysia International Exhibition and Convention Centre (MIECC), Mines Resort City!

This time around, it will feature a stellar line up of artists from around the world, as well as a trademark mix of sights, sounds and party vibes befitting of a phenomenal climax for 2012’s blazing H-Artistry series. More than 3,500 guests will party at the red and black themed venue while enjoying long drinks from Hennessy Art of Mixing Zone, featuring the Hennessy 360 Cam.

Party goers will be in for a roller coaster ride of musical genres, styles and cultures from Korea and  Australia to the US and UK. Artists set to perform at the H-Artistry finale are: Winner of X Factor and UK’s R&B darling Alexandra Burke; world-renowned Australian DJ vixen Havana Brown, K-Pop boy band heartthrobs Block B, and Las Vegas’ edgiest DJ Starkillers a.k.a. Nick Terranova. Collaborations, epic mash-ups, spectacular blends and fist-pumping remixes will be aplenty throughout the night, complemented by the signature Hennessy V.S.O.P. long drinks: Hennessy Apple, Hennessy Berry, Hennessy Ginger and Hennessy Soda.

Details of performing artists:

Alexandra Burke
R&B – UK

Alexandra Burke from North London is the 2008 winner of The X Factor, a three-time chart-topper on the singles chart (her debut, a stirring cover of Hallelujah, sold 105,000 copies on its first day of release) and the creator of a UK number 1 album, Overcome, that features collaborations with the likes of Flo Rida Ne-Yo and RedOne. She can belt out a ballad and she brings energy in abundance once the tempo shifts up a gear.
Like all great pop music, her latest album “Heartbreak On Hold” effortlessly wraps lyrical sadness in songs that make you want to dance. From the frustrated stomp of first single Elephant – a song written about a relationship that was slowly stalling to the exuberant throw-your-cares-away dance rush of second single Let It Go, Heartbreak On Hold is an album that acknowledges the hard times but offers a window of opportunity for people to forget about it all. 
Havana Brown

DANCE – AUSTRALIA
As the only female DJ to sign a major label recording deal in Australia, Havana Brown has delivered on Universal Music’s expectations with multiple releases of her Crave compilation series, all charting and spurning successful national and international club tours. DJ Havana Brown has since put out some hugely successful tracks, and continues to take over Malaysian dance floors and airwaves with the euphoric track “We Run The Night” ft. Pitbull.
Starkillers

Starkillers
ELECTRO HOUSE – USA 
Formerly known as Nick Terranova, Las Vegas talent Starkillers has been cutting a swathe through the bolshier end of the global house music scene over the last few years with his tough-edged, eclectic sound.

He’s succeeded without the hyperbole that surrounds so many other artists, his popularity speaking for itself with two of Beatport’s Top 25 biggest-sellers of 2009 (including a Number 1 during the same year with his remix of Armand Van Helden’s classic The Funk Phenomenon), and more sales smashes over the last two years. Then there’s his Essential New Tune accolade from Pete Tong and an IDMA (International Dance Music Awards) nomination for his anthem Discoteka, and acclaimed remixes for some of the biggest names in the world – including Robbie Rivera, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Jerome Isma-Ae and iiO.

Block B

Block B
K-POP – KOREA

Block B was among the hottest K-Pop rookies to debut last year, and they have come a long way since. With three hugely successful records out, namely New Kids On The Block, Welcome To The Block and Do You Wanna B, Block B is one of the fastest rising K-Pop boy bands internationally, and have garnered lots of attention as well as a huge following throughout Asia.
Bringing hip-hop and K-Pop into the mix at the H-Artistry finale at MIECC, Block B is another crucial ingredient in the excellent mix of musical styles and genres that represents what H-Artistry stands for – The Global Art of Mixing.

Eva Simons – Netherlands
Headlining H-Artistry this September at KWC KL, Dutch vocal powerhouse and EDM siren Eva Simons has come a long way since her beginnings. Back in 2009, Eva Simon’s track entitled “Silly Boy” started to gain popularity on the internet and received attention from the likes of Kanye West. Bolstered by this initial success, Simons went on to sign a worldwide record deal at EMI, which led to even more notable records from her up to mid-2010. This was when Eva Simons & Mike Hamilton (also known as the writing team Topline Ink) wrote the song “Take Over Control”.

Eva Simons has since premiered her new single “I Don’t Like You” under Interscope Records, and her
tracks continue to pump up dance floors around the world with her distinct and power-packed vocals.

Angger Dimas – Indonesia
Hailing from Jakarta, 24 year old Angger Dimas is the epitome of young DJ-ing talent from around the region. Commanding an underground cult following in the party scene of South East Asia’s largest metropolis, Dimas started out young by picking up the guitar at the tender age of 7. His pursuit of creating
electronic dance music (EDM) began 3 years ago when he debuted his DJ-ing career in 2009.

In a short span of time, Dimas’ talent landed him a record deal with Australia’s mighty Vicious Recordings in early 2009. Dimas went on to spend the rest of his early years fine-tuning his craft, making a huge impact not only in Jakarta’s thriving club scene, but also amongst international electro house / EDM heavyweights such as Laidback Luke and Steve Aoki.

Angello. Eager to set the energy and pace this 8 September at H-Artistry, party goers can expect an
adrenalin-laced set with lots of fist-pumping moments as B.A.T.E. brings their eclectic sound to the
biggest party in Kuala Lumpur this September 2012.
