✖ KIAT (Syndicate | Metalheadz)
With a belief that creativity knows no format and all creations should have emotions, Kiat has built an extensive portfolio of work in visual art, music and art direction. His many titles include DJ, producer, visual artist, award-winning art director and co-founder of Syndicate.
As a pioneer of bass driven music in South East Asia, Kiat has been championing the adventurous side of leftfield electronica for close to two decades. He has shared deck duties with some of the world’s biggest names such as Goldie, Flying Lotus and Africa Hitech in both intimate clubs and huge festivals like the Singapore Night Festival and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide.
His production work landed him the honour of being the first Singaporean to be signed to respected UK label Metalheadz, with his debut release Feeder ending up on Goldie’s entry to the Ministry of Sound Masterpiece series. Other productions have aired on BBC Radio 1, BBC 1XTRA and on Singapore radio. In 2012, Kiat released his debut album The Inner Galaxy, “a cosmic voyage of sorts, traversing a spacious alien landscape of experimental electronica” (mnshift.net). This journey through the leftfield blends hip hop, dub and soulful electronica with international collaborators from New Zealand to Iceland.
✖ Daryl C
Daryl’s love for sharing music began at a young age with the joy of selecting tracks and recording mixtapes for friends and family. After being exposed to electronic music and club culture, curiosity made him push career boundaries and take his love for sharing music further.
With the simple goal of seeking music that makes people move (usually in the Detroit house, Chicago house, deep house, tech house, funk, soul and disco genres), he has seen himself picked up to play for ‘Para//el’ at Velvet Underground, ‘Jack’s Hit’ parties, ‘Flea and Easy’ at Zouk, Dope’s “Secret Party”, Tanjong Beach Club, Gem Bar, Overeasy, Loof, The Powder Room, as well as a weekly stint at The Black Swan.
At the end of the day, Daryl believes music should transcend all barriers and most importantly, be enjoyed. Let your hair down, enjoy the journey. Why be so serious?
