As we inch closer to Heineken Thirst this year featuring David Guetta, Afrojack and many more, pre-parties were arranged from Heineken to get party-goers in the mood.
Ipoh, Penang and Johor Bahru reverberated to the sound of a special Heineken collaboration with Juice Magazine.
Celebrating all things Heineken Thirst, 01 November sees the release of a special 13th edition of Juice Magazine which delves deep into the world of Heineken Thirst in an attempt to commit the excitement, energy and magic of Malaysia’s premier dance music festival to print. With the kind of insider insight unique to Juice, this special issue also profiles the cities of the Pre-Party Series and the next generation of creative talents who are working to change the way we view their hometowns.
In Ipoh at the Sensation of Sound (S.O.S), Heineken Thirst openers BATE head up a night of hard-hitting progressive talent that also includes Heineken Found @ Thirst winner Phil K Lee and one of the scene’s most talented newcomers, the glamorous Yenn Lim on November 16.
Next, it was Penang at Cuvee on 23 November 2013 with Goldfish and Blink, Jee Hoe and Found @ Thirst runner up Darling Sabrina.
From Penang the party head on down to Johor Bahru on 30 November 2013 at Aruku with Twilight Actiongirl, Dangerdisko and +2dB.
As for the KL Series, Ohrwurm, featuring one of Spain’s leading techno DJs Cristian Varela, was a huge success at Vertigo on Saturday, 09 November. On Saturday, 24 November, the Series gets LOUD at Zouk Club with Dutch House music master Nicky Romero. Currently sitting at #7 in the DJ Magazine Top 100 DJs poll, Romero is hotly tipped to be one of the top DJs of tomorrow alongside legendary names like Tiesto and David Guetta.
As for me, I was at the pre-party at Zouk on the Friday, 29 November for Twilight Actiongirl's 10th Anniversary where Bunga, ChaseyLain, Ribut and XU have built up one of the most loyal followings in the country as TAG over the last decade.
It may be a drizzly night but the patrons slowly trickle in to Zouk's mainroom:
So are you ready for Thirst 2013? Hope to see you there!
