SYNDICATE: The Second Anniversary

Posted on 01.30.12 to Media by SYNDICATE

After traveling to various corners of the world and playing to a sold-out show at the Esplanade few months back, we celebrate our anniversary where it all began 2 years ago: Home Club.

With the club as a canvas, resident visual artist Brandon Tay, collaborates with internationally acclaimed design collective, Phunk Studio, to transform the space into a visual playground.

The traditional SYNDICATE visual wall will be filled with collaborative content from the 2 artists as they reinterpret, remix and revisualize each other’s work. A special installation that charts out the SYNDICATE journey so far will also be unveiled to commemorate the anniversary. There is a third surprise piece which they have been working on and are tight-lipped about. You’ll just have to be there to find out more.

Music is not taking a back seat as the line-up features both seasoned players and fresh names from the local scene. The luminaries which need no introduction are Funk Bast*rd, MC Masterpiece and KoFlow with a special live set. It will also be a homecoming gig for Singapore’s own bass general, Vortex, who has been away for sometime. Kiat represents the SYNDICATE stable with his staple beats and bass.

Meanwhile, making their SYNDICATE debut will be Diphasic, who was featured in the first ever Beat Invitational, and recent FFF Girl DJ Bootcamp graduate, Saigon Kat.

Proving that Singapore still has an inexhaustible list of budding bedroom producers, the fifth Beat Invitational is set to unearth another round of beatific gems. Butterfly Imprint, ILOH:SHIX, LoopTape, The Architek and Darren Dubwise will be unleashing works that cut across all genres.

Event details are after the cut. See you this Saturday!
