TREC, Kuala Lumpur’s newest entertainment hub, is officially open to the public. The Quad, an area located between Zouk KL and Electric Boulevard, debuts its very first flea market on January 31, 2016 to include a music-centred programme including William Singe, Daphne Charice and OJ Law. DJs are LapSap, Xes Xes, Naufal & I-sky and Tubby, and Bunga.
Fan Alert: A.S.A’s inaugural outing will see headlining act – William Singe – Australian singer, songwriter and producer who made waves as a YouTube sensation. The 23-year-old will be performing exclusively at A.S.A.
A.S.A will be held at The Quad, an event space located between Zouk KL and Electric Boulevard. The 61/2-hour event, a TREC initiative that took two months to put together, is expected to draw at least 1,000 visitors.
TREC’s managing director Cher Ng says: “A.S.A marks the first collaborative event for TREC in a three-part instalment, and it is also a preamble of more such events that would be held at TREC on a regular basis for different audiences.”
On Jan 31, Singe will be joined by a pool of emerging and established music talent on the stage and behind the decks. The live acts include Daphne Charice and OJ Law. DJs are LapSap, Xes Xes, Naufal & I-sky and Tubby, alongside Bunga who will play a tribute set to the late David Bowie.
Blink, A.S.A’s co-curator and Zouk KL’s head of programme, says: “A Sunday Affair is a unique proposition as it is a music-focused event where foreign and local acts come together on one stage, along with the others from the creative community. But it’s is not just about entertainment, it’s about curating the best vendors for the flea market.”
William Singe has rapidly taken the game by storm, breaking out and rising from 100 to 2 million Facebook followers in a matter of months. With his massive growth, Will has become one the most talked about artists online, scoring a #1 on the US Spotify charts, racking in 200+ million video views, 20 million Spotify streams and earning praise from One Direction, alongside a long collective of other powerhouse artists. With his unique vocals and production, Will continues to build momentum kicking off a world tour through Australia, Asia, U.S, & Europe alongside releasing his anticipated first original project.
