TGIF!: Your weekend guide (3-5 April 2015)

After the solemn weekend that just past us by, some of us might not feel like starting this one with a party from the get go, so if that’s the vibe, check out Bartok at the Victoria Concert Hall on Friday courtesy of the Philharmonic Orchestra where folk melodies and Hungarian rhythms will distract your senses.

Once that is done, carry on with the same fervour over at Blu Jaz café with Good Times as this monthly edition features a quality blend of old school grooves, funky breaks and all-round boogie-worthy material. 

If you feel like switching up to a higher tempo but retaining the lounge feel, then consider hitting up Zouk’s Wine Bar for Attagirl! Night where some of Singapore's best female DJ talents take over the decks.

If you’re of the creative persuasion/stock in this country, you’ll know everyone congregates at Singapore Island Culture Club with DJ Aldrin in this bi-monthly fixture hosted by Club Kyō. You can check out the playlist that transpired at the last fixture right here.

Over at Canvas where they regularly paint pretty distinctive musical landscapes, check out The Bronx, helmed that night by artistes like DJ Ko Flow, Shawn Livewire and Mr Boo.

Eric Volta at The Boiler Room

On Saturday, Club Kyō will be looking to make Saturday nights a Ritual for the masses starting with DJ Eric Volta’s appearance behind the decks. The native Londoner has amassed significant exposure globally.

That same day the folks at Potato Head Folk introduce you to DJ Eric ‘Dunks’ Duncan on their rooftop during the Sundown Circle Warm Up Party as he shows off his affinity with slow-mo disco, funk, techno and house. If you must do your research in order to find an excuse to head there just know that he is one half of legendary DJ/production duo called ‘Rub n Tug’ which first gained traction back in the mid 90’s, in New York City.

The community atmosphere begs to carry over on Sunday at the CAD Block Party which is happening at the quaint outdoor space over at Bali Lane. There will be eight different beers on tap, some of which are from renowned breweries like Stone, Beaverton and Hitachino Nest. The experience will be endorsed by Mugic Soundsystem, which is made up of DJs Kentaro, Ulysses and Dang.

Over at W Singapore Sentosa Cove, is where Wet Reloaded: An Endless Summer will be taking off with DJs Oliver Osborne (UK), Kelly Kellam (W Maldives) and Seng Wei (SG) providing the beats to accompany the tan-seekers, beer-pongers and kiddult supersoakers. 

Rounding up the weekend back on a classical note are the peeps at SIFASwho are holding the Festival of Indian Classical Music and Dance at the Esplanade Concert Hall in conjunction with SG50. Legends in their own country, Rajan and Sajan Misra have performed exclusively all over the world so far and wish to engage the multi-racial audience here in Singapore.
