Otherkind's 13th edition of "How Deep?" features two of KL's coolest tastemakers: Rob G and XU for The Sweatbox at Ren (Kyo KL) this Friday 12 October.
2018 has seen Rob G already play at Sweatbox (Elysium), Daydream Island festival Langkawi, Daydream afterparty, Le Noir rooftop, Como, Pisco and of course his very own Privi where regular live streams can be found from local and international underground stars.
Rob G has been involved in the scene for over 20 years. First, growing up in Adelaide where the unusual combination of live bands and hardcore dance music played a large roll in his formative years before moving to Sydney where house music and tech house dominated his experiences. Rob G has an energetic up lifting edge with his deep driving, techno and tech House brand of music, he brings an energy and excitement into his live performances.
His Remixes and original tracks are a frequent part of his sets and we may see his first official release in Dec 2018.
His mission of “amazing things, with amazing people” rings true in everything he does; nothing more so than when it comes to music and DJing with the Connected crew of Niall F, Anthony J, Dr G and the people they play with.
The second guest is none other than XU. A man of many talents, XU is one of the reasons why Kuala Lumpur dance crowd still shakes it after 15 years. It was Xu whose music the mature generation cut their teeth into more than a decade ago and his sets at Zouk under the Lapsap moniker with Blink and as a member of the legendary indie electro collective Twilight Action Girl crew aka TAG with Bunga, Ribut 10:49 and Chaseylain have gathered the hordes of music lovers for years. Nowadays you can find XU throwing parties under his brand FWD and continuing to pioneer the raw, indelible techno sounds that reminisce of summer raves, crowded clubs and energetic parties.
Otherkind hosts How Deep? And joining all of them is Sweatbox co-resident Obadius, whose latest release on the Amsterdam-based Symmetrica Records has garnered yet more acclaim from legendary DJs and dancefloors far and wide.
Catch them this Friday, at The Sweatbox and let's find out how deep can they dig
