Once upon a time, in a land far away, we used to wait until the weekend to hear our favourite DJs spinning. Yeah, well those times have gone and in case you hadn’t noticed recently you can catch Singapore’s beat masters laying it down on the ones and twos pretty much any day of the week.
And to appreciate their musical genius, you no longer have to hit the clubs to open up your ears. Instead you can catch up with friends with your favourite sauce with their soundscape in the background as they’re making their way to you courtesy of our little red dot’s bars.
Monday: KPO with DJ NOMSTA
Start the week on a good note (literally) with DJ NOMSTA. A self confessed obsessive when it comes to digging up quality beats and cutting edge music, expect to hear an eclectic mix of jazzy and funk and soul-drenched sounds that will leave you feeling uplifted for the week ahead. KPO is at 1 Killiney Road, 239518. For more on DJ NOMSTA see here.
Tues: Erm we actually didn’t have anything to bring to the table on this one. So rather than offering you up a dud, we thought the reason for this Tuesday tumbleweed situation was owing it being pre-hump day.
Weds: Bar Kode deviant nights with DJ Surf a.k.a. thetoplessdj
Forget the fact you’re only half way through the week with deep house and electro beats being served up Ibiza style by way of Boracay island and the toplessdj. This is the stuff of crazy beach parties, coming at you in Little India. Bar Kode is at 66 Dunlop Street, 209394. For more on DJ Surf/thetoplessdj see here.
Thurs: Bar 83 with Kaye / Funk Bast*rd (Cosa Nostra).
If it’s deep, obscure and funky then you can bet that this quasi-electronic act will be spinning it as the duo mesh anything from house, afro, soul, boogie, hip hop, dub and beyond. Bar 83 is at 83 Club Street, 069451. For more on Cosa Nostra see here.
Fri: The bar at Caffe B with matteblacc featuring DJs DREM and JNR.
These guys are a personal mission to bring back feel-good tunage in a major way. Leave the week’s worries at the door as they whisk you away on a genius journey of soul inspired hip hop, R&B, neo soul, roots, vintage breaks, house and disco. The bar at Caffe B is at The Shoppes, Marina Bay Sands, 2 Bayfront Ave B1-15 & 01-83, 018972. For more on matteblacc see here.
