H-Artistry 2012 Party Rockin' at Kenanga Wholesale City KL

Back in June 16th, I attended the very first round of H-Artistry party at SQCC Penang. [Blog post here]
This time round, I was invited again for the second round of H-Artistry which happened at Kenanga Wholesale City (KWC) KL where more than 2,500 revellers party to the eclectic mix of sight, taste and sound with glasses of Hennessy V.S.O.P. raised up high!

It was pretty jam towards KL city that night but I managed to reach the party location earlier than the stated time which is 8.30pm and also I took a picture of the KWC building from the road side.

Entering the hall was actually quite difficult as we did not have any physical invitation and we had to mention the inviter's name over and over again in order for us to get in.

Event notice and the QR code for the Hennessy Malaysia FB page.
There's a H-Artistry party innovation was the My Hennessy mobile app, which can be downloaded onto all iOS and Android smartphones. The My Hennessy mobile app allows partygoers to receive the latest updates from Hennessy Malaysia as well as collect points, redeemable for exclusive invites and gifts. The app also enabled party-goers at the Hennessy Art of Mixing Zone to scan the video of their own Hennessy 360 Cam shot, upload it onto the Hennessy Malaysia Facebook page and automatically tag themselves; all through a simple QR code.

The Hennessy 360 Cam
Of the hundreds of party goers who were using the My Hennessy mobile app at the H-Artistry party, a very lucky Alex Kim was selected to go backstage and meet Angger Dimas. All Kim had to do was participate in the Hennessy Art of Mixing Zone and scan a QR code after snapping a shot at the Hennessy 360 Cam. 

Below are two video taken with the Hennessy 360 Cam:-




Pretty cool right!? :D

My attempt on mixing my own drink.
With the entire venue draped in classy hues of black and red, the all-new Hennessy Art of Mixing Zone stood out as a true highlight. With party goers arriving as early as 8pm buzzing with excitement, the Hennessy Art of Mixing Zone greeted them with various interactive activities – from themed games at the Hennessy React Tables, to learning how to mix their favourite Hennessy V.S.O.P. long drinks at the Hennessy Mixing Bars. 


B.A.T.E. (Brains and the Eye)
As party goers started pouring into the main party arena, energy levels began to surge in sync to the infectious beats channelled by electro and big room masterminds B.A.T.E. (Brains and the Eye). The atmosphere intensified in response to B.A.T.E.’s stellar administration of fist-pumping tracks, as revellers helped themselves to the signature Hennessy V.S.O.P. long drinks from the bars. 

Emcees of the night, Julie Woon and Nadia Heng
By 10.30pm, lights inside the arena dimmed and the roar from the crowd was deafening. Enter the gorgeous emcees of the night, Julie Woon and Nadia Heng, who bolstered an enthusiastic crowd for the upcoming performances. Next up on the decks were local and internationally renowned hardstyle champions Mr. Nasty & GuruGuru (also known as the Bass Agents). 

Mr. Nasty & GuruGuru
Spinning under their individual stage names with their trademark headgear, the crowd came to a point of near rapture when Joshua Desmond and Jeffery Wong, guitarists of local rock outfit Rosevelt stormed the stage, dropping the familiar guitar riff of Nirvana’s rock anthem Come As You Are. As if in response to the crowd’s deafening cheers for more, the electric guitars continued to scream through a medley of familiar rock tracks Seven Nation Army and Rock It, laced with edgy electro backbeats, intricately woven together by the bobbing duo Mr. Nasty & GuruGuru.  


Eva Simons! Take over control baby! :D
With a striking stage presence and tremendous vocal prowess, Eva Simons effortlessly worked the crowd into a crescendo with her internationally renowned dance anthem, Take Over Control. Eva Simons also performed her latest collaboration with will.i.am, This Is Love, a hit that has garnered more than 32million views on YouTube to date. 


Angger Dimas from Indonesia!

As the atmosphere of the night reached its peak, it was the perfect time for some hard-hitting EDM (electronic dance music) and Angger Dimas zealously took the stage with a welcoming roar from the crowd. The cult-status DJ from Jakarta spared no reprieve with his set, diving straight into a series of vibrant and massively addictive tracks. Having performed at various festivals and premium party events around the world, Angger Dimas was no stranger behind the decks as he continued to drop remixes of EDM heavyweights Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke much to the delight of the jumping crowd.


Adding on to the musical experience were the chic vibes of a trademark H-Artistry party enclave, resulted by a total transformation of Level 15 @ KWC KL into a premium party locale. Within the party arena, state-of-the-art LED lighting technology gave the stage a startling illusion of 3D depth, while a glittering view of the KL City Centre accompanied the partying revellers throughout the night.

The girls!!!
For the Epic Finale of the Global Art of Mixing Trilogy, remember this date: 3 November 2012. I enjoyed the night with the company, music and of course, Hennessy V.S.O.P! To view the rest of the pictures, it's in my Facebook page album here.
