It has been a while since our last update and with August, come the highly anticipated Merdeka Eve celebrations.
Last year, we had Mizz Nina strutting her hit single, What You Waiting For. This year, we have Goldfish and Blink, controversial rapper Namewee and Playboy bunny, Felixia Yeap.
Malaysian or not, Merdeka Eve has become one of the events of the year. Malaysia has no doubt, produced some of Asia's strongest musicians and disc jockeys. From Mizz Nina releasing a new track with Flo Rida to Pop Shuvit taking over Japan's alternative world, the names Goldfish and Blink are synonymous with Asia's nightlife scene.
Goldfish and Blink (also part of LAPSAP) helms Malaysia's number one night, Loud @ Zouk. The both of them have gone to support big name DJs like Afrojack, Chuckie, 2ManyDJs, Hardwell, Boys Noize, Crookers and Laidback Luke.
Besides the usual, they are in the midst of producing their debut album with two singles already released.
The first single, In The House already getting air time in Malaysia's FM radio. Remixes also include Kid Kaio (played by Laidback Luke), Gianni Marino and Japan's famed Dex Pistols.
For their second single, G & B teams up with famed Malaysian rocker Noh Salleh of Hujan. First of its kind - dubstep with Malay vocals and we love it!
Besides their local album, they already have their techno track, Putih Putih released on Chuckie's Dirty Dutch label and some big things to come!
Nonetheless, we would like to invite you to come together and celebrate the independence of Malaysia and, the fact that music plays a big part in uniting races and nationalities.
We leave you with a bonus live set recording of Goldfish's set at Cravesense 2011
