So come as you are, let’s get with the programme and let’s get Parallel for hours on end.

Born and bred in Stuttgart, brothers Ali and Basti Schwarz’s passion for Techno and Deep House flourished their initial experience as DJs and led up to the formation of Tiefschwarz in 1997. Fifteen years on, the duo has released high profile mixes for artistes such as The Rapture, Depeche Mode, Madonna, Booka Shade and Plastikman and even founded their own label, Souvenir, along the way. Not letting up on productions, Tiefschwarz commemorated their 10th year with the release of Chocolate, a collaborative album with Santé which features acts like Cassy, Seth Troxler and Dave Aju amongst others, cementing their reputation as an underground powerhouse.

Marrying the euphoria of Trance with pumping House beats, the Trouse Brothers represent the NOW sound of the FUTURE. Expect a visually arresting performance like no other as a new era of Trouse, as claimed by none other than the formidable Tiësto himself, beckons.

The ascent of Australian-born vocalist and songwriter Emma Hewitt began in 2007 when she hit the international dance scene as co-writer and vocalist on Chris Lake’s US Billboard # 1 (Hot Dance Airplay) smash hit ‘Carry Me Away’. Moving forth, she has lent her voice to studio productions from folks like Lange and Marcus Schossow & Reeves, sold-out solo performances worldwide, and has made special appearances alongside Trance legends, Cosmic Gate and Dash Berlin.

REGULAR NIGHTS

TGIW
Every Wednesday
Zouk Complex

20 years ago, before there was Mambo Jambo, there was TGIW; the game changing mid-week party that really gave Singaporeans a reason to stay out late on Wednesdays. Fast forward 20 years and we’ve come full circle as we mark the return of TGIW to the Zouk complex every Wednesday. First up, prepare to have your ears and eyes treated to some full-on friendly Phuture-style Hip Hop in the Zouk main room as Eclipse and Ghetto bring not just the BOUNCE sound (that’ll make you get physical on the dance floor) but the most on-point video mixing this side of the region. This is one act that’s sure to pop eyeballs and drop jaws simultaneously!

Prefer something a bit with a bit more spunk? Stick those fingers up at convention and sing along to the choicest Indie Electro cuts at ALT. with Adrian Wee and Hong in Velvet Underground-Dance because they are your friends and you’ll never be alone again! Back in Phuture, we have got a rumbling underground affair underway with Ming at Mix & Match. The frequencies go low and the bass goes up; all you junglists can expect Drum & Bass and UK Dubstep with a dash of Old-School Hip Hop thrown in for good measure.

More than just another cookie cutter midweek party that can be found everywhere else, TGIW is a reminder about what Wednesday night partying is all about; living in the moment and having FUN! Showcasing 5 unique clubbing experiences for the price of 1 entry fee (or free if you’re a lady!). Get your musical wanderlust taken care of by our resident DJs who will sort you out with first-class room servings of Pop, Hip Hop, Electro, Indie-Dance, Drum & Bass, UK Dubstep and even some eye-poppingly compelling video mixing as you go on a clubbing safari through the 5 different rooms that make up the Zouk complex! Bon Voyage!
