Miss ULTRA? Catch International DJ Adam Sky ‘SMASH’ The Decks At Altimate From This Sat

Adam Sky

If you’re a regular patron of Singapore’s clubbing scene, chances are that you’ve heard of the name Adam Sky.

Apart from being a regular headliner at Wave House Sentosa’s Atlantis Beach Parties, the Australian DJ-slash-producer performed at this year’s instalment of the Ultra Music Festival, and his beats have made regular appearances on the Beatport Top 100 charts as well.

Now, after two straight years of touring a multitude of countries that include Thailand, China and Russia, Sky has decided to return to our shores to perform on a more permanent basis.

Get High, Literally

Using the 61st storey club Altimate as his base of operations, Sky will be performing once a month in an event he’s calling SMASH.

“I’ve been touring the world, but honestly speaking I’ve been keen to find my way back to Singapore for some time now” the DJ said. “I want to engineer a night that will allow all true clubbers and music lovers to unite, and create a true clubbing experience.”

So how exactly is SMASH different from any other clubbing night in Singapore?

Well, Sky aims to bring festival vibes to a club setting, giving patrons with the adrenaline they experience at festivals without the overpowering bass that you’d typically find in an outdoor arena. Considering his performance history, we’re inclined to think that he’s the right man for the job.

The first instalment of SMASH will take place this Saturday, the 3rd of November, and guests can enter under Adam Sky’s guest list before 12am. Ladies will also be given a free drink coupon if they arrive under the Guestlist before 11pm, and the age requirement stands at 18 and 21 for ladies and men respectively.

ZoukOut still isn’t for a month, so why not scratch that dance festival itch early?

For appetisers, the ambassadors had the signature pan seared duck foie gras.


Next up was the Herb-Crusted Codfish served on a bed of mash potatoes, asparagus, scallops and balsamic reduction sauce – a dish that was crunchy on the surface, while tender underneath.


Other must tries are the Australian Wagyu ribeye with sweet potato fries, and mango strudel that has actual popping candy in it.


To complete our meal was an exclusive range of teas, brewed pot by pot on the spot with the finest tea leaves and herbs. (Psst! They even have alcoholic ones!)

Whether or not you got the chance to go to Ultra Singapore, it’s hard to miss the hype that took over all our social media platforms.

We sent a whole bunch of our ambassadors down to join in the fun at the hottest party this year!


Just like last year, the 2-day electronic dance music festival in Singapore was ultra wet, ultra muddy, and ultra amazing!


We partied the day and night away to music by headlining DJs, including Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, Dash Berlin, Steve Angello, Tiësto, and Don Diablo.


Other famous names include Dubfire, Martin Solveig, Nic Fanciulli, Sasha & John Digweed and Showtek.


Not to forgot our local acts on the Live stage: homeboy ShiGGa Shay, DJ Duo Rave Republic, and singer-songwriter Jasmine Sokko.


With stunning lights, visuals, sound and special effects, it was easy to stay upbeat and pumped even through the rain.


You know a party is ultra good when it’s hard to go for one set and not have #FOMO from passing up on the others; that’s exactly how we felt about Ultra Singapore’s crazy line-up this year!

Ultra SG 2017 Was Lit – Offstage, We Got Up Close And Personal With Myrne, Rave Republic, And Sam Rui

For the party people, last weekend was THE long-awaited Ultra Music Festival Singapore 2017. Like last year, the 2-day electronic dance music festival in Singapore was ultra wet, ultra muddy, and ultra amazing!

EDM heavyweights Hardwell and Tiesto drew the largest crowd at the Main stage on Saturday, 10th June. And while the drizzle that started off in the evening turned into a heavy downpour, it didn’t stop us from partying hard with Dash Berlin. It was a fantastic experience and a god-sent respite from the scorching heat.

At the Live stage, we caught Indonesian rapper Rich Chigga, and fellow home-grown talents DJ-producer Myrne, and singer-songwriter Sam Rui. Sitting between the two stages is the Resistance stage, which featured iconic UK duo Sasha & John Digweed and American house DJ-producer Jonny Vicious.

We had a serious dilemma on Day 2, because the line-ups were crazy – in a good way. From Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, and Steve Angello headlining the Main stage, to Pendulum and KSHMR on Live stage at the other end, it’s hard to go for one set and not have #FOMO from passing up on the other big names.

Not forgetting local acts on the Live stage: home-boy ShiGGa Shay, DJ Duo Rave Republic, and singer-songwriter Jasmine Sokko.

While it didn’t rain on day 2, it was perfect weather for the party. Knife Party made a special appearance too – a big treat to the fans!

Of course there’s cake. #ultrasingapore #steveaoki #cakeme #umf #singapore #ultra

Also, we finally got to witness Aoki’s famous cake-throwing ability.

The lights and visuals were stunning. So were the sound and special effects. The free stuff like neon face and body paint, foil tattoos, photo print-outs, and goodie bags from several sponsor booths around the festival grounds added to the fun too (because we love free stuff).

As for food, drinks, and merchandise, payments had to be made via the RFID (radio frequency identification) tags on our wrist-tags. We had to top up our wrist tags via cash or credit card before buying anything – an upgrade from last year and it definitely made the ordering and collection process much easier and faster.

Another thing they ramped up this year was security. In wake of the rising terrorist-related attacks at major concerts and festivals, entrance bag checks were extremely thorough and we even got pat-downs. Kudos to the organisers and security for ensuring our safety!

We sent our DiscoverSG ambassadors down too, and this video wraps up the amazing time we had there.

We also scored the chance to chat with three home-grown artistes, Myrne, Rave Republic, and Sam Rui to get to know them a little better!


Why “Myrne”?

Avicii was taken. I tried a few other names like Tiesto and Hardwell, but it didn’t really work out.

I was a big fan of Talking Heads. The front man David Byrne wrote a book “How Music Works”, and it was a very influential book. It really affected how I saw the music industry and my career. So I ‘stole’ his name and put in the ‘M’ from my name. It was Byrne, now it’s Myrne.

If you were not producing music, what would you be doing now?

I love writing and journalism reporting, and I wanted to be a war journalist. Then I realised the high-risk environments they work in, so I decided I’d do something a bit more stable.

But otherwise, if I wasn’t into music, I’d probably do something total opposite. Probably a professor at a school, or just surround myself with learning and writing opportunities.

If you could pick out just one track of yours that represents who you are as a DJ-Producer, what would it be?

It’ll be Tiger Blood. It really represents what I am interested in when making music – collaboration. I did the track with my friend Graves, who is based in Hawaii.

The elements in the track are very symbolic of how I approach music. It’s a bit more melodic, very high energy, and a lot of old school chords and influences from R&B and old hip hop. I think that’s the best interpretation of my kind of music.

What about now? Who are some of your favourite artistes?

I’m really inspired by everything local. By people who grew up the same way I did, under the same circumstances, and yet they’ve gone on to do really interesting things.

Local artistes like Jasmine Sokko, who’s a good friend of mine and came from the same JC as me. She’s been doing electronic music and from Singapore as well so it’s really inspiring.

Sam Rui – her voice is really great. Also, Gentle Bones.

Any tips for aspiring DJs?

Don’t drop out of school.

To get good at anything, you have to spend a lot of time on it. If you’re going to be out at a cybercafé or a club all night, you’re not going to get good at DJing or producing music. You have to make some very significant lifestyle changes to improve your craft.

Rave Republic

How different is it to DJ together compared to doing it solo?

It’s completely different. We’re more reserved alone and we don’t go on the mic as much. We also have our own tracks, so we surprise each other quite a lot with tracks that we drop. Through that, we build up each other up. Whereas when we play alone, we tend to just play what we’re used to.

We complement each other and together, we have so much energy.

Working together, were there disagreements that both of you had to work out?

Surprisingly, we’ve never had an argument for the 3 years we’ve been working together. We usually see eye to eye and never really had big differences. We’re both really chill too, so we’re good.

Why “Rave Republic”?

We wanted to create a community. Like a republic, or nation kind of thing. And Rave Republic just came to us.

We asked a few people and we had a few names like Rave-olution and Rave Nation, but Rave Republic just stuck.

Any crazy fan girl stories?

A girl broke into our house once and played our PlayStation. It was very strange.

The girl walked into our Swedish house-mate’s room where he was sleeping with his girlfriend, and that girl just went: “Shhh, shhh, I’m gonna use your bathroom. Shhhh.”She was really drunk, and so was our house-mate. So the next morning, he was like: did I imagine all that?

Apparently she had broken in to use our bathroom, played our PlayStation, and left. It was very confusing and weird for all of us.

What are your future plans for Rave Republic?

We’ve only been playing in Asia this past 2 or 3 years. The next will definitely be global expansion. It is one of our biggest goals to put Asia in the global map.

If you think about Asia-based artistes, there’s pretty much no one who’s hit it big overseas. And I know we’re ang moh, but we’re proud to call ourselves Singaporeans. We’ve lived here for 7 and 9 years. We grew our act here and it is our home. We really want to take the sound and our inspiration that comes from living in Singapore and Asia, and export it world-wide. Hopefully, Rave Republic can be that act!

We’ve going to announce some big news that will help with our goal of global expansion soon!

Sam Rui

Credit: Sam Rui

Why “Sam Rui”?

My stage name kind of happened by accident.

When I was creating my Youtube channel back then, I typed my first name (Samantha) into the name box, and “Wong Sze Rui” into the surname box like an idiot. Youtube took the “Rui” as my last name, so “Samantha Rui” showed up. I liked the sound of it, and it wasn’t so far off from my actual name, so it just stuck. I cut it to Sam since everyone calls me Sam anyway.

If you were not producing music, what would you be doing now?

I don’t actually produce, I think there’s this common misconception that I produce my music since it’s electronic, but my producer is GROSSE. I write the music and lyrics, he does the actual production. I feel the need to clarify that because I’ve been asked this a couple times and I can’t take credit for something I didn’t do.

If I weren’t making or writing music, I’d be in university studying psychology. Before music, I really wanted to pursue clinical psychology and eventually take over my mom’s private practice – she’s a counsellour and linguistic therapist. I was straddling school and music but felt like I was doing both at a 50% capacity, so I decided to focus on music at this point. However, I still plan to finish my degree and pursue that.

How would you describe your music style? What would be the one track of yours that really represents who you are?

My sound changes between songs on the album, so I’d loosely say my music is alternative-electronic R&B. The one thing that ties the whole album together is what I like to think as “soul”. Again I say this loosely. I don’t mean “soul” as in a powerhouse vocal, or any sort of jazz influence.

It’s the honesty I put into my music – the way I write, the way I sing and even the way we craft the tone of the beat and lay down the vocal. For example in my album, the aim was to capture whatever I was feeling at the time – heartbreak, sadness, loneliness, clarity – and fit them into songs, like time capsules.

The one track I feel captures this best is the outro of the album – 20,000. It means a lot to me because I wrote this as sort of a summary, a letter to myself.

Outside of Ultra, where else can we catch you perform?

I’ve got a couple shows coming up later this year.

I also live stream on Instagram every once in a while, where I basically see how many songs I can play to the 1 jazz chord progression I know. If you request a song in the chat there that I know, I’ll probably sing it. Like a fun DIY acoustic show.

What are your future plans for Sam Rui?

For now it’s just putting this album out and seeing my baby finally come to life. I’ve been sitting on it so long and it’s my first big project. After it’s out I hope to do some local and regional shows.

I’d want to get back to writing and I really want to collaborate with other local and regional artists. Performing is one thing but creating the music is a whole other ball game and I haven’t done that in a while, so hopefully I get the chance to again in the tail end of this year.


We thank Myrne, Rave Republic, and Sam Rui for their time!

We Are Days Away From Ultra Singapore – These Are The Acts S’poreans Are Hyped To See

The DBS Marina Regatta has come and gone. We drank, lazed around, soaked up the sun, and also managed to hit up the Pre-Ultra Party!

A two-day teaser of what’s to come at the upcoming Ultra Singapore, the party was nothing short of heart-pumping action with the crowd raising their hands, dancing the night away to the sounds of emerging DJs Dubvision, Crossnaders, Raiden, Jade Rasif, Moe, and Myrne.

An Ultra Good Time

[caption id="attachment_27048" align="aligncenter" width="2048"] DBS Marina Regatta 2017 Pre-Ultra Party[/caption]

Despite a slow start, the party really got started on the second night, with DJ Dubvision helming the decks, hyping the crowd and blasting some familiar tunes, turning the party up to eleven.

Drinks were on hand, the lights in the Play Dome added to the electric atmosphere, and everyone had a blast! Even the DJs joined the crowd, dancing with us once they were finished with their sets. Some very lucky folks got to rub shoulders (literally) with some of these rising names in EDM.

[caption id="attachment_27049" align="aligncenter" width="2048"] DBS Marina Regatta 2017 Pre-Ultra Party[/caption]

Limited edition merchandise, including wristbands and caps were also given out, so party-goers could take home a piece of the event as a souvenir!

It’s an indescribable feeling and I’m looking forward to feeling that again at this year’s festival. In terms of DJs, I’m super hyped for Tiësto.” – Jerome

Nothing To Do In Tiny S’pore? This Bank Is Making It Its Mission To Bring More Life Here

Singapore is a lot of great things: a safe country, a technologically advanced nation, a country with THE best food in the world—to us Singaporeans, at least. But a place with plenty of fun, exciting things going on all the time, well… That’s debatable.

A Livelier Local Scene

That being said, things here have come a LONG way over the last couple of years.

One of the key parties to thank for breathing this fresh life into the local scene is—you won’t guess it—DBS bank.

The bank has made it its mission to bring new, unique and exciting experiences to our little red dot, and specifically to the Marina Bay area.

The DBS Marina Regatta will be returning this year from 1-4 June. Last year, they brought into Singapore South-east Asia’s tallest inflatable water slide—a massive structure that stood at over five storeys tall!

Think that can’t be topped? This year’s highlights are even more amazing!

Dubbed “Singapore’s Biggest Bayfest”, the sixth edition of DBS Marina Regatta will see The Bay receiving a tremendous makeover, transforming into Singapore’s only urban beach.

Come June this year, Bali’s famed Potato Head beach club will bring their beloved Coconut Bar to Singapore for the first time, and with it, their signature coconut cocktails and beers so you can beat the Singapore heat! You can even lounge on hammocks with an icy cold bottle of booze in hand!

To cool off even more, you can challenge yourself—and your friends!—to an epic inflatable water obstacle course! Featuring 9 obstacles of varying difficulties, see if you have what it takes to get from point A to point B.

This coming August, the Singapore Coffee Festival will be back again and we hear DBS will have a hand in it!

Happening at Marina Bay Cruise Centre, this year’s coffee festival experience will come with a gorgeous waterfront view. While the finer details of the event have not yet been ironed out, we’re guessing (and hoping!) some of our favourite coffee vendors will be there, roasting up a delicious storm.

Watch this space as we will be updating this story as more information comes in!

When: 3 – 6 August 2017

Home Is Where The Fun Is

Indeed, Singapore has come such a huge way in such a short time, and we’re definitely not complaining!

From importing overseas concepts like Artbox so we can enjoy them right in our backyards to creating platforms enterprising Singaporeans can use to showcase their wares, DBS has brought a tremendous breath of life into our country.

We can only hope many others will follow suit, bringing so much more fun and life to our home!

We saved the best the last! Mryne also known as Manfred Lim is a local born producer who in 2015 got signed with music producer Diplo. Like most aspiring EDM DJs he started mixing tracks at home with only a keyboard, an audio software and a Windows laptop. 4 years later and he’s now playing beside the biggest EDM producers. He brands himself as indie electronica, a sleek combination of future bass, R&B and trap. If you’re looking to support a local talent with talent to boot, watch out for Mryne!

Catch him if you like: Indie Electronica
When/Where: Saturday, Live Stage


Let’s be honest most of us are heading to Ultra to catch the big names, but if you’re looking out for some fresh names with talent. Look out for these guys and their sets, because they’re going to be headlining shows in the future!
