Flux Club KL launches to bring in a new era of ghetto luxe into Kuala Lumpur.
Flux Club KL is here! A mini club with a huge attitude and the dopest urban inspired decor in town, is now ready to bring and celebrate the best in urban music styles to KL’s most discerning clubbers.
Exactly one week after hip hop celebrated it’s 44th birthday (*see below), Flux Club KL opened its doors to the world with vigour to carry on and celebrate the huge movement that is hip hop.
High up in the loft of the legendary building that is 1, Jalan Kia Peng, itself a hallowed nightlife institution with decades of historic events and parties and clubs, a new club is born. When we say high up, we mean exactly one floor. Apart from that nothing else is an exaggeration.
Flux Club KL, is the second room of Fuze Club KL that was carved out of the space afforded by the roof of the legendary club building. The room, which had been ‘found’ within the huge complex was lovingly remade into a tribute to hip hop music and urban lifestyle.
This tiny 200 capacity space was conceived, designed and built by some of KL’s more respected nightlife operators and promoters. An early hours intimate and sexy lounge space that turns into a raucous 'hands in the air' hip hop joint later in the night; this club is a much needed breath of fresh air for the nightlife scene.
“We wanted to bring a new aesthetic into KL’s clubbing scene with Flux. This is why about 90% of the club from the seating to the tables, lighting, wall paintings and even our near viral toilet cubicles were designed from scratch, giving the club a ‘never been seen before’ type of vibe”, said Matthias Lim, owner and director of Flux Club KL
Open from Thursday to Saturday, Flux will feature some of KL’s most respected urban music deck-ticians as well as the hottest new names coming up. Balancing the hottest new sounds with the baddest old school beats, expect these guys and gals to bring the party with a capital P! The parties complemented by amazing cocktails and high end drinks on offer will soon be the talk of the town. The jaw dropping lighting system has already been one of the biggest draws of the club since its preview events.
Chris Lo, owner and director of Flux Club explains. “Instead of following a trend of moving heads and generic club lighting, we sourced for cutting edge pixel LEDs to be run by a state of the art Madrix lighting control system as the main focus of lighting in this club. This gives a completely fresh and exciting edge for Flux Club. One that isn’t seen in small intimate low slung rooms almost anywhere in Asia!”
“Many more additions will be added into the club in the next few months. Like all good clubs, there is a sense that as the crowds continue to come, they will notice a constant evolution of look and feel to keep things interesting,” added Matthias.
The club was also built with hosting private events in mind. Whether it is a private event of up to a capacity of 200 capacity or a small celebration with friends, the club has enough modular set-up to accommodate parties of any size in between. These are indeed exciting times!

On August 11, 1973, an 18-year-old, Jamaican-American DJ who went by the name of Kool Herc threw a back-to-school jam at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx, New York. During his set, he decided to do something different. Instead of playing the songs in full, he played only their instrumental sections, or “breaks” - sections where he noticed the crowd went wild. During these “breaks” his friend Coke La Rock hyped up the crowd with a microphone. And with that, Hip Hop was born.
