The “new” Wednesday night routine ? started well over a month ago now. Set on every Wednesday at The Iron Fairies KL – Butterfly Room, it’s designed for music lovers, DJs, musicians, promoters, nightlife people, artistes, aspiring music folks, ladies – who get free drinks all night, night owls and everyone who wants a quality night out every Wednesday. Brought to you by Biscuit of Art Xtreme Media and the Iron Fairies KL team, this week, it’s time for Jeff Jefferson, Leonard Sinclair and Alan Tandy to play out your Wednesday night.
Jeff Jefferson’s career began in the early 90s all the way back in Birmingham, UK, and quickly established himself as a key DJ on the UK house scene playing legendary clubs such as SLAG, Wobble and most notably Miss Moneypennys. It was this heavyweight of international glamorous clubbing that really took notice of Jeff Jefferson’s talent and made him a fixture on all their key events around Europe.
Jeff played all the major events for Miss Moneypenny’s in Europe, Ibiza, Columbia, Dubai, Russia, Ayia Nappa, Turkey as well as all the major UK events in Manchester, Birmingham, London, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Ireland as well the twice-yearly industry showpiece Chuff Chuff.
Moving to Malaysia in 2014, he has, until recently been Music Director for Marini’s on 57, during which he’s overseen the It’s All About House series of events and played alongside many a DJ legend visiting and playing at the Rooftop bar including Marshall Jefferson, Simon Mills, Jose Padilla, Felix Da Housecat, Rob Roar, Ken Fan, Mark Robinson, the Mambo Brothers, David Morales, Roger Sanchez and more, as well as lend a hand in the production of all three of the bars’ special releases of the Sunset Hours compilation releases.
Originally hailing from the Indonesian town of Goranto, on the Northern coast of the island of Sulawesi, Alan Tand is a forward thinking DJ with the desire to learn and try new stuff; playing dance music genres spanning deep and tech house and techno.
Alan Tand started DJing in 2006 in his home town. He spent the next seven years being a prominent DJ in his birth place, before he was trusted with a residency at Quality Hotel – Gorontalo I in 2013. Along the way, he also won several DJ competitions, which pushed him to step up his game and make a move to be a DJ in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta.
Before holding any residency in the capital, he has seen playing as a guest DJ in numerous clubs in Jakarta such as Stadium, Prive, Illigals, Exodus, 999, Nu-China and 2nd Floor.
After about a year expanding his wings in Jakarta, he gained new residencies under his belt at clubs such as California Kemang, Jakarta, Burgundy – Grand Hyatt Hotel, Jakarta, X2 (Ego), before he made a second major move to Kuala Lumpur to join Jiro KL as a (continuing) founding resident and music head honcho when the club opened its doors in late 2016.
Since then, Alan Tand has had the chance to open and play alongside international DJs visiting KL such as Abel Ramos, Martin Eyerer, Eagles & Butterflies, Tiga, Darin Epsilon, Adana Twins, Chymera, Heiko Laux, Culoe De Song, David Mayer, Nuno Dos Santos, Mathias Schober, Heynah, Till Von Sein, Oliver Giacomotto, Robert Babicz and more.
