DJ Ed Dix Kuala Lumpur

Ed Dix, the late night juggernaut at the forefront of KL’s fast growing underground scene. In amidst the titanic dark and underground movement lies a character who sticks out like a sore thumb with his uplifting and distinctive sound of Techno – Ed Dix. His only rule is to push the boundaries of conventional electronic music exploring new directions while never losing sight of his core passions – playing music and celebrating life. Techno with a rough, French and Belgium bent is his main preference, interspersed with 80s synth, enchanting grooves or timeless electro cuts.

He has always been a musician in love with and addicted to music where his raw passion for music started when he was 15 by forming a band as a drummer, drawing influence from Joy Division, Pink Floyd, David Bowie and Depeche Mode. Driven by an acute sense for timing and the love of timeless music, Ed Dix continues to dive deeper into electronic sounds. From there his love for DJing really took form, kick started his imminent DJ career, started making his mixtapes which were favoured in a trice by his peers and has developed an interest in mixing vinyl himself.

From experience playing in a range of settings, from small underground parties to big clubs and festivals, a natural path towards playing as a DJ became established & has been going from strength to strength over the past few years.

DJ Odd Kuala Lumpur

DJ Odd aka Oddicon: from the deepest of psytrance through to techno, Oddicon can be one Malaysia’s mysteries who has scoured the underground psytrance scenes, local, Asian, Europe and beyond.  With deep links to Vantara Vichitra Records as well as his own Altered Visions community.

Kubika at Bait Intermark Kuala Lumpur

Saturdays at Bait Intermark on Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur sees the Da Funkie Junkie curated Music is Love nights with Da Funkie Junkie and Kubika on resident music duties.

The music policy for the night, in terms of vibe and ambience, is to capture the spirit, essence and music integrity of legendary clubs and nights like “Paradise Garage”, “Body & Soul”, “The Loft”, “The Shelter” and “Cielo” in New York; “The Warehouse” and “Music Box” in Chicago, and more contemporary clubs like “Respect Is Burning” and “Secret” in Paris; the early days of “Ministry of Sound” and the funk and cheekiness of “Scaramanga” in London.

According to Da Funkie Junkie, aka Donovan Tho, the focus is to capture and innovate, but not duplicate.

Donovan Tho at Jungle Bird Bangsar Kuala Lumpur

The musical ethos is inspired by legendary DJs Larry Levan and David Mancuso and their modern incarnations, Dimitri from Paris, Joey Negro and Danny Krivit.

The early hours will provide customers with an opportunity to discover the “roots” of dance music i.e. soul, funk, jazz, disco and Afro-latin beats. The latter stages of the night will build towards current and classic deep soulful house, disco house and garage.

As Bait Intermark is a restaurant cum bar and not a full-fledged club, the music will be down-tempo to mid-tempo but uplifting, exuding positive energy. The music will be soulful and organic, classy and elegant.
