Saturdays at Bait Intermark on Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur will see the return of the curated Music is Love nights after a hiatus of some six months.
Beginning NOVEMBER 11, joining the veteran Malaysian house pioneer Da Funkie Junkie on resident duties will be .
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.
The musical ethos is inspired by legendary DJs Larry Levan and David Mancuso and their modern incarnations, Dimitri from Paris (our dear friend), 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.
