Art Xtreme Media’s weekly Sweatbox at Elysium Bar & Terrace Kuala Lumpur goes on a marathon with their Long Player series featuring DJ Kuma this Saturday November 25.
Just back from appearances in Yangon’s Rumours and Zouk Singapore, you can expect more of his signature underground tech based and techno sounds that he is renowned for almost the last two decades.
Kuma is one of the few established DJs from Malaysia who plays across Asia and Europe. With those signature underground techno and techno based sounds, he's earned himself something of a name in the Asian underground house music community, taking the music to dance floors across Asia, including the likes of Embassy (Philippines), Sound Club (Thailand), Womb (Tokyo), and festivals such as the Full Moon party on the beach of Haadrin in Koh Pangan (Thailand), Epizode (Vietnam), regular Jungle Experience (Koh Phangan) appearances to add to appearances in Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam and Ibiza.
At home in Malaysia he’s cut a swathe through the underground since the late 1990s, from Genting Highlands to Sunway Lagoon to Jalan P. Ramlee’s Poppy Collection and Rumjungle over much of the noughties, to being co-founder along with Alex Martin of the decade crossing KL underground institution Quinte on Heritage Row during the first half of this decade, to now being resident at Le Noir KL and the Sunday Daydream Pool Party.
Also dabbling into techno productions, his two releases in the last year, Kamagra and the Acid Flux EP have created waves, and there’s more to come in the very near future.
