This Merdeka evening (31 August) will be filled with special moments on this celebratory day. The Sweatbox brings on Freedom special at the Le Noir KL Club Lounge in collaboration with nodrummer Agency and with it- an equally special duo Zendid (Yoyaku) joining The Sweatbox for the very first time and celebrating not just Malaysia's Independence but also the freedom of expression in dance music that they aim to portray this Saturday night.
Originating from Toulouse, Southern France, productions from the young French duo have quickly become something of a staple in the record bags of many of the leading microhouse DJs, including Zip, Sonja Moonear and Margaret Dygas. Type "Zendid," their chosen collaborative alias, into YouTube and you'll have little difficulty in finding videos of Rhadoo, Thomas Melchior and Raresh playing out their tracks, to name just a few more big-name supporters. It is perhaps the latter of these three who has become one of the duo's biggest advocates, a relationship that has blossomed after he was impressed when he received their "OMW" track in 2014.
Having started the project in 2011 after being introduced by a mutual friend, the duo chose not to release any music until December 2014, a single track on a various artist compilation for Park and Ride Records. Time in the interim was spent DJing, all the while fine-tuning their studio techniques, tweaking and testing them until they could produce something with which they felt a degree of satisfaction.
Support for the night will be provided by residents Obadius, OtherKind with Alam.
