---- BREAKBOT & IRFANE ----
After the Baby I’m Yours EP and a few other similar projects, Breakbot released his debut album in 2012 on Ed Banger. By Your Side, a sun-filled soundtrack with cheeky writing, where the bass line and the guitar answered each other in a rhythmic lovefest.
Together, Breakbot and Irfane have presented By Your Side in all the big cities of the world on a tour that has lasted almost two years. This long meandering finally gave the two friends the idea to create a duo.
In 2016, the new Breakbot version “one plus one” will released a second album, Still Waters, a new assortment of southern sunrays, with swinging images of dancefloors filled with guys in flowing trousers and bare-shouldered young girls. Unlike the previous album, this one is more of a matrix with intricate workmanship, carved out with the help of old analogue machines rather than softwares. Thirteen bouncy acts with Stevie Wonder and the Motown crowd in the background, spouts of funk and disco on a well-trodden dancefloor.
July, 2018 saw Breakbot and Ruckazoid release stunning visuals for their track ‘Another You’. Both artists merged to create Ruckazoid, a cosmic pimp, who distributes his love to humans by taking them across the galaxy on the planet love. Like so much else in his music career, the video is a nod to Breakbot’s eye for graphic design and animation, and his personal experience as a computer graphics student.
--- AXEL GROOVE ---
A self- professed late bloomer, Axel Groove found his inspiration following 7 years in the wilderness, also known as the concrete jungles of Australia. The underground music scene in KL reignited his long lost passion to educate the masses with the sexy sounds that is house music.
He has played along international luminaries such as Jamie Jones (UK), Hot Since 82 (UK), Eats Everything (UK), Osunlade (USA), M.A.N.D.Y (DE), Sonny Fodera (AUS), Shiba San (Fra), Yuksek (Fra), Hercules and the Love Affair (US), Wankelmut (DE), Africa Hitech (UK), What So Not (Aus), Haze (UK), Vibe Lime (USA), Ben Souled Tidy (UK) and more. His passion and eclectic taste has also seen him program music for The Big Group venues such as Tate, Beast, Page 2 and Hit & Mrs.
Taking a wide range of inspiration from the likes of Kerri Chandler all the way to Jamie Jones; Axel Groove incorporates a sexy blend of Disco, House and Deep Tech vibes to feed the soul.
--- PUBLIC SCHOOL ---
Public School are purveyors of good vibes and a music collective based in Kuala Lumpur. We aim to diminish barriers in music by making it accessible to all walks of life. Good music should be made available to everyone, everywhere.
Made up of selectors with diverse styles, the collective introduces a wide range of music through their DJ sets from organic grooves of Arabic disco and Southeast Asian funk, to the coldest wave and syncopated left-field techno.
Public School also manages several music initiatives, those of note include a music-focused zine and running an intimate venue for musicians, DJs, and producers to experiment.
