As the blinding hangovers of the previous night’s escapades at the 4 hour Lapsap set or sake soaked Deer Society death began to dawn, out came the Sunday sun, and with it another day to party. But you can’t get KL club kids out of bed before sundown for just anything. The third instalment of the Lapsap Private Pool Party was set to launch at 4pm on Saturday 15 January, and promised free flow beer, beats, and with it, an opportunity to get wasted, splash about and frolic in the sunshine amongst similar minded folk. For those lucky enough to be selected in the random draw of guestlist spots, who could refuse?
As is tradition the first pool party of the year presented a fresh collective of carefully chosen DJs, along with a new theme, wear LOUD colours. Most of the party-goers knew to expect a big night, but with the buildup of energy as the lineup progressed, and the playful games and spontaneous water fights, it seemed unanimous that it could be the best pool party to date.
As people started arriving and the beer started flowing, the two boys known as B.A.T.E (Brain & The Eye) kicked off the party playing fun tunes and alternative hits. Next Tubby from BudCulture took to the decks and shook the vibe by dropping some fresh dark minimal dubstep, which got the majority of attendees happily bouncing. Tubby was followed by Earn Chen (Surrender) vs Wayne Lee (Zouk Sg) (ex-JUICE Singapore editor, by the way) who came in playing a mash up set of sorts. Eminent for being the energy injection types, the duo played a range of genres centred around big room hits and indie dance. Finally LAPSAP (DJs Blink and Xu) + Goldfish rocked the party in their signature crazy style, and played a winning set of the magnitude that only the seasoned purveyors of such a reputably wild event could. Thanks Lapsap!
Now, who’s ready for round 4?
