This weekend consists of a couple of creative conversations, namely Jagat’s director and producer regarding its 10-year long production and a Czech graphic designer speaking on visualising music. Speaking of music, catch soon-to-be-famous-rockstar Fikri Fadzil aka Bayangan performing alongside Euseng Seto and Kent Lee, Fadhil and Meaghan, and Simfoni Ketiak Berachun at Live Fact, then celebrate Indiego & Co.’s second anniversary with RAC on Saturday night. If you’re not one to sleep entirely on Sunday after going to bed when the sun rises, spend Sunday evening with Reddi Rocket, The Bat Cave, Kyoto Protocol, Youth Portal, and many others during THISCOVER Weekend at TREC. We’re not psychics, but we know these parties aren’t ones anyone would want to miss.

Live Fact Pres. Bayangan, Fadhil & Meaghan, Euseng Seto & Kent Lee, Simfoni Ketiak Berachun


After debuting at PAT.PEND #1, Fikri Fadzil aka Bayangan will play his second show at Live Fact, along with ambient producer Euseng Seto and bassist Kent Lee, leftfield, disconcerting performance by Simfoni Ketiak Berachun, and folk duo Fadhil & Meaghan. It’s a disparate array of genres, so come through to have a listen of what the local music scene has to offer.

The Creative Process: The Making of Jagat


In between the torrent of cringe-worthy Malaysian films (i.e. Cicak Man, Pisau Cukur), are gems such as Mukhsin, Bunohan, and Jagat. The latter, criminally underseen, explores the trying times Malaysian Indians endured during the post-estate era. It received numerous praises for its storyline, historical context, direction, and acting — it garnered enough attention for it to be screened in cinemas for eight weeks, which was a feat considering the fact that its theatre run coincided with Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ as well. If you were one of the lucky ones who got to watch the film, come through for this talk on the creative process of the movie, of which director Shanjhey Kumar Perumal and producer Sivanantham Perianan will discuss the obstacles they faced during filming and the 10-year-long production time it took to make the film.

Indiego & Co. 2nd Anniversary Pres. RAC (US)


For their first anniversary, Indiego and Co. brought down Baz Fratelli of The Fratellis, so there were lots of indie rock blaring through dearly departed ol’ faithful Frangipani. Since then, the men have migrated over to the new Zouk and in a blink of eye, it’s already time to celebrate their second anniversary. This time around, they’ll be bringing down producer and remixer RAC, whose stack of popular remixes and original singles befits the current musical milieu.

Following two editions of A Sunday Affair that was curated by LapSap, comes another event called THISCOVER Weekend, this time organised and curated by another one of Zouk’s residents – Indiego and Co.. The event is touted to be similar to Like A Version – the popular segment on the Australian radio station Triple J – where the invited performers will perform a few covers each. Those slated to perform are the rock band you’d bring to meet your parents, Kyoto Protocol, dream pop band Youth Portal, sombre sibling duo Juno and Hanna, hip hop crew The Bat Cave, Akhyla DJ-producer Reddi Rocket, and DJs Laydeh and Kubika. Aside from the music, there will be retail and food vendors to complete the flea market vibes that we’ve come to associate TREC KL’s Sunday events with. Even more, recent JUICE featured designers and artists – Sherwan Rozan, Brindha Kumar, Raksasa Print, and Sharina Shahrin – will be selling their respective works as well as hold conversations with interested attendees. Then, photog collective .IMG (Rizki Maulana, Razlan Yusof and Alvin Lau) is set for a mini pop-up exhibition where a few choice vendors will sell photography-related products.

Richard and Adeline of BFM’s That Time of Night host.
