M’sian DJ rEmPiT g0dDe$$ Will be Joining Deb Never, Thuy & More at This Women-Led Music Festival in SG!
Starting off with just making deconstructed covers of pop music, Victoria Yam a.k.a rEmPiT g0dDe$$ has come a long way since 2017. While she has been active in our underground scene, the Malaysian DJ made the country proud by representing us at Maho Rasop Festival in Bangkok under Boiler Room, last November.
She was the only Malaysian on stage alongside 10 other international acts! To help you grasp how major that is – Boiler Room is THE platform for underground DJs from around the world and has featured prominent artists like Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Kaytranada and more.
It’s only been going up for rEmPiT g0dDe$$ as she will soon be joining the stage alongside Asian-American musicians Deb Never, thuy, Lyn Lapid and other amazing artists at the women-led music festival The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions(ABSC).
Organised by 24Owls, the festival’s second instalment is coming back bigger and better at the Pasir Panjang Power Station in Singapore starting from 21 to 25 February.
