Hold up! Remi Kabaka, the famed Gorillaz Sound System DJ and voice actor behind virtual band member Russel Hobbs, will be coming to Singapore on September 17th!
Kabaka, also known for his drumming work with bands like the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and John Martyn, will be performing a DJ set under the Gorillaz Sound System moniker at Zouk. Gorillaz Fans can expect a night filled with hits such as “Feel Good Inc.”, “Clint Eastwood”, “Dare”, and “Dirty Harry”, as well as famed visuals of the band.
Although we won’t expect real-life Gorillaz and Blur frontman Damon Albarn to be coming down, revellers can settle for a state-of-the-art visual display of virtual band members 2D (vocals), Murdoc Niccals (Bass), Noodle (Guitars) and Russel Hobbs (Drums).
Gorillaz was formed in 1998 by frontman Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett, and have gone on to win a Grammy, a NME award, and three Q awards. The band released their last album, The Fall, in 2011.
