Gig Watch: The Best Gigs To Catch In 2015

2015 is starting to shape up pretty nicely for the gigging scene here in Singapore. With new up-and-coming promoters Moonbeats Asia and Feedback Asia throwing their hats into the ring – and riding alongside concert bigwigs Symmetry Entertainment and The Gathering – we can safely say that audience members here are very spoilt for choice.

We provide you a comprehensive list of concerts that you should catch in the following months:



When & Where: June 12, Kyo

This San Francisco-based producer has made waves for his R&B minimalism, swamped with the still, ambient sound of trap beats that has been made popular by this generation’s wave of producers. Fans of The xx, Slow Magic, and XXYYXX would enjoy his range of music.

Nosaj Thing


When & Where: June 6, Kyo

Many would be familiar with the YouTube-Chillwave era of music, where names such as Gold Panda, XXYYXX, and Clams Casino have become house staples. Nosaj Thing is no different, with the LA-based producer collaborating recently with hip-hop stalwarts such as Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, and Chance The Rapper. Expect a night filled with subliminal beats, and who knows, a remix from one of your favorite rappers?
