The H-Artistry Trilogy of parties arrived at a sensational culmination on 3rd November 2012 (Saturday) at the Malaysia International Exhibition and Convention Centre, marking the end of 2012’s The Global Art of Mixing Trilogy.
Kicking off the night was the Hennessy Art of Mixing Zone – a regular affair at all H-Artistry events where party goers soaked up the classy atmosphere with glasses of signature Hennessy V.S.O.P. long drinks (Hennessy Apple, Hennessy Berry, Hennessy Ginger, Hennessy Soda) in hand.
Enter the gorgeous hosts of the night, Julie Woon and Sarah Lian, who warmed up the crowd with banter and pleasantries, setting the tone for a great night ahead. At the stroke of 10pm, the crowd quickly shifted into the party arena, and energy levels were pumping in sync with the crowd’s excitement.
Storming the stage to shrill screams of the female K-Pop fans in the crowd were Block B, who immediately broke into song and dance with their infectious track “Nilili Mambo”.
Live renditions of “No Joke” and “Nalina” followed, as Block B showcased their rap, vocals and dance prowess to put on a stellar demonstration of the quality and showmanship of K-Pop music.
As Block B bowed out, the next artist to take the stage was Alexandra Burke, who immediately stamped her vocal authority as the prima donna of the night. Among the highlights of Alexandra Burke’s performance were live renditions of “Heartbreak on Hold”, “Elephant”, and her hit track “Bad Boys”, featuring Flo Rida.
However, the crowd exploded in exhiliration when Alexandra Burke invited Block B up on stage for an exclusive H-Artistry collaboration. Cheers and screams coupled with blaring horns marked the introduction of Kanye West’s massive hit “All of the Lights” – version H-Artistry. The rendition was given a distinct edge, thanks to Alexandra Burke’s full, powerful vocals and Block B’s crisp rap delivery – another resounding East-meets-West collaboration to take place on the H-Artistry platform.
Right after the collaboration, K-Pop fans in the crowd were thrown yet another surprise by one of the hottest all-girl K-Pop groups to debut recently – EvoL.
H-Artistry’s surprise guest performers took the stage with enthusiastic cheers and put on a sizzling performance featuring their hit tracks, “Let’s Explode” and “Magnet”.
The night was clearly headed in the right direction as eccentric graphics on the LED panels marked the beginning of H-Artistry’s electronic dance music acts. The crowd was enraptured as Havana Brown’s DJ deck theatrically rose from the middle of the stage, and a flurry of musical euphoria ensued.
Just as Havana Brown set the pace of her set, the crowd was prompted into an uproar yet again by a dance and vocal performance by the Australian DJ vixen herself. Havana Brown’s hit track “We Run the Night” bolstered the crowd to an unstoppable momentum, as she made way for the final performer of the night – Starkillers, who took the decks with his own distinct and commanding presence, dropping hit tracks and remixes of “Pressure” and “Titanium” to the ardent cheers of the crowd.
As H-Artistry at MIECC approached the end of the night, party goers took full advantage of the Hennessy Art of Mixing Zone, which had been converted into a comfortable chill-out zone for everyone to relax.
Complimentary mineral water bottles were made freely available throughout the night, and were also distributed to everyone at the exits of the arena. Outside the event venue, food stalls were commissioned to stay open till 3am, giving party goers a chance to recharge before heading home.
H-Artistry at MIECC was a night of true musical artistry, mixed with a sensational experience befitting of the amazing culmination for the H-Artistry Trilogy of 2012. H-Artistry events are by-invite-only, and are open to non-Muslims aged 18 above. Keep it locked on here for updates on future H-Artistry events slated for 2013.
