H-Artistry ‘The Global Art of Mixing’ 2009
H-Artistry ‘The Global Art of Mixing’ is presenting a party to end all parties as it gears up to hit the streets of Kuala Lumpur for the final time in 2009 with a blend of musical talents from Taiwan, Australia and the USA belting it out in what will be one of H-Artistry’s most exciting line-ups to date. Featuring a total of four distinctive but phenomenal artistes, the line-up promises to be nothing short of spectacular.Revellers can expect to be blown away with yet another show-stopping round of world-class acts, as Boston-bred rock band, Boys Like Girls and Australian singer-songwriter, Lenka has been confirmed for the Oct 2 event to be held at Club Quattro in Avenue K.Having sold over 580,000 albums in the United States alone and with chart-topping hits such as ‘The Great Escape’ and ‘Thunder’, rock quartet Boys Like Girls are most definitely the ones to watch. They’ve toured and performed the world over with other established bands such as Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte, Metro Station, and The All American Rejects, and their appearance at H-Artistry ‘The Global Art of Mixing’ marks only their second visit to Malaysian shores.
Joining the boys on the H-Artistry stage is Australian television actress and songstress, Lenka, who is most famous worldwide for her hit single ‘The Show’. The single which has peaked the charts at number one in countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Poland, has also been featured on the UK and European Hot 100 charts. Her self-titled album, ‘Lenka’ meanwhile, broke into the American Billboard 200. Through her vocal stylings which offer a juxtaposition of catchy pop and layered, complicated world music influences, Lenka’s performance at H-Artistry is sure to mesmerize many.
Making up the line-up from the West on Oct 2 is pop-rock musician, Paul Freeman whose music sounds like a combination between Oasis’s pensive, power pop and Bruce Springsteen’s arena rock bravado. His most impressive musical talent lie in his unique and magical ability to connect with his audience through the powerful lyrics in his songs such as “The Girl Who Broke In Two”, “Earthquakes”, and “You and I” which he wrote. One such person who understood the magic of Paul’s music was legendary record producer, Clive Davis, who signed him up personally.
Staying true to H-Artistry’s innovative approach in blending musical genres of the East and West, the event will also see Taiwanese musician, Hsiao Hung Jen take on the stage. With a voice hauntingly familiar to that of a particular Korean superstar, Hsiao has even collaborated in the books with Asian pop guru, Jay Chou. In fact, Jay Chou was so impressed by this newcomer that not only did he personally direct Hsiao’s ‘Watch The Sleeves Go Down’ music video, he even worked on the script and adjusted the lighting effects himself! This plus a nomination in Taiwan’s 20th Golden Melody Awards this year not only cements Hsiao as one of the Eastern stars of the future but also one to look out for at next month’s H-Artistry ‘The Global Art of Mixing’.
Besides showcasing a spectacular blend of live music from the world’s finest artists, clubbers will be treated to a top-notch, top-class affair where the entire experience is sprinkled over with class and style. Plus, there will be more than just music reverberating through the club walls. Intensely overriding the sound waves of Quattro, Avenue K, this mystique hot-spot will be transformed into an attractive mixing palette of cosmopolitans and party enthusiast alike. Starting-up from 8:00pm till late, H-Artistry will be serving its preferred alcoholic beverage, Hennessy V.S.O.P long drinks to create the perfect atmosphere of ‘The Global Art of Mixing’.

BOYS LIKE GIRLS
Rock out with a mind-blowing live set from this Boston-based rock-pop quartet! As frontman Martin Johnson declares, “for us and the fans it doesn’t get any better than playing live.” Boys Like Girls shot to success when their self-titled album release in 2006 went gold, selling 600,000 copies in the US alone. Virtuoso live performers (they toured with Good Charlotte), the boys’ trademark loud, bold and infectious riffs and hooks never fail to get a crowd amped to the max!
This ethereal Australian songstress is behind one of 2009’s catchiest songs, a tune that continues to play in your head long after the last note fades away. Released as the lead single of her self-titled album, “The Show” quickly became a worldwide hit, peaking at #22 on the UK charts and reaching #1 in Thailand and Vietnam. With a music style that is a beguiling blend of catchy pop and complex world music influences, she and her songs will definitely charm their way into your heart.
Paul Freeman is a born performer whose songs find their fullest expression in the passion and sheer joy of a live gig. Signed personally to RCA/Arista Records by the legendary Clive Davis, this self-made singer-songwriter cranks out lyrical ballads and rock anthems alike with flair, charisma and wit. He’s a staple on the Chicago live music scene, playing at hot spots such as Molly Malone’s, Hotel Café and the Viper Room. Now watch him take the stage in KL with an electric live performance!
HSIAO HUNG JEN
This young Taiwanese singer’s star is on a meteoric rise. Nominated this year for “Best Newcomer” at the Golden Melody Awards, Hsiao Hung Jen is officially the latest sensation on the Asian pop music scene.
