Singapore’s biggest hip hop star Kevin Lester (pictured) and former Singapore DMC champion DJ KoFlow are headlining one of KL’s most popular hip hop nights.
Kevin Lester, the self-proclaimed ‘Lion City Boy’, is definitely the most exciting hip hop export from Singapore. Not only has he performed in New York, Cannes, Rotterdam and Amsterdam, his debut album in 2010, ‘Let’s Talk About Kevin Lester’, has gathered rave reviews. His single ‘Rockstar 2.0’ was picked as one of the Top 35 songs around the world by The Guardian in 2011. Safe to say, Kevin will be performing the track as well as covers of his favourite hip hop classics.
Also from Singapore, DJ KoFlow is one of the best turntablists in the region. His efforts in pushing the boundaries of his industry have earned him numerous accolades and given him the opportunity to share the same stage with international artistes such as Missy Elliot, The Black Eyed Peas and Kanye West. KoFlow also recently launched his album, ‘The Turntable Instrumentalist at the Esplanade’, marking another milestone in his musical career.
Local stars Joe Flizzow, SonaOne and DJ Biggie will join the twosome in this bleeping, swaggy night. Don’t forget your snapback, kids. Ian Loh
