Hallowen nite is BACK on this Friday!!! Where are the ghosts, zombies, spirits and Draculas??? Woo...they must be hiding in motowns and dark alleys waiting to scare the SOUL out of u!!! Man...u probably have to perform Michael Jackson's moonwalk dance and shouT "Out" to crucify them!
As if they are not the only trouble in town, some bad dudes sent by the notious Mafia are theatening the citzens with their HIP HOP moves to show how "bad" they are. FUNKY policemen arrive just in time to arrest the gangsters with their handcuffs.
When the streets return to peace once again, ABBA Dancing Queen is going to drop the lights on to dig out those DISCO sounds! Towards the morning, the clubbers will probably be too tired....and taking their break to enjoy their chill-out JAZZ tunes.
Yes...u are in for a chilling treat @ Blu Jaz Cafe where u get to enjoy all those HUGE music genres under one roof.

Push through the wandering skeleton corpses and floating ghouls to the other side where other characters come out to play.
Wander on towards Alley Bar and meet with our tarot card gypsy, who may let you dabble with your past and peek into the future. Succumb to the lure of the entrancing beats spun out by celebrity DJs and mingle with our peculiar friends over spooky deals.

5 岁在父母爱听音乐的熏陶下，12 岁创作了的第一首歌曲‘平静的心’。但是，创作道路平平，写了10多年都无法寻得突破。于是决定自资制作唱片，在实现童年梦想的当儿，更希望可以和大家分享自己对音乐的想法---简单的音乐，好的音乐。持着疯狂不退缩的精神，敦鸿克服了在音乐之旅所碰到的种种障碍。他坚信只要肯付出努力，一切终究没有问题。
请游览www.iamyet.net 查询有关叶敦鸿 Yet 首张个人创作音乐专辑《那个疯狂的人》。
At the age of 5, he started to swing to the music that his parents listen to. He composed his first song at the age of 12, titled "Peace at Heart". It has always been Yet's dream to be able to have his own album. He then decided to produce his own album and share his passion and philosophy of his music with others --- Simple Music, Good Music. Yet is definitely crazy about music and he is as crazy about what Life has taught him. He believes deeply that perseverance and conscientious effort is the key to resolve any obstacle. No problem, he has made it and is here to share with you the Crazy Yet.
For more information about Yet’s first album, please visit www.iamyet.net.

DJ Nomsta will be laying down the vibe at Hacienda Friday 24th October 2008 so there will be all the jazzy bits, the broken beat and the tastiest 4 to the floor - even for the most discerning barfly. Come listen, taste that delicious cocktail menu at Hacienda, chill out at the gardens or have a boogie woogie with Nomsta by the console! The culture of tasteful quality dance music. This is what NOMSTA* is all about.It may be Hip Hop, it can be Techno or Jazz, we dig Funk, Soul, even Pop music. Nomsta* embraces everything relevant and tasteful that has soul. More than 3 decades of music meltdown, culture clashing, artistic progression and cross interpretation has created this exclusive class of music today. From the early days of jazz funk and soul to disco and electronic explosion, through the club culture of the 21st century, a special breed of musicians and artistes formed a movement – a strong yet invisible class that unites people from different music scenes, backgrounds, even eras, to come together as one - a movement that separates the cutting edge from the norm. This is the style of Nomsta*.Started with a job at the record labels, path the career in music through promotions, management, A&R and now as a DJ sharing quality and meaningful music with the masses. Nomsta* has played alongside top cats like... Roy Davis Jr (US), Australia MOS's Kid Kenobi & MC Shureshock, Andy Smith (x Portishead) and Boca 45 as Dynamo Productions, DJ Siskid (now of Blackstrobe), Zero dB (Ninja Tune/Fluid Ounce), Spiritual South and DJ Mad Mats of Raw Fusion, Pablo Valentino (Faces Records FR), DJ Rev (Japan), Modernday Soothsayers (Roy Davis Jr's live band), Frank de Jojo (Zero dB), live vocalist Heather Wildman (Strictly Rhythm).Nomsta's taste is verified by industry-standard tastemakers Good Vibrations Festival, Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival and Singapore "style radio" Lush 99.5FM.

Location: Global Sounds Cafe
Purpose of the group:
The b.e.a.t.sproject mission is to allow individuals to Be .Enthusiastic. About .Thy. Self. That makes up b.e.a.t.s. in acronyms.
It is an avenue whereby all with talent,hidden talent and undiscovered talent will be able to freely express themsleves with no judgemnet or repurcussions as we encourage members to respect each others form of free expression..be it..art form,dance,drama or music. It is a society that encourages different styles of art expression to collaborate with each other in its purest form of natural beauty. Because it being very 'Local'..in this sense I mean neighbourly..it involves heartlanders from different walks of life and styles. Mostly,youths are involved in the b.e.a.t.sproject but the b.e.a.t.s welcome all people..no age limit.
It is usually voluntary based if you would like to showcase your talent or work. We do not have a designated venue for b.e.a.t.s as events and shows happen at anytime and place. It's a meetup of ppl with similar interests..that's all. We just wanna soak in all this good vibes.
Thank you for reading..about the the b.e.a.t.s.
Hasta Luego Amigos Y Amigas

This is the 2nd meetup...and we are serious about jazz. How about you? Every Sunday afternoon, jazz musicians and enthusiasts gather at the The Tanglin CC basement studio to do their thing. We don't just talk the talk..we walk the walk. Afterwards we chill out at the wine bar or even have dinner together. Later in the evening, if our creative urges are still unsatisfied, we drop by Jazz@Southbridge to jam with the best in town.
