As we head towards the end of the Lunar New Year, the debut of March had Zouk KL kicking-off on a high note. Last Friday night – 2nd March, 2018, Asia’s largest Superclub had three talents wow-ing guests with their performances. Zouk Mainroom presented top Trance DJ Ben Nicky, while world-renowned comedian Russell Peters dropped by for his after party at Zouk Imperial. To top it off, the club hosted Chris Fleming – the UK born magician, who appeared in the film “Now You See Me 2” roaming Zouk KL grounds.
Having a big name like Ben Nicky buzzing all over social media, it was no surprise that Zouk KL Mainroom was fully booked two days prior to the event, and pre-sale tickets were sold out a week before that. His love for Satay – a Malaysian delicacy was also a winner in bringing a closer connection between himself and local fans in Kuala Lumpur, along with his passion for creating music. Being labeled as ‘one of the most hardworking individuals’ by DJ Superstar Armin Van Buuren, Ben Nicky has definitely set himself on a right foot to Trance Nation worldwide.
Another major name in the industry of laughter – Zouk KL had the honor of hosting Russell Peters, as the globally renowned comedian dropped by for an unofficial after party last Friday night. As Peters was introduced to many for his quirky jokes and fantastic talent for standup comedy, but what many slight passed, was Russell Peters’ amazing DJ talent. The hip-hop junkie along with DJ Spinbad had Zouk KL’s Imperial filled with his local and foreign fans alike. The vibes and tone of the night was surely taken onto a whole new level with a twist of street and urban jams, a touch of old skool hip-hop and mad skillz scratching!
As if the crowd was not yet on high spirits, Zouk KL brought in another subtle surprise for their patrons. Chris Fleming, a master of illusions successfully impressed the house with his unique jaw-dropping tricks. An audience clustered Fleming by the end of the night, only to see what else the talented magician has from up his sleeves. Don’t be surprised to see him again, up to tricks at Zouk KL very soon.
Overall, it was a night to remember for all music lovers and entertainment seekers at Zouk KL.
