Zouk Club KL – Asia’s Largest Superclub recently broke into the Top #19 clubs globally, receiving tremendous applause from its faithful. But there’s something else brewing in the lower depths of the club on weekdays. An almost infectious like movement, spreading in Velvet Underground, slowly creeping up the spines of the resident DJs, making them wonder what is up with Thursdays at Zouk Club KL...
‘School of Pop’ is the latest addition to Zouk KL’s regular programming nights. Over recent months it has seen a steady but sudden rise of party-goers flock the grounds with the hopes of catching sounds from radio/ billboard hits of the 90s, to the hot-chart toppers today. What’s funny is that this revolution of time and relatability to the flow of music and rhythm is happening on Thursday’s rather than the more expected Friday or Saturday nights.
Party-goers are immersing themselves more in the music, an experience that converges with the more familiar concerts, live events and music festivals seen on the rise today. This means a lot more sing-alongs, more hands swinging from side-to-side along to the tempo of sets, leading to a similar concert vibe on the dance floor of Velvet Underground; something very different from any regular nights at Zouk KL.
“It's an intimate, no pressure, fun night. [Zouk KL Resident DJs] Playing all your favorite hits. You come have fun, sing-along, dance with your friends, and just look forward to the weekends!” quoted Blink (Zouk KL Resident DJ).
Remembering the over the top club scene in New York of the 70s, the synth ‘videotheque’ 80s and the colorful rave getups of the late 90s, its times like this that is creating a new vibe of dance culture in Kuala Lumpur. ‘School of Pop’ is proof to corporations and white-collar workers that you can still have fun on weekdays.
