June 15 sees Heineken Green Room return with yet another tantalising explosion of music and art in the shape of a line up that includes a live set from one of the United States’ most hotly tipped indie-pop outfits, The Drums, and a DJ set from the hands of British electronic mavericks Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs alongside a truly extraordinary collection of Malaysian acts and artists breaking new ground in the field of visual communications. This post will serve as a promotional writeup to the event.

Making their Malaysian debut at Heineken Green Room, Brooklyn New York’s The Drums fall somewhere between classic British indie and classic 1950s surf pop fusing elements as wide as The Smiths, Joy Division and 60s girl group The Shangri-Las. Disciples of Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound, their reverb drenched pop led them to sign with Moshi Moshi, one of the hippest record labels in the UK.

Also arriving in Malaysia for first time, for an incendiary Heineken Green Room DJ set is 27-year old Orlando Higginbottom, better known as Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (TEED). Already a critical darling after blogosphere hit Household Goods in 2010, which has amassed over 2 million views on YouTube (http://bit.ly/LWt9Z8) last year’s debut album Trouble saw him on numerous best of the year list alongside a developing reputation as a performer, with some of the most stunning stage visuals on the live circuit.
|Twilight Actiongirl (TAG)|
Returning to Heineken Green Room, this year Twilight Actiongirl (TAG) the quartet of DJ Bunga, ChaseyLain, Ribut 10:59 and DJ XU celebrates its tenth anniversary. Their signature brew of indie anthems and electro edged remixes – alongside a healthy dose of retro and esoteric Malaysiana – has seen them double as mentors and role models to a new generation of music obsessed fans.
Joining them on this Heineken Green Room line up will be the celebrated party outfit Deer Society, who have built a reputation for staging some of the fiercest and most musically eclectic events in Malaysia, as well as one of the country’s rising talents, Darren Ashley, with a solo electronic set.
Heineken has also recently inked a deal with Spotify – the world’s biggest and most successful music streaming service of its kind. For the first time in South East Asia, Heineken charts new ground by giving its fans yet another unique avenue to enjoy music together with Spotify. In anticipation to the upcoming Heineken Green Room, our local music and art scenesters have created an exciting retrospective playlist in Spotify featuring the music & inspiration of the music event.
