H-Artistry Penang 2014 is back in town, happening tonight at SPICE to be exact. I had the opportunity to catch the Meet & Greet Session in the morning at Equatorial Hotel Penang. This post will be to share some photos of the artistes that will be performing tonight. Similar to last year's super clubbing event, media and bloggers were invited over where they could meet and interview the artistes before the night party.

It wasn't long before the four group of artistes performing at H-Artistry Penang 2014 arrived at the venue. Kicking off the press conference was MC Julie Woon, who introduced the artistes with grace a subtle hints of humour. The artistes that arrived this morning for our Q&A were the Taiwan group Magic Power, the beautiful DJ Brooklyn from Australia and our home grown very own electro-pop band Paperplane Pursuits, and the boys from Imma*bleep*YouUp.

Now the really cool Taiwanese group Magic Power had performed multiple times in H-Artistry overseas, and they have only nice words to say about Malaysia. Decked in red, which is the theme for tonight's party, they were a very cool and friendly bunch, answering all the questions posted in Mandarin, with a translator present.
Hailing from the land down under, Gold Coast’s DJ Brooklyn was introduced to the stage at a very young age and has not looked back ever since. Inspired by Havana Brown’s performance style, DJ Brooklyn is famous for her big-room tunes. Looking really pretty, I'm actually looking forward to her performance tonight.
|Imma *Bleep* YouUp - Malaysia|
Imma *Bleep* YouUp is one of Malaysia’s very own group of house music heroes – consisting of Mr Fluff, Addic3rd and Unkle Jaymz. Heavily influenced by Alesso, Avicii, Dada Life, and Tommy Trash, the big room style of IMBYU will definately be something to look forward to. At the press conference, they were all smiles, and cracked multiple jokes, overall very nice personalities.
Paperplane Pursuit is currently one of the hottest bands on Malaysian airwaves. Having released their first single and mini album in 2009, which was featured on MTV Asia, the trio have since released numerous hit singles such as ‘Everybody Wants Somebody’, ‘What If’ and ‘Beats of Your Love’. Again, I do love their personalities as well, with wide smiles, interacting with all present.
