It was another super clubbing aka party weekend earlier this month when H-Artistry Penang 2014 treated more than 2000 Penangites to a spectacular mix of stellar acts from across the globe. I guess this might be the final few times I have to tenacity and energy to drink and party the night away with my fellow friends. Check out my H-Artistry Penang 2014 Meet & Greet Session writeup first, which was held on the same morning as the party.

Arriving at Penang as the first H-Artistry for this year, the stage at SPICE Arena featured with artists from the East and West; Australia, Taiwan, and Malaysia who took over Penang with an eclectic mix of pop, EDM, and electro house beats.

Arriving at the venue, it was a sea of red, as the theme at H-Artistry this year is red, hence everyone was decked in that colour. I myself had on this red striped / checkered shirt while the brother was wearing a red sweater/knit type of clothing. It didn't take long before the doors were opened, and the free flow began.

Decked out in elegant and chic hues of red and black, the H-Artistry Art of Mixing Zone was where the evening kicked off at 7.00pm, as party goers were treated to stunning performances by the H-Artistry dancers, accompanied by pumping lounge beats - as more party revellers made their way to the biggest party of the year in Penang.

Party revellers were then greeted by the host, Julie Woon, and were invited to the main party arena, a spectacular club-like environment which featured an amazing stage set-upand towering H-Artistry LED backdrops. I must say, the whole arena had a very futuristic, reddish visual creating lots of excitement to the already hyped up crowd.

As the room faded to black, individual lights lit to reveal Paperplane Pursuit who serenaded the crowd with their hits such as “Everybody Wants Somebody” and “Higher”. The Malaysian pop sensation wooed the crowd as they joined in to echo the lyrics of each song. The crowd was in for a surprise towards the last song by PPP as the H-Project DJ’s joined the pop trio to deliver an up-tempo collaboration on “Beats Of Your Love”.

The atmosphere of the room went through the roof as Taiwan’s EDM/mando pop band, Magic Power took over the stage, delivering a multi-genre musical journey like no other. The energetic Taiwan based band featured hit tracks such as, “Never Play By The Rules”, “Super Hero”, as well as “Love The Way You Lie” (originally by Eminem) in a surprise collaboration with Paperplane Pursuit.

The Australian queen of big room beats, DJ Brooklyn took over the deck and made her presence obvious as she dropped beats and tunes that got the whole arena pumping. It wasn't long before our very own Malaysian electro house trio Imma*Bleep*Youup came to stage waves of EDM drops, accompanied by stunning laser projections, which definitely delivered Penangites with nothing short of an epic super-clubbing experience.

Itw as indeed a good night out for me, one which I haven't experienced in recent months. Love the feeling of relaxation and chilling with old and new-found friends over some glasses of the good stuff. H-Artistry Penang 2014 at SPICE was truly a night of musical artistry, paired with a sensational experience befitting of an epic first H-Artistry series of epic super-clubbing parties for 2014.
