Another year, another explosive year end party by Hennessy. The H-Artistry Trilogy of parties which brought us to Penang and back culminated with the finale over at MIECC on the 3rd November 2012. I had the opportunity to attend, and I must say it was another eye-opening experience.

Hennessy Artistry MIECC 2012
8.30pm November 3 2012
|Another night of free-flow Hennessy mix|
H-Artistry at MIECC delivered an extraordinary mix of stellar musical acts from across the globe, a trademark H-Artistry atmosphere and a palatable blend of signature Hennessy V.S.O.P. long drinks: Hennessy Apple, Hennessy Berry, Hennessy Ginger and Hennessy Soda

Capturing the essence of The Global Art of Mixing was a line up of international artists of diverse musical styles and genres, featuring The X Factor winner and UK’s R&B darling Alexandra Burke, world-renowned Australian DJ vixen Havana Brown, K-Pop boy band heartthrobs Block B, and Las Vegas’ edgiest DJ Starkillers a.k.a. Nick Terranova. Making a surprise appearance was one of the hottest all-girl K-Pop groups to debut recently – EvoL.

Arriving at the venue rather early, braving through the heavy downpour and traffic jam, the party did not kick off until past 10pm. It was all good though as I took the opportunity to catch up with fellow bloggers and friends, and even took our late night dinner together. As the crowd came in droves, we got to catch some of the artistes as they arrived on the red carpet to H-Artistry 2012.

Enter the gorgeous hosts of the night, Julie Woon and Sarah Lian, who warmed up the crowd with banter and pleasantries, setting the tone for a great night ahead. Aside from learning how to mix their favourite Hennessy V.S.O.P. long drinks at the Hennessy Mixing Bars and posing for the Hennessy 360 Cam, guests could scan QR codes around the venue to collect reward points via the MY Hennessy App, explained the beautiful hosts. Collecting these Hennessy Rewards Points would allow party goers to redeem exclusive gifts and benefits.

As the night progressed on, we had performances by the artistes, one which I found it rather hard to capture using my poor camera. Nevertheless it was all good though, as the music boomed in the background, hennessy drinks in our hands, and friends all around. I didn't really mind the packed atmosphere at all, as I always think, the more the merrier!

After the k-pop performance by Block B, the next artist to take the stage was Alexandra Burke, who immediately stamped her vocal authority as the prima donna of the night. The rendition was given a distinct edge, thanks to Alexandra Burke’s full, powerful vocals and Block B’s crisp rap delivery – another resounding East-meets-West collaboration to take place on the H-Artistry platform.

What got me all excited was when DJ Havana Brown took to the stage. With her really good showmanship along with DJ spinning, it did not take much to get the crowd to their feet. I do think she plays really good bassy music which went well with the party-goers.
Of course, for the remainder of the night, it was all Hennessy and happy faces as the alcohol level increases. It was a good thing a few of my friends actually booked the Mines Wellness Hotel which was just opposite the venue. Ample taxis were provided that night too, hence minimizing the dangers of party-goers driving while under the influence. Check out a couple more photos I managed to capture that night as below
