Fresh off attending the press conference / meet & greet session for Hennessy Artistry Penang 2013 at G Hotel this afternoon, here I am sharing some photos of the artistes that will be performing tonight. Similar to last year's super clubbing event, media and bloggers were whisked over to Penang from KL to cover and party the night away.

It did not take long before the 3 artiste groups arrived. Kicking off the press conference was MC Julie Woon, as she is affectionately called "DJ Juju" by the Hong Kong hip-hop outfit 24 Herbs today. The artistes that arrived this afternoon for our Q&A were the group 24 Herbs, the really dashing and handsome DJ Andy Murphy from Australia and DJ Nicole Chen from Singapore. Beautiful people I might say.

Performing in Malaysia for the first time this Hennessy Artistry event, 24 Herbs had only nice words to describe Penang Island. Sand and water were some of the words I remembered being used. All is great though, as all the members of 24 Herbs from Hong Kong were really jovial and friendly. Hard to imagine them as the tough talking hip-hop persona they portray in their performance.

The other really good looking artiste, DJ Andy Murphy won over nearly all the female participants in today's press conference. I would give him my sign of approval as well, as he does have the really dashing look. One of Australia’s most prolific young DJs, constantly touring the world and making appearances in clubs, events and international dance music festivals, it was a great feeling meeting him up close and personal.

When Nicole Chen walked up to take her seat amongst the artistes performing tonight, my initial thoughts were that she looks really young and sweet. But wait until she spins her set, then be prepared to be blown away by her electrifying up-tempo electro-house / dirty-dutch sets. Another prominent DJ from Singapore, I am rather excited to feel her performance at Hennessy Artistry tonight.
