Headed over to Rougeur on 29 May 2015 for the Heatwave party featuring headliner Heatbeat and Australian EDM queen Jesabel. The party began with Malaysian DJs MisterAriffin and Adib warming up the crowd with their sets after which Australian EDM queen Jesabel took to the decks with her signature electro and house beats. Having won boutique DJ competitions at Soho Fridays and GirlThing last year, Sydney-based Jesabel has been making a name for herself at DJ booths both down under and abroad. She’s worked with some of Australia’s top talents including Tigerlily, Uberjak’d and Will Sparks, and recently performed for a crowd of over 8,000 at Singapore’s Two Queens beach festival.
By the time headliner Heatbeat took to the stage, the crowd was already amped up and ready for their cutting edge, futuristic sound which fuses multiple genres together to create a smashing new beat. In 2012, thanks to chart-topping hits including ‘Boom’, ‘Game Over’, ‘Extra Bacon’, ‘Rocker Monster’ and ‘Roses Never Cry’, the duo made their debut entry into DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs at position 81. They’ve also been invited to remix and collaborate with major club scene leaders such as Armin Van Buuren, W&W, John O’ Callaghan and Cosmic Gate.
It was Heatbeat’s third time playing in Kuala Lumpur and they introduced some new tracks specially for their Malaysian followers. “The fanbase is always there and when a fan comes to see Heatbeat of course they expect to hear more of us and expect us to drop something new. Normally I would play couple of our older tracks as an introduction before going deeper,” explained Augustin, one half of the duo who described the Heatbeat experience as ‘monster energy’.
One lucky partygoer walked away with a RM3,000-worth Bomberg wristwatch courtesy of the timepiece brand in partnership with Rougeur by taking part in a hashtag contest on Instagram.
