Music by?


Alexandra Burke
R&B – UK
“I'm not super human, I'm just Alexandra from North London,” says Alexandra Burke. Yes, she is indeed 'just' Alexandra Burke from North London, but she's also the 2008 winner of The X Factor, a three-time chart-topper on the singles chart (her debut, a stirring cover of Hallelujah, sold 105,000 copies on its first day of release) and the creator of a UK number 1 album, Overcome, that features collaborations with the likes of Flo Rida Ne-Yo and RedOne. She can belt out a ballad and she brings energy in abundance once the tempo shifts up a gear.

Like all great pop music, her latest album “Heartbreak On Hold” effortlessly wraps lyrical sadness in songs that make you want to dance. From the frustrated stomp of first single Elephant – a song written about a relationship that was slowly stalling to the exuberant throw-your-cares-away dance rush of second single Let It Go, Heartbreak On Hold is an album that acknowledges the hard times but offers a window of opportunity for people to forget about it all.

While Elephant and Let It Go both slot nicely into the current pop trend for dancefloor stompers, Heartbreak On Hold also displays Alexandra's love for 90s dance, specifically the emotional house music of Robin S or the soul-inflected dance of Soul II Soul, as heard most obviously on the heart-burstingly bittersweet title track.

Fans can expect a sensational performance as she takes the stage at H-Artistry this 3 November, where her distinctive style of Dance and R&B will be part of a fantastic mix of musical genres, styles and cultures by artists from all over the world.

Havana Brown
DANCE - AUSTRALIA
Since firmly establishing herself as a force to be reckoned with in the Australian and international DJ scene, Havana Brown’s hustle hasn’t slowed for a minute. As the only female DJ to sign a major label recording deal in Australia, Havana has delivered on Universal Music’s expectations with multiple releases of her Crave compilation series, all charting and spurning successful national and international club tours. DJ Havana Brown has since put out some hugely successful tracks, and continues to take over Malaysian dance floors and airwaves with the euphoric track “We Run The Night” ft. Pitbull.

The talented Australian DJ also holds down three hugely successful weekly radio spots. With over a 1-million-strong cult following on her weekly sets, Havana owns the Australian and European airwaves through the Austereo network and Radio FG France – one of Europe’s most popular dance radio networks and home to some of the world’s biggest DJ’s including David Guetta, Tiesto, Carl Cox, Armin Van Buuren, Bob Sinclar and others.

DJ Havana Brown has firmly cemented herself as one of the most successful Australian DJ exports of the decade. Her impressive resume also lists support act for Lady Gaga, The Pussycat Dolls and Rihanna, and a score of exclusive VIP parties and concerts. From the official Grammy's After Party in Los Angeles alongside WILL.I.AM and Paris Hilton’s New Years Eve Party, to the upcoming H-Artistry Finale of The Global Art of Mixing Trilogy 2012 at MIECC, DJ Havana Brown certainly lives up to her title of Australia’s No.1 female DJ. Be there as she “runs the night” with more than 3,500 party goers this 3 November at MIECC.

Starkillers
ELECTRO HOUSE – USA
As the USA’s dance music scene continues to come of age on a widespread scale and different styles proliferate and evolve, new talents are coming thick and fast. However, only a few have the staying power to go the distance. Formerly known as Nick Terranova, Las Vegas talent Starkillers has been cutting a swathe through the bolshier end of the global house music scene over the last few years with his tough-edged, eclectic sound.
Blending big hooks and riffs, soaring vocals, thumping beats and mind-bending effects trickery, his sound is the perfect blend of high-octane, fierce energy and accessible appeal. It’s truly at home amidst the contemporary sound of cutting-edge dance music. “I’m A.D.D” he explains of the hyperactive nature of his music. “I really just try to make my sound as crazy as I can without being too far left that people don’t get it” he says.
He’s succeeded without the hyperbole that surrounds so many other artists, his popularity speaking for itself with two of Beatport’s Top 25 biggest-sellers of 2009 (including a Number 1 during the same year with his remix of Armand Van Helden’s classic The Funk Phenomenon), and more sales smashes over the last two years. Then there’s his Essential New Tune accolade from Pete Tong and an IDMA (International Dance Music Awards) nomination for his anthem Discoteka, and acclaimed remixes for some of the biggest names in the world - including Robbie Rivera, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Jerome Isma-Ae and iiO.
Keep it locked on at www.h-artistry.com.my for passes to catch Starkillers as he brings an edgy addition of electro house to the epic finale of 2012’s H-Artistry – The Global Art of Mixing Trilogy this 3 November at MIECC.

Block B
K-POP – KOREA
Started out by hip-hop artist and producer Cho PD under his label Brand New Stardom, Block B was among the hottest K-Pop rookies to debut last year, and they have come a long way since. With three hugely successful records out, namely New Kids On The Block, Welcome To The Block and Do You Wanna B, Block B is one of the fastest rising K-Pop boy bands internationally, and have garnered lots of attention as well as a huge following throughout Asia.
Often compared to the likes of Big Bang and B1A4, Block B is known as one of the more unique K-Pop bands for their originality, talent and attitude.  Huge hits like Halo, Going Crazy and Wanna B showcase the group’s rap and vocal chops, while their on-stage presence gives them an air of respect, and at the same time portrays their fun-loving attitude; making them immensely exciting to watch.
Bringing hip-hop and K-Pop into the mix at the H-Artistry finale at MIECC, Block B is another crucial ingredient in the excellent mix of musical styles and genres that represents what H-Artistry stands for – The Global Art of Mixing.

Collaborations, epic mash-ups, spectacular blends and fist-pumping remixes will be aplenty throughout the night, complemented by the signature Hennessy V.S.O.P. long drinks: Hennessy Apple, Hennessy Berry, Hennessy Ginger and Hennessy Soda.
While the expectation of 3,500 revellers will be partying hard this 3 November at perhaps the biggest H-Artistry party yet, partying hard and partying smart is imperative. Be sure to fully take advantage of the FREE H-Artistry Party Shuttle or the subsidized H-Artistry Party Taxi services and be chauffeured to MIECC and back, as parking at the venue will not be available.



Make sure that you are 18 years old and above to party at the biggest party! =D
