Hello Sunshine People! This week is full of great music, food, laughs and we hope great company. What else could we ask for?! Say hello to our #SunshineNationPICKS of the week.
THURSDAY 12 JULY @ KILO LOUNGE
Red Bull Music presents Tokimonsta
As TOKiMONSTA, California producer Jennifer Lee has charted a fascinating career over the past seven years, and Lune Rouge is her exhilarating next step. The third proper long-player from TOKiMONSTA is both a logical progression of her sound and a surprising left turn from an artist that rarely ceases to surprise. A smoky, patient and altogether lovely collection, Lune Rouge mixes modern sensibilities with old-school sounds to make for a heady brew of moonlit music.

Under the Bridge: Back2Basics
"UTB is back once again like a true renegade master - conjuring up enough bass to make Hari Krishna into a bad boy. Yes, yes, it's that time again. Throw on your kicks and ready to bounce as we are coming back at you with some serious attitude.
This time we are going 'back to basics' true UK free party style, so expect the unexpected (in Singapore), a cool mixture of glitch hop, breakbeat, drum&bass, electro swing, dubstep and everything inbetween. WAKE UP MOFOs, it's time to party like you mean it, and we know you do"
