Penang had its biggest party recently when H-Artistry set out with its clear goal to deliver an unmatched, premium super-club experience through the Global Art of Mixing platform which promised a phenomenal mix of sights, tastes and sounds on 25 May 2013 at the newly refurbished SPICE (Subterranean Penang International Convention and Exhibition Centre) formerly known as PISA (Penang International Sports Arena).

As an added bonus, this year’s no-frills super-club experience had the staple Hennessy Mixing Bars scattered all over the party venue with its much appreciated signature Hennessy V.S.O.P long drinksHennessy Apple, Hennessy Berry, Hennessy Ginger and Hennessy Soda.

HAS03 photo HAS03_zps1e9ecf28.jpg

The entrance was grand with the invited guest deejays walking down the red carpet accompanied by the acclaimed Emcee Julie Woon. Amongst them were the notable Australian DJ, DJ Andy Murphy, Singapore’s DJ Nicole Chen and Hong Kong’s 24HERBS (???).

Asquared’s set of nu disco and progressive trance kept party goers in the groove as everyone eagerly waited for the main party arena to open. In the meantime, guests kept busy by capturing their “Hennessy Moments” at the “Fotobox” booths, which printed out their photos and uploaded them on Facebook as mementos of H-Artistry.

HAS01 photo HAS01_zpsd079f798.jpg

Come 9.00pm, the beautiful Emcee Julie Woon welcomed the crowd into the main party arena where the towering LED backdrop of the stunning H-Artistry stage counted down to the start of the show. The countdown culminated with an electrifying laser show and striking LED visuals, which kicked off the night’s performances. Enter 24HERBS, who surprised party goers by taking the stage from amongst the crowd. The Hong Kong hip hop outfit was bursting with energy, drawing the crowd in with their infectious stage presence as they demonstrated the credibility of Canto hip hop.

Their performance included hit tracks like “Do You Know Me”, “Fashionista” as well as “Wonderland”, which featured Astro Star Quest champion Alexis Chean in the first H-Artistry collaboration of the night.

HAS08 photo HAS08_zps157384e0.jpg

24HERBS, anchored by SIR JBS, LMF legends Phat and Kit, took an intermission to greet the H-Artistry crowd and threw out 24HERBS Snapbacks into a rousing audience. A cheeky performance of the hit “Hu Ge” brought their performance to an end, which marked the beginning of the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) journey for the rest of the H-Artistry evening.

With the dimming of stage lights, Dennis Lau – clad in a laser-projecting jacket – took the stage with his electric violin, bringing the crowd to an all-new high as he started off with a violin introduction of Swedish House Mafia’s hit “Don’t You Worry Child”. Australian DJ and Producer Andy Murphy took the decks, bringing the prelude to its peak before Alexis Chean took the stage once again to belt out the vocals of the popular dance anthem.

Andy Murphy went on to administer an astounding set of EDM and Big Room tunes for the next hour, firmly setting the momentum of the night with pulsating beats and fist-pumping drops.

HAS09 photo HAS09_zpsfaf4f8b3.jpg

Taking over from Andy was Singapore’s biggest female DJ export Nicole Chen, who brought her popular style ofElectro House and Dirty Dutch onto the H-Artistry stage. Both DJs’ sets, bolstered in intervals by a gorgeous dance crew and breathtaking laser projections, shot the energy levels through the roof at H-Artistry as party goers danced through the night with glasses of Hennessy V.S.O.P in hand.

After a successful launch of the Hennessy V.S.O.P KYRIOS, 3rd addition to Hennessy V.S.O.P’s Privilege Collection, at The Butter Factory, KL, down Central Malaysia, the party finally moved Northern to Penang (Room@Autocity) on 29 March 2013 for a second blasting launch. Party goers, fans of Hennessy and invited bloggers were treated to a resounding club experience with astounding performances by local and foreign deejays.

KYRIOS01 photo KYRIOS01_zpsb9188dbf.jpg

KYRIOS, which means “Guardian” in Greek, is the key to the codes of Hennessy V.S.O.P – elements which make Hennessy the world’s most loved V.S.O.P cognac today. KYRIOS comes after its predecessors Helios and Nyx of the Privilege Collection, this time representing a physical manifestation of the Codes: the Grapes, the emblematic “Bras Armé”, the year 1817, the Copper Colour, and the New Silhouette.

KYRIOS04 photo KYRIOS04_zps96ebee74.jpg

A matte, gray mantle envelopes its carafe, giving the KYRIOS a quiet, stop-and-stare evoking brilliance. Copper grapes decorate the bottle as a reminder of the ancestral savoir-faire and elaborate craftsmanship of the blend, while geometrical lines flank the Hennessy V.S.O.P label to accentuate the new silhouette.

KYRIOS05 photo KYRIOS05_zpsbb74f82d.jpg

The label itself is an innovation, as it is the very first 3D label to be used on a spirit bottle, proudly emblazoning an “1817” monogram which symbolizes the depth of time through which Hennessy V.S.O.P has thrived as the superior cognac. By night, KYRIOS comes alive as its geometrical lines glow in molten copper under black light; a stunning spectacle inside any club.

Of course, there were the beautiful promoters and models with body paintings to liven up the atmosphere.

The launch was spectacular with the models displaying the stunning 3rd edition of the privilege collection.

KYRIOS06 photo KYRIOS06_zps88f9c6c6.jpg

Fast-rising local stars B.A.T.E. (Brain & The Eye) opened the night with their signature Big Room and Electro mixes, steadily bringing the night’s momentum to its first peak – the parading of KYRIOS bottles, each held by a body painted Hennessy V.S.O.P model.

KYRIOS07 photo KYRIOS07_zpsd1ccbe90.jpg

DJ Cookie from Taiwan took over the decks shortly after, unleashing a flow of Club, House and Electro mixes, which brought the first Hennessy V.S.O.P KYRIOS party outside the Klang Valley to a close.
