This year’s H-Artistry had the guests dressed up in hues of red and black, turning the whole party arena into a sea of lively individuals filled with excitement, energy and strength. We were again greeted by the host, Julie Woon, an experienced emcee for all the H-Artistry events. This year’s stage set-up was amazing with towering H-Artistry LED backdrops. The energy in the main arena peaked as the opening sequence featured an electrifying laser show, striking LED visuals and a build-up of energy and excitement from the crowd that definitely shook the arena.

As the room faded to black, individual lights lit to reveal Paperplane Pursuit who serenaded the crowd with their hits such as “Everybody Wants Somebody” and “Higher”. The Malaysian pop sensation wooed the crowd as they joined in to echo the lyrics of each song.

Suddenly, there was an unscheduled surprise for the crowd as the H-Project DJ’s joined the pop trio to deliver an up-tempo collaboration on “Beats of Your Love”. That’s got the crowds’ party mood boasted. The H-Project DJ’s continued to deliver an epic fist-pumping set, resulting in fist-pumping movements and screams of excitement from the crowd. The energetic experience was only to be topped off with a reveal of the duo behind the decks – with the reveal leading to the introduction of DJ Ernest C, and DJ Reeve to the enthusiastic crowd.

The crowd went wild into more excitements when Taiwan’s EDM/mando pop band, Magic Power took over the stage, delivering a multi-genre musical journey like no other. The energetic Taiwan based band featured hit tracks such as “Never Play by the Rules” and “Super Hero”.

Magic Power had a surprise collaboration with Paperplane Pursuit by having a duet on “Love The Way You Lie” (originally by Eminem). I’m sorry I could not get the best audio here but you can see in the video below that they did a great job during the night. It was obvious that their performance was a hit as fans whole heartedly declared their love for the all male assemble in the form of excited cheers.

As the cheers grew louder, the Australian queen of big room-beats, DJ Brooklyn, took over the deck and made her presence obvious as she dropped beats and tunes that got the whole arena pumping.
