Recharge Revelation presents Global Gathering

This year Recharge Revelation presents Global Gathering,

Europe's biggest dance music festival!

40 ACTS over 6 ARENAS.

Saturday, 27th October 2007,

A'Famosa Resort, Melaka, Malaysia.

Dance.Hip Hop.Electronica.Rock.Retro.

Leading the massive 10,000-capacity Recharge Godskitchen Arena is a true Revelation hero, Dutch trance icon Johan Gielen. One of the highlights of Recharge Revelation3 in 2005 was the sight of 15,000 clubbers hanging onto his every move. Performing alongside him will be fellow Dutchmen Sander Van Doorn – a DJ Magazine Top 100 star in his own right – and Marcel Woods – a DJ who has brought the sound of the hard trance scene’s underground raves and warehouse parties overground. Along with Finland’s DJ Proteus, one of the world’s top hard dance jocks, and local boys Bass Agents and Fono, the Recharge Godskitchen Arena is well sorted out.

Elsewhere, the Recharge Global Arena is headlined by Layo & Bushwacka, the electro, techno and breaks superstars whose eclectic style has made them one of the most in-demand festival performers on the circuit. Also on the bill are the cheekily-named Astro & Glyde, whose deep and twisted post-Twilo sound has made their infamous Sunday Sessions night New York’s hottest. Ibiza regulars, The Shapeshifters, add their Balearic techno to the Recharge Global Arena mix, and Global Gathering resident, DJ Eston, completes the party vibe of the stage with funk and jazz tinged journey through electronica.

Over at the TQX Freedom Electric Arena there are two distinct flavours. Day-time sees the stage take a more live flavour, courtesy of headliners Black Strobe, the French electro-rock group whose recent debut album, Burn Your Own Church, looks set to become one of the critical raves of the year. Joining them on the bill are Thailand’s top electro sleaze rockers Futon.

When the suns goes down, the TQX Freedom Electric Arena hypes the energy levels even further with sets from Plump DJs, arguably the top breaks and party DJs in the world. They will be joined by hip hop legends, Jungle Brothers featuring Mike G. Support comes from local acts, DJ Blink – Recharge Revelation’s in-house DJ ambassador – and DJ Goldfish, premiering his Spaceship project, as well as local hip hop crew Stylustiks.

Rock fans should also be at the fest, as the TQX Freedom Amp Stage will present some of the region’s top bands (Pop Shuvit, Lied, I Am David Sparkle). Indie disco turntable poppers, Twilight Actiongirl, feature alongside Indonesia’s rock-influenced electro decks ‘n’ fx show of Agrikulture, and Thailand’s Rehab gives Futon mainman Bee a chance to show off behind the decks. And from Singapore there’s the indie-rock turntable madness of Beat!

The best local and international DJs have been kept for the Recharge Foam Bar with hometown DJs like Raysoo, DJ Gabriel, Joey G (CosmicSpaceMunkys), and Groovedoctor, as well as international talents like Damian Saint (Britain), Josh Ezelle (US), DJ Anton Wirojono (Indonesia), Remy Irwan (Indonesia) and Voilah! (Singapore) set to take on the decks. Other international artists that are confirmed playing at the festival will be Simian Mobile Disco and Hyper (Live).
