Since the Movement Control Order (MCO) was introduced by the Malaysian Government in March 2020, dance floors have remained empty across the country. It’s been an arduous period for the country, and particularly to the entertainment and events industries which have been laid to rest at the bottom of the priority pile.
But despite the heavily controlled lockdown, artists have been leveraging the lull with creative celebrations, for example, Kuala Lumpur’s long-time underground purveyor Ohrwurm recently celebrated an 11 year anniversary with a compilation featuring 11 producers who are primed in the local scene.
Today, in celebration of Malaysia’s National Day, Merdeka, multi-genre platform Saturday Selects, which has been operating events and radio shows since 2016, has put out a compilation of DJ mixes.
Supported and powered by Mixcloud, Saturday Selects have curated a playlist of mixes put together by some of Malaysia’s finest selectors, covering a range of house, techno, drum’n’bass, EDM, hip hop and r’n’b. Some of the highlights include sets by Daaliah, PFTD, Irama, Nahsyk, LZZY, Bass Agents and Injoo — all artists with uniquely contrasting backgrounds, making the playlist fun for just about everyone.
