Indonesian Terrorists Terrorise Manumission

Ibiza promoters Manumission have postponed a planned Minimission event in Bali after terrorists blew up two five star hotels in Jakarta two weeks ago, killing nine people.

“Manumission in Privilege was singled out as the highest risk terrorist target in Ibiza by the British Government due to the massive numbers of people attending and the nature of our shows,” Mike and Claire Manumission explained in a statement, “We feel that doing our show in Bali at this present moment could be like waving a red flag to a bull.”

The couple also cited Manchester United’s decision to cancel a 3 day trip following the bombings, explaining ‘we do not feel safe going to Bali to do an event on the beach. We feel we would be putting our team and ourselves and the public at risk.”

Event promoter Arief Sundjaja from Indonesian superclub organisation the Embassy Club was sympathetic.

“Manumission's cancellation is really a disappointment as we've worked hard to bring them here to Indonesia to Bali, the island of the Gods. And in a way we are contributing to Indonesian society by staging what would have been this major event. It's just too bad the terrorists didn't see it that way and decided to wreck it for the rest of us,” he said.

Manumission’s press release also quoted Foreign Office advice warning of ‘a general threat from terrorism in Indonesia’ though Arief downplayed the significance of the official travel alert.

“Those warnings appear as and when there're some news on something we feel is often quite trivial; there's a higher chance of you getting hit by traffic here than being bombed, to be honest,” said Arief.

“It’s now two weeks since the bombings happened and little has changed in business terms since then,” he noted.

“Hotels in Bali are full and people are still out eating at their favourite restaurants, clubbing and partying, hardly any events have been cancelled, apart from Manumission postponing,” he noted.

“I applaud the Indonesians who in solidarity, are going out to Bali in droves to party. And I must say, the Indonesian government is doing a better job this time round,” he concluded.

A tattoo artist on Koh Phangan has confessed to killing female German tourist Astrid Al-Assaad Schachner, whose body was found floating in shallow water last weekend, the day after the latest Full Moon Party.

Thai suspect Tiwat Kasemchoke, 29, bizarrely claimed the 45 year old victim had been ‘stalking’ him and admitted planning to kill her, local newspaper The Nation reported.

"She had humiliated me. She often told other foreigners that I fell for her and tried to rape her several times, which is not true. It's she who wanted to be in a relationship", the tattooist allegedly told cops.

"I had told her several times that I've had no romantic interest in her but she did not listen," he said in a statement published after he was charged with ‘premeditated murder’. "Her persistency made me annoyed and angry",” he added.

Numerous postings on Koh Phangan related message boards described Astrid as a popular well known traveller on the island with Nation journalist Daniel Anderegg declaring ‘Astrid was a friend and what happened to her is so horrible’.

He also detailed a similarly horrific attack close to the heart of the Full Moon Party, on Hadrin Beach.

“On the same night there was another bloody incident in front of Kaktus Bar, in which a Thai attacked a foreigner with a samurai knife and almost chopped off his head,” he wrote in the Nation, “I don't know if the victim survived,” he added.

Skrufff man-on-Koh Phangan Graham Gold said the latest killing remains ‘obviously big news on the island’ and admitted he’s hearing increasing stories of traveller girls being drugged with GHB and raped.

“Things have been getting darker in Haad Rin for sure; I am seeing a side I didn't know existed,” said Graham, “I SERIOUSLY advise ANY girl traveling either on her own or even with a group, not to accept a drink, or even a drink from a bucket from any stranger.”

“I had not heard the story about the samurai sword incident but let’s just say it would not surprise me,” he added, “Even though Kaktus Bar is right in the middle of the beach and is known for its very cheesy music so is normally not a place for trouble.”

The legendary London DJ advised revelers to skip the Full Moon parties in favour of Shiva, Black Moon and Half Moon eventw (‘people go for the music and not to get fucked on Sangsum (local whiskey) and (magic) mushrooms like they do in Haad Rin’)  and admitted he’s personally in danger twice in the last month.

“I nearly had two fights at an after hours club on New Year’s Eve but I was also pretty wrecked so don't really remember what the causes of the arguments were,” he chuckled.

“There are these ragga Thais here who act like Jamaican Yardies basically and they’re not pleasant and also extremely racist against westerners,” he warned. “It’s important to avoid them and any confrontation with them at all because you won’t win the fight. And if you do, the only option open to you is leaving the island immediately.”

“But it is NOT all bad,” Graham stressed, “I moved here 9 months ago and love it. Koh Phangan is a beautiful island that consists of a hell of a lot more than Full Moon parties in Haad Rin,” he pointed out.

ImageHanoi Rocks- Good Evening Vietnam

“Hanoi’s club scene right now is dire; there's no other word for it.  There's simply no infrastructure in place to support a decent nightlife here at present.  The cops closed down the only decent club- New Century- about a year ago following a drug raid and fragmented the scene well and truly.”

Though New Zealander Giles Cooper heads up CAMA one of the few party promotion crews currently operating in Vietnam’s capital Hanoi- he’s refreshingly candid in his assessment of the city’s current nightlife scene.

“A couple of reasonable small venues have opened up but they tend to get filled with fancy boys and girls purely there to be seen; it seems no-one really gives a toss about the music,” he continues, “That's not to say there isn't good stuff going on from time to time (CAMA events of course) but it's slim pickings.  Probably the biggest problem is the supposed official shut-down time of 12am.  It's pretty hard to get cranking properly before that time, isn’t it.”

CAMA (standing for ‘Club for Art and Music Appreciation’) was set up by Giles and founding partner Nick with Hanoi Minsk Club adventurer Dan Dockery joining more recently to help fulfill their mission statement ‘to make something happen’. Dan, a pony tailed, charismatic, larger than life biker who’s lived in Vietnam long enough to be married, divorced and to learn Vietnamese, is as unimpressed as Giles with Hanoi’s current scene.

“Most Vietnamese clubbers look for a chance to 'be seen', they’re generally more concerned about being seen in the right place, drinking the most expensive liquors with extravagant trays of fruits over the table,” he says.

“Whilst people enjoy to 'let their hair down' most of them have little idea at all about music. Throw a techno beat behind Aled Jones, Chelsea FC or unheard of Danish bands like Michael Learns To Rock and they're pleased as punch.”

“To be honest, the state of Hanoi night-life right now is in temporary forced retirement with a view to going back to work in the future. However a long lay off is expected,” he chuckles.

Both promoters admit that the club scene in Vietnam’s other big conurbation Ho Chi Minh City is significantly more developed, though both equally prefer staying in Hanoi, with Giles singling out its ‘grimy, unpredictable character’ in particular.

“Though I wonder if we're a bit too negative about the scene here,’ he laughs, “We want people to come here after all.”

Visiting Cama’s Myspace page, immediate idiosyncrasies stand out including their mood setting of ‘pugnacious’ and club motto of ‘trouble- music-more trouble’ though Hanoi, despite pre-conceptions turns out to be a remarkably trouble free zone.

As the capital of Vietnam for almost 1,000 years (the millennium is next year) it’s best known to Westerners as the heart of USA defeaters North Vietnam and a distinctive military presence remains tangible today. One of the city’s key tourist attractions is the prison where John McCain was locked up during the war and immaculately dressed soldiers- old and new- are highly visible on the streets.

Hanoi also boasts countless fabulous pagodas and lakes and picture postcard French boulevards populated by strutting designer Dolce & Gabbana clad youth and old ladies carrying food dangling from poles across their shoulders. And it’s on the streets where Hanoi’s greatest danger lies, namely its traffic; threatening life and limb to both pedestrians and the hordes of apparently suicidal motorcylists navigating a traffic system that’s as near to total anarchy as anywhere on the planet. And one that bizarrely seems to work.

Dan, who occasionally organises motorbike tours for tourists, admits he’s had a few knocks, though explains that the first- and last rule of thumb is to go with the flow- to never stop, This applies to pedestrians too, resulting in individuals  routinely- and terrifyingly- stepping out in front of screeching buses, criss-crossed by bikes, buses and cars (literally) moving in all directions. Drink driving is also a major issue (countless locals sip countless beers on countless pavement bars from dawn onwards- even Singapore Airlines offers free beer automatically on boarding planes) though traffic is so heavy that speeds are thankfully slow.

ImageTouristic talk aside , I’m in Vietnam to DJ at the Heineken Green Planet Party @ Viet Soviet Friendship Palace, apparently the first large scale dance party Hanoi’s ever seen. Heineken are confident up to 2,000 local Vietnamese kids will pack into the hall, which they’ve decked out with a spacious circus style tented arena, fringed with bars, LCD monitors and Heineken hostesses, gorgeous girls in Santa outfits (it’s just before Xmas) whose main job appears to be looking gorgeous.

Showtime is 7.30pm prompt and local scene star DJ Tommy has an initially tough time. Cama guys Dan and Giles have warned beforehand that most Vietnamese youth have no experience of dance clubs at all, and it’s clear from the school disco style U space at the front of the dancefloor that no-one feels confident to get the party started. As Tommy bangs out local pop rave classics (Call On Me type pumping fodder), local hip hop hero K Beatbox eventually saves the day, bouncing onto the stage and calling people to the front. A massive surge results and within moments the whole floor is filled, to the relief of both Tommy and me, watching from stage right. Local hip hop acts and break-dancers pick up the vibe, as the hall fills up tight and even starts over-flowing.

Strongly advised by Giles and Dan to pack a safety backup of crowd pleasers, I kick off my set  at 10pm sharp with Andrea Dorea’s thumping classic Bucci Bag, followed by Princess Superstar, Crookers mix of Wiley and Tiegschwarz’s seminal rework of Spektrum’s ‘Something New’. The result (I’m delighted to say) is absolute pandemonium, as hundreds rush the stage, shouting, dancing and screaming. 90 minutes later, it’s 11.30 and the hall is shutting down, with many of the 2,000 revellers already streaming home from what’s already a late night. Hanging round for pictures are 20 or so keener clubbers, all of whom- to a man- are male.

“Despite the fact that several girls now drink, it's fair to say that most of them don't or might only in the slightest of moderation. The guys drink and drink in excess,” Dan muses. “Clubs in Hanoi are not necessarily so much a place to meet people; people go out in groups and tend to stick with their friends,” he says.

Despite this, both Dan and Giles (and seemingly all of their male expat friends) are in relationships with Vietnamese females, not least because, as Giles points out ‘far be it for me to make crass generalisations but I don't think it's unreasonable to say that Vietnamese girls are some of the sexiest in Asia.”

“But having said that, it can be difficult to make romantic headway due to language and cultural differences but then that's true of all men and women isn't it? “ Giles continues.

“It's not uncommon to hear Western women complain that it's hard to get the attentions of men in this place due to the competition. On the other hand, I know more than a few guys who have made it their MO (modus operanda) to mine the under-sexed Western girl vein with rich rewards.”

He’s also quick to point out that local Vietnamese guys pose little threat towards culturally insensitive expats on the pull.

“Aggro is not really an issue here provided you remain respectful,” says Giles.

“You're far more likely to end up entangled with psycho, stalker girls who still believe in Prince Charming, true love and virginity than you are to encounter violence chatting up someone else's girlfriend,” he laughs.
Girlfriend talk aside, both guys remain devoted to both Hanoi, and bringing over bands and DJs with Giles clear about what motivates his passions.

“What keeps me in Hanoi? Where to start?” he says, “The food, the weather, the motorbikes, the girls, the lunacy, the lack of a requirement to participate as a functioning member of civil society. “

And as far as putting on parties is concerned, it's precisely because we do live here that it's so important to us. We're not just passing through; we are making lives for ourselves here and  we need to take a certain responsibility for our own needs and wants.  It's self-sufficiency borne of necessity.  And of course it's a lot of fun.  We meet great people we wouldn't otherwise meet, and we get to play in an area that would be much more difficult to break into in an established market,” he points out.

Giles, who’s a business lawyer by day is  also cautiously optimistic about Hanoi’s longer term future, both in clubbing terms and generally.

“Change tends to happen very incrementally here and predicting the direction things will take is not easy.  Often times it's a case of two steps forward, one step back,” he says.

“That said, everything here, including entertainment in general and youth culture in particular, is on an upwards curve and I would not expect that to change.  The vast majority of Vietnam's 85 million people are under 30 years of age and they are opening up and expressing themselves in ways that are new to Vietnam.”

So why visit Hanoi before Bangkok or Singapore?

“Let's be honest: Singapore's a lovely clean sophisticated but boring place; it’s the Switzerland of Asia; hardly a cutting edge kind of destination,” Giles suggests.

“If you go to an event there, you can be sure everything's government sanctioned, and above board whereas Hanoi in contrast is a chaotic, contradictory place with a lot of energy and uncertainty.  People living here tend to be very enthusiastic about what's going on because they know very well that options are limited and you never know when an event could be shut down.  Bangkok's somewhere in the middle and a great place to visit, it’s closer to HCMC than Hanoi in temperament, options and venues.  If it was me, I'd stop in Bangkok on my way to Hanoi,” he advises.

Zouk presents Mystery Jets (UK) live in concert!
Sunday 11 January 2009
9pm at Zouk (8pm doors open)
90 minute show + post party

With their colourful, catchy guitar pop to prog rock, Mystery Jets have been winning the hearts and minds of critics and fans alike, headlining and selling out performances. Undoubtedly influenced by the 1980’s, the bohemian, London based band’s musical heroes range from The Cure and The Smiths to Prince and Michael Jackson.

With two outstanding albums, ‘Making Dens’ (2006) and the second album ‘Twenty One’ (2008) produced by Indie DJ Mash Up Don, Erol Alkan, the results were even catchier choruses and huge stylistic instrumentations. Melodic hit singles like ‘Two Doors Down’, ‘Young Love’ ft Laura Marling and ‘Half In Love With Elizabeth’ have all made the connection between clever indie and wry pop. And the dance world have all embraced the band, with remixes by Justice, Switch and Zongamin just to name a few.

Living up to the hype, Mystery Jets live shows exude exuberance and unpredictability in a most convincingly stylish manner. “We want to communicate, says Will (guitar, vocals) but in a way that isn’t superficial, in a way that can make a difference to peoples lives. “

There is little doubt that Mystery Jets are one of the most exciting UK bands to emerge in recent years.
"Mystery Jets are a must-go-see. They score for harnessing so much energy..."
“A band working towards brilliance” NME
"...glorious, marathon music-makers who will undoubtedly be having you weeping all over your iPod.." NME

Hong Kong’s exclusive KEE private members club opens in Shanghai this October

Hong Kong’s exquisite KEE private members club founded in 2001 by Maria and Christian Rhomberg, is to open its first overseas club in Mainland China. KEE Shanghai opens this October in Shanghai at the city’s prestigious new heritage site Twin Villas, on 796 Huai Hai Road.

KEE is a private members’ club set in a truly unique, beautiful and intimate environment, for people who are interested in being part of a certain lifestyle which embraces the ultimate in art, music, food, wine and most importantly, people.

Although KEE is different things to different people, it has one uniting factor: it is a home to its members and is a place for modern people who are interesting, influential and fun.


KEE Shanghai will offer the same unique “salon” and dining environment that has proved such a huge success in Hong Kong, drawing a chic local and international following, which includes members of royal families, heads of state, renowned film directors and celebrities. International celebrity visitors include Jude Law, Mick Jagger, Ron Wood, Michael Jordan, Sting and Asian celebrities Michelle Yeo, Chau Yun Fat, Maggie Q, Wong Kar Wai and Hidetoshi Nakata.


Visitors to KEE Shanghai can expect rich fabrics and textures, antique furniture and collections of art from past centuries in rooms reminiscent of European salons, recalling an age that was known for its artistic decadence and intellectual conversation, much like the old Shanghai of the 1920s.


Beautifully restored to its previous grandeur, the 1921 Twin Villas offers the perfect setting for KEE Shanghai. The club, which is renowned in Hong Kong for its personal service and luxury ambience, will share the building with the Richemont Shanghai headquarters, sitting above the flagship stores for China of distinguished brands such as Alfred Dunhill and Vacheron Constantin.


Serene landscaped gardens lead visitors to the villas where they enter KEE either directly or choose to walk up the stunning wooden staircases with sunlight streaming through original stained-glass windows.  KEE Shanghai comprises a cosy, elegant brasserie style restaurant, an exquisite yet relaxing lounge and bar, both with outdoor balconies overlooking the gardens, and intimate rooms for private dining.  All-wood floors, high ceilings and French windows add wonderfully to the ambience of the club.


Set to become one of the finest restaurants in Shanghai, KEE Shanghai will offer a contemporary French and Mediterranean fine dining menu accompanied by an excellent wine selection.  In addition, there will also be high tea and Saturday/Sunday brunch as well as a Chinese banquet menu served in the private rooms and more casual Japanese –inspired and international-style tapas menu and sensational cocktails served from the bar.


In its short history, KEE private members club in Hong Kong has played host to a plethora of lifestyle events, which range from gourmet dinners featuring Michelin-starred chefs and the finest wines from across the globe. These include Dom Pérignon’s showcase event - the Seven Sensualities dinner, as well as champagne and wine pairing events for the likes of Krug, Veuve Clicquot and Gaja.


Fashion powerhouses along with emerging designers favour the venue for catwalk presentations or intimate trunk shows thanks to its stylish crowd and the elegant surrounds.  Art also runs through the veins of KEE private members club, and regular exhibitions and headline events such as Christie’s private viewing of priceless Monets as well as a gala dinner for Christie’s chairman Viscount David Lindley have taken place at the club in the past year.


KEE private members club has also been known to hold other unique events in the form of charity auctions, film screenings, and lunch talks on a diverse range of subjects.


Delightfully charming with a style of its own, there will similarly be no bounds to the happenings that will occur at KEE Shanghai.


KEE Shanghai is located at 796 Huai Hai Road Middle, Shanghai 200020, in the heart of the city’s business, shopping and entertainment area.  Phone: 86 21 3397 0888.  For more information on KEE visit
