Light & Sound Bath with Sabrina Gricourt by Debbie Chia

LSB.jpg

Had a wonderful opportunity to host a Light & Sound Bath with Amir Kadir in town with two extra lamps at the Freunde von Freunde space. This time, I asked Sabrina Gricourt of Sonic Body to be my musical guest and it worked out wonderfully as a first collaboration. Sabrina is doing some really great work in this realm, check her out!

Ladies of the Dark at Kilo Lounge, Singapore by Debbie Chia

Played at the excellent Kilo Lounge for their Ladies of the Dark series while 5 months preggers. I wasn't too fazed because I've heard about Olympians competing while pregnant and M.I.A being on stage on her due date! Anyway, I was 12-weeks pregnant while DJing an intensive schedule in Mauritius and that was worse because I couldn't really tell people, my hormones were a wreck and I was feeling nauseous half of the time. I actually had a tear of relief when I played my last song. This time though was different. My friends said I should have worn something to show off my belly bump, but it felt more comfortable to me to be "business as usual". Anyway, t'was a great night and super thankful for the opportunity!

Light & Sound Bath by Debbie Chia

It feels like it's been a while since the previous light show / Dream Machine in London. Well, each session does take quite a bit out of me! This session will be the last one at the wonderful Your Space (they are moving out to new premises), and I have also decided to fly solo with a new sequence of both sound and light to incorporate all that I have learnt since. I am also preparing cacao in 2 forms to assist the journeying before and after. It's going to be tightly limited as I focus on delivering my best to those present. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Hope to see you there!

RBMA Alumni Mix by Debbie Chia

Was asked to do an alumni mix for RBMA and of course I said yes. I know there has been some controversy surrounding the brand, but I thought about all the good times I've had, opportunities I've been given and friends I've made through this initiative and I still wanted to be grateful for that.

Deadbeat:
Deadbeat is one Scott Monteith, an adopted Montrealer who has been releasing his own special blend of dub laden, minimal electronics since 2000 for labels such as Cynosure, Intr_version, Revolver, and Scape. 

Deadbeat has performed at some of the world's most respected festivals, including Barcelona's Sonar, Berlin's Transmediale, and Montreal's own Mutek. Whether crafting quirky, not-quite-dancefloor techno, or rumbling digital dub, Scott continually strives to create music that honors the past beyond empty tribute or cultural appropriation, by infusing the digital tools of the present with a little of the magic known as human imperfection.
