DARKSIDE

After the well-received inaugural The Gathering with Empire of the Sun, Forefront Asia has announced that the second edition will bring to our shores musical duo, DARKSIDE on Sunday, 6th April at *SCAPE (The Ground Theatre).

DARKSIDE is the collaboration of electronic musician Nicolas Jaar, and Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist Dave Harrington. The duo is known for the intense pulsing baseline beats and hollowed synthesizer accompaniments, coupled with supplementary notes contributed by instruments ranging from a guitar to Harrington’s falsetto.

Tickets priced at SGD65, are now available at Event Clique.
