Support analog music culture! Get ready for a day of live music, high fidelity tunes on wax, and vinyl crate digging through hundreds of used and new records, as The Analog Assembly returns for its signature vinyl trade fair and live music event at The Projector at Golden Mile Tower on Saturday, 20th February 2016 from 2pm onwards.
Building on the success of its launch in July 2015, The Analog Assembly’s second pop-up event will feature a vinyl trade fair for new and used records, a live acoustic performance by the lead singer of acoustic-folk band Hanging Up the Moon, Sean Lam, who previously fronted pioneer indie band Concave Scream, and an all- vinyl DJ set by local hip-hop stalwart and regionally acclaimed turntablist DJ Koflow.
Admission is free.
More details below:
The vinyl buy/sell/trade fair, The X∆ (“The X-Change”), will commence at 2pm, and will feature hundreds of used and vinyl records available for sale, across a wide range of music genres including rock, blues, jazz, hip-hop, electronica, indie, reggae, and classical. The Analog Assembly has curated an eclectic mix of vinyl record vendors, including established local vinyl dealers, local record labels, as well a host of individual vinyl sellers putting up their own collections for sale.
At 5.30pm, Sean Lam, lead singer of Hanging Up The Moon, will be performing a stripped-down live acoustic set at the venue. Sean will perform some of the signature acoustic-folk tunes from the band’s critically acclaimed albums, “The Biggest Lie In The World” and “Immaterial”, which will also be made available for sale at the event. Having played sold-out shows at The Esplanade and The Substation, Sean promises an evening of quiet introspection.
From 6.30pm till 8pm, grab a beer or a cocktail and watch the sun set while catching DJ Koflow, local hip-hop stalwart and regionally acclaimed turntablist, spin an all-vinyl hip-hop set at the new outdoor bar, The Great Escape, located on the 5th floor car park of Golden Mile Tower. DJ Koflow is a Singapore DMC turntablist champion, and has worked his turntable skills alongside international acts including Kanye West, Nas, Jazzy Jeff, Missy Elliot and the Black Eyed Peas. One would not miss this opportunity to watch DJ Koflow showcase his turntablist skills.
For those who are kicking themselves on having missed earlier screenings, the 2016 Oscar-nominated documentary feature “Amy” returns to The Projector for a screening alongside The Analog Assembly pop-up event at 9pm.
Despite just two albums to her name Amy Winehouse is one of the biggest music icons in British history. With a voice oft described as a combination of Billy Holiday, Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan, Amy Winehouse was a pop star with soul; a once in two generational musical talent whose appeal crossed cultural and demographic boundaries. But while her music made her a star, her chaotic personal life stole headlines. A moving yet controversial portrait of the late 15-time Grammy nominee Amy Winehouse, the film was recently nominated for Best Documentary Feature for the 2016 Oscars despite the boycott by the Winehouse family of what her father claims to be an 'unbalanced' portrayal of her life. Capturing the meteoric rise and tragic fall of the once-in-a-lifetime talent as well as bringing out 'the worst in a lot of people in her life', director Asif Kapadia, also behind award-winning documentary SENNA, explains that the film is really about those who were privy to her many troubles but 'did nothing about it'. The screening will be ticketed, with tickets priced at S$13 per ticket, or at S$11 at concessionary rates.

The Projector revives two cinema halls and the 5th floor foyer of the historic Golden Theatre as an independent cinema and creative platform that brings together a great selection of films, one-of-a-kind events, versatile spaces and delectable fare. At the foyer, the Golden Bar serves draft beer, wine, coffee, and a comprehensive menu of treats and snacks. The new carpark bar/outdoor bar, The Great Escape, which opened late last year, has become home to crazy post-screening afterparties.
