SPLASH Volume 8 to Make Summer Culminate with a Bang

July 13, 2013 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Soak up the sun at the truly amazing Splash at Hard Rock Hotel pool party. Kiss the summer with unbridled passion for world-class music.

ANTMSPLASH Volume 8 is to hit Macau with another glittering line-up of world class DJs.  EDM music label’s leading DJ’s Borgore, Junior Sanchez and Datsik, are three of the most engaging and forward-thinking DJs on the international clubbing scene and will  grace the second instalment of SPLASH 2013 on Saturday July 20, 2013. With their unique EDM sound signature and their knack for keeping any party alive, the trio is poised to ensure SPLASH at Hard Rock Hotel stays true to its reputation as the coolest poolside extravaganza in Asia.

In addition, SPLASH Volume 8 will host Fox International Channel’s open casting call for its second season of Asia’s Next Top Model, the Asian adaptation of Tyra Bank’s long-running smash hit America’s Next Top Model. While the thumping beat and adrenalin rush are on at the poolside party, candidates are welcome to join the open casting call and compete for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be one of the 18 models in Asia competing for the title of Asia’s Next Top Model. The first season of the show, launched last year, aired on STAR World (Now TV channel 528) and other major Channels of Fox, was a phenomenal success across Asia. This season, the program promises to be even more exciting, with new shooting locations in Asia and A-list fashion personalities joining the judging panel. Asian supermodel Nadya Hutagalung, host of last season, will return to take charge of the show. The winner will be awarded an exclusive modeling contract with London-based Storm Model Management, a cash prize, and also the opportunity to be the cover girl of Harper Bazaar.

SPLASH Volume 8 and Volume 9 follow on the heels of SPLASH Volume 7, which was held in mid-June and drew a full house dancing to the brilliant sets by a starry cast of world-renowned DJs provided brilliant sets. While SPLASH Volume 8 is set to rock Macau again, City of Dreams, the flagship integrated resort of Melco Crown Entertainment Limited (“Melco Crown Entertainment”) (SEHK: 6883) (Nasdaq: MPEL), has already geared up for the last episode of the three-part poolside party series.

Since it debuted in Macau three years ago, SPLASH has become an all-time-favorite for the most discerning partygoers in Macau, Hong Kong, mainland China and across Asia, sending more than 10,000 people into a veritable frenzy of excitement in the remarkable poolside party series. Mr. Sunny Yu, Senior Vice President, Entertainment & Projects of Melco Crown Entertainment, said: “City of Dreams is bringing in the best DJs to Splash Volume 8, which will now also feature one of the most popular TV shows into the party. Splash mixed with Fox Channel’s search of Asia’s Next Top Model will make this pool party a dream come true, and THE party to go to, reinforcingCity of Dreams and Cotai being the entertainment hub in Asia.”

“SPLASH at Hard Rock Hotel has proved a hugely popular event that appeals to the large and ever growing population of young and sophisticated entertainment seekers in Hong Kong, Macau, mainland China and across Asia. These people are increasingly looking up to City of Dreams and Macau as the ultimate destination for first-class entertainment, and we will keep up our effort to make City of Dream continue to rock!” Mr. Yu added.

On August 17, SPLASH Volume 9 will hit the stunning Hard Rock Hotel, treating partygoers to another wave of absolute awesomeness. As an event held during the peak of the summer, SPLASH Volume 9 will no doubt make SPLASH stay true to its reputation as the coolest poolside extravaganza in the whole of Asia. It is expected to pull a massive crowd, set to tunes by DJ geniuses and frequent chart-toppers Myon & Shane 54 and EDX, who respectively come from Hungary and Switzerland and have solid experience in performing for international crowds around the globe. 

Headlining for Volume 8 


Borgore, an Israeli dubstep DJ-cum-producer known as the enfant terrible of bass culture, will invigorate SPLASH Volume 8 at Hard Rock Hotel with his trademark robust, interactive live performance that has turned him into one of the most popular figures in the electric dance music (EDM) scene. The founder of Buygore Records and the former drummer of the Israeli heavy metal band Shabira, Borgore incorporates triplet drum patterns with heavy metal influences. His characteristic bass-in-your-face frenzy is one of the many factors that have won him more than 790,000 fans on Facebook. The 25-year-old has released a variety of tracks, including the 2012 single Decisions, with back-up vocals provided by American singing sensation Miley Cyrus. Now Borgore is all geared up to give SPLASH Volume 8 at Hard Rock Hotel an electrifying performance. 

Junior Sanchez

At age 15, American DJ prodigy Junior Sanchez was already deejaying at some of the hottest underground clubs in New York and perfecting his craft as a producer. The New Jersey native’s ever-evolving and forward-thinking style has attracted attention from musicians spanning all music genres. Over the course of his exciting career, he has produced and remixed material for some of the biggest artists in the industry, including Madonna, Shakira, Jamiroquai, Giorgio Moroder, and Gorillaz. He has also produced a plethora of massive tracks, including the recently released No. 1 Beatport chart toppers Where You Are and I Believe in. Currently Junior is starting his own record label Brobot to be distributed by SIZE Records. 


The third but no less important figure to take centre stage at SPLASH Volume 8 at Hard Rock Hotel is Datsik, another dubstep genius. Growing up a hardcore rap fan, the British Columbia native exploded on the dubstep scene five years ago with his future-tech dance-floor detonators. He has tasted chart success numerous times, including racking up a series of seven No. 1 tracks on Beatport, the world’s largest DJ and electronic music community. Of late, he has produced a dozen new tracks for his debut full-length album Vitamin D on Dim Mak Records, one of LA’s hottest imprints that always stays one step ahead of the game in the music industry. At SPLASH Volume 8 at Hard Rock Hotel, partygoers can expect hip-hop, the bass from electronic dance tracks, and the roots of UK garage and drum & bass thrown into the mix of Datsik’s unique dubstep sounds. 

Headlining for Volume 9

Myon & Shane 54

Hailing from Hungary, trance duo Myon & Shane 54 are a phenomenal success in the international dance music scene, widely recognized for their unparalleled skill at conjuring up unforgettable mash-ups, taking live sets to a new level through their unique song-blending approach. They are no stranger to chart success, with accolades including numerous Beatport number ones and consistent rankings among DJ Mag‘s Top 100 DJs. Their weekly radio showInternational Departures is one of the most popular music podcast, while their extensive tour diary International Departures TV offers a fascinating low-down to the well-travelled duo’s life on the road.


EDX, a.k.a. Maurizio Colella, has put his mark on the EDM (electronic dance music) scene with his melodic yet bouncy style and impressive list of remixes. As one of the most requested remixers, the Italian-born, Switzerland-based DJ-cum-producer has headlined the world’s finest clubs and performed to crowds of more than 60,000 in dozens of cities, from New York to Sydney to Taipei. His remixes have topped various DJ charts, and he has recently launched the weekly radio show “No Xcuses” on SIRIUS XM’s Electric Area Channel.
