Hot Shots: Highlights from TRANSMISSION, the hottest hip-hop night in Singapore

Some nights you just don’t forget. The G-SHOCK ORIGINS TRANSMISSION party is one of them.

G-SHOCK stood at the center of it all as hip-hop music fueled the night alongside local talents who thrived under the spotlight.

The Japanese watch brand has cemented itself as a cultural icon that connects creators in the pursuit of art, music, style, and sport. From the music, the performances, right down to the energy reverberating throughout Canvas club – there was no doubt the party delivered on all fronts.

Aside from performing an impressive set alongside Fariz Jabba, Yung Raja showcased a talent for getting the crowd up on their feet from start to finish. Let’s just say that we’re looking at a bright future ahead for the young rapper. As long as he’s up on stage with a mic, he’s got everyone’s attention.

It was raining freebies hourly. Four lucky party-goers walked away with the golden ticket, which entitled them to a free G-SHOCK DW-5600 watch.

LOCAL HIP-HOP TALENTS SET THE STAGE ABLAZE

The night’s stellar lineup featuring Axel Brizzy, Fariz Jabba, Yung Raja, Mean, Wheelsmith, and DJs Prav and XG, didn’t disappoint. The crowd-pumping performances came to a fever pitch when Yung Raja snuck in a surprise performance of his debut single, Mustafa. Surely one of our favorite moments that night.
