Shelhiel x Zulamran Hilmi
THURSDAY 7 NOVEMBER 2019
For the past three years, Future Rising has touched down in 14 cities across the globe, creating unique experiences and creations that empower and celebrate the very best new talent in music and design from around the world. Following the European edition in Spring 2019, Future Rising returns for five one-off audio-visual collaborations, touching down in Guangzhou, Bangkok, Goa, Kuala Lumpur and Brisbane to explore what’s happening in each host city RIGHT HERE! RIGHT NOW!
Future Rising Kuala Lumpur brings together two artists making serious waves in Malaysia's underground scenes. Shelhiel, an electronic pop artist, DJ and producer with an eccentric edge will collide with future-focused visual artist Zulamran Hilmi, to co-create a unique audio-visual show premiered for the very first time at W Kuala Lumpur.
Artist, singer/songwriter, DJ and producer - Shelhiel is Malaysia's much-hyped musical polymath making waves in English and Mandarin electronic pop scenes. He's been making his name through genre-defying sounds and mystical creative vision, and when he's not opening up for FKJ, Tennyson, Hyokoh and Crystal Castles, you'll find Shelhiel behind-the-scenes, whether producing for internationally renowned acts such as Penny Tsai and SHIO, or on a remix tip.
From a young age, Zulamran Hilmi would spend hours creating illustrations inspired by comics and sci-fi films, and his passion for art, combined with his love of music naturally lead him to pursue a career in the music and design industries. His multi-disciplinary work has earned him recognition for art direction and visuals for Adam Kasturi, Yuna, Killeur Calculateur and Joe Flizzow, while his musical explorations have evolved through his co-founded Botanic Records label with Tim Sharp of 'Into The Blue', plus CLUB NIGHT and Cahaya event series' exploring the juxtaposition between art and music.
