Asia Uncut’s Line up this week – See Episode 12 on Star World
Filmmaker Royston Tan
has won many regional film festival awards and is one of TIME Magazine’s “Top 20 Asian Heroes” but all he wishes for, is a fried chicken meal with the local censorship officials, Jon picks the bones on this one.
Legendary DJ Gilles Peterson
has the Midas’ touch, catapulting the careers of Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen and Erykah Badu, and has a music festival stamped with his name. Jon steps up his street cred as the ‘King of Kool’ visits.
Sheikh catches up on the grim reality of street busking with Low Intensity
, and hustles for these freewheeling song strummers at the price of a lesson: keep your hat close, but keep the hustlers closer.
Musician George Duke
is the pinnacle of funk, having collaborated with the late Frank Zappa and having his own eclectic brand of R&B. Watch Duke jam some pink keys while Sheikh gets in sync with the funk.
The brainchild of fashion label Hansel Jo Soh
likes her guys to have clean undies but dirty sneakers. Jon tries to cross-stitch her mind with Asia Uncut’s most complex question yet.
Chris Garver & Kirby Lian Previously guested on Asia Uncut
