Acclaimed Japanese DJ Toshio Matsura has a knack for taking old retro tracks into the modern era. Jon chats with him about remixing everything from Earth, Wind and Fire to Astor Piazzolla, and tries to find out what “Deep House, Broken Beat” really means…
Harlem Globe Trotters
For 82 years, the Harlem Globetrotters have thrilled audiences around the world. Through a combination of athleticism, theatre and comedy, they have played more than 20,000 exhibition games with a 98.4% winning streak. Our intrepid co hosts Sheik Haikel and Cheston Harder decide to take up the challenge and head down to the courts.
Asia Uncut’s very own co host Sheikh Haikel joins Jon for a chat at the Singapore Flyer. After winning The Asia Bagus Grand Championship in 1991, this “phat” rapper-writer-broadcaster-cum-actor has established himself throughout Singapore and Malaysia.
A descendent of the first African-American singer to appear on the New York Metropolitan Opera, and son of Bobby McFerrin Jr, best known for his 1998 hit song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”, Taylor McFerrin is carving out his own niche in the music industry, and is redefining the concept of the one-man show.
Jazz comedy legend Earl Okin has played for an eclectic audience that ranges from the King and Queen of Sweden, to Sasha Baron Cohen aka Borat. Okin tells Sheik Haikel his stories about jazz, performing, and his love of suits.
Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner
Asia Uncut and co host Colby Miller travel to the Mecca of the movie industry: Hollywood. In the hunt for celebrities, they stumble upon Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner, who talk about their latest romantic comedy, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.
Jon welcomes Kris Dayanti – Indonesia’s highest paid and most successful singer – to Singapore. Starting with her first album at 12, this Indonesian icon admits she was first paid with a chocolate bar.
