DJ Bobby Obby Obby
Multi-hyphenate Bobby Luo (aka DJ Bobby Obby Obby / pingpongpanda ) is known to many as a designer, decorator, nightclub owner, retailer, party organiser and DJ. Formerly a set designer for Zouk Singapore in the ‘90s, he also co-founded and ran the now-defunct nightclub, The Butter Factory. Today, he owns SUPER FREAK boutique, and organises (and occasionally DJs) his own alternative queer pop-up parties across the +65 like Mismatch (house), Yum Yum Disco Dong (disco) and Baby Boy (R&B). In addition, he is also a member of the Vogue In Progress collective, which organises ballroom events.
A street dancer turned DJ, Bolo first started learning street dance back in 2007. As his interest in hip hop and funk music deepened over the years, Bolo finally decided to try his hands at DJ-ing in 2012.
As a DJ from the street dance community, Bolo has been given many opportunities to spin for dance events locally and overseas. To date, he has made a name for himself in China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia, Thailand, India and of course, Singapore.
FAKYU is a hip hop dance duo based in Singapore and comprises of Fazil (FA) & Kyung (KYU). They formed the crew back in 2013 and since then have consistently joined freestyle battles and competed in major choreography showcase competitions in Singapore.
@houseofkasicvnt debuted in 2018, and currently consists of nine house members, including Founding Father Irzie Kasicvnt. The house was built to provide support and a chosen family to dancers, with the hope to push each of them to their greatest heights in their talent. The fashion philosophy that the house holds onto is that authenticity is one’s greatest asset: when you are Kasicvnt, you walk in the name of truly who you are. The house also aims to perform and teach the elements of voguing while educating people about ballroom culture.
Melise x Timo
Timothy (Boogie Tim) and Melise first met as popping course mates under the tutelage of Robin back in 2009. They joined their very first popping battle event as a duo at NTU Funk Jam’s very first popping edition in 2012, and eventually emerged champions in its 2017 edition. Since then, they have been actively participating in local and international dance events. Taking on more teaching roles in recent years, they are inspired to spread the love of dance to the next generation of dancers.
A well-seasoned emcee with over 10 years of experience in event emceeing, Samuel-Roy (also known as Samuroy) is the man on the mic to keep the party going. Well versed in emceeing for numerous street dance competitions and battles, he’s no stranger to bringing energy and hype, no matter the crowd.
