The Dada Record: Adrian Wee

Hi, I am Adrian Wee. I DJ under the alter-ego of ‘wee.like.me’, a familiar name at the Poptart nights- a night that pays tribute to a spectrum of alternative rock music ranging from nostalgic grunge and punk to current British Invasion and Electro. I currently hosts Poptart every Wednesday, as well as POP/RE/TART, which takes a more electronic twist, monthly, at The Butter Factory.

BOOKMARK THIS!

Poptart Massive Midweek Mayhem happens every Wednesday, and POP/RE/TART happens every last Wednesday of the month at The Butter Factory.

Tenderoni by Chromeo
This is what happens when you have a couple of white guys doing Prince. The result? A mash of 80s synth flavoured Electro disco and funky-as-hell bass-lines. This always gets me embarrassingly shaking my butt.

Heinrich Maneuver by Interpol
An excellent first single from their new album. Heinrich Maneuver starts off by asking ‘how are things on the west coast?’, which is reported to be a song about an ex love residing on the opposite coast. But I’m very sure it’s Interpol’s tribute to people living in Tuas.

Foundations by Kate Nash
This track has been stuck in my Poptart playlist since I discovered Kate Nash last month. She’s been frequently compared with (and sometimes mistaken as) Lily Allen. Whatever, it’s a perfect track to end the night on a gleeful note.

Pogo by Digitalism
This track, to me, defines the rock influence on electronic music. Although there are no distorted guitars, the bass-line is so rock! This song could easily be a Bloc Party track, which was what I thought when I first heard it. This track fits into my nights perfectly when I transition from rock to Electro.

It’s Getting Boring By The Sea by Blood Red Shoes
Another two-piece I’m excited about. With a raw-energy-garage-punk and the sweet vocals of Laura-Mary Carter’s, this makes a great dancefloor mosh anthem and at the same time, it leaves a warm feeling in the tummy. I love moshing with a warm tummy, so this is definitely one of my favourites.
