Singapore (November 20, 2014)—Expo Av-Insync (EAI) recently provided full technical production for the first-ever Freq’ender dance festival in Singapore, specifying a Martin Audio MLA system for the two-day event.
Held at Infinite Studios and promoted by Limited Edition Concepts, Freq’ender welcomed more than 4,500 people throughout the weekend. The festival was split into two distinct days: the first (in conjunction with Halloween) was named Freq’show, which made way on Day 2 for Mekanika, produced by international Trance Festival brand, Godskitchen.
EAI kept the same rig in place for both days, with hangs of eight elements per side (plus a single MLD Downfill). The 12 MLX subs were ground-stacked in configurations of 2 + 4 + 4 + 2. In addition, the company supplied eight W8LM Mini line arrays and four WS218X subs as a DJ monitor system.
“With Expo AV’s experience, it was easy to get the best out of the MLA system, and the sound behaved superbly in the 18,000-square-foot sound stage,” commented Limited Edition Concepts’ director and co-founder, Godwin Pereira. “It was warm and non-intrusive, producing little in the way of ‘noise.’”
The event featured global acts covering electro, trance, house, techno and other genres, including Hot Chip, 2ManyDJs, GlowInthedark and Marco V, along with more than 20 live performers and dancers from Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia.
