DJ Backslash (Kesh)
BackslashBeing the headliner at Poppy Garden for the past 5 years, Kesh a.k.a Backslash has been through many terrains in the entertainment world gaining more momentum through sheer consistency in his sets. Having the influences of early blues, rock, funk, hip hop, industrial, house and drum & bass, he's deemed to be the most versatile amongst DJ's in any situation. Being actively involved in the art of entertainment is just too appropriate for him after 14 years of deck duties around the Asian region.

He's a music producer and recording artiste for local Malaysian drum and bass label "Take Off" and Loops Collective. He produced the dance-floor filler track 'The Way I Feel' on the recent "Extended" volume 2 Drum and Bass compilation, which also featured big names like SUV and Utah Jazz. Nevertheless, producing Hip Hop was also a goal and success story for him and local rapper MC Samir. The hit single 'R U Ready' which they produced alongside R&B singer Damien 'Shorty Soul' was on radio waves throughout the country in no time. This was all made in collaboration to his solo effort and release of his Reinvented LP back in 2006. Backslash has also played in clubs alongside internationally renowned DJs such as Cash Money, DJ Yoda, Jon Carter a.k.a Junior Cartier, Roger Sanchez and Asian Dub Foundation (UK) just to name a few.

His musical styles in his sets consist of randomly selected genres from R&B to Ol' Skool, Hip Hop to G-Funk, Crunk to Dancehall, House to Breakbeat and Drum n' Bass accompanied by Guest MC's. With generous servings of pure urban and commercial tunes with the added touch of pure turntablism paraphernalia to his sets, you would love to watch this DJ in action. Surging energy by the abundance to the forefront of the dance-floor is what you're going to expect from him at his gigs. Currently adopting residency at The Poppy Collection, Backslash is set to entertain and bring the larger audience together every time the occasion arises. It's regular Soul Seduction signature nights in Poppy Garden every Fridays and Saturdays, is known to be one of the biggest Hip Hop and R&B parties in Kuala Lumpur and still holds strong till this very day.
