SYDNEY, April 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bigo Live, the Singapore-headquartered livestreaming platform, together with Razer, the world's leading lifestyle brand for gamers, are proud to bring the highly successful Southeast Asian cloud clubbing to party goers down under.
The first of its kind, highly anticipated cloud clubbing sets are expected to bring some relief and entertainment to the mundane lockdown routine that both Australians and New Zealanders are experiencing now. Popular homegrown DJ, M4Sonic will spin for the first time via livestream on 24 April.
Eager party goers can tune in for free via the Bigo Live app on 24 April from 9PM, Sydney time. Through technology, viewers will be able to connect instantly with thousands of others in real time with a single purpose -- to enjoy music together. Popular electronic DJ M4Sonic who is best known for his viral rap, "the Fox (What does the fox say)" co-produced with Stargate, is expected to open the set.

As a special treat, both M4Sonic and Razer's guest DJ, EKO will appear via the "line" feature on Bigo Live at 10PM, to do a mesh-up lasting an hour.
"In times like this, people tend to feel down and helpless. We hope to liven up people's spirits through cloud clubbing. Over the past few weeks, we were able to bring enjoyment to over 1.3m online viewers in Southeast Asia and we hope to bring similar joy and entertainment to our fellow Australian and New Zealander friends," Justine Xiao, Country Manager for Australia and New Zealand says.
