Escape finds a new sunset home…
Escape was first created by Kaiser Waldon and some buddies as a sunset to midnight party at Sydney’s iconic Manly Beach around seven years ago. He had already had substantial experience with Bali before this, and the dream always had been to bring the show to the island.
“I teamed up with Scott Callaghan when I moved to Bali two years ago and Escape made its first landing at Jenja, which was an awesome Sunday night session,” says Kaiser to the beat. “However, something was missing, it was only half of the true Escape, half of what we are about.” They did another season at Red Ruby later, and then back to Jenja, but they felt they wanted to give people more than just a late night experience!
“So we took a break and waited to find a venue that fitted perfectly with our Escape ethos,” Kaiser’s partner in Escape, Scotty Cal continues. “A venue that has an amazing sunset experience, open air, can stay open till late and is a world of its own.”
After La Brisa built the second part of their venue, the big deck and pool, it was basically a no brainer and they started speaking to the venue and found that they really connected with the management. “This was super important in enabling us to deliver the best experience to our friends and family!” enthuses Kaiser.
Things moved pretty quickly from then and before you could say, “Canggu’s gone crazy!” the boys had already announced the opening party for Wednesday, 10th of April, 2019.
Yes, you read that correctly. “We are focusing on a mid-week celebration with Bali sunsets, dancing in the open air, watching the waves, feeling the sea breeze, making new friends and re-connecting with old ones! Escaping your week with a mid-week oasis of all of these experiences.”
According to Kaiser, this is all underpinned by Balearic sunset melodies and a really big step in the evolution of the Escape brand. “Once the sun sets we connect with our more primal instincts with the big four to the floor, core groovy house and melodic techno sound that encourages you to really break out of your shell!”
Kaiser continues, “This is for you guys, we get to show you a wider aperture, a deeper experience than our previous parties. There’s nothing like this on the island at the moment and it’s so true to our brand that we are blessed to be able to offer and contribute this to the Island of the Gods, adding it to the already high quality events and music scene here on Bali!”
Get set for the launch of Escape at La Brisa on Wednesday, April 10.
