Rawjak your weekend

Hasnor Sidik AKA Mr. Has AKA Rawjak Records is the Singaporean DJ that brought some of the most serious underground club sounds to his city. After spending four years as the music director with Lo & Behold, Mr. Has is currently the music director for Asia Pacific W Hotels, responsible for the what’s new/next in music, fashion and design. Beyond Singapore, his genre-bending sets have given him spots on international decks from Bali to Berlin, Ibiza to London, New York and more. Also known for his ineffable style with fashion, Hasnor has collaborated with designer brands like Prada & Dior and is also on Mr Porter’s Style Council.
