Meet the Westsiders
In a land far far away from all the hubbub of the city lies the west. In the Wild Wild West, you can get cozy with feathered friends in Singapore’s first and only bird park, then put on a jacket or two to beat the heat in Snow City or the ice rink!
RIIDEM is a music producer who recently secured a distribution deal with Universal Music Singapore. His love for music started back in 2001 when he got a hand-me-down walkman from his older brother. He also used to religiously tune in to “Rigby’s Top 40” on the radio. The stars aligned on his 12th birthday when his parents gifted him a Casio keyboard, and thus began his musical journey. Heavily influenced by Timbaland and Pharrell Williams, RIIDEM has since gone on to become an established songwriter, mixing engineer and an artist in his own right.
