W Hotels Elevates Live Electronic Music in Asia-Pacific

W Hotels, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s global portfolio of over 30 brands, launched W PRESENTS in the Asia-Pacific region, expanding
the global series of live electronic concerts which kicked off in North America in March this year with showcases at W Toronto, W Seattle, W Nashville, W Philadelphia, W Montreal, and W Aspen. The series puts a spotlight on electronic music talents handpicked by Leah Chisholm (LP Giobbi), Global Director of Music for W Hotels and has featured artists including, Channel Tres, DJ_Dave, Neil Frances, Aluna, HVNLEE, Joshua Lang, and DJ Gee Xella.

W PRESENTS, cultivated as immersive private showcases for guests and locals alike to experience, is the latest example of the brand’s commitment to inclusivity and support of musical talent. The series sets the stage with performances in W Living Rooms (W Hotels iconic lobby/lounge) and experiential spaces including the iconic Sound Suites in-suite recording studios at select W Hotels worldwide.

The Asia-Pacific W PRESENTS series premiered with W Osaka Presents on November 18 with an opening set by popular Japanese actors, models, and DJ’s SHUZO & YAMATO, followed by Italian headliners Giolì & Assia, a popular DJ and music producer duo known for their indie techno pop sound that finds beauty in the contrasts of light and dark, hope and despair, and classical and contemporary. The pair performed a live mix of powerful melodies, electric vocals, and the sonorous tones of their signature handpans.

“By uniquely sparking the vision of some of the brightest talents in the music industry, W PRESENTS provides a limitless platform for up-and coming and established artists alike to channel their creative energy into their craft,” said LP Giobbi, Global Director of Music, W Hotels. “We are very excited to not only shine a light on these incredible musicians, but also to continue to create unforgettable experiences
and authentic connections with music lovers around the world.”

“W PRESENTS is pushing the boundaries for greater possibilities by showcasing the latest, live music acts, connecting them to audiences
in W Living Rooms across Asia-Pacific,” said John Toomey, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Marriott International Asia Pacific. “LP Giobbi has curated some of the most talented acts in the electronic music world, and we are excited to showcase them in W Hotels for audiences across the region.”

From live performance series to professional, hotel suite recording studios and a global music festival series, W Hotels has remained at the forefront of music for decades, serving as both an arbiter of talent and an influential connector in the space. Following the kickoff of W PRESENTS in Osaka, the excitement will continue in Shanghai with Japanese powerhouse DJ Qrion headlining with her signature lush synth textures at W Shanghai Presents on November 25.

“True to W Hotels steadfast passion for music and innovation, we’re excited to showcase both emerging talents and renowned music artists who will be staying, creating, and performing at W Hotels,” said Jennie Toh, Vice President of Luxury Brand Marketing, Brand Management and Communications, Marriott International Asia Pacific. “W PRESENTS is set to bring to life the city’s soundscapes, and we are looking forward to welcoming all music fans at the stunning W Shanghai – The Bund.”
