Born in Punta Gorda, Florida, the 28-year-old cyclist took up the sport at the age of five, deciding to compete professionally at the age of 16. After racing for USA Cycling and attempting to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games, she was approached by the Thai national team and decided to race with them. Carr had previously won the gold medal for the Women's BMX race category at the 2014 Asian Games held in Incheon, South Korea, as well as having competed in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

    The rise of Thailand's techno queen

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 08/06/2018

    » From her humble beginnings as a rural country girl from Nakhon Ratchasima and working jobs in factories and IT to becoming one of Thailand's most prominent and leading female underground techno DJs today, Seephrai Mungphanklang, better known as Nakadia, was first exposed to the techno scene during her first trip to Europe in 2002, when she stepped inside a German club and saw German music producer Marusha perform. With a love for partying and techno music, it was this moment where her friend and manager Sebastian Lehmann encouraged her to become a DJ. She decided to learn the craft, buying vinyls and turntables, where she eventually started her career by DJ'ing at Koh Samui before moving to Berlin, Germany where she would ultimately perform all over the world to become the global sensation she is today. She previously performed for one night at Violett in Thong Lor back in May 25, and has recently been featured in Mixmag's latest episode of the Global Dancefloor documentary series, which focuses on three female DJs (Nakadia, Mendy Indigo and X0809) pushing the techno scene in Thailand. The techno queen is now set to embark on a European summer tour later this year which includes playing sets at world-famous gigs such as Elrow Ibiza and Tomorrowland, becoming the first Thailand DJ to play at the prestigious event.
