    The co-working movement

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 10/08/2018

    » Shared workplaces or co-working spaces, have changed the way people work and collaborate with each other, offering flexibility, opportunities, networking and even relaxation in ways a traditional office cannot. There is no doubt that there has been an abundant amount of such communal spaces in Thailand (look no further than our cover story on co-working spaces a few issues ago), which means that various start-ups and businesses have begun to change the way they operate. JustCo, headquartered in Singapore, is a leading provider of co-working spaces and opened their first co-working centre in Thailand in May. Their first space, which is two-storeyed and is within the AIA Sathorn Tower office building, has attracted potential clients with their vibrant setting, casual and cosy ambience and creative lighting designs. We chat with Kong Wan Sing, founder and CEO of JustCo, on why such spaces are in demand and expansion plans.

    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.

    Sound hounds

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 24/08/2018

    » Bangkok's underground electronic music scene has been rapidly growing in recent years. There are various events focusing on different music genres which include house, disco, techno as well as the subgenres within, which there weren't as many a few years back. Western influences have changed the music landscape and conversely, Thai acts have begun to take inspiration from their style to apply on their craft. We chat with six Bangkok-based DJs and acts, artists who are putting in the sweat to expand and gain exposure in the underground music scene. These DJs have made a significant impact on the dance music community in recent years and Guru feels the need to give you, especially you who love the underground dance music scene, a proper introduction.
