    Creating a buzz

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 19/02/2019

    » Some years ago, I reviewed Colin McPhee's marvellous book, A House In Bali, about life and gamelan music (traditional Balinese music -- mainly percussive and driven by metallophones or gongs) in Bali during the 1930s. Published in 1947, the book details how a young man, after hearing some rare gamelan music on old records, journeys to Bali in 1929 to seek the music that will change his life. It is an enchanting book, well worth reading.

    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.
