    Back in da club

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 14/09/2018

    » Attention, party people and night owls! Bored of the same old venues week after week? Wanna break the monotony from your usual hangout hotspots? Wish you had more choices rather than the usual clubs around Sukhumvit, RCA or Khao San? Fear not, Guru is here! I went around the Big Mango to find the newest clubs that are sure to keep your night full of dancing and drinking (responsibly)... for a fresh change.


    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.


    Concert peeps

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 16/02/2018

    » Concerts are awesome. Here at Guru, we have been to a fair amount of live shows of our favourite artists and bands, despite the ridiculously expensive tickets. And with every concert we attend, we see and meet the same kind of people. From the fans that seem to know the lyrics of every song to the ones who just can't seem to put their phones down as they record every moment of the show. We took the time to list our favourite (or for some, least favourite) types of concertgoers in Thailand. All in good fun.


    The sound effect

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 08/09/2017

    » With the number of independent films being made and an increasing number of recording artists taking the leap into the unknown without a label, knowledge about sound and how and where to best capture it becomes key. Luckily you're in the right country. Thailand is a production hub for Southeast Asia when it comes to film and now even more so, music. So, if you've written music for a video, a movie, a music album or you've got this song in your head that you always dreamed of recording... where do you go to turn such far-fetched notes into reality? You could of course do it yourself and start off at home! All you'd need is a condenser mic, a laptop and a few other bits of hardware (e.g. an audio interface, headphones, a MIDI keyboard) and software (Logic Pro or Ableton are some of many) and you'd be well on your way. Or you could go to the professionals, who would have all the gear at your disposal as well as the know-how to see your visions turn into reality. We decided to investigate some of the city's existing recording studios to see what they have to offer in the way of making music.


    Notes from Bangkok

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 02/06/2017

    » This week, we're bringing you some musical notes through the likes of Bangkok's hottest -- in our most humble opinion -- singer-songwriters. Because in the age of digital, sometimes it's sweeter to go back to analogue. It's nice to appreciate where music came from not so long ago... It ain't just about the bashing of thumbs on laptops or the scratching of vinyls, you know? It's also about the strumming of guitar strings, the hitting of plastic and leather and the sound of a larynx voicing notes that came from somewhere close to the beat of a human heart! Yes, besides becoming Asia's hub for electronic music, Bangkok's equally also driving some of the slightly more natural sounds that continue to resonate with our musical souls. And we seem to have some pretty skilled lyricists on our turf too. Check these guys out before they blow up. Whoops, some of them already have!

You're welcome.


    Turnt up

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 12/05/2017

    » For a while EDM has been the centre of focus for armies of festival-goers and it's still a definite staple of the music diet here in Thailand. However, other genres of electronic music such as deep house and techno are swiftly gaining armies of loyal listeners here as well. The magic behind this growth is rooted in the strong bonds of togetherness their events create, along with the super laid back atmosphere of Thailand. Now, marry those concepts to an explosion of performances, events and shows happening almost weekly in Bangkok and you have an unbeatable music scene built upon a world class tourist destination -- not to mention it's cheaper here too. If you love dancing, meeting new people and partying in a chilled and relaxed environment, then it's time for you to get involved. There are many to list and they all deserve credit, but let's take a look at a few of Thailand's household names in house and techno that are involved with organising a good time near you.


    Bangkok's lyrical power

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 24/02/2017

    » Electronic dance music is great and all, but sometimes we feel somewhat disconnected when we listen to it. After all, a lot of the time, words -- our primary mode of expression as humans -- are missing. Music is music -- one of the greatest gifts of humankind and a whole language in itself -- but where would it be without the words?
