I am very honored to have been invited to play at Club Triangle in Osaka Japan. I’ve played in Japan a few times but I’ve never been to any other city then Tokyo and in contrast to that city’s workaholic lifestyle Osaka’s inhabitants are so much more laid back. Right in the heart of Osaka’s downtown district is Club Triangle. This 3 floor venue blasts everything from underground to hip hop to drum n bass on its massive sound system. DJ wise selectah’s such as Rebel Mc, DJ Zinc and Laurent Garnier have graced the club’s decks. DJ Toyo – Club Triangle’s manager booked me to play on Friday night and even though the crowd was a lot different than what I am used to (it was a house/techno night) I still am very honored to have been invited by Toyo to represent Thailand and the Dubway crew over in Osaka. I reckon a lot of the stuff that I play nowadays isn’t that much dub step and more on the garage tip, it certainly did go down well with the ravers inside the club on that night. To top that I was joined by an army of my close friends, many of whom I met in Bangkok ages ago. We all got niced up on the two free bottles of Jack Daniels that Toyo kindly supplied us with. If y’all want to see the madness I uploaded some pictures on my facebook so please feel free to check out what went down on the frosty February night 🙂 I also want to big up DJ Hiroo (oyampan), Quotaroo, Mami and Nobu, Fum and Ken, Naru and Fumi, Hiro, DJ Toyo, DJ Tuttle, Fat Boy, Galaxy Gallery Crew and all the wonderfull peeps I met in Osaka. BIG UPS TO Y’ALL!

Also my Thai/Jap expat friends who run DUDE mag just uploaded this Japanese version of my interview. Big ups to Ken and all crew at DUDE MAG 🙂

To date Shanghai is the asian City that I visit most frequently. In fact Just last year I was invited to play at the Shelter. The first time playing at that club was Awesome and to date I consider the Shelter is my one of my favorite clubs in Asia. This year I was lucky enough to have been invited again by Subculture resident DJ Drunk Monk. The only thing different from last time was that this event would see Myself, Jo stitch, Mc Sinamon, Pakorn and Napat heading over to Shanghai to Jam with the Subculture crew. Most times I ‘ve DJ’d overseas I would have to go by myself but this time It was great to be able to head to Shanghai with all of my crew. We landed in Shanghai on Thursday night and after we checked in to our rooms we all went out for a night of serious boozing. Big ups to Gaz for supplying us with all those Tiger beers and Jager shots!! We pretty much did the same thing on Friday night but didn’t go all out since we had to save our energy for the big night on Saturday. I had to admit that I was still quite tired when Saturday came. I took a nap before the party and woke up around 8. I met up with everyone at the Club and made it in time to hear DJ DJI get on the dekcs. After it was DJ Drunk Monk setting things straight with a solid hour of some of the deepest dubstep sounds I’ve heard in ages. Then it was time for Jo Stitch to heat up the venue with some serious hard hitting dnb and lemme tell ya the crowd went banana’s to his set! To be honest I think he deserved every last bit of applause 🙂 Jo’s come a long way and has worked with me for many years now and I’m glad to see him have such a wonderful time that night at the club. I got on the decks at 2:30 and by that time a few peeps were a bit worn out from Jo’s beats so it did take a while for me to get things going again. I think this time I played it was more difficult to get the crowd hyped then the last time I played in 2009. I’m certainly not really into the wobbly bass as much as I used to be. Never the less it was all good and most important I had a great time! While me and Jo were spinning our tracks Sinamon would Jam on the mic with MC CHacha and Esia from the Subculture crew, all the while Pakorn was in the back of the DJ booth creating some wicked Graf on canvas. That whole night the venue was rammed right til the end and everyone left the club happy. Since saturday night me and the whole crew have been partying like mad. I ‘ve just gotten back yesterday and I ‘m knackered! The whole event was a complete success and both the Dubway crew and I were very honored to have been invited to play at the Shelter. Big ups to DJ Drunk Monk and all the SubCulture Crew for being such a wonderful host’s and I hope to see y’all back to play next year at Dubway.

Big ups to everyone that made it to our very first Dubway Session at the New Club Culture. I honestly think that the new venue is dope! The place really reminds of an illegal warehouse rave..its just an underground space for underground music lovers!! Also big ups to Jo Stitch and Mc Sinamon for rocking the crowd til the A.M. I hope to see everyone there again next month on September 25 (DJ’s TBC).

Tomorrow night the DUBWAY crew alongside, Yaak party and Jiving Tribe will be rocking the one and two’s at the new Club Culture in Rajadamnern Klang Road. Proceeds from this charity party will go to the families that lost their loved ones in riots that happened in May this year. In the main room will be the Mustard Pimp’s (Dim Mak recordings). Entry is 300 baht (good times included).
* the event was a complete success even despite all the air conditioners breaking down. The vibe reminded me of underground raves I used to go to when I was younger. massive sets played by everyone and all the ravers were up for it! click on the link below to check out the pix from the party:
Our first ever gallery exhibition showcasing the artwork of T.Puchpen and Homebass graff writer Pakorn was a complete success. I’m so happy to be able show people that Homebass Communications and DUBWAY is just another party but instead I ‘d like to think of it as a movement that incorporates all styles of dubwize sounds, street art, visuals and education. Its also good to have peoples that normally wouldn’t come to our nights check out fresh art, dope tunes and mingle with the crew in a relaxed environment. The last thing I’d like to mention about the artists is that they have progressed so much over the years. I remember meeting Pakorn ages ago when he was still a novice graf writer, but wow I’m so amazed by how much his work has matured over the years. T.Puchpen I think is one of the only guys that pretty much knows what go’s on inside my head as he’s always creating the stuff that only I dream about. I hope to give Dubway and both artists more opportunity to become better known in Thailand and the world. Skies the limit and we’ll see what happens. Either way we couldn’t have done it with out your support. Big ups to T.Puchpen and Pakorn for working so hard to create the art for the show. I also want to thank Space 360, Daddy P-lo and DJ Hiro for supplying the downtempo, dub reggae and dubstep tunes. Big ups to Sinamon for the mic duties, Hiroshi for making the oishi yakitori, teppei@ Traps wanna, Manta@the nation, DJ To-ru, Jo Stitch, Dude mag, ART Gorilla’s, everyone who came to show there support and last but not least ASAHI BEER for supporting this project. Don’t forget we will be taking this exhibition on tour. We’ve got the next show in Hua HIn on July 31.
