All these years I’ve been meaning to make a mix in time for songkran, but not to make any excuses I’ve never gotten round to it except for now. This latest mix is a collection of the Dnb/jungle reggae stuff. There are some really old tracks in there as well as some new ones. They’re not any exclusive dub plates or anything just tunes that I really love and I thought it’d be nice to share this with you all, should you want to listen this at the beach or where ever. Anyhoo I hope you all have a safe and fun songkran.

Yes y’all songkran is just around the corner and looks like we’re set for another techno summer. Regenerate presents the legendary Angela Flame live at Glow on April 5. Organized by Sweden’s Outsider productions and Bangkok’s very own techno godfather Nolens Volens you can bet this is the real deal! Expect to hear the most illest underground Techno as Angela Flame takes to the decks on this special night.

Here’s an exclusive interview with Angela Flame on Siam2nite:
I should have uploaded this ages ago but this is the recording from the Homebass Communications one year anniversary in 2001. Recorded live at Cafe Democ this special event played host to JB aka Dread Bass and Vocalist Dark Angel (Moby). The event was also broadcasted live on the Homebass show that took place live every saturday from 2000 t0 2005 on Fat 107 fm. The mix really shows how fast dnb music grew in Thailand since its beginning’s in 97. A lot of great memories really come from listening to this mix, I hope you can listen to it and get a better idea of what kind of sounds were being played during those days. Fast forward to present day and Dnb / bass music is huge is Thailand with many crews and collectives running tings’. Its really great to see that our hometown has so many good nights going on. In 2013 we also plan on the Dubway 6 year anniversary. Please stay tuned for news regarding that session.

We just finished editing the video from the DJ Krush night. Sorry its taken so long. Once again big ups to everyone who made it to the event. Also many thanks to our sponsor One Systems, Asahi and Leap Frog. Much love going out to all the shops, blogs, magazines and websites that helped us promote the event.
The video was produced by Nat Sakonbut from Virus Films. Check it out here:
The asia bass release party was a great success. We didnt get as many people as we wanted but even still the turn out was about 200 peeps inside. Everyone played extremely well and im very impressed by celcius set. As for the cd we’ve only given out a few but so far the comments have been interesting. Nobody had critisized the cd so I’m guessing that Its ok. The compilation goes on sale in april 10 so thats right before songkran and I’m hoping that it will do well. Lets see what happens in the future.
As usual with any shindigg ive thought of organising, things have fallen behind shcedule. Flyers for the party have not been distributed and apparently there seems to be very little energy of the masses. Its gone to the point where i am very anxious and sometimes nervous about the day of the event march 31. Asia bass is an event that I personally organised, this event is to showcase the dopest dj’s from around the region. So far we’ve had Kiat, dx, jerome, lowe, magnetic soul crew and conroy. Most of the parties have been quite successfull. But the recent year at astra has not been so good, and thats not just with my parties but with a bunch of other events run by other organisations. This time there will be kiat from metalheads, tbase, celcius from javabass and p c lab all playing live. So its quite important that people go and see for themselves what these djs and producers can do. On top of that the party will also be the release date for the asia bass cd compilation. As for the compilation its a cd with all of tracks made by producers in the region. Many times the djs that have played for asia bass have passed me tracks that they have produced , I think that these tracks are very good and thats why ive decided to put the tunes on cd and release it to the public so that they can enjoy them too. Asian drum n bass has still got a long way to go in terms of production, but I really admire the hard work and determination from many of these producers. That to me is something that I admire and I feel that I should support completely. The cd is in no way chart topping, a big tune selling thing… the cd is something like a progress report so that you can check how things are going in 07, we plan on doing the cd every year so we all can check how much we progressed through out the years. In all this asia bass session will be the last one for us at club astra, and i’m very happy and honoured to be working with so many artists that i respect and admire from around asia. I hope that people will also feel as I do and if not at least i hope that there still intrested in our awsome music scene and street culture.
