Its been 2 years since the foundation of Phnom Penh Underground and in that time we’ve promoted some amazing parties, interviewed luminaries like Mr C, Krafty Kuts, Leeroy Thornhill and DJ Craze as well as hosting a wealth of awesome mixes from the cream of the Cambodian DJ scene – from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap, from Sihanoukville to Kampot.
To celebrated our 100th mix on our Soundcloud page, we asked 24 of Cambodia’s best DJs to choose a track that was special to them – could be an all time classic, could be something that’s hot in their record box right now.
We then asked Phnom Penh Underground founder DJ Sequence to mix them together and try to showcase what the current underground sound of Cambodia is.
You’ll find the funkiest house rubbing shoulders with gritty acid techno and conscious reggae next to no holds barred Drum and Bass – its a blend that reflects the eclectic mix of sounds that you’ll find playing night after night in the underground clubs of Cambodia and shows just what massive potential this country has to turn into a clubbing mecca.
So, without further ado, sit back and enjoy a true journey into the sound of the Cambodian Underground and remember that the only place to keep up to date with Cambodian Clubland is at http://phnom-penh-underground.com/
