We havent done a top 10 for a while, so we thought we’d do one at the halfway point of 2017
Its not really to show popularity, but just to highlight the awesome breadth of talent of DJs in the Cambodia Underground scene
The placings are based on our 6.5k plays this year on our Soundcloud page (https://soundcloud.com/phnom-penh-underground) – so older mixes will not have their plays counted from last year
So, without further ado here we are (in reverse order….)
10. DJ Saint Vincent – Warming up for Leeroy
All round nice guy Mr Vincent graced us with this lovely organic techno mix, recorded when he was warming up for than none other than Leeroy Thornhill (The Prodigy).
9.LorenZoo – ElectroMicro
The first of 2 mixes in our chart from the Cambo Disco Club mainman was a real stunner packed with funky House and Techno goodness!.
8. DJ Sequence – UB Radio April 2017
First of 4 mixes in the top 10 from our very own DJ Sequence. A trip thru the spectrum of DnB in 50 tracks – from smooth Liquid Funk all the way to the hardest in the Tech sound.
7. Nora Haidee – DarkSide
The wonderful Miss Haidee dropped a superb mix – we said “Pulsating Motor City rythms and hypnotic, uplifting loops will take you on a true journey to the DarkSide….and all the way out to the light beyond…”.
6. Alan Ritchie & DJ Shagzy – Drum&Bass&Beer Mix
The 2 Amigos’ DnB/Jungle set at our 3rd Birthday party in Febuary was one of the highlights of the night and here they show why – a fantastic mix.
5. DJ Sequence – Live @Club Love Part2
Second half of a mammoth 4 hour set recorded live at Phnom Penh’s Club Love in January 2017, this shows off Sequence’s Bassline House style – its all about the bass!.
4.Lorenzacio Clap – Cambo Disco Reminiscence
He may change his name on a regular basis, but there’s no mistaking the signature sound of the Cambodia Disco Club member. We described it as “…suffused throughout with a melancholy yet uplifting vibe, the spirit of the original masters from Detroit and Chicago is always apparent.”.
3. DJ Sequence – Live @Club Love Part1
Part one of Sequence’s set at Club Love in January 2017, again 4 to the floor – but never lacking that vital bass!.
2. Sushi Firas – Touching the Void
Mr Sushi (as we like to call him) has bought a real breath of fresh air into the Cambodian scene with a number of great events that can only add to what we’re trying to do in Cambodia. His debut mix from PPUG was a big hit – packed full of hypnotic, tribal House and Techno rhythms..
1. DJ Sequence – UB Radio December 2016
And our winner is our own DJ Sequence with another breakneck tour thru the world of DnB/Jungle with 50 tracks in less than 90 minutes!
