Join us at Phnom Penh Underground as we give you the lowdown on another week end of party madness in the Charming City. There’s a plethora of excellence going on in Phnom Penh clubs with some big international names joining the fun as well!

Ok, so lets have a look at this weekend – too many nights to mention here, so we’re going to concentrate on the one-off nights – for the full line-up with all the fantastic regular nights, check our events calendar.


vinguwww Kick off Friday at MetaHouse as Vinyl Mania returns with their unique, 100% vinyl selection – as far as we know the only night in town that does this…Join Dr WahWah and Nico for a trip thru the spectrum of House via the medium of shiny black plastic.
red gui Over at Code, its a Red Alert with Hip-Hop, Reggae, Dancehall, Trap from DJs Bree, Stroke & B-boyPeanut. Make sure you wear red! PS It’s your last chance to dance to DJ Stroke as he will be returning back to Belgium for a while!
tippa gui Last but definitley not least is the big one for Friday – the mighty Tippa Irie makes his Phnom Penh debut at Slur Bar, alongside the kings of Khnmer Dub – Dub Addiction and everyone’s favourite soundsystem, Wat A Gwaan featuring the talents of Sir Alan Ritchie, Kaztet Dee & Bree. Highly recommended!

ghett123 Meanwhile in the blue corner, over at Pontoon , its a big night for you HipHop headz – the stupendous GhettoBlasters return with some guaranteed block-rockin’, body-poppin’ business. It’s a Sneakers and High Heels Party, so I want to see those high heel, gents!
mute Finally, our recent profile star Mute Speaker touches down at MetaHouse for some Beats Noir – expect Hip Hop and Beats but also elements of soul, dub, afro, asian & psychedelia (and hopefully a bit of A Tribe called Quest!). Highly recommended!



Well, if you have any energy after that lot, looking towards next weekend and beyond, the calendar’s full of amazing events. As always, please let me know about underground events in PP, Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, Kampot and beyond via our Facebook page or the website.

Our pick for next week is:

As I said at the top, loads of great events happening this weekend – for more details, check our events calendar and remember – keep it underground

PS – we started our Soundcloud page last October, and since then we’ve amassed almost 30 mixes from the very best in Cambodia DJ Talent. Remember – if you are living in Cambodia and are spinning quality underground music, we’d love to hear from you! In the meantime, ch-ch-check out our mixes!
