After owning a nightclub in Sri Lanka, Achaya moved to Cambodia in 2008 and was appalled by the lack of house music in Phnom penh’s nightclubs, and made it his personal mission to promote House music in the city. He adopted pontoon in the early days and did a regular house night on saturdays as has since been pontoon’s longest resident Dj.
He founded Dancin Mantis records a collective for house music in 2009 which was to bring new flavours of house music and electronica to the Penh and the Dancin Mantis monthly nights at Pontoon are some of the most eagerly awaited nights for house music aficionados.
Achaya brings a eclectic blend of techy, earthy beats mixed with natural sounds and indian and arabic influences to his mix
He has shared the DJ booth with the likes of, Diplo, Major lazer, Aaron Ross, Nakadia, and house legend Bert Bevans….after Gigs all over S.E Asia…Achaya promises to keep your feet tapping.
