Our SoundCloud Page (https://soundcloud.com/phnom-penh-underground) continues to blaze the way for the DJ scene in Cambodia – we’re up to over 25,000 plays and 3500 downloads (and we’re getting over 1500 a month now) which is awesome for one of the smallest clubbing capitals in the world.

We’ve now got 106 amazing mixes from DJs active on the Cambodia scene, going all the way across the musical spectrum – from DnB to Techno, from House to HipHop and all points between.

We’ve had listeners from over 50 countries- from Finland to Portugal and Luxembourg to Slovakia (hello to all our listeners in The Bolivarian Republic of Venuzela!), which just shows the recognition that the Cambodian Underground scene (and it’s fantastic DJs) is getting from all over the world.

2015 has seen some really exceptional mixes from some very talented DJs that its been our privilege to host and share – so, without any further ado, here’s the Top 10 (based on number of plays, directly via our Soundcloud) for 2015!

1. It’s only fitting that our 100th mix should occupy the top spot! A genre-busting journey thru tunes selected by 24 of the countries top DJs, mixed to perfection by our very own DJ Sequence. This was a mix that epitomized our desire to represent every strand of underground music!
