The EDM scene is moving to the next level here in our home city of Pattaya. Having grown over the past few years, seeing host to events such as Wonderfruit (with a splash of electronica in the mix), to the full on EDM bash that is Maya Festival, the scene has evolved - not only in presence but in audience as well. The evidence of this is in all the new clubs opening in and around the infamous Walking Street, playing on the desires of the city to feed the wanting public.
Many big names have been visiting the city also in the past twelve months, which has us all a buzz at DJ Mag ASEAN but none so much as our numero uno... With the recent cancellation of Don't Let Daddy Know - intended for the coming weekend – our hearts sunk at the loss of a chance to bash it out with some of the big names in our top 100. And then we were saved...
Throwing on their cape and raiding the bank to swindle the funds for another huge event – Bone Club in Pattaya came to the rescue. We knew they weren't going to be messing around this season when they relaunched with Showtek to take the city by storm, whilst flaunting their refitted inners. Now host to one of the best sound systems in town and a light display that would rub shoulders with any establishment on the White Isle (Ibiza) , Bone had set the bar high, but how high...
Never to disappoint and much to the fortune of EDM lovers across Thailand, and beyond, they shocked us all this week when they released that they were proud (obviously an understatement), to announce that none other than Martin Garrix - the world's number one DJ as voted by you – would be spinning the crowd into a frenzy this Saturday. Yep, you heard right (we also had to have a double take), Martin Garrix is at Bone Club, what, this Saturday..... Ohhh yeah, game on!
It is exciting times for all us plurs out there in this magical country (have to admit, it just got a little more mystic), and a great sign of things to come. Sure the team will be there to prop up the atmosphere and catch a ride on the rhythm and downright dirty beats that will blasting out of the epic array of boom-boxes this Saturday and there is still chance to grab your slot in what is sure to be a turning point in Pattaya, as the scene moves into full swing.
