GIGS IN ASIA THIS WEEK! (SHANGHAI, PHUKET)

Been a busy but fanastic week here as i write this post from my balcony overlooking Phuket.
Last week I was in Shanghai for the Music China trade show, saw some really cool new music and DJ products.
Also managed to squeeze in a gig at a very cool underground spot called Dada Bar Shanghai, a successful chain who have also set up shop in Beijing.

Next stop Phuket, Thailand for a few days of R&R workin’ on my tan, chilling out; and last night I had a guest spot at Phuket’s most popular beach bar, Catch Beach Club in Surin Beach. Think Ibiza in a tropical Thai beach setting. Big thanks for Romain Pelletti for putting me on for one of the most enjoyable sets I’ve played in a long time
