Selectress Iriela, Eddie Leader & Biliguudei headline Warehouse Rave’s year-end hurrah

Warehouse Rave, a collaborative series between Jason Kong Gin and Secret Guests Asia since February 2023, presents top-quality sonic experiences, mixology, and production. Held at its home base — Phnom Penh’s Seekers Spirits distillery — the event transforms the venue's warehouse and garden space into a haven for discerning ravers.

Having previously welcomed artists like Toni Varga and Bastian Bux, the series intertwines with Cambodia's underground scene, featuring local talents for a unique nightlife experience.

This time the party purveyors prepare for an all-out “XXXTRA XMAS” event on Saturday, December 23, in partnership with Mixmag Asia.

Making its grand finale for the year, Warehouse Rave presents the Cambodia debt of three international headliners who will lead the charge in the all-night affair of beats, accompanied by performances from top-quality homegrown talents.

First up is Selectress Iriela from New York, whose extensive travels and experiences contribute to her genre-bending sound. Known to champion all things soul, funk, reggae and disco, she’s also collaborated with heavyweights of the music industry — A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Lady Starlight, DJ Scratch, Chaka Khan, and Louie Vega just to name a few — and has cemented her status as a music evangelist with her global performances.

Mongolian techno phenomenon Biliguudei will bring the peak time chills from the northern reaches of Asia.

He works closely with Germany's Giegling crew, continuing to bridge Mongolian and Chinese electronic scenes to the global stage.

Keeping true to Warehouse Rave tradition, resident DJs Just.fin and Bytz will frame the night with their signature mixes.
