A three day electronic music affair isn’t such a bad way to launch a new festival concept, especially when it’s coupled with the inauguration of a radio platform that focuses on underground DJs and music across all of Thailand.
RE:FIX kicks off on 22 January, 2021, and will support the launch of Underground Music Thailand, or UMT.radio — a twenty four-hour streaming platform that features over a hundred artists, both native to Thailand and from around the world.
While taking place in Bangkok, RE:FIX will run as a three day programme that starts on the outskirts of Bangkok’s Chinatown at the renowned Baan Rim Naam restaurant, where attendees will get a chance to get themselves acquainted to the sunset sounds of Keith Edward form Bangkok and Luke July from Koh Phangan. The later part of the evening will continue on with soulful house reigning the dance floor as Celeste Siam headlines Safe Room with Sweed, Krabi’s house specialist Vimal Pawa and Chiang Mai’s DJ Nakara keep grooves in check.
Getting yourself started on Saturday is highly recommended, as the programme returns to the riverside restaurant Baan Rim Naam by the afternoon with a pop up vinyl market and an innovative showcase of Thai-inspired cuisine exclusively conjured up for RE:FIX Festival. On the ones and twos, armed with organic house splendour, are Stevie Keys of Why Nam and Platipus Records, and a hybrid performance by live-electronic duo, Silverlining. Once the sun goes down, it’s all all techno-affair with some of Thailand’s most respected selectors including TJ Tiesjungle from Korat, Ekanan from Phuket, Bangkok's An Ant Sunpha, and the always intriguing TNZwolve.
Back on the daytime shift on Sunday, a deeper-toned line-up featuring duo SundayAfternoon (Akira and TJ Tiesjungle) from Korat, Rui Tang from Bangkok and UMT.radio residents Medium and KyzerSan, held at the outdoor gardens of Canvas in the heart of Bangkok’s hip club and bar district, Thonglor. Things pick up quickly again though for the closing party of the weekender, as the party shifts to the stylish and panoramic forty-seventh floor club, Curve. Set against the backdrop of Bangkoks, expect a full-throttle dance floor powered by Nanny Satisfy, Nukier of Blast Sessions as well as Jungle Experience Koh Panghan’s magnetic resident Rob Gritton.
The RE:FIX Festival and UMT.radio weekender that celebrates all things Thai from music to food takes place from Friday, 22 January to Sunday 24, January, 2021. Click here for more information.
