Retox Sessions proudly present “808 Festival”
December 9, 2013 at Bitec
AG Productions and Retox Sessions, Bangkok’s most prominent house music promoter, and Contango are proud to announce the 808 Festival, a super-charged international beat buffet that is set to rock the ears dancing feet of Bangkok.
Anchoring the beat-fest is US music producer/DJ/party guy Steve Aoki. No stranger to Thai dance floors, the original party-starter has passed through the city many times on his relentless global touring circuit. Famous for his party-participation DJing style, he has worked with the big names of the current era including peers Tiesto, Afrojack and many others through his Dim Mak Records label. On top of his growing list of accolades is a 8th placing on DJ Mag’s world poll for 2013. He has also headlined some of the best international festivals this year such as Tomorrowland, Ultra and Global Gathering, to name but a few.
Dropping the big beats alongside Aoki will be Dutch duo Bingo Players, known for their chart-topping single “Get Up (Rattle)”. Also with an epic touring schedule, Bingo Players have over 30 worldwide music festivals under their belts including Tomorrowland, Stereosonic, Ultra, Electric Zoo and a primetime slot at Electric Daisy Carnival: Vegas.
Not to be left out of the mix, Bassjackers - aka Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst – will chime in their infectious grooves to get you movin. The duo of talent quickly rose to fame with “Beat Cut” and dance floor bomb “Mush Mush”, which got picked up by Tiesto. This year has also seen them put up big tracks “Crackin”, “Zing” and “Raise Those Hands” in collab with fellow Dutchman R3hab.
Rounding out the international line-up is the Amsterdam-based Chuckie, who has risen to fame with chart toppers such as “Let The Bass Kick” and “Aftershock”, in which he spreads the Chuckie flavor with his explosive beats, surprise FXs and adulated climaxes. Local support on the night will come from home-grown DJ duo SuperrZaaap, Lingdum, Skinny Mark and Zuper L.
Bangkok get ready for the international beat throw down of epic proportions.
