If you love to party and you appreciate top class DJs playing the best house music around, then you should have been at Phuket’s luxury resort Sri panwa Resort last night.
Sri panwa’s Baba Pool Club was the venue for their Sweet, Spicy & Sexy Singapore F1 after party and it featured a DJ line up which any club, anywhere in the world, would find hard to match. Having so many top names in one venue, for one event, is not something that happens that often.
The night kicked off in style with Kele Okereke playing some of the most popular electro house there is to be heard today. Kele is not really famous for being a DJ but for being the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the popular English indie rock band Bloc Party. 30 year old Kele who was born in Liverpool but grew up in London has recently launched his solo career with an album entitled “The Boxer.” If last night’s DJ performance was anything to go by he doesn’t need to worry, he certainly knows how to warm up a crowd and get them on the dance floor.
Next in the DJ booth was Paris born DJ Alex from Tokyo, the name he has taken due to the fact he spent more than 20 years living in the city and still returns regularly. In my opinion, he played a great selection of underground deep house tunes which i know would have had a crowd in a London club rocking. However, i felt that it was a little too deep for the crowd at Sri panwa an perhaps not commercial enough for them.
The highlight of the night for me, although we did leave early so missed the last 2 DJs, was the Austrian Legend that is Peter Kruder, of Kruder & Dofmeister fame. He was accompanied by the two English silver-tongued MCs, Ras T-weed and Earl Zinger whose lyrics certainly gave a lift to an amazing house set by Kruder and the floor was packed with dancers with their hands in the air. This is certainly not a performer who you are likely to see in Phuket on a regular basis and if you missed out on this you may have missed out on a once in a lifetime opportunity.
As I mentioned before, we left the event early due to it being a school night, so we cannot comment on the performances by the remaining DJs Vincenzo, DJ Gregory & Lovebirds. However, if the first three acts were anything to go by i’m sure the crowd wouldn’t have been disappointed.
Sri panwa certainly know how to throw a party and invite DJ’s to play that you do not get a chance to see too often, if you missed out on this event please look out for future events or you will be kicking yourself if you do not attend.
Thank you Sri panwa and DJ’s for making this a night to remember.
