KONGKAST #98 – Dubstep mix feat. DJ DRAGON (Homebass Communications, Dubway/ Bangkok, Thailand)

Dub be good to you! KONGKAST #98 features dubstep vibes from Bangkok’s DJ Dragon , Thailand’s pioneering force in drum & bass and dubstep music.

DJ Dragon alongside close friends has been instrumental in nurturing an underground electronic music scene in Bangkok since 1999. Via radio shows (Channel V/ Fat Radio, and currently GTRonline and UB Radio), own productions and club nights, he has attracted a solid following over the years. And there’s no stopping him, as DJ Dragon’s latest popular creation DUBWAY, Bangkok’s monthly dubstep themed night , recently celebrated its 1st year on the scene! Dragon’s blog website is a good read for new and reviews on that.


****For now, check out his dubplate filled selection exclusively mixed for KONGKAST #98. Thanks & Kudos from us to DJ Dragon and the Bangkok massive.

About DJ Dragon : (Taken from DJ Dragon’s blog)****


“After finishing school in Canada I moved back to my hometown of Bangkok in 1997. Back in those days there wasn’t much underground electronic dance music going on in Bangkok. Apart from one or two clubs that played commercial house music, Bangkok was a musical wasteland. As a youth my goal was to finish school and come back to my home and spread underground vibes and doing this alone would prove to be very difficult. I was lucky enough to have met DJ Wen and Abu. All three of us shared the same love for underground music. We linked up and formed Homebass Communications in 1999.

Our goal at that time was to push left-field electronic dance music like dnb, breaks and underground hip hop. We organised numerous dnb nights in Bangkok city. Djs such as Aphrodite, Mickey finn, Ldouble, DJ SS, John B, Dred Bass and Ez Rollers were guests at our events. We were also lucky enough to have been invited by Channel V (now Fat radio) to host our saturday night program which we named The Homebass Show . The program went on to be Thailands longest running electronic music program, lasting from 2000 to 2005. Unfortunately, due to the radio station changing its music format the show was taken off the airwaves.

Since then, Wen went on to pursue his career as an architect and Abu moved back to his native Japan and is now in charge of his family business. I’m still very happy to say that I am working to spread the underground vibes to this very day. I have focused my time and energy to organizing nights that feature talent DJ from all around Asia . The first series of events that showcased Asian talent were the Asia Bass nights at the now defunct Club Astra. The night also saw us compiling the first ever Asian dnb compilation also called Asia Bass. The CD was released and distributed in Thailand on our very own label.

As of recently, I have also fallen in love with Dubstep and I am now organizing a dubstep night called Dubway . This night takes place once a month at Club Culture and, although the event is dubstep themed everything everything from techno, breaks, house and dnb is dropped. Last but not least I have been invited to host two internet radio shows Dub be good to you on GTR online and The homebass communication on Ubradio. I am very excited about those projects and I hope they do well.”
