Stir Fried Chicken in Cashew Nuts.

2.) Tell us more about you. 
I am a DJ and a bartender

3.) How did you start DJing?
I used to be a Metal bass player, but then I took one pill, and that changed everything for me. In the beginning, I started work as a bartender at Q Bar Bangkok and I used to hear all these big-name DJs play every night. Eventually taking said pill and following these DJs. That is when my change came.

While following all these DJs, I heard of DJ A, a Thai DJ playing at Full Moon Parties in Koh Phangan and Black Moon Parties in Koh Samui. He instantly became my number one DJ. His mixing is better than any other DJ I had heard. So I decided to follow his method and started practicing in year 2000. In 2001, I started doing after-hour gigs along Sukhumvit Soi 11. Eventually, Glow booked me and I earned my residency there. In 2006, I moved to work at Q Bar in Koh Samui. That is when I started to play for Full Moon Parties in Koh Phangan, and also start playing around Koh Samui itself and Koh Tao, Koh Tao, Phuket, and Bangkok.

Deep House, Melodic House, and Techno.
