I’ve had a Twitter account for quite some time, but it wasn’t until last year that I began to really use it. At first it seemed like yet another annoying social media site in, in which users broadcast nonsense (who doesn’t?) But after realizing the power Twitter had in connecting me with DJs and producers that are entrenched in my favorite genre of music — house.
I love it when DJs and Producers send me their original tracks, live sets, and remixes, so when DJ Pablo Escobud sent me his livemix from Funky House @ Loi Lay in Koh Phangan, Thailand, I was ecstatic to check it out.
DJ Pablo Escobud may be originally from Britain, but he’s held residency in Koh Phangan for 15+years and has become sort of a “big deal” in the house scene there. So what makes him stand out so much in the scene? Well DJ Pablo Escobud brings forth a vibrant fusion of funky + soulful house.
His sets are not for the lighthearted who want to stand on the wall. Nope. If you’re listening to one of his mixes, you’re going to wanna dance it out, make it sexy, and even sway with your drink and add a little footwork.
Now you may be thinking to yourself, house music in Koh Phangan, Thailand? I’ll admit, I never heard of that city in Thailand, but after doing some research and checking out the music of DJ Pablo Escobud, it seems like he is truly a pioneer of the underground house scene in his region.
He’s made quite a name for himself in the scene there, and he’s just moved back to the city he loves to spend the next six months playing host to plenty of parties in Koh Phangan. So what does that mean for those of us who live elsewhere? Well that just means we will get to hopefully hear more of his live mixes on soundcloud and groove to the soulful and funky house of DJ Pablo Escobud.
