Downtempo podcast from our monthly music & arts night in Cambodia
This podcast was recorded live at Swagger, our monthly music & arts show at Meta House, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Our chillout zone consisted of multiple projectors, live painting by Dina Chhan, and the best ambient electronic music in South East Asia played by ebauche. Simultaneously our beats lab features some of the best local and International DJs, playing the finest selection of electro, breakbeat, and techno
An audio visual extravaganza
Alex has been using Traktor software for a number of years now, and recently upgraded his hardware by purchasing a Native Instruments Z1 DJ interface. He was clearly having lots of fun using his new setup, and dazzled us with a stunning visual show projected by 2 large projectors on our massive chillout balcony. Every month he displays fresh stop-motion and hyper-lapse videos, keeping everyone mesmerized for hours.
Alex is also a sound engineer, and musician. He’s a member of WASH. WASH features music by Warren Daly, Alex Leonard (ebauche), and Hal Fx from Audio Mainline. A hybrid soundscape of rhythm, synthesis, live instrumentation and location recordings, guided by the poetry and spoken word of Scott Bywater. If you like downtempo styling you’ll enjoy their latest album entitled Triptych.
