Yesterday, I came across this video, recorded at an event called Voodoo Village. It is a low quality clip from a set by a female deejay called Nakadia. Her sound and choice of records immediately grabbed me and gave me an incentive to find a complete set (below). Spot on, blew me away. It made me wonder what her background and residencies are … now get this: she is from Isaan. Isaan is a rural region in the Northeast of Thailand, where I spend a lot of time, lost my heart and consider to be my second home. The thing about Isaan is: the region is rather remote, the main activity is agriculture and Nakadia grew up as a farmer’s daughter. Imagine the talent, passion and tenacity she would need to have exhibited to learn how to mix and build an international career as a deejay. Khun Nakadia … you have my respect.
