Celeste Siam became the latest world class DJ to drop into Xana Beach club with Attica last weekend. After a week that saw almost relentless rain, the sun finally came out and we had a stunning afternoon by the pool on Bang Tao beach. Celeste Siam is probably Thailand’s best known musical export, certainly in dance music circles, playing at many of the world’s best venues and residing in Ibiza during the summer, where she holds down exclusive residencies alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. She is not a regular at the clubs in her homeland so we were looking forward to having her play.
Nemo Cools was on warm up duty, making his own Xana with Attica debut, playing a down tempo, nu disco set before moving into some deeper house territory, perfect as the sun blazed down on the beach club. Nemo has played at many venues around the island but his eclectic sound is probably best suited to the beach, where feet were tapping on sun loungers and cabanas sprung to life as he set the scene perfectly for the arrival of Celeste.
The beach was taken over by preparation for a massive hotel event but that didn’t deter the discerning music lovers who had turned out to listen to Celeste. With the bright blue water of the Xana with Attica infinity pool as a backdrop, Celeste took the beach club on a musical journey full of chunky beats, col basslines and one or two stunning vocals. Showing the full range of her electronic dance music catalogue she had us dancing in the pool! The last few years have been a whirlwind for the girl form Bangkok, having moved to Ibiza for the summer season she has become a fixture at some of the cooler parties and with an ever increasing winter schedule around the rest of the world, her star is very much in the ascendency.
As the sun disappeared, the beats got a little chunkier but the vibe for very much still on a fun level. She may not be a regular when it comes to playing on home soil but she will definitely be at the top of our list for the high season. Celeste delivered an amazing performance; it’s not difficult to see why she has become one of the hottest bookings on the scene. Next up for Xana Beach club with Attica is Paul Oakenfold, who makes his Xana Beach club with Attica debut on Sunday April 28, rumour has it Celeste may be dropping back into Phuket to catch that one…
Sorry, nothing found.
