Scientific Sound Asia is the Expat and local English language underground electronic music station for Vietnam, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, The Philippines and the rest of Asia.
Cooking With Gas is the weekly dose of all things percussive, groovy and dark; curated by Ezmun. Episode 09 starts off with Ezmun’s 1-hour mix moving from tech-house through to hard industrial techno followed by a 1-hour guest mix from Jonathan Thomlinson.
A photographer by trade, Jonny has always had a strong passion for dance music. He attended university in Manchester and after frequenting Soup Kitchen, the White Hotel and the other fantastic parties the city has to offer – he began building his own vinyl collection.
Jonny presents to us an energetic mix of some of his favourite techno records from minimal to acid and industrial. His photography magazine Then There Was Us is a platform dedicated to the showcase and discussion of contemporary photography, writing and journalism both offline and in print, it’s well worth a look!
Ezmun is originally from Cumbria in the United Kingdom, he has recently relocated to Vietnam to grow his music ambitions both as a DJ and producer. Unfortunately, covid forced him to temporarily relocate to Melbourne, from here he will release a weekly show pushing his favourite sounds. Ezmun, like many DJs, started off in his bedroom and this led to house parties involving close friends and cohorts.
Fast Forward to 2019 and he finally made his breakthrough into clubs, playing venues in Manchester, Hanoi, Laos and Ho Chi Minh City. Enamoured with the dark sparse atmosphere of minimal half time 140s and the lairy clatter of percussive leftfield bass, he implements these as peaks and troughs in an energetic techno setting.
Ezmun is slowly gaining notoriety amongst the underground in Vietnam and is hoping to make his way back there. In the meantime, he will explore the Melbourne underground scene and continue to hone his production skills with a view to release his own music next year.
Cooking With Gas is an opportunity for him to showcase his friends and other undiscovered DJs, as well as explore the genres he loves in more detail.
