Beam Club at 72 Courtyard, Thonglor is celebrating its second anniversary all this month by inviting lots of big names in music to man the decks.



The scene kicks off on January 10 with down-tempo, hip-hop and hard beats by Promnite, the New York native, who started his career as a DJ and producer in LA. He has worked with several famous artists such as Mr Carmack, Djemba, Penthouse, Danny Seth and Falcons along with Katy Perry. Entry fee is Bt300 plus one drink.

On January 13, Beam welcomes back Bloody Mary, a French-born, Berlin-based DJ, producer, and label owner of Dame-Music to Main Room for a second round. She is no stranger to the world of house and techno, having travelled the world as a renowned international DJ for more than a decade, rocking festivals and clubs as both a vinyl DJ and analog live act. She has also graced the decks of world-renowned clubs like Fabric London, Space Ibiza, Panorama Bar Berlin, Smart Bar Chicago, and many more. Tickets are Bt500 with one drink.

On January 19, a double headliner of Yeti Out and Shinedoe will take the stage in Dalmation room, inviting clubbers to dance the night away with cutting edge hip-hop and bass. The Main Room meanwhile is devoted to Shinedoe, the Amsterdam-based House and Techno DJ who began her journey as a DJ at the age of 19.

Shinedoe has drawn inspiration from originators like Jeff Mills, Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson and Orlando Voorn. With her deep connection to the sounds of Detroit, Chicago and the often unsung Amsterdam scene, her DJ sets blend these influences with a warmth and style that few can hope to emulate - her mixes take dancers on a sensual, explorative trip to the beyond. Entry fee is Bt500 with one drink.

On January 20, Stanton Warriors, an English DJ and production duo consisting of Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley will come to rule the Main Room. Since bursting onto the scene with their multi-award-winning compilation “The Stanton Sessions” back in 2001, the duo has remained the soundtrack to some of the world’s biggest and best parties from East London warehouses, Miami boat parties and illegal Detroit raves, to the stages of Coachella, Glastonbury, Burning Man and Ultra, selling out global tours and topping DJ lists along the way.

On January 27, it’s the turn of Jacques Greene, the enigmatic, young artist who broke out of a generation of independent electronic labels Uno, 3024, Night Slugs and LuckyMe as a genre-defining producer and DJ via 2011’s ’Another Girl’ – one of Pitchfork’s Songs of the Decade, 2013 favourite “On Your Side” featuring How To Dress Well and 2016’s club anthem “You Can’t Deny”.

Greene crafted a musical blueprint that inspired a generation who were raised at the intersection of contemporary music in the 90s – hip hop, RnB, house and techno. Entry fee is Bt500.
