Trashing the party

If you are among those who inhabit the Bangkok night, you may have heard of or even joined a party by Trasher, Bangkok, a group which celebrates 90s pop music, from Top-40 hits to guilty pleasures. 

The beginnings of Trasher, Bangkok date back five years ago, when a group of friends from Silpakorn University, hopping from bar to bar in Bangkok, were looking for their dream party. They wanted to be out on the floor at a club playing their kind of music, where they could dance like nobody cared. They couldn't find such fulfilment, and to solve the problem they started the party they desired.

"Many people think it is so 'uncool' to say it out loud that you like pop songs," said Tichakorn 'Jojo' Phukhaotong. The 27-year-old is a Trasher, Bangkok co-founder and deejay who prefers to be called "song selector".
