DJs hit the decks at Samui

Laboratories might typically be full of test tubes and concoctions, but this one is hoping to produce chemistry of a different kind _ and the result should be a Friday night to remember.

DJ Andy Caldwell, left, and Michaelangelo L’Acqua will lead the ‘DJ Lab 2013 Happening’.

The "DJ Lab 2013 Happening" party at W Retreat Koh Samui Resort & Spa on Sept 27 will feature top DJs and six emerging talents who will be put through boot camp.

Mentors will conduct the third annual W Hotels and Burn Studios DJ Lab global talent search from Sept 24-29, and six winners will be chosen for the event.

The mentors will be W Hotels global music director Michaelangelo L'Acqua, two-time Grammy nominated producer and composer DJ White Shadow, A&R label boss and one of the men from UNKLE DJ James Lavelle, and two-time Grammy nominated DJ and producer Andy Caldwell.

On the night, the six winners will hit the decks alongside the mentors at the resort's Woobar, where the extravagant light and sound show will mix with innovative cocktails.

The six can also be seen at the newly opened W Bangkok on Sept 28 and 29 before they embark on a global tour of W hotels and retreats.

Tickets for the Sept 27 party cost 500 baht including a welcome cocktail (free entry for women) and 20,000 baht per pod for 10 people.
