One of the individuals that can perhaps represent and attest most to the rising house and techno movement in South East Asia, is no other than Sunju Hargun. A leader in the Thai scene and beyond, his name now pops up for gigs every weekend around the region, from his native Bangkok to Bali or Manila. He has shared the decks with some of the biggest names such as Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Dubfire, Seth Troxler or Jamie Jones and has played in festivals such as Off Sonar, Wonderfruit festival and many more..
With Roots originally from India, but born in Thailand, Sunju Harguns’s story is one of passion for electronic music. It’s a tale of deep, dark driven Techno beats and rolling grooves that both encapsulates the mind and moves the feet.
In 2014 Viva Music founder Steve Lawler unearthed Sunju Hargun together with his production collaborator "Forrest" and promptly signed and released their debut EP “Vie”. Track ‘ No Futuro ’ put individually both their names on the tongue of weekend warriors across the globe. With the record being selected by many, became a global dance floor destroyer and added fuel with a stunning remix by "System-2" blazing bright.
April 2015 saw another landmark as the guys released their second debut material since the viva release. 'Palace' came out Tiga's home imprint Turbo Recordings being heavily supported by Pan Pot, Dubfire, Sasha, Seth Troxler and many more. A couple of months after the release this all followed quickly with an original remix by Sunju for the duo named "Goldffinch" which was heavily supported by Dubfire, Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Carl cox and many more which broke into Beatport’s top 50 techno charts.
2015 was a year of change for Sunju as he evolved the production prowess towards a darker techno sound, delivering remixes and originals that both implode and mesmerize the dance floor at peak-time to deeper parts to the night. This change didn’t go unnoticed, coming with reworks for Radio Slave was featured on Richie Hawtin's residency night "Enter" as part of a soundtrack to their promo video. His tour dates spread around the globe as he goes unnoticed piecing together breaking sets and wowing crowds at clubs and festivals in Berlin, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Sweden all the way to Singapore, Manila, Bangkok and Bali.

In the studio he currently experiments and is working on his forthcoming album which is set to see the light of day in 2017. A step further into creativity of pushing forward the unknown, he will be launching his new venture "Xplor" combining the live aspect of being a dj with the experience of a cohesive audio visual showcase.
Asia is growing, Sunju Hargun is one of the individuals to embody this and his rise shows no sign of stopping.
