i haven't been back to korea since i was 8.
i'll be returning to seoul from july 22-august 3. i'm involved with proton radio (http://www.protonradio.com) and i need my house music fix WHILE i'm in seoul.
any ideas of which clubs to hit?? i know zabiela will be in seoul soon to play...i just forgot which club
the clubs needs to be HOUSE or any variation (tech, prog, acid etc etc)...i just can't go to a hip pop or a k pop club

thanks for the reply.
a friend of a friend did a write up for xpander when desyn was in town. desyn played our party in miami this past march so i found out about ohoo from him. turns out, this is where zabiela is playing as well to promote his latest renaissance comp....wish i could be there for that!
i'd love to hear the records that korean house dj's play...looking forward to it!
i do a weekly here and i've had some great talent come through...can't wait to check out the scene in korea
i want to stay away from hip pop...i live in florida so i'm inundated with cheesy florida breaks, nu school breaks and hip pop....i'm more into tech/prog breaks...overall GOOD house records.

i was wondering if you were doing a write-up on the korean scene?
a good friend of mine runs what is probably the premiere elecronic music record label here in korea, and i'm sure she'd appreciate some good stateside PR...
there's also a big MTV party coming up this weekend with lots of industry folks and artists milling around, but the gig itself will mostly be breaks and hip hop.
