[Recap] Roxy June & Make You Freak USA Tour 2016 - 2 weeks, 5 cities

Roxy June won the Pioneer Pro DJ Lady DJ Championship back in 2010, is a Resident DJ at ONYX nightclub in Bangkok, and a brand ambassador for both Aerial 7 and V-Moda headphones. She has performance all over the region and beyond, in over 20 countries, and she has been part of the lineup of important regional music festivals such as the "Global Gathering" (Korea | 2011) and "World DJ Music Festival" (Korea | 2013).

Make You Freak is an up-and-coming EDM duo signed to the Lazerface record label, consisting of DJ T.Vinn (well-known as VJ for the late You2playTV), and MC Ling Of King.

Their tour took off with a performance at the Los Globos nightclub on Los Angeles' Sunset Boulevard, followed by shows at The Grand nightclub in San Francisco, at VENU nightclub in Boston and at the upscale bar & sushi restaurant Maté Lounge in Washington DC. The final show took them to the Sound-Bar nightclub in Chicago.

The tour was supported by Bangkok-born, Chicago-based DJ and concert promoter DJ Ten Smith. Each event was attended by lots of America-based Thais, who were excited to get a chance to party with DJs from their far-away home country.

On their trip they were accompanied by Pruchaya "Rap" Chansanit (artist name RQ777), who is a distinguished nightlife photographer with Siam2nite since 2012, and a tour photographer for bands such as Bang Bang Bang, Boom Boom Cash, No More Tear and Retrospect.

We sat down with Rap and selected 45 pictures to recap the tour, which was a unique experience for both the artists and the photographer.
