Vimal Pawa


“The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling” – F.Fredrickson

Music. Music. Music. Music has always been Vimal’s ‘calling’. Vimal exists because something called ‘music’ exists. His passion for music makes him the man he is. Vimal, an archetype of what happens when you have passion in what you do in life. He has not spent years of formal training to hone his skills in the world of music. It is his passion that makes him churn out the tunes he does.

Originally from Bangkok, now hailing from the paradise beach town known as Krabi, Vimal Pawa is more than an up and coming underground DJ, soon to be producer. Well known in Krabi and Koh Lanta, Phuket and HatYai, Vimal plays a wide range of beats from soft lounge, to hard/heavy Deep Tech. However, his speciality lies in deep, organic and emotional sounds. Vimal has a great sense of what tunes fit the mood of the crowd. Adding to that skill, his music makes sunsets look even more spectacular than they naturally are.

His philosophy, “You don’t have to always dance to enjoy the music”, rings true as his listeners are usually mesmerised by either just laying in the sun with content smiles pinned on, heads bobbing, or of course, dancing and cruising to Vimal’s enchanting tunes. An instant gratification for an artiste who wants to primarily create positive vibes through his art. His art, which is the sole purpose of his existence.

Having started in 2015, Vimal has been trying to push the underground music scene in mainland Krabi. Most venues in Vimal’s town focus heavily on mainstream pop music. Vimal has worked hard to create a keen following of people who appreciate the music he presents. His passion drives him to give a taste of what he ‘sees’, in sounds he hears, which many may not have ever been previously exposed to. He wants to spread the knowledge of music that he has cultivated over the years, purely due to his love for music. His mantra, ‘spread the love, spread the music far and wide’.

Vimal has done guest mixes for a few radio shows, including Loco Room (TH) and Trax Radio UK, Ibiza Radio One, and regularly on Base FM UK. Not to mention, he is also one of the founding members of Underground Music Thailand (UMT). He was invited to play at the Colours of Love Festival in Koh Phangan not long ago, then he was also invited to play at the Surf Beach festival in Kata, Phuket and the Beach Life festival in Songkhla, all alongside respected names in the industry. All the while also working in cool flea markets HatYai. All these events, he worked with the Tourism Authority of Thailand the Amazing Thailand campaign.

Vimal the person. He is approachable. His attitude, positive. His talent grows along with his reputation as  a DJ throughout Krabi, pioneering the underground scene on the mainland. Vimal is also regularly seen in Koh Lanta, where the underground stage is flourishing. He is proud to be a part of the underground music community and wants to continue growing the community. Vimal has great respect for other artistes and believes, by supporting each other we only end up growing for a better, positive existence.

Concluding in Vimal’s words, ‘Music is ecstasy. Music hurts no one’. Genuinely a sincere artiste with a fitting attitude, to spread love and peace through the magic of music.
