88 - Double Happiness: Enjoy the music and Support a cause :)

Next. we are travelling to Vietnam where our talented sound engineer is also a fabulous producer who honoured us with a beautiful track.
A hint of sweet with a dash of spice, spell-bounding smooth selector Maggie Tra uses the world as her playground. The Australian born Vietnamese/Cambodian DJ/Producer’s sets bring finesse and flair to
the dance-floor by embracing the culture of the land she's in with wholeness and conviction. Maggie musically exposes herself within her sets in varying perspectives, whether she’s spinning Hip Hop, Soul and R&B tunes to Disco, the emerging DJ's love for travel has allowed her to grace the decks in Brussels, Berlin, London, Australia and Vietnam.
Establishing herself from humble beginnings, Maggie first rose to prominence as a music journalist, blogger, publicist and radio host on Boxout FM. Submerging herself in a world of music and creativity in 2011 she founded Stimulate Your Soul blog which cemented Maggie as a trusted tastemaker within the local scene. More recently she founded Hà Nội Community Radio a project aimed to unite creatives in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Beyond her own pursuance, Maggie is dedicated to supporting emerging artists’ and empowering women in the music industry. She's brought her 'Boss Lady' workshops across Asia & Europe, copublished an e-book and created an organisation to uplift women in the music industry called 'SYS
Sister Sounds'. A first of its kind in Hanoi, Vietnam, the organisation runs ’Pho The Girls’ DJ Workshops, which focuses on helping Asian women and non-binary people to get into the music industry.
Maggie’s music has been seen on NTS, Worldwide FM, Mixmag Asia and more. Celebrating her unique, equivocal style, Maggie masterfully balances individuality and embraces the cultures she’s in. Allowing her to bridge the gap between Australia and Asia assisted by carefully curated DJ sets and production.

Her track “Da Leng” means play in Khmer. Exploring Khmer samples this song is a homage to those who just go through life living and playing every day as an adult just like a kid. The song reminds me of kids dancing in the rain, smiling without a care in the world through rice-fields with innocence.
