Who's Ray Mang?

Ray Mang is Laj is Raj Gupta. One of the premier disco producers since way back when and still clocking forwards in a future fashion with no sign of letting up. He landed his first 12” Number One in ’96 on Noid Recordings gaining widespread support in the clubs and on compilations.

He has taken that wonky party sound and kept it moving on ever since. He also runs the label Mangled and has released across too many labels to mention. He is prolific with the quality control on high.
He launched his own label Mangled in ’98 with a slew of killer 12-inches. Two albums followed: ‘Mangled’ (Eskimo) and ‘Mangled Again’ on his own imprint, as well as singles on R&S, Smash Hit, Bear Funk and Barefoot Beats. Recent hits include ‘Bullet Proof’ on DFA featuring Lady Miss Kier, a disco-house reimagining of a P-funk classic; and the blissed-out Balearic gem ‘Look Into My Eyes’ which instantly became a firm favourite for many.

His many talents as a musician and producer have driven a wealth of collaborations: in bands Block 16 and Motif on seminal ’90s label Nuphonic; as Laj with the Idjut Boys on U-Star, or with Quakerman on their own Fiasco imprint; and with close musical acquaintances The Glimmers, Foolish Felix, Lee Tong and Nathan D’Troit. More recently Ray has teamed up with Bill Brewster to form Mang Dynasty. In all his guises Ray Mang is one of the most prolific contributors to the UK disco/house canon. As a remixer his phone never stops ringing. He’s notched up credits for Lassigue Bendthaus, Banda Black Rio, Gorillaz, Shirley Bassey, Grand National, Beck, Roxy Music / Bryan Ferry, Doves, The Phenomenal Handclap Band, Freddie Mercury, Bloc Party, Munk, Rob Garza, Friendly Fires, Classixx, S-Express, Daniel Grau & Los Amigos Invisibles with Dimitri From Paris to name just a few.

As a globe trotting DJ he plays at festivals, clubs, bars and on beaches in some of the most beautiful locations around the world. His incendiary sets blend house, disco, boogie, cosmic, balearic, latin, afro, along with anything that takes his fancy and sneak previews of his own forthcoming monsters. As happy playing peak time Saturday night as he is providing the soundtrack to your sunset moment in paradise. Recent trips have taken him to Brazil, USA, Bali, Japan, Australia, Mexico, Croatia, Ibiza and all over Europe. He has also become a regular at festivals like Electric Elephant, Festival No 6, Campo Sancho and Mareh & O/NDA in Brazil.

Phoenix Park Ski resort

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Phoenix Park is perhaps one of the more well-known resorts in Korea as it was the host hill for the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics and skiing and snowboarding. Located in Pyeongchang, Gwangwon province, Phoenix boasts with the title of best freestyle hill in Korea.

Even though Korean mountains might be smaller than their European and American counterparts, they are absolutely no less fun. The quality of the snow at Phoneix is some of the best in Korea due to higher snowfall records, so riders can rest assured that it will be quality riding on soft cushy snow, throughout the entire winter season. The Phoenix team did an excellent job keeping the snow in pristine riding condition during the Olympics. Actually 12 out of the 22 slopes are of international standard.

The Park has both a gondola 8 chairlifts that all depart from the base area. Five chairs go up all or part way to the peak which is names Mount Blanc, the available gondola also goes up all the way to the peak. The remaining thee chairs go up to the smaller peak, Bulaemaru, on the side of the mountain.

The new Seoul – Gangneung route can get you there in 90 minutes on the high speed train and then a short 25 minute bus ride from the station to the resort. A train ticket will cost you about 20,000 won or so. Alternatively one can take a bus from Samseong or Jamsil straight to the resort and it takes about 2 hours.
 

Vivaldi Park - DAEMYUNG RESORT

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Vivaldi’s state of the art facilities and ease of access makes it understandable why it is the most visited resort in Korea, 8 years in a row! Daemyung Resort Vivaldi Park is located in neighboring Gangwon-do province, right across the border line so do not fret, still only a 60 minute trip. Vivaldi can host up to 20,000 visitors so you know they run a smooth operation.
Vivaldi boasts one of the trendiest resorts in Korea and that makes it quite the hotspot amongst the younger crowds, that and its close proximity to Seoul. Vivaldi is equipped with the biggest resort in the country making it an easy choice destination for many tourists.
As mentioned earlier, Vivaldi is high-tech, it has the first express 8-seater chair lift in Asia and what makes it even better is that is open until 5am. So for those hip night owls who love to shred the night time gnar, you know where to go.
Vivaldi offers 12 slopes with 10 lifts at varying times and prices. So it’s pretty simple to select something that suits your needs. Free shuttle buses that are specifically arranged for tourists go straight to the resort. These buses depart from various locations in Seoul and they also return to the same places they departed from.
Vivaldi offers all varieties of slopes, from beginner to advanced, making it a good destination for groups with mixed levels.
Due to the high volume capacity this place can get packed so it’s better to go on the weekdays or at night. Otherwise be prepared to wait in 30min -1hour lines.
 

Jisan Ski resort

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Situated in Icheon, Jisan resort is definitely a top choice amongst the local ski resorts due to its close proximity to Seoul. Just an hour and a half away, Jisan resort is perfect for day trips. So if you’re pressed for time, Jisan will definitely satisfy your snow craving. For those that have the luxury of time the resort offers a multitude of beautiful condos.
Jisan might not be renowned for its natural snow due to its warmer geographical location, but one would hardly notice as the artificial snow and snow grooming at the resort is top notch. Jisan offers 7-8 beginner to intermediate slopes, making it the perfect destination for a family outing regardless of ski proficiency. The ski resort usually gets packed on the weekend so it might be better to go during the weekdays. Advanced riders might consider one of our other resorts as they might find these slopes a bit too easy.
For those who are not so interested in skiing/snowboarding you can always try the snow-sledding which is heaps of fun. If you get tired or hungry, a cafeteria is located at the base of the slopes. Sit outside and enjoy some snacks while taking in the breathtaking scenery.
Free shuttle buses operate from various destinations in order to provide convenient access so don’t worry about renting a car.  How to get there:
Express Bus at Seoul Nambu Express Bus Terminal OR Dongseoul Express Bus Terminal → Icheon IntercityBus Terminal → Local bus No. 12 → Jisan Mart Entrance → Jisan Ski Resort
