Montonn Jira

After studying music composition and electronic music production abroad, acclaimed artist, producer and entrepreneur Montonn has made quite the name for himself even beyond our borders. But despite accomplishments that include working with the infamous Neptunes as musical director and programmer in 2007, touring with international artists and accolades such as Record of the Year and Producer of the Year awards, he’s a laid-back and humble guy. Some of his later achievements boast a local studio and label, Samutprakarn Sound. He is also responsible for Asiola, a crowdfunding platform designed to support creative and communitydriven ideas and projects, and Scratch First, organiser of the popular Wonderfruit Festival. When he isn’t composing music, he enjoys gardening.

Definition of success: Having the freedom to do what I want, when I want, with whom I want and where I want.
