about

Amsterdam raised, Bangkok based Maarten presents the [ Poy Sian จังหวะ Edits ] an EP full of flavourful Molam & Luk Thung inspired cuts..

Aside from the Seminal Soundway “Sounds of Siam” compilations by frontrunners Chris Menist and Maft Sai, Thailand’s Luk Thung has been explored sporadically in the global music scene, cited for inspiration by some (Khruangbin most notably) but remaining exotic and hard to explore for many.

This first of a series of Edits attempts to shine light on the less obvious records that do not owe their value to covering a disco anthem or Western rock classic. Although those records are interesting by their sheer juxtaposition alone, this EP is more interested in the esoterical sounds and riddims that resonate deeper with the Isan Music culture as a whole.

A digger's dream, Luk Thung has been pressed on countless 45's and Full length LP's.. Hopefully this EP will spark some interest to the worlwide music fam to delve into this amazing culture from South East Asia..

[ Liner Notes by Prominent Thai Digger and Luk Thung Expert Mahanakorn Soul ]

Yenakart Sound Bwoy Maarten offers us a revelatory daydream into the many vignettes that make up life in the Land of Smiles. Neon lit back alleys and the time-deficient gridlocks of Bangkok are juxtaposed with the sweat of its north east countrymen. The sounds of temple fairs parry with the rhythms of the muslim south, all while being lashed heavy with digi dubs.

The gritty horn stabs of 70's Saksiam Petchumpu meet the sophisticated synths of Impossibles alumni Rewat Buddhinan, while elsewhere, the unmistakable swaggers of Petch Phin Thong and Kumlai Patchala go toe to toe with lyrical dynamism of Nung Lamyong Kularbseemuang.

Sawadee, Poy Sian Edits...
