Amsterdam raised, Bangkok based Maarten presents the [ Poy SianจังหวะEdits ] 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.. - On Bandcamp
