The third 12-inch vinyl release in support of the film “Bangkok Nites”
Estimated Ship Date 05/12/17
This is the third 12-inch vinyl release in support of the film “Bangkok Nites”; this time it’s Kensuke Ide with his Mothership teaming up with Pongsapong Upani, a renowned young khaen player from Kalasin province. Songwriter/Producer Ide, and Upani, who accompanies molam greats such as Chawiwan Damnoen and Angkhanang Khunchai, fuse J-pop with luk thung-molam in a cool, catchy confection, accompanied by an instrumental version, a manically percolating remix by Hair Stylistics (the artist formerly known as Violent Onsen Geisha), and two groovy locked grooves. A sweet J/Thai meeting here, with a great feel, a summery melody, clever lyrics based on a Japanese folk song, attentive production and fine playing.
