||Limited vinyl edition of the ZudRangMa Records anthology with 22 Tracks of the most eclectic and indigenous Thai funk, soul, rock, and western pop. Tip!
Over two years ago, Bangkok crate digger Maft Sai from ZudRangMa Records Thailand complied the now legendary Thai Funk: ZudRangMa Vol. 2 CD, showcasing 18 forgotten Thai pop, garage rock, funk, and disco tracks by a cross-section of local 1960s-70s artists unknown outside of Southeast Asia. The limited set came housed in a stunning hand-stitched soft cloth sleeve and was culled and created from the used record bins and bustling street markets of the region.
For those who missed the first edition or prefer their music (as we do) on black wax, Thai Funk: ZudRangMa Vol. 2 is now available as a stunning double LP package (LITA 078). Housed in a deluxe gatefold “tip-on” old-school jacket with a plethora of vintage album art, lovingly remastered audio, and to top it off, the beautiful Thai print hand-stitched cloth outer sleeve (w/ 10+ color/pattern variations) that the original CD was famous for.
Artists from the first ZudRangMa comp, like the soulful Chantana Kittiyapan and disco funkateers Royal Sprites take a celebratory lap around some of Maft Sai’s fascinating new/old discoveries like The Impossible, who are still active in the music business. “Singto (Lion)” from Bualuang OST/EP is a head nodding revelation. Equally important as an anthropological document and a party starting record, Thai Funk: ZudRangMa Vol. 2 is sure to be treasured by music lovers of all stripes. Ethnomusicologists and cultural navigators please take note - this is a learning experience of the best kind!
