Mainstream Thai Funk Sample

Tracing a sample from Thai funk –> modern hip hop:
I saw this particular song filter through Soundcloud and various Thai funk compendiums over the past five years; what a great riff!

Original (Onuma Singsiri – Mae Kha Somtam):

July 2017 Usage (Action Bronson – The Chairman’s Intent):

On a related note, it’s great to see the resurgence of Ajarn Chawiwan in Thailand again – I’ve seen her a lot on TV recently. I have footage from when she performed at our wedding oh so long ago. I want to show it to her sometime soon.

The Sound of My 30s and 40s

Played by a PA band from Chaiyaphum with ever-changing members, on plastic chairs (of course): Khun Narin Band. Look them up, they’ll blow your mind.

Legendary Guitar Otaku Video

I can just watch this again and again:

Can’t figure out which one I love more:

I love that OF COURSE someone knows which guitar he used (some kind of strat) to record my fav song of his, Once Upon a Time in the West: Gear on album Communiqué

UPDATE: MY NEW FAVORITE MUSIC VIDEO (note: you must change settings to play at 1.25x speed)

Now it would just be irresponsible if I didn’t link my favorite guitar documentary ever, but I recommend buying it in HD because this version is very low quality. Here it is, tho:

DJ Enferno – Higher

Top notch performance by classically trained pianist and DJ extraordinaire, Enferno. He has a launchpad to launch his launchpad on the launchpad, if you know what I mean. At my peak, which was very short (and approximately 600 years ago), the best I could do was two Discmans, a dual tape deck, and two PS1s. This guy is so fucking awesome.

If you liked his song and have a love for Hova like I do, you also need to see this one: F*ckwithmeyouknowigotit
