Maft Sai & Chris Menist
One of the founders of ZudRangMa Records, and owners of the eponymous store since 2007, Maft Sai has made the recovery and promotion of vintage Thai sounds his mission. Since 2014, he has helmed Studio Lam in Bangkok, dedicated to providing a home for creative new music of Thailand that exists outside of the mainstream. He has been collecting records and DJing for more than two decades, spinning an eclectic selection from South East Asia to the Middle East, Molam to reggae, African, Latin, and the Caribbean. His pioneering work can be heard on his popular ZudRangMa vintage Thai compilations, live DJ showcases, and stages throughout the world.
Chris Menist is a writer, DJ and musician best known as the co-founder of the Paradise Bangkok label and band, alongside DJ Maft Sai. Currently residing in the UK, he hosts a monthly show on NTS and his DJ sets (in Japan, Thailand, Australia and across Europe at Nuits Sonores, Glastonbury, Off Festival and Wax Treatment amongst others) encompass a broad mix of reggae, soul, African, Latin and Asian sounds from across the globe.
