Hanging Out at 51 Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok, with DJ Maft Sai

Looking for interesting places to dine, drink, dance and dig for rare records in Bangkok?

Well, this week, we’re introducing you to Bangkok-based DJ/entrepreneur, Maft Sai. He is the co-owner of Studio Lam, Zudrangma Records, SaNgaa beef noodles and producer of Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band.

Here’s a look at the 3 main places you are most likely to catch him at:

If you’re in Bangkok and looking for ethnic sounds from all over the world to add to your record collection, then Zudrangma Records is your go-to place. If you can’t make the journey down, do tune in to their weekly live streamed radio show.

Studio Lam is that place to go if you’re looking to soak in non-mainstream music that ranges from live Molam bands to Afrobeat to Dangdut to Techno. Their assortment of unique own-brewed traditional Thai alcohol – Ya Dong – fuses the old with the new and is a must-try.

Situated in right in between Studio Lam and Zudrangma Records, SaNgaa serves up tasty halal chicken/beef noodles based on a 60 year old family recipe with fresh farm produce coming from their own farm in Khao Yai.
