About the artists :
Apichat Pakwan is a group of musicians from Thailand & The Netherlands. They make what they call Esantronics – a mix of Esan folkmusic (molam), dub, hiphop & electro.
Unique about Apichat Pakwan is their mix of very traditional instruments with innovative live electronics.
They play original Esan repertory as well as their own new interpretations and compositions, all on a bass-heavy dub foundation.
The group was formed by producer Olivier Schreuder (Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 1980), who met a group of highly talented musicians in the city of Khon Kaen (Thailand) while studying the local traditional music & instruments. The spectacular sounds of these instruments, the beauty of the melodies and the lyrical and virtuosic playing he heard inspired him to present this music to new audiences, write new compositions and explore new territory by adding electronics in a way that shows the best of both worlds.
This developed into a refreshing mix of songs, instrumental compositions and improvisations, falling somewhere between traditional Lao music on dubbed-out beats to contemporary electronics inspired by molam melodies.
In September 2018 the third single of Apichat Pakwan called ‘Leh’ gets released on Animist Records.
