  1. Hi Chris,
    You are a constant inspiration… I just need to push out the boundaries on my vinyl / music field of choice a bit wider sometimes… although time is always an issue… go for it my man… ;o)

  3. Hi Chris,
    Thanx for sharing all this wonderful music and words.
    I’m djing asian/bollywood stuff for about 8 years now, but knowing Zudrangma and all the comps you’ve worked on was a new step ahead for me. I also met Nat last winter in his shop.
    I’ve mailed him a couple of times about you coming to europe but he’is kind of slow isns’t he? ;) I can book you a couple of events in Geneva and Lausanne if you’re up to.
    Looking foward to meet you at Dao Bandon show! cheers

  6. Hi Chris,

    Do you know of any online shops that might be likely to carry original vinyl copies of Waipod Phetsuphan’s Ding Ding Dong ?

    Also, any idea of what a reasonable cost would be?

    Thanks!

    • Hey Kirk

      Thanks for the message – there’s only one online store that would carry this, and that’s http://www.zudrangmarecords.com/, though their site is being updated right now. Ding Dong is very hard to find on either 7″ or LP – if you found one, it’d be around 75 – 120GBP depending on condition. Good luck, Best Chris
