ASEAM t-shirts!

We’ve printed a limited run of t-shirts as a fundraiser to cover web-hosting costs for the ASEAM site. If you dig the Archive and want to keep it going, please consider buying a t-shirt from our Big Cartel store or place an order directly at aseam (dot) info (at) gmail (dot) com

As requested we’ve re-printed the Crazy About Records t-shirt from a couple of years ago. This batch is white ink on black rather than silver ink on black. Check them out here

Also available are the Thai Wu-Tang Clan shirts. A flip of the classic W logo, the script is the Thai transliteration of “Wu Tang Clan.” You won’t find these anywhere else. Check them out here

Stickers of the Thai Wu-Tang Clan are here

Ueno Interview / Orient Express Beat Tape


I hear you have a new mixtape being released soon, can you talk about the project?

OrientExpressBeatTape is a compilation of beats i made from Southeast Asian music, it will be the first of few volumes about different places on earth and music.


You sample Southeast Asian music for your beats, how do you go about looking for samples?

I used to sample world/ethnic music for a longtime, seeking for different tones that what hiphop offers most of the times. I mostly found my samples on the web, randomly, from link to link, old footages, movies, music…
