Documentary project Tweakers has released the second in their series of documentaries, looking at “anyone who dedicates their unique skills and creativities to ‘tweak’ the future of Thailand.”
This episode looks at the private studio of Thailand based psychedelic dub reggae band The Sticky Rice, their great analog gear collection and how they use them for live and recordings.
The Sticky Rice is a Thailand based 4-piece dub band led by analog synthesizer wizard Puttitorn Taypabood. He started his career as a turntablist for Thai pioneer reggae group T-Bone, then joined another legendary reggae group called Kai-Jo Brother as a support guitarist. After spent more than 10 years in a local reggae scene, he finally formed his own group The Sticky Rice with his brother and friends, actively playing show at several events and parties.
They are currently making their debut album and live DVD planned to be released within this year from Thai DIY independent label Panda Records.
“It’s not necessary to use Moog or some rare or expensive gear”, notes Taypabood. “Everything depends on how you tweak it.”
