Encompassing musicians from Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany, music residency SoundLab debuted at The Dusun resort just last year, which resulted in a stellar compilation involving all participants. They were kind enough to supply us with additional materials before, and now a year into it, they’ve yet again passed us a whole EP’s worth of extra tracks. Containing new music by Vietnamese experimental musician Nguyen Hong Giang, Pinoy rapper Den Sy Ty, Manila’s multi-genre electronic act similarobjects, Thai IDM maestro Space360, Germany’s genre-(and gender-)subverting Born in Flamez, Burmese sound artist Darko C, and finally, our very own Darren Ashley, this set begins with a Quasimoto-meets-noise number in ‘PhishNoise’, then juggles between the Krush-esque hip hop beat of ‘Emas House Rain Offering’ and the haunting vocals and beauty of nature on ‘Above Seremban’, all culminating in Nguyen Hong Giang’s epic two-parter ‘Dusun’ — a 13-minute-long aural encapsulation of its namesake.
