Grayz’ Trip on Lanta

As the title suggests, yes, this one does hit close to home. The original and the two remixes are bound to suck you in with the trippy vibes. The title alone pulls on our heartstrings right here at UMT.radio. To understand why, here is a quick backstory. We here at UMT are mostly based in Koh Lanta and our origins began right here on this hidden gem of an island.

Having said that, Grayz and Q Narongwate are also members and regular DJ’s on our station. Not to mention, Grayz is also a frequent visitor of this magical island and a good friend of ours here at UMT. Q Narongwate is from Phuket, an island not far from Koh Lanta as well. So as the facts unfold, you start to understand the deep connection we have with this release.

This is Grayz‘ first time working with BALLLOOM Records, a label founded by Q Narongwate and the talented duo from Bangkok, Funky Gangster. All three tracks on this release are produced and remixed by the very three names mentioned here. To get into details, we have Grayz with his original of “Lanta Trips” with a very smooth House vibe. Then we have Q Narongwate’s remix which gives us a much deeper vibe. Last, but certainly not least, we have Funky Gangster’s take on it as a highly energetic Jackin’ House beat. All three tracks have one thing in common, the mesmerising Thai vocal samples discussing vices. If you live or have been to Koh Lanta, you know.
