  • This slice of Thai disco ear-candy is primed for international audiences

Jaree "Jerry" Thanapura is not a new name on Bangkok's underground music scene. As Gramaphone Children he's known not only for his funky DJ sets and his slinky, electro-pop smarts (best heard on 2013's "Teenage Love" single), but also as one of the main forces behind Kitsch Cat, an electronic music label we rate very highly.

The latest Gramaphone Children album, Slice & Dice Vol. 1, came out last month and it's packed with nine tracks of intriguing synth grooves, including lead single "Move Slowly" featuring up-and-coming local singer Pyra. 

Less upbeat than the songs surrounding it, this easy-listening tune makes a curious choice of single. We're not complaining, though. Jerry's big basslines and spacey synth sounds lay the groundwork for Pyra's affected (and effects-laden) vocals.

While "Move Slowly" is unlikely to fill too many dancefloors (unless Jerry's hiding a high-bpm remix somewhere), it's an infectious "come-down" track that's more layered and finely-crafted than most of the electro-pop coming out of Bangkok right now. It deserves a bigger audience.

Listen to this smooth, easy-listening tune here:
