Chris Menist - Leftfield Sunshine

Chris Menist Leftfield Sunshine

Chris Menist is already a legend in our books with his mind-blowing Thai compilations on Soundway Records and Finders Keepers. We had the chance to invite him in April 2011 to celebrate his Sound of Siam and Thai? Dai comps and he gladly accepted our invitation to celebrate Soundway Records 10th anniversary with a new exclusive mix. "It's a kind of left field-tropical selection, featuring quite a few artists Soundway have had on their records over the years, but with different tracks by them, not the ones that were compiled necessarily. Hope it's a fitting nod to the label's 10th year." says Chris. Enjoy this dish of rare and sunshiny world grooves!
