Kali. Max Mason
[Boiled Wonderland Records]
Boiled Wonderland Records is a 2020-born project between Max Mason and long-time confidante (and fellow music friend), Vell — the pair sat on the label idea for four years after being inspired during their time living in Cambodia together.
For his debut outing on their joint-imprint, Max Mason ‘Romjet’ is a crafty amalgamation of Cambodian sonic artefacts that have come by his way, almost like a bit of musical serendipity. He describes ‘Romjet’ as “a sensory overload, using a foliage of local boat races, bands, street side sellers and karaoke broadcasts, it combines all of this with a wide range of influences within the electronic music spectrum. Romjet twists and turns much like life in Asia.”
Accompanying the release is a hypnotic, trippy music video that was filmed in Hanoi, with Cambodia and Asia’s darker side of escapism in mind.
