This July, DJ and crate-digger par excellence Carl Hamm (aka DJ Carlito) is hoping to fulfil a long-standing ambition: to travel to Malaysia and meet with some of his most beloved 60s Pop Yeh Yeh icons; to interview them for a DVD documentary about the Malaysian music scene of the 1960s; and most importantly, to secure licensing for some of these amazing rare singles so that they can be compiled for a release on the ever-brilliant Sublime Frequencies label.
This amazing music is largely unavailable and unknown throughout most of the world, and Carl’s plan to bring it to wider attention is well worth supporting. His Kickstarter project is already well on its way to raising funds for his trip, but there are only 4 days left, so please support it if you can.
For more information about Pop Yeh Yeh (and some brilliant videos), check out this post on Boing Boing. Good luck Carl!
