Shiok! Records

SHIOK! Records is a new record label dedicated to the discovery of the extensive and rich music tradition of the various South East Asia countries.
Operating right from the heart of the region, in the strategic location of Singapore, SHIOK! Records' core mission is to provide a musical outlook on some “hidden gems” that are still mostly unknown to the vast majority of the western audiophiles' audience.
By following an chronological and anthological approach, SHIOK! Records publishes music deeply rooted in the history, folkways and traditions of the mighty and exotic territories of the East. With a specific focus on the lush production of Indonesia for its first issues, SHIOK! Records ventures into the various music genres of Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
