I’ve been told about this shop for awhile, but have never quite found it till yesterday. Go to MRT Hua Lamphong from there take a taxi to Sapan Lek other wise walk up Chareon Krung, when you get to Chareon Krung soi 8 you’re almost there, walk to the bridge, under the bridge is a huge collection of video game shops, go out from under the bridge on the chareon krung side of the market.The record shop will be on your left on the same side of the street as the market. It’s like the second or third shop after you leave the bridge/market area.
7″s cost 50 baht, Lps I’m not sure. They’ll let you preview music if you bring a turntable.
Unsure on where Tallat Meut the dark market or if this is part of the dark market. There are other LP shops in China Town, but this one appears to be the cheapest and most Thai I’ve found, inside Sapan Lek there is another record place, but it’s all Chinese and American LPs and they want like 700 baht per record.
p.s. this is for vintage thai music and not techno. if you’re looking for techno there is still a techno shop shop in pratunam near chitlom BTS.
