Cultures of Soul continues their global exploration across space and time to discover the funkiest pockets of music culture the world has to offer! This time they make a pitstop in Jakarta, in the years between 1979 and 1991 - the peak of the New Order. Not the British electronic post-punk band that enjoyed great success during this same period but the revolutionary government of President Suharto, which could be characterized as a "dictatorship"... along with all the political repressiveness that entails. Compiled by Munir Septiandry of the influential Indonesian DJ collective Midnight Runners, Tanamur City collects some of the high points of the latter part of this era, conjuring up a world of humid nights in packed discos, no-holds-barred genre blending, fun, fashion and funkiness of a kind never before seen in Southeast Asia... and seen rarely since.
