Straight Outta Ulaanbaatar

Ladies and Gentlemen, I bring you what I confidently predict will be the future of music - Mongolian Hip Hop. Here are a couple of tracks from a groundbreaking compilation titled simply "Hip Hop 2016" which I picked up for 3500 tugruk (just over £1) at a garage on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar. I'm not entirely sure it was legit, so I can't promise you'll find it on Amazon.

"Buhydeere" - Saryuna x Dze

"Oroolon" - Desant (featuring Solo)

I could be wrong about this being the future of music, of course. I have been before. I spent several hours in 1980 convinced this lot were going to be massive.


  1. You weren't wrong, it was the rest of the world that was, as is so often the case. Perfect pop music vis Living By Numbers, Sanctuary, Straight Lines and this one for starters

  2. I'm afraid I couldn;t get all the way through the Mongolian tracks to the throat-musicrapping interlude. But I did listen to them for longer than New Musik.

    1. Ah, you have your wit Sir, but I have New Musik.

  3. There is a chance you are qualified to get a $1,000 Amazon Gift Card.
