Mixtape 7: Borneo For Burning



Here it is, the seventh Dreams of Consciousness podcast, focusing on bands from the Eastern Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak. The podcast features an interview I did on New Year's Eve with Kota Kinabalu's Maskburn, who were in KL to play Chaos in Rumah Api as well as a one-off show with Seattle's Endorphins Lost and Scotland's xSaxonx.



Our talk took us from the state of the metal and hardcore scenes in Eastern Malaysia, to the effect palm oil plantations are having on the environment in Borneo. It's a hot button issue here, since Malaysia is the second biggest producer of palm oil in the world, and the industry accounts for almost 6% of the GDP. A simple google search will show all the problems associated with palm oil production in this part of the world, but I recommend this wordpress site, which appeals to my pithy and muckraking sensibilities.
