Thaitanium putting it down for Bangkok in their song มหานคร (Mahanakhon). The song sounds largely inspired by Jay-Z's Empire State of Mind with some interesting additives like bells and high pitched voices. The hook is sung by the lead singer of Da Endorphine, one of my favourite Thai bands. BKK, what up!!!!!!
