Hooked filled, experimental relishing electronic artist thruoutin has been a staple of the Beijing’s scene for years.
His latest “Service (The Shanghai Mixes)”, out on Huashan Records, was conjured up during a visit to Shanghai in 2013, where the electronic artist joined forces with label head Raphael Valensi for some gigs, and subsequently a recording session.
The first track, “Qiguai de difang” (奇怪的地方), is a loose interpretation of a comic by Beijing visual artist, Yue Ming. Here an individual is met by a delivery man on a cold and windy afternoon at a bizarre beach. The music revolves around boss nova and gamelan samples with pipa and bass guitar.
You can stream “Service (The Shanghai Mixes)” in its entirety on Bandcamp.
