Recommendations for Chinese dubstep/broken beat/contemporary electronica?


Recommended Posts



Can anyone provide some pointers towards Chinese artists, labels or DJs putting out interesting contemporary electronic music, along the lines of dubstep or broken beat?


I found a couple of reasonable tracks on the Do Hits compilations out of Beijing but I find them inconsistent and only a few tracks are really what I was hoping for. Plus they haven't put anything out for a while that I could find.

For example, the Guzz and Jyun Jyun tracks on this album are OK but something a bit harder (but not 4/4 techno) might be worth hearing: https://dohits.bandcamp.com/album/do-hits-year-of-the-rooster


Or maybe something along the lines of Mura Masa's "Lovesick F*ck" or Jamie XX "Far Nearer"... for some reason I imagine it's happening somewhere in a place the size of China but I don't really know what to search for.  Maybe Taiwan is a bit more on it?

Well here's one maybe, since I've just learned "乱" in HSK 4 vocab.

look for the Chinese artist in the list. I guess QQ music would do as well.

Thanks @Bibu but this searches for artists whose name contains "dubstep".  Very different from being able to search for artists who claim to represent the genre.

Thanks @corian!  I just got around to listening to the playlist. Some good stuff in there, and some Soundcloud threads to follow... 谢谢你!


Edit: and yes, so far it does seem that Taiwan is on it.  Right now I'm liking Meuko! Meuko! out of Taipei.
