Chinese electronic music

Recommended Posts

Can anyone make some recommendations for Chinese electronic music? I'm particularly interested in anything related to ambient, psybient, chillwave, trance, down tempo. If it incorporates elements of classical Chinese music that's a plus. Thanks.

The dohits "label" on Bandcamp has some stuff, although I find the quality quite mixed.

 

If you include Taiwan I like some of the stuff I've heard by Meuko Meuko... she DJs as as well as performing live, and was touring in Europe in fact before the virus hit.  Facebook page.

 

I asked a similar question here about 18 months ago and @corian pointed out this JT article with a playlist that gives a few starting points:

I quite like Sa Dingding 萨顶顶. Her Om Mani Padme Hum version duet with a Tibetan pop singer is particularly nice. https://youtu.be/IJ8zbKTGNUY
Admittedly, all my Asian friends tell me that this is music that typically Westerners like, Asians not so much 😅 - but I don't care!

Have you browsed through the music articles on Neocha? Lots of genres, from around Asia; but recent China offerings in dance/electronica include Out of Fashion Boys and Yu Su. Both of those articles have embedded media players loaded with short playlists.

Bumping to draw more attention to the above post - been enjoying Yu Su for a bit of a change in background music. And plenty more to explore.
