A new label based out of Lisbon called Labareda just put out a tape compilation with a few of my favorite artists in China. I contributed a track called ‘Londsdale Quay’ which can be heard here:

Ok, so this one is going to take some explaining. My friends Maya Rudolph and Xiao Wei came up with this app called LOOP. Users can download the app and get on Beijing city buses. You plug in your route and are able to listen to a Beijing based artist’s musical ‘interpretation’ of that route. In addition you can add your own recordings on top of the music. There is music from a ton of guys, Josh & Simon Frank (Parallel Pyres/Hot and Cold) Wang Xu (White +/The Gar) and thruoutin
My piece was made for bus 918. It runs from Dongzhimen in the second ring to way out in the suburbs of Shunyi. I used to work at a large format printing sweat shop in a place called Beigao and the 918 took me there. Hope you enjoy the app.
Right on. Saw some people sharing this one on Soulseek today.
Two years ago, 87FEI87 released its first compilation, a six-track, unmixed, unmastered piece of shit meant for jamming exclusively in the confines of Beijing taxis. And jam our drivers did. Taxeee Tapes Vol. 1 was instantly legendary, the only topic of discussion in cabdriver cafeterias from Chongwenmen to Xinyuanli and beyond. This automobile audio revolution continued in 2013 with Taxeee Tapes Vol. 2, eight tracks of trunk-bumpin’ business endorsed by the pulpit of private transportation itself: FM 103.9 Beijing Traffic Radio.
Sadly, those days are behind us. The once-dominant old-skool Volkswagen Jetta has been superseded by the high-tech Hyundai Elantra, and tape decks are now a rare sight in this smoggy city. In one last defiant gesture, 87FEI87 has summoned the best electronic musicians from all over China for the third and final installation of our seminal series.
Taxeee Tapes Vol. 3: Horsepower features a whopping 20 tracks, the swankiest set of beats our Beijing streets have ever seen.* From the warzone aerobics of Howie Lee and the trumpet crunk of DzM to the analog funkfuckery of Meng Qi and the prophetic electro of Noise&Noise, there’s something to tickle all kinds of tush. We aren’t leaving any booties behind on this one.
*Limited-edition cassette available in Beijing only.

Music and art work sent to the factory last night for a new split release. More details soon.
Last night at DDC:
Friday September 19th
Noise Arcade, thruoutin, Charm at DDC
The swanky newly minted DDC takes a dip into some of the scenes more esoteric sounds as they host the spilt cassette release from local electronic pusher Noise Arcade and Malaysia noise artist Jerk Kerouac - and though the Jerk himself won’t be present, the evening is packed with some of the city’s more intriguing ‘off the beaten path’ electronic noise makers including thruoutin and Charm. Good to see DDC jumping down the rabbit hole some more – expect shit to get loud. 40 RMB (w/ cassette)
Tomorrow at the newly opened DDC.
A couple changes to this line-up. No Jerk Kerouac from Malaysia and JFI is also out. However LOBEKRAFT instead. https://soundcloud.com/lobekraft
Friday at a new club called DDC.
