Think heavy bass and traditional Asian music. That's what's going on in China & Taiwan's underground circles right now. Beijing and Tapei, among other cities, are currently home to a rich and diverse electronic music scene. Borderclash looks at how a bunch of Chinese and Taiwanese producers navigate in between bass-heavy hip-hop beats, techno and experimental music
From Shanghai-based Tzusing's 100bpm stomping wave techno to Guzz's sampling and heavy bass experimentations... Borderclash goes East.
We also have Martin Schmitz, producer, DJ, and Micro-Galerie owner, in the studio who tells us about Agriculture, his forthcoming techno album on Cologne-based label Noorden.
The London Jazz scene has been sprouting in the last few years; we check out Brownswood records' tribute to it. Nubya Garcia's tenor sax, Moses Boyd's drums, Shabaka Hutchings' clarinet, they're all out here.
On top on that, we catch up with new releases from the Rhythm Section International, who put out a compilation to raise funds for Dominica. 28 artists, quite a few of them of Dominican descent, donated their music oscillating between house, jazz and hip-hop flavours.
+ a bunch of cool new tunes.
