My sunrise set of Chinese and Asian inspired bass music for Threshold - Chinese New Year Party - 2012 - Enter the Dragon. It's a mixture of dub, trip-hop, luvstep, dubstep, and other styles. The line-up included Ana Sia, David Starfire, Vokab Company, Pumpkin, Marv Ellis, Solovox, Bridgetown Revue and much more... Put on by SijaPDX and Diggable Monkey as a fundraiser for the Portland Artist Clinic. https://www.facebook.com/events/249510408446206/
I had played several gigs in Shanghai and Beijing just prior to this event and spent a lot of time trying to track down quality and amazing music for this sunrise set that would not wipe out the crowd with exhaustion nor bore them away. And I didn't want to play any track I'd played in previous years. Definitely exciting things are happening in China with music, a lot of it crossover work between European/American expats and locals, but local producers are making great music as well. I tracked what I could down, but so much I couldn't find.
