Do Hits boss Howie Lee steps up to showcase China's emerging bass culture. Tons of unreleased material straight from Asia's underground.
About this mix
Do Hits is an electronics music label from China, most of the members are Beijing-based. We’ve been running monthly underground producer showcase for five years, and now we put on shows regularly national-wide. From last year we start to release compilation of underground producers we find and believe, mostly from mainland China, but also from Taiwan, Singapore and other countries.
To me, the sound of Do Hits reflects the new bass music culture of urban China, where the majority of people are either mislead by the EDM culture, or think electronic music is a “foreign concept.” Our ambition is to break the gaps (also the great firewall), and really experiment between the old and new, rather than just mimic an established style. The sound is evolving really quickly, and here’s what we are now.
The mix contains new material from next Do Hits compilation, which will be released in early June. Also selections of unreleased material of me, Jason Hou, Zhi 16 and Guzz. I’ve also put few tracks from Dokedo’s 论五行 EP which released few weeks ago (but still fresh!), also have few tracks released by China Music House and Chengdu Rap House (highly recommended Chinese rap label).
Our weekly audio mix series where we call upon the most interesting artists/DJs/record labels and ask them to peer into the near future. How they take it from there is entirely open to interpretation.
BR Upfront casts its net out to Ethiopia and more specifically, Addis Abeba's Endeguena Mulu. A mix of 100% unheard electronica with a special message.
