A1 - Fei
B1 - Emporium
B2 - Shi

 

The third instalment of Braiden’s Off Out label arrives via Chunyin, a new dancefloor orientated project by Hong Kong born, Sydney based artist, singer and producer Rainbow Chan. In her own words:

"If I had to explain the birth of Chunyin, it was a response to wanting to make more instrumental, gender-neutral tracks that didn't have my face or emotions at the forefront. I wanted to make tracks via a disinterested and icy approach, and transfer the energy I would normally pour into emotional catharsis to something that was bodily, visceral and brutal. With a focus on frenetic, jacking rhythms and choppy samples, I wanted to make dance music that was quite rudimentary. I feel like these tracks are still personal; they reflect themes or sounds that are my personal interests, but without the confines of lyrics or words (which is something fairly new to me given my background as predominately a songwriter.)"

The lead track of this release, "Fei", was the genesis of this project, created as she started to explore the world of murky dancefloor music. The track delivers a raw, punky attitude with a nod to minimal wave, littered with warped organic sounds and samples of Hong Kong new wave cinema.

Following this is "Emporium", a relentless jacking dancefloor number, syncopated groove laden drums married with airy atmospherics. "Shi" closes this EP with a unique and brooding techno inspired track that rolls yet feels as though it's perpetually falling apart at the seams.

Vinyl comes with screenprinted and Chinese seal hand-stamped artwork designed by Braiden, illustrated by Chunyin.
