EARSNAIL 耳蜗 are a newly formed IDM (intelligent dance music) duo, which came into life during a recent darker period in Beijing. Made up of 2 experienced rock musicians: Yan Shuai (Da Bang) and Wang Xu (The Gar, White+), who found their love for electronica, they are inspired by Beijing’s urban life. EARSNAIL’s music attempts to capture the speed and spiraling sense of life in an Asian megalopolis.
“Post Soho City” MV
Giek’s confronting and healing live-set tells a story of hope and strength amidst the escapism and passion fuelled confusion of our generation. She explores the art of body movement, combined with vivid, almost meditative lyrics and a deeply personal, trance, gabber and rnb nostalgia infused experimental ambient pop sound. The immersive electronic live act touches the borders of a trippy rave party which challenges the audience to rethink their existence right on the dance floor.
Mes & Hamerpagt
Coming from an experimental music theatre and pop music background Mes & Hamerpagt are a strange bunch in the dance scene. Their live sets show their musical creativity whilst never losing focus of being danceable. Their style is characterised by a combination of digital and analogue gear producing a very deep and rich sound with strong techno influences.
