Listen: Shanghai’s Hyph11E Explores China’s “Hard Dance” Scene in New Boiler Room Mix


Boiler Room recently launched a new mix series “exploring the hard and fast fringes of modern club culture” entitled Hard Dance, and weighing in with the fourth offering is Shanghai-based producer Hyph11E.

Her mix is an hour-long blast of jolting electronic music that works in a number of Chinese producers, many of whom can be found on the pages of RADII, including Hangzhou’s GUAN and GG Lobster, and Shanghai’s Gooooose and 33EMYBW.

As the Boiler Room blurb puts it, “The scope and scale of this mix perfectly illustrates why the international community is consistently looking towards China for more extreme sounds.”

Brace yourself and listen in here:
