THE PREMIER TOUR OF CHINESE ELECTRONIC MUSIC IN INDIA / The sound of DeadJ + Menghan + MMS ! Hosted in India by S.I.M.A co-founder Samrat B, and Littlei plus a host of venues around the country, SIMA and core partners present the rising electronic soundscapes of Dead J, aka Shao Yanpeng.

Module 1 is an index of exchange between alternative currents within the Beijing and New Delhi underground electronic music scenes. Its sounds oscillate between dark, minimal beatscapes (Dead J, Beijing), digital rhythmic splices (FAR/∞, Beijing), deranged club-prophet spoken-word segues (Toymob, New Delhi), subtly sinister dancefloor sirens (Audio Pervert, New Delhi), and lush electro-acoustic space-ways (Hashback Hashish, New Delhi; iimmune, Beijing). - READ COMPLETE REVIEW / INFO
