Zhai Ruixin was born in Beijing, and in 2003 began releasing music under the moniker me:mo – the same year he created his personal music labelfRUITYSHOP and issued his DEMO album(300 CDR). In 2006 he published the album “Static Scenery”, then in 2007 “Acoustic View” published in "shanshui record(china)",(2009 “Acoustic View” reissued in "Disasters by Choice(Italy)"). 2010 "Peking Scene" released in "Plop(japan)", ranked 85th in a Top 100 Best Albums Poll launched by The Silent Ballet.
Me:mo is the first Chinese musician to approach such music genres as Folktronica and Indie-Electronica. His own personal style is based on a mixture of different musical influences.
After having absorbed this fusion of styles to their fullest, he began to immerse himself in expressing the most soothing and intimate sides of electronic music, revealing to listeners the warmest aspects of this genre. Recurring themes in me:mo’s music are centred around the lasting impacts of memory (hence the origin of his name), city landscapes (especially the rapidly ever-changing Beijing), nostalgia, and all the subtle sensations that fall as drops of rain into everyone’s life, disclosing to the listener through music a plethora of images related to these emotions and experiences.
Charm is the solo project of Josh Feola, a Beijing-based musician, writer, and event curator. Feola has been active in Beijing's underground experimental music scene since 2010 via his organizational platform Pangbianr (pangbianr.com). Charm is an ongoing performance and recording project incorporating field recordings, "found" cultural sounds, and decaying feedback/noise/drone collages.
柴德林／牟建华 don particle masks and send their haunting melodies and deep, oozing oscillators through a tangled web of spinning tape. Threaded through the layers of shifting haze are songs that are likely to get stuck on repeat and spend the next week banging around in your head. Loud, hypnotic, and beautiful.. come with an open mind and the duo will surely step inside it and set up shop.
The swirling ambient synths and driving beats underneath them make up the sound of Noise Arcade. All of the music is improvised and programmed live.
