20 songs, 20 artists. A mixtape lovingly curated for one of the world’s most exciting (and overlooked) independent scenes.
Wooozy is thrilled to present The Sound of Young China 2015 Mixtape. From sunny Guangzhou and cyberpunk Chongqing to the frigid northeast grasslands beyond Beijing. From shoegaze to “riot-weird”. This is the sound of China’s young and restless.
This is the second annual mixtape in this series (you can find our 2014 version here). As always, it goes out to you, the worldwide independent music community. Here, we present our pick of the most promising Chinese independent artists – artists who’ve probably flown under your radar – with the aim of showcasing the freshest sounds that collectively represent the creative force of China today.
We’re really excited to offer this to you and hope you’ll discover something cool. Bios and track-lists are contained within. You can also download the mixtape with a single click [Mediafire: here] or [ Mega: here].
