New Experimental album out: “Beijing Frogs of the Night”

Fish riders final light

 

https://djangsan.bandcamp.com/album/beijing-frogs-of-the-night

“Beijing Frogs of the Night” is the first collaborative experimental album between Djang San and Clancy Lethbridge.
The album gathers sounds of Beijing nights recorded by Djang San here and there and mixed on bass lines played by Clancy Lethbridge.This album works as a document, drunken conversations and moments of boredom taken as snapshots of sounds here and there in the last few months in Beijing.

Even though it’s only five tracks, some are very long, one is a 15 minutes conversation between Djang San and Calncy eating Sushi.

This is a first collaborative experimental album, more will follow.

All bass lines by Clancy Lethbridge

Directors of “fête de la musique 2016 in Beijing” + Show at 77 Theater + the whole program.

This year I have the pleasure to be one of the directors who have organized the “Fête de la musique”  in Beijing along with Elie Rosenberg of the French Lab and Will Griffith of LiveBeijingMusic as well as a media partner with “Beijing Underground” for the fête de la musique helping to spread the gospel about the event that is also happening all around China.

Beijing Underground is a Facebook group I have created and that I manage, home of almost 19,000 members today and the biggest group about underground Chinese music on Facebook.

The first part of Fête de la musique that took place on the 19 of June is over and was a success.

As one of the director from the trio of directors who made “Fête de la musique” this year in Beijing, I am happy to present to you the program for tuesday 21 of June 2016.

There will be more than 10 venues on tuesday as well as a workshop about Electronic music at Dada that will start at 6PM to learn how to compose music with electronic instruments.

I have modified the original design of these posters myself and created a few more (despite the one done by Pink for Temple Bar).

Here is a generic poster to help you.

Djang San “Eye​.​爱​.​Ai​.​I” (Part 1 and 2) Release party tonight 26 of May 2016 at Yugong Yishan.

eye3 copie

Picture by Clancy Lethbridge 

 

What is it that we see with our eyes ? What is it that we perceive ?

The same sound can mean different things “Eye” in English is “Ai” (Love) in Chinese.

Am “I” what my “eye” can see ? Am I what I love or the mirror of the ones who love me ?

Recorded in Beijing in 2016, the two parts of “Eye​.​爱​.​Ai​.​I” are 50 minutes of music on one album in two parts.

This play on words is a way to explore once more the depth of possibilities given by looking at the world from 

different perspectives.

Recorded in Beijing with Nicolas Mège, Clancy Lethbridge, Octavio, Nora, Nalc and Dick Marvel.

“Eye​.​爱​.​Ai​.​I” part 1 and 2 are a sequel to “Bridges” part 1 and 2. 

The bridges have been crossed.

In this album, mainly based on instruments electric zhongruan and electric pipa (both of my own designs),

I have tried to extend once more the possibilities of these instruments, with the goal to integrate them in a more global

idea of music, for them not to only be instruments belonging to a place in space and time in the past

but to a global culture that is everyday built by millions of people around the world.

We can be anything we want, if we allow ourselves to be.

Enjoy the music.

 Djang San.

作为一个多面艺术家,张思安发表过包括爵士、电音、摇滚、世界音乐、中国民谣、实验……在内的诸多风格的音乐。从2000年起,他创新使用中国传统乐器中阮和琵琶,让它们在现代音乐中再次焕发光彩。2011年,张思安创立的保险超人乐队在上百支乐队参赛的世界乐队挑战赛中,获得中国区冠军。

他的音乐概念也延伸至了哲学领域,并提倡理解和交换不同文化之间的需求。

继2015年韩国巡演之后,张思安将于这个夏天登陆日本。在此之前,请抓住他的乐队,就在愚公移山!

After 35 albums, Djang San comes back with a new album on 26th of May at Yugong Yishan.

Much anticipation and mystery is surrounding this new release that will be unveiled only a few days before the concert.

An artist with many different faces, Djang San has released all kinds of music from any style including jazz, electronic music, rock, world music, Chinese folk,

rock, experimental and more….

In 2011 Djang San won the Battle of the Bands in Mainland China and Greater China against about 100 bands with the band he had founded « The Amazing Insurance Salesmen ».

Since 2000 he has been re-inventing Chinese instruments zhongruan and pipa by transforming the use of these instruments into modern music.

His music also extends to philosophical concepts and to the need to advocate more exchanges and understanding between different cultures.

After touring Korea in 2015, Djang San will play Japan in the summer of 2016, catch him and his band at YGYS !

Djang San + Band has been invited to play in Japan in the summer of 2016, spread the news !

It is confirmed, and we have our plane tickets !

After playing Korea last year in October, Djang San, Carlo V. Fuentes and Clancy Lethbridge will be bringing the music of the electric zhongruan and more for the first time to Japan :-).

Djang San (ジャンサン)、本名エリー ジャン・セバスチャンさんは中国のアンダーグラウンドミュージックシーンで有名で認められたアーティストです。彼が出した複数のアルバムを聴くと特別な体験になります。彼の個性的なスタイルはラジオでよく聴く中国ポップとアングロサクソンバラエティとかなり違います。 自分の音楽を”エクスペリメンタルミュージックとエレクトロとジャズとロックとクラシックミュージックと中国と欧米文化の宇宙交配”と説明します。 彼のスタイルは実際にユニークです。 最近のアルバムのタイトル”Music Dumplings” (音楽餃子)がその種々な様式からうまれた音楽スタイルを現してます。ただし、一つ一つのアルバム、一つ一つの曲が特有な味わいを持ちながら全体が調和してて、彼の帰化した国中国の文化と同じく、豊富な変化を付けた音楽になってます。 ピーパーとチョンルアンという中国の伝統的な楽器をエレキにした彼が、ジャズとロックと民俗音楽とエレクトロとエクスペリメンタルミュージック等を通してその楽器を生き替えらせました。 30個以上のアルバムをだして、ジャンサンは間も無くバンドと一緒に日本にやってきます!2016年の8月、はこだて国際民俗芸術祭に出ます。見逃さないで下さい!

In the meantime, see you at Yugong Yishan on the 26 of May !

For this year’s christmas I have decided to give a new album for free download.

It’s called “8 Bit Boy” and it’s a sort of hommage to my childhood memories of video games.

Download it for free or contribute to my wallet for the next album 🙂 here.

a0349999541_10

“8 Bit Boy” is built on the idea of a fictional video game with 8 Bit Boy, the hero of the game, being at the center of it. Imagine a game close to the idea of Super Mario or another platform game from the 80’s, this is its sound track.

See you soon !

The Beijing Underground Showcase #2

BU22

 

OSHI (DJ Set)

DJ Oshi will be presenting a special set for the Beijing Underground Showcase. 

From the humble beginnings of a local DJ, through to headlining famous club nights and parties on either sides of the globe, Oshi’s musical career has been a rocky ride to the stars. His technical ability to pull sounds from the most unlikely range of genres, combined to provide audibly stunning tracks and remixes has given him somewhat of an impressive reputation in and out of industry circles. 

Starting in 2000 as a DJ for the first independent radio station in his native France, Oshi’s skills as a turntablist and Electro Hip Hop producer forced him into the limelight. He was quickly given the opportunity to present his own Hip Hop show, gaining the respect of both his peers and his rivals. He went on to remix a number of songs for well known Hip Hop producers and Electro bands such as Sayag Jazz Machine (PIAS) and Gong Gong to name a few.

As a producer, Oshi has many advantages when it comes to DJing and with so many years spent invested in the music that he loves, OSHI’s skills allows him to use a unique method for creating originals sets for his audience. Simply through conversation, the emotion and passion he feels is evident and is reflected throughout his work. OSHI has been smashing dancefloors and never failing to deliver an unforgettable night ever since.

Spotting a market opening for his distinctive style, OSHI is now focusing on bringing a new electro vibe into the Asian scene by combining his production, remixes, bootlegs and turntablism skills in a hype mash-up of Electro, Gansta House, HipHop, techno and Dubstep. He is undoubtedly one of the hottest choice’s in Asia, providing the ultimate selection of latest and retro tracks for the club scene.

Horse Radio:

Horse Radio will be presenting a special duo set “Two Horses”  for the Beijing Underground Showcase. 

Mongolians bands are a dime a dozen nowadays. And let’s be honest, it’s gonna be hard to top Hanggai. But that’s precisely why Horse Radio (formerly Taan Towch) have caught my attention this year. They aren’t trying to be rock stars. It’s relatable, accessible, genuine, and most importantly full of life.
Will Griffith, LiveBeijingMusic 《Best Bands 2014》

HorseRadio是远古与现代的对话,故事或从一本无字之书而来,或从老人在夕阳下低声吟唱的古调而来。雪山与森林是梦境之源,游牧迁徙的始终是对自然的崇敬与信仰,HorseRadio是这样的歌者,即使言语已失去诗般的灵性,但跃动的心仍用深邃的歌声寻找往昔、找寻自我。自2012年6月组建至今,HorseRadio褪去了TaanTowch明朗的宝石光芒,更显成熟与诡秘,人员变动与更名确为一种成长与延续,这在乐队对传统民谣及实验调式的全新演绎中可见一斑。
HorseRadio生于传统的故土,虽带有些许鬼气,但其更愿成为最原始的土著,不需任何标签与任何定义,只为感受自己的感受。
HorseRadio在音乐风格上致力多元与融合,从不刻意刻画与固化音乐模式,新古典式的乐器搭配与自由唱法的运用皆为内心的呼唤与指引,唯一需秉承的传统便是‘创新’,HorseRadio正为实验性的另类蒙古音乐而积淀。

Nakoma:

Quotes from Dr. Smartass, one of Beijing’s premier underground music promoters

Punk is not merely a musical genre but a spirit and onceyou check out NAKOMA you’ll see that it’s not always what you say but how much heart you put into what you play, and nobody who has seen NAKOMA can deny that theur intricate musicianship is punk-as-fuck and pure heart”

The tandem of Tim and Nico trade off guitar and bass riffs like a sonic Batman and Robin. Percussionist Linda Westman pounds out the Bat-signal with her intricate beats. Within the first minute of their set you will hear why Linda is hailed by many as one of the best drummers performing in Beijing today”

Here’s the brass tacks, and if you don’t like it, well tough shit because I speak in rock’n’roll FACT. This is NAKOMA. For the uninitiated, this IS prog punk. This IS the legacy of what Greg Ginn – long before he lost his fucking mind and had benefits to take care of his fucking cats – was doing all the way back with BLACK FLAG on half of the “Family Man” Album and pretty much all of the “Process of Weeding Out”, except that this is light years beyond that because, unlike BLACK FLAG back in the early 80s – people GET IT now (and also: all three members of NAKOMA are sane people … Fuck the “stoner rock” moniker. Save that for WHAI or other bands that basically sound like video game music. THIS is rock’n’roll. THIS is fucking punk. The only thing better is watching and hearing them do it live (‘cause you can’t see Nicola Mazzei barefoot and gonzo, and both he and Tim moving around like orbiting satellites to Linda, who is the planet locked in the orbit of percussion)”

Djang San + Band:张思安与乐队:

Re-inventor of Chinese classical instruments zhongruan and pipa by electrification, philosopher, poet, composer, guitar hero, DJ, one man orchestra, music pioneer and explorer of new sounds, Djang San has been doing music in China since the year 2000. An artist with many faces, Djang San has also won the battle of the bands in Mainland China and Hong Kong against 100 bands in the year 2011.

Djang San has so far released 35 albums, the music styles of the albums range from Jazz to electro, rock, classical music, experimental music and more. Creator of a theory of intelligence, the personality of Djang San takes many different shapes in his many different projects.

As a one man band, Djang San plays seven different instruments on stage including guitar, flutes, electronic devices and synthesizers.

Djang San + Band is an extension of Djang San, a trio based on an electric version of Chinese instrument zhongruan he has created himself in 2014. The band is now extending its playlist to all of Djang San’s albums. The Amazing Insurance Salesmen, a band started in 2009, is Djang San’s attempt to link psychedelic rock, math rock and punk rock.

As a DJ, DJ 3San creates a mix between modern electro and techno with samples of jazz, blues, and classical music. Djang San also plays Jazz, bossa nova, and other styles of music with other musicians in China.

在音乐的道路上,张思安大部分时间独自前行,他曾以(几乎)每月出版一张专辑而闻名。2013年他组建了新的乐队。在这三人组合中,他与一名贝斯手和一名鼓手合作,同时将中国乐器“中阮”置于乐队的中心地位。他无疑大大革新了这一中国传统乐器的使用。乐队整体风格多样,像是带有中国风格的民谣,兼具摇滚、爵士、电子等其他乐风。

张思安原名让-塞巴斯蒂安·艾利,人们也叫他J.S.。J.S.于2000年踏上中国的土地。2010年,他以“保险超人乐队”参加了中国摇滚大赛并在香港赢得冠军。他一直在电子和实验音乐领域孜孜不倦地探索。他的音乐很难归类。他也许是第一个用中阮作曲的外国人,也是第一位使用这一乐器演奏爵士乐的音乐家。

CHARM:


   
Josh Feola has been active in Beijing’s scene since 2009 as a writer, curator and musician, most notably as former drummer of Chui Wan and now of Subs. Now he’s added yet another line to his CV: Charm, a solo electronic music project. He talks to Liz Tung about his newest creative outlet

How do you describe your music?
I would call it a field recording- and percussion-based drone. I think drone is a key word because it’s really amorphous; sometimes there’s a semblance of a beat or a rhythm or some kind of structure but it fades away very quickly.
You’ve played in bands as a drummer. How is this different?
For me this is the first time I’m doing a band [where] I call all the shots. Everything is coming from me, so there’s no one else to fall back on. I have no background as a songwriter, so thinking about making music on my own is the biggest difference.
So is it all improvisation?
It’s like 99.999 percent improvised; I don’t even really practice.
What kind of mood, if any, are you trying to evoke when you play?
Contemplative, I guess. In someways it’s me trying to recreate my own sonic memories, which aren’t directly correlated to any specific mood. In general it’s a bit dark, but it’s not depressing – I guess sombre would be the word for it.
Your approach to music is fairly intellectual.
Yeah, I’m definitely hyper contextualised, so on one hand I’m always thinking about how I can make what I’m doing meaningful in the context of the Beijing music scene. But on the other hand, I still have that kind of punk strain where I want to viscerally affect people. I’m not doing 30-second powerviolence songs, but I am using sound to shake people up and get them out of their normal state.

 

Little Punk:


Little Punk” is the English-turned-stage name-turned amorphous broken folk project of Jiangxi province singer and songwriter Huang Pei. Her musicis simple and complex, wry and wrenching minimal acoustic compositions that tell stories of depression, desperation, love, and happiness. Her debut record was self-released in 2012, and since then, she’s moved to Beijing and played sporadic shows here and there, whilst also working on an acting and film career.  Currently,she’s writing new material, playing with different Beijing musicians, and working on new releases for Beijing-based vinyl label Genjing.

Orange Bud:

Orange Bud is the brain child of bass player and DJ, Peter Stone. This up and coming band explores a wide range of styles from Dub, or Minimal, Deep, funk and anything in the fringes of genre conventions. All under a shroud of jazz and auditory pop culture inserts.

On Bass, machines : Peter Stone
On Drums : Marco Bangs.
On keyboard : Thomas Klein
On Saxophones : Fabrice Genfould

J个:


Life is full of questions. Why is the sky blue? What is the purpose of existence? There is, however, one question that stands out amongst the rest… What on Earth is ‘Zhege’?! The answer to this question is too complex and profound to be put into words, so we will tell you only this. 4 contrastingly unique personalities united with one goal in mind; To play loud music and make some cool sh**. This is Zhege.
