When I was there in June there was some dubstep happening. There is a pretty big breakcore and dancehall community. I see you are playing at Yugong Yishan... it is a great spot... very weird.

Also, check out the Guanyin night on Tuesdays at Two Kolegas bar... ambient experimental stuff, but sort of at the heart of the chinese electronic scene (in Beijing).

You are hitting some great cities, for sure. Have a great time. I think you will be suprised at how open and up for it the scene is... much more vibrant than what I seeing in the US.

In the year 2006, not many people would even blink if you mentioned any of these... I went to the school in Beijing where the whole 1989 democracy movement was started (Peking U) and my teachers talked about these things openly and even showed us films on it. Things have changed alot, yet the perceptions stay the same.

Now, Falun Gong might get ya into some water, though.

exactly. western attitudes on china still aren't up to date despite the news' meme. last time i was out there was 2002 and i've wrote my thesis on (in short) china and captialism. like everything in china it's a question of scale. dubstep could and probably will kill it out there. please report back on how this goes mate!

Just need to know where to look. However, trance is an international virus.
