Psytrance is still relatively new in China, however over the last few years a small scene has started to emerge. Both Beijing and Shanghai have regular monthly parties. In addition cities such as Kunming and Chengdu also hold parties now and again. The main crews in China are, GoaProductions who run a record label under the same name and throw regular parties in Beijing, Shanghai and Kunming, Magic Garden who put on events now and again in Shanghai and Psyonic Boom in Hong Kong who are affiliated with the Manic Dragon label.
The People’s Republic of China (PRC) (simplified Chinese 中华人民共和国; traditional Chinese: 中華人民共和國, commonly known as China, is the largest country in East Asia and the most populous in the world with over 1.3 billion people, approximately one-fifth of the world’s population. It is a socialist republic (specifically a people’s democratic dictatorship according to its constitution) ruled by the Communist Party of China under a single-party system, and has jurisdiction over twenty-two provinces, five autonomous regions, four municipalities, and two largely self-governing Special Administrative Regions (Hong Kong and Macau). The PRC’s capital is Beijing.
Psyscene in CHINA
The scene in China is relatively small however it is growing all the time. The main driving force behind the scene has to be the GoaProductions crew. They throw regular parties in Beijing, Shanghai and Kunming. In addition they run a record label under the same name as a platform for international acts to grow a following within China and to expose Chinese producers to an international audience.
Other event crews in China include Magic Garden in Shanghai and Psyonic Boom in Hong Kong. The main artists and DJs of the scene include Atoned Splendor, Microgram, Gotama, Kodama, Solaris, Rigelmade and DaN. More and more DJs are emerging all the time, along with producers and décor artists and it won’t be long before a fully fledged scene has developed in China.
At the moment everyone that is here and is involved in the scene pretty much knows everyone else so its kind of a special time. Its Intimate and connected with no commerciality. There is a real desire to spread the word and switch more people on………
