Beijing-based producer and multimedia artist Liu Yiwei — aka FAR MEDIA LAB, aka FAR/∞ — just made a Soundcloud page yesterday. On it is an 11-track album, his first official release. It's called F/A/R/∞ or 10 or 10-release or something. I don't know, Yiwei is kind of a cryptic dude. He's an artist, you see.
Anyway, F/A/R/∞ or whatever it's called is a solid mix of by turns ambient and subtly banging minimal techno. Nice blend of vaguely electro-acoustic sounds (pianos, snares) and straight up computer-brain noise (like, "bzzzziiiiiiiilllllllttzzzz"). Stream the whole thing here.
You can check a live set from FAR/∞ tomorrow night at The Other Place, where up-and-coming producer/DJ Menghan will launch her campaign to destabilize the Beijing electronic music underground. Yiwei will perform along with fellow signal scramblers iimmune and Charm, plus DJs Menghan and MMS. Let your mind dance.
