  • Chengdu's Kaishandao usually plays guitar, drum machines and various other instruments during her live hardware performances at TAG, the city's go-to dance sanctuary. She loves incorporating a medley of sounds during her sets, so it's no surprise to hear Destiny's Child, Mariah Carey and Congo Natty on the first single off her debut EP. Precise breaks, staggered percussion, bleeps and low-key techno come together in a punchy arrangement that reflects her diverse influences and her love for cheeky samples—listen closely and you can hear her recording of a Xinjiang rapper saying, "China has a lot of fake stuff."
