Crowd Lu: Oh yeah

Taiwanese singer-composer Crowd Lu, also known as the "Musical Wizard, Who Survived Rolling Over by a Bus," wowed the crowds in Cannes during the Created in Taiwan MIDEM 2010 showcase. Crowd Lu won Best Composer and Best New Artist at the 20th Golden Melody Award for his single "100 Ways of Living" in 2008.

Low Wormwood: Who
Low Wormwood - We Can't Help Kissing Each Other - Who
We say take a little Lee Hazlewood, sprinkle with Nick Cave, Tindersticks and some rice wine and you have the wonderfully maudlin and distinctly Chinese Low Wormwood. As usual with mainland bands, a great name as well.

Mavis Fan & 100%: Master

Nicknamed the "Little Wizard of Music" for her smash hit album, The Little Demon Girl's Magic Book in 1996, Taiwan singer Fan Xiaoxuan, aka Mavis Fan, joined her rock band 100% to perform songs from their second album "Innocent" at the Created in Taiwan MIDEM 2010 showcase... Theater and glam, with a dash of rock.

Fanzui Xiangfa: Kill Your Television

The sound of angry youth emanating from Beijing 2009. With songs such as "Talk is Poison" ,"Go No Slow" and our choice for the pod "Kill Your Television". The sound might not be 100% (they call it Chinese Thrashcore) original but it certainly sounds heartfelt to us and that's the important thing.

Wu Tiao Ren: Green and Grey

The Guangzhou-based Haifeng-bred duo just brought their their raw, Guangdong-folk wailings to the Fringe Club in Hong Kong as part of City Festival's Guangzhou Live series. This track, Green & Grey is from their debut album County Stories.

Bei Bei He and Shawn Lee: Into the Wind

Into the Wind by Guzheng performer/composer Bei Bei He and Ubiquity Records producer Shawn Lee marries a unique blend of ancient tradition with studio trickery. With Lee adding equal doses of hip hop, electric jazz, and soul sensibility to the backing tracks, the captivating sound of Bei Bei's Guzheng comes alive on peaceful mellow joints as much as it does on Kung-Fu flavored funk tunes.

at17: When The Last Apple Falls From The Tree

The ever popular canto-indie-pop duo of Eman Lam and Ellen Joyce Loo just held a series of concerts at the HK Arts Centre. This slow-growing acoustic-cum-electronic track in Putonghua, is from the Blue EP, part of the series of four EPs in their Over the Rainbow series released last year.
