China Expedisound - Various artists
World music, electronic
After exploring the African continent and the great Mongol areas, it is the turn of the Yunnan province in China to welcome this new journey.
China Expedisound is a foolish crossing cultures and thoughtful, successful alchemical fusion of the experience-based travelogue, exploring the unknown and its sublimation into the sound and visual experimentation. A transcendent story ... the story of trance in dance ...
These unlikely Engagement between the mythology of the Naxi (Yunnan ethnic minority), the Baisha (popular music of the Naxi) and libertarian ideals of tekno travelers dented by the LSQ and its component "Anti-TAZ" are one of the most compelling episodes Expedisound the series.
Expedisound China is ultimately one of the most eloquent results on the concrete reality of the Utopias of today ... This is sound but we speak beyond music. Here electro and Baisha Naxi ravers and just talk to the South of the Clouds.
The result certainly will exceed all your expectations. (Yvan @ Ear of Moscow)

CHINA REMIX CONTEST
Since the release of Mongolia Expedisound in 2006, Switch Creative Network invited the french label I.O.T Records to present the project Expedisound in Florence, Italie.
In 2008, was the time of Mongolia Expedisound, followed by China Expedisound four years later. In both occasions, a remix contest was proposed to the local producers based on the soundbanks collected during the two trips.
The aim of the contest, like the one of Expedisound Albums series, was in fact to rework the samples and create atmospheres that would invite the listener to a musical trip. For each contest, 5 tracks has been selected that you will be now able to download and share!
A huge thanks to all producers participating, to to Switch Creative and Fabbrica Europa for providing the opportunity to present the project in Italy and to all the ones that keep on supporting the project.
"Thanks to Lapo Grossi for mastering and Leonard Politi to make it happen!"
Special thanks to the Jury : Andrea Mi, Stefano Gaz, Antonio Ardiccioni , Leonard Politi, Cyberskum
