About the event

Chinabot is a platform and collective created to change the dialogue surrounding Asian music. Started in 2017, the multi-disciplinary label and network of Asian artists decided to cooperate on a new way to collect and promote exciting Asian music. 

Releasing undiscovered artists from Bahrain to Thailand, Chinabot is positioned at the junction point between the influence of Asian music on contemporary/traditional sounds, music outside the mainstream and the development of experimentation. Whether it’s Jazz folk music, experimental ambient or mutant techno, we celebrate exciting new music that falls between the gaps, a place for adventurous listening.

 - JAEHO HWANG

A Seoul-based DJ, producer, and visual artist, blends traditional Korean instrumentation with contemporary club music, drawing inspiration from the Buddhist concept of impermanent selfhood. His debut EP, "Non-Self/비자아," fuses dark, industrial club beats with Korean sound and samples, reflecting his exploration of identity in the digital age through the lens of anatta, or non-self. Featured in Resident Advisor, Boiler Room, and other renowned platforms, Hwang is a member of Chinabot and co-founder of Seoul's "Fragmented Service" collective, showcasing Seoul's sub-club scene and hosting international artists like ZULI and Dis Fig. Actively involved in Seoul's underground club scene, Hwang frequents venues like Cakeshop and Seoul Community Radio.
