Chinabot is a platform and collective created to change the dialogue surrounding Asian music. In 2017, a digital diaspora community of Asian artists decided to cooperate on a new way to collect and promote exciting Asian music.
Jaeho Hwang is a London/Seoul-based DJ, producer, and visual artist who recontextualises traditional Korean instrumentation and brings it into the contemporary club music scene. After releasing his first EP on Chinabot in 2019, he has been featured in DJ Mag, BBC Radio 6 Music, Boiler Room, XLR8R, and Mixmag Korea. Now based primarily in Seoul, he is involved with Seoul Community Radio and Nek-O Future Club.
Rieko Whitfield is a London-based, Japanese-American artist and musician who weaves non-linear speculative mythologies into expanded performance.
Whitfield embodies supernatural avatars through ritualistic world-building to channel emotive narratives and song writing. Her tentacular storytelling draws from microcosms of lived experience, expanding to political, ancestral, and more-than-human macrocosms. Whitfield’s practice is a proposition for radical optimism in a time of collective transformation.
Cosmic Caz is London-based, multidisciplinary artist, crafting otherworldly, euphoric spells through producing, performing, and DJing. Their sonic spells are fabricated with fast techno, industrial sonority, hardtek hypnosis; uplifted with euphoric trance, acid atmospheres and a radiance of psy vibrations. Rendering a mesmerizing powerful sound journey, transcending boundaries of self-expression, and conjuring a cathartic liberation from within.
DJ Tusap (DJ)
Saphy Vong is the founder of Chinabot. Unexpected compositions, rhythmic experiments, Fake techno, undiscovered pop songs, Cambodian Bek Sloy, mutant electronic, minimal wave and the passion found in inexhaustible musical subcultures are expected in his DJ set.
