One of Kunming's finest DJ/Producers back-to-back with one of Beijing's finest DJ/Producers makes this a very special ItIsWhatItIs.
X.L.F. (Xiao Linfeng), Beijing’s pinnacle promoter, DJ, and recording artist, is most recognized for his diverse range of electronic music styles. Known for his synthesizer programming and rhythmic grooves, his selective sound has continually evolved over the years. Effused from progressive trance, acid house, tech-house, and minimal techno, X.L.F.’s music has reached beyond states of classification today. As a DJ, X.L.F. creates a “sense of audio history”, and is skilled in the art of harmonizing colliding genres; from warm funk to psychedelic acid, violent Techno to abstract Cologne “academism”; each one of his sets is a unique tale of intrigue.
In 2006 Xiao Linfeng set up his “electronic orchestra” to create a unique installment of trance with the full length album release of >. The following year marked a watershed moment for X.L.F. as he began to embrace the German minimal techno sound. 2007 was also the year he helped co-found Acupuncture Records, China’s premiere independent electronic music label. The original group made up of 8 DJs was cultivated during private sessions at X.L.F.’s recording studio on the outskirts of Beijing.
