偶像包袱 (Idol Baggage)
From 绿帽 GREEN HAT
A true student of international culture, Tzusing has grown up in Singapore, China, Taiwan, and the USA. Finally landing in China for a job, Tzusing simultaneously began DJing at one of Shanghai’s premiere slots, The Shelter. During this time, Tzusing refined his sound and his skills with lots of performances and home sessions figuring out the technology further. This led on to Tzusing releasing a run of 12” releases on the L.I.E.S. label with a heavy EBM influence on each. He didn’t stop there; the next step was naturally a debut record. This landed in 2017 and was inspired by the fantasy story of The Smiling, Proud Wanderer by Jin Yong. This new record, Green Hat, has been designed around the legend of the Green Hat in Chinese folklore. A symbol of infidelity, a two-timing wife gave her husband a green hat to wear when he left town as a sign to her lover to visit. When she was caught, the green hat symbol became a sign of broken trust. Taken from the album, which is out at the end of March, Idol Baggage is a taster of the whole pudding to keep us extra patient.
A breath and a buzz launch the music into action with rhythmic sonics that blend into swerving bass and rattling drums. Distant synths move closer in quick strings as robotic clamours add spirals of percussion with oriental sounds. A barrage of rhythms ensues with tangents and harmonies rising from the swelling mass of sound. A manic yet structured paradox moves forward with semi-repetitive patterns and odd sounds that leap from the whole. Fascinating and exciting, Idol Baggage from Tzusing thrashes about in musical bliss to its own inner energy.
