Releasing Manchuria

Announcing the debut album from Chinese Electronic Music Project - MANCHURIA.

This is a collection of songs made over the 4 years with multiple collaborators combining traditional instrumentation native to my adopted hometown in northeastern China (formerly known as Manchuria) with modern production and electronic styles including breakbeat, drum and bass, and more.

I have lived for a number of years on the China - North Korean border and after marrying a local girl, have essentially re-grown up in that culture over the past 20 years. We are now raising our children to be proud of their northeastern Chinese culture and heritage, and if you are wondering - yes, even my Mandarin Chinese language is even spoken with the local accent.

I hope this album helps people become more curious about Manchuria and the huge influence it has had in global history - even if it seems to be a forgotten part of the world now.

Now available exclusively on Bandcamp:
