Meng Qi (Mengite)

There aren't a lot of electronic music (at least, pure electronic music) coming from mainland China these days, but Mr. Meng Qi is an exception - he started making electronic music at age 15, and signed with Muzicolor & got his own electronic label - China Vibe. Interestingly, while Meng Qi is influenced by UK artists such as The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, and Fatboy Slim, his electronic music has a Chinese traditional music twist - which was intended as his own label wants to focus on making dance music mixed with Chinese sounds.

The great thing is - Meng Qi is definitely looking out for us oversea fans ^_^ His album "Landscape In Love" is available for free download at the Muzicolor site (just click on MPFree). I'm looking forward to seeing the expansion of "China Vibe," and also the expansion of Chinese electronic music in general. Go Meng Qi!
