Pre-order on Boomkat here: boomkat.com/products/more-tea
Featuring field recordings from remote villages in China, More Tea delivers a tight melody, a great hook and awesome levels of funk and bass driven goodness. Top notch remixes are featured from established talent that is known for creating some of the best mayhem on dancefloors, namely Liquid Stranger, David Starfire and Mr. Bill and then also introduces emerging artists Sonia Calico from Taipei and Jason Hou from Beijing who each deliver some of the most tasteful remixes we could have expected.
Curated and instigated by Nathan Davis and his creative work as The Tea Syndicate, the project seeks to re-consider the culture of Gong Fu Cha (traditional Chinese tea) that’s sweeping the Western world at the moment. The samples are part of a much bigger sound library — The Taichung Archives — that was recorded in China over three decades ago by now-retired Taiwanese producer Alex Peng, and includes both studio sessions and field recordings in remote villages.
