Nurturing local talent and championing heavyweights, AVA is one of the best UK parties going
As part of a blossoming pan-Asian scene mining the areas of experimental club sounds, Taiwanese producer Stella Chung aka Scintii is pushing the boundaries. Growing up in Taipei, her time spent living in London (and attending Goldsmith’s) put her onto experimental club sounds, and it was there, influenced by free-wheeling collectives like Bala Club, that she recorded her first EP, ‘Mica’.
Having moved to Shanghai in 2017, she dropped the EP on Eternal Dragonz, and has since released on Shanghai labels like cult imprint SVBKVLT and Genome 6.66MBP. Inspired by pop as much as experimental electronics, Scintii’s productions tend to chop up and piece together crystalline sounds (including her own voice) to fashion ethereal and futuristic sonics.
Bass-heavy and exploratory, Scintii mixes “mostly tracks I don’t get to play in clubs but love,” she says. “A lot of old(ish) favourites.” Press play on her mix, and check the tracklist after the jump.
