Tzusing

Right in the middle of a flawlessly streamlined techno set, don’t be surprised when Tzusing suddenly drops an Asian pop classic. Based between Shanghai and Taipei but born in Malaysia and educated in Chicago, the artist has fully embraced the complicated intersection of personal, social and national identity. In his own music – released on labels including Cititrax, L.I.E.S. and Public Possession – Tzusing’s constant state of dislocation is channeled into cathartic electronics inflected with off-kilter half step rhythms, odd harmonic textures, and thick, unnaturally resonant drums. And whether he riles up a steamy dance floor or unveils another mind-boggling release, the common denominator is his unique mix of sweet subversion and serious fun.
