On the second night of the Mid-Autumn festival holiday (Saturday, September 14, 2019), Round 2 will invite Mickey Zhang, the leading figure of Chinese underground electronic music, to the underground dance hall in tianjin city. A high-level music dancing party is waiting for you.

Mickey Zhang (Zhang Ran) is a godfather of Chinese dance music. His massive 23 years career spans DJing, producing, sound tracking, and numerous album releases. Taken together, he has become an ambassador for China’s burgeoning electronic mu- sic scene.

So where did he come from? Well, most people outside of China wouldn’t know the in- land Chinese province of Ningxia, but that’s where young Mickey was grew up. His artistic family ( = classical music, opera, and dance) was the ideal launch pad into the Beijing Dance Academy at age 11. A dance background may not be the norm for elec- tronic music producers, but if you think about it, it makes perfect sense for China’s premier dance music DJ.

As his career took off, Mickey went on to set many “firsts” in China’s growing electronic music scene: the 1st Chinese artist to perform at Berlin’s legendary Tresor club, the first to play at Sonar in Spain, MIDEM in Cannes, Wire in Japan; and the first to release an original electronic album in China itself. He also has a myriad of international col- laborations under his belt – including Laurent Garnier, Ken Ishii, Ishino, and Technasia (to name but a few).

Mickey has also played a key role in the wider electronic music industry in China. Back in 2004, he co-founded 02 Culture the company behind China’s massive electronic par- ty brand YEN. Mickey helped push YEN to support domestic music talent, rather than following others to slavishly chase after foreign DJs for the sake of a bit of ticket rev- enue. After just three years, it was clear that the strategy paid off – YEN was estab- lished as a leading player in the Asian electronic music scene and the hub for electron- ic music in China.

From here, Mickey’s love for electronic music spilled into many other areas. His tracks China and Good Evening Beijing were used by Lou Ye on the soundtrack of the award- winning film “Spring Fever”, as well as “Floating City Mystery”. An experimental collaboration with his brother Zhang Wei saw Chinese classical instruments being blended with electronic dance rhythms in the WHAI band. Mickey took on the job of musical director for Shanghai Fashion Week and the China edition of the Burning Man Promotional Video. He has also been on remix duty for Ye Mingzi’s Listen to your Heart, Ken Ishii’s The Axe Murderer, and Chinese star Eason Chan. He’s been on stage in panels at ADE, Canadian Music Week and the IMS Asia Pacific; and most recently was invited to be director of the 2017 Midi Electronic Music Festival.
