If you like electronic music, have a certain understanding of the domestic music trend culture. Further on Shanghai, Beijing’s multi-store culture has its own perception. Then Ben is an unavoidable name.
He was one of the early exponents of Beijing’s club scene back in the mid-nineties, before anyone knew what club culture or electronic music was. China’s open door policy had not opened enough to let in the developments going on in the rest of the world, with the influx of music being heavily filtered from the mainstream pop culture trends of neighbouring Taiwan and Hong Kong. Ben Huang introduced the young funky things of Beijing to the international sounds of ‘real’ club beats. Strange as it may seem, there simply was no club scene in the People’s Republic of China.
Ben Huang set off on his creative path as a student of modern dance and fine arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. He then dipped his toes in the fashion world but with a major climate shift on the way in the dance music scene, Ben Huang gave up a budding career in fashion and found his calling in the Beijing music scene. Ben has more than 20 years of electronic music DJ experience, from the early smash hit Beijing 88 club to the current Shanghai Bund where the red, he never tired of their different stages of music, fashion awareness to gather in the DJ audience Of the population. But in addition to music, with the life experience of different, he began to play film photography, play cars, began to collect, began to reveal a Shanghai modern life of men more self-definition.
His creative expression comprised of varying styles from experimental, nu jazz, tech house to minimal techno. Huang’s music transported Beijing and Shanghai’s small underworld and kicked down its doors to the sounds from Detroit to Berlin. In no time, Ben Huang became one of the most heavily sought after DJs in Beijing and Shanghai. His sounds impressed European promoters and made him one of the funkiest exports to come out from the Middle Kingdom. Huang became one of the first ever Chinese DJs to break into the international scene, playing in venues from the Parisian Elysee-Montmartre to the famed Zurich Street Parade, alongside the world’s best. He has shared the stage with the likes of Laurent Garnier and Ritchie Hawtin, and burned the airwaves on Paris’ Radio FG.

For the music of Ben said, “Only in the face of the people I will know what to put music and how to put!” His sense of scene, as always, distinctive personality.
In photography, Ben devoted himself to the daily capture of city life. Whether in Shanghai, Beijing, other parts of the country or European cities. And all his hobbies, the lens showing a kind of post-industrial society, the myth. Ben through the lens of urban humanities to bring him everything. Elegant and rough in parallel, the future and the traditional often appear at the same time. He said that even in Beijing, where many of China’s most cutting-edge musicians had been inspired, the unique experience of urban life has made it possible for him to do something different. Today’s photos, the subtle and obvious, is still the mood. Photography, life, or a cup of coffee and red wine. We all like to tailor ourselves to live in the present style of meaning. Ben Huang may be one of them, do not like too much packaging, do what you like. Contemporary fashion and personal heart has a delicate balance.
“The soul of each of us is a container, so that the wonderful life to bring it!” Said by Ben Huang.
“Electronic music is not all dance music, and there are hundreds of different styles of dance music; Any place with music and people can be turned into a dance floor. You decide what to put there! The most important thing is whether the people playing music and the dancers have spirit, soul, feel.. ”
On the night of Friday, September 20th, Round 2 club held a grand promotion for “Ben Huang, landmark of Chinese underground dance music”, a treasure level DJ who has been playing for more than 20 years. Mark your calendar and don’t miss this wonderful party night!
