Chinabot celebrates its 4th anniversary with a new label compilation. Featuring Experimentalists and producers from across Asia, Tetra Hysteria Manifesto has a full spectrum of styles.

Tetra Hysteria Manifesto is 14 tracks from many of the first artists affiliated with Chinabot, as well as showcasing new artists, including exclusive tracks from Korean musician Arexibo. Shangai-based producer Laughing Ears returns on track Black Swan, as does Jaeho Hwang in collaboration with his niece and nephew for a cathartic electronic lullaby and Kyoto based Seaketa returns with hyperactive arpeggios.

The compilation also features a collaboration between OHYUNG and Korean American luci liyou. Thai noise activist Pisitakun returns with a soundtrack to the 2010 Thai military crackdown, while French avant-garde cellist Vincent Laju and South Korean Samin Son collaborate on a fully improvised track that blurs the line between strings and groaning alien vocalisations, and Japanese King Rambo Sound showcases his dirty acid industrial dub.

New to Chinabot is Juan Arminandi, an experimental percussive stringed instrument builder from West Borneo whose commissions include Raja Kirik and Senyawa. He uses his music as a statement about the rampant ecological destruction of his native Pontianak. We also welcome psychedelic noise metal jams by the young Vietnamese band Rắn Cạp Đuôi to the label.

Tetra Hysteria Manifesto focuses on the number 4, a common tetraphobia which is considered to be bad luck in a lot of parts of Asia. Some companies avoid the use of number 4 in aircraft registrations, building blocks, and smartphone releases, skipping from version 3 to 5.

The release celebrates and plays with the fun idea of superstition and not skipping or avoiding the use of number 4. It symbolises a radical acceptance that some things are out of control, against the desire to control things that we may not necessarily have in our power. The future is uncertain. We live in a world surrounded by superstitions. One person’s belief is another person’s myth.

Every one of the artists featured here embrace the here and now, and what’s to come. The protest element from the 3 previous compilations is not limited to politics on this 4th edition.

'This roster expansion includes artists new to the label, as well as many exclusives. Imagining these artists performing at a single festival, our imaginations start to soar. The Asian electronic scene is alive and well; the Chinabot label is increasingly relevant; and there’s a lot more great music left to discover. '
(A Closer Listen)

'Chinabot celebrates its fourth anniversary with a 14-track compilation which is a visceral experience, drawing together club and experimental music in a dizzying array of forms. A rich tapestry of modern voices.'
(DJ Mag)

'Sonically moving through experimental, glitch, noise and other off kilter offerings, the release showcases 14 tracks from label mates including Arexibo, Laughing Ears, Seakta and King Rambo Sound, as well as fresh faces like Rắn Cạp Đuôi and Juan Arminandi.'
(The Ransom Note)

'Always highly experimental, but with an in-your-face directness that always thinks about the party and can still be ambient which washed with all footwork waters and named club abstractions, transports the 180+ BPM terror into transcendent depths, in which, in addition to all the necessary percussive extremism, can even do poetry with neoclassical accompaniment or nice electronica'
(Groove Magazin)

'There’s a lot of innovation and diversity on display throughout this compilation, such that one couldn’t possibly categorize the whole thing as a single entity. Each track has a fascinating, original concept behind it. It’s definitely worth giving every track a listen to get an idea of what is being made by the young, up-and-coming artists of the region.'
