Wild City #136: thruoutin
30 June 2017
American-born, Beijing-based artist thruoutin has a sound that is instantly recognisable.
With work varying from project to project, thruoutin’s singular take on electronic music focuses on organic, lush noise. The electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist has been based in China since 2009 and has toured a multitude of countries in Asia as well as various cities in the US and Canada - featuring on several Chinese and international labels.
After piquing our interest with a few submissions, thruoutin came through with a mix for Wild City.
Just shy of an hour, this exquisite mix is full of songs you’re never going to hear anywhere else. Showcasing a diverse range of tunes coming out of China and its neighbouring countries, thruoutin spotlights genres from glitch-hop to trap, ambient, lo-fi and electronica.
It’s rare to hear a country’s sound being spread out so enticingly in a mix, but thruoutin manages to do just that. Favourites include tracks from J-Fever, Yider and the inimitable BLOODZ BOI.
Tune in and peep the tracklist below.
"This specially tailored mix for The Wild City serves as a guided introduction to the current independent-electronic and hip hop music communities within China and its surrounding areas." - thruoutin
