Diamond by A.M.U

I’ll start by mentioning that you can count the number of Chinese electro artist worth knowing about on one hand, and with A.M.U, it’s definitely your right thumb you should be raising. The album name Diamond fits without a doubt, as this truly is a rare gem. A.M.U has shown surprising maturity for a Chinese kid, so far away from all the western hype, and he is already leading the 8-bit music craze in the Middle Kingdom.

Heavy beats, insane melodies, smart programming and unusual bleeps … A.M.U’s ability to provide strong dance floor tracks straight out his Gameboy comes from his experience touring and smashing Beijing and Shanghai’s clubs with his unexpected DJ sets. Do not miss the chance to listen to Diamond – this jewel of an EP will surely end as your favourite new 8-carat ear piece!

This is not totally about chip, this is about ass-kicking data beats to shake your butt around, even if you are a cheaptoon nerd or a piping hot gurrl.
