Chinese Man is a collective French trip-hop band created in 2004, originally from Aix-en-Provence. They are influenced by a wide range of genres, including hip-hop, funk, dub, reggae and jazz.
Their latest single release, The Drop, features input from Baja Frequencia and Scratch Bandits Crew, and extends their sonic footprint towards modern styles of electro, drum & bass, future bass. Their sound defies description as an original take on rhythmic, instrumental groove-making, joining modern elements of electronic ear-candy with a synth-heavy backbeat and dub-style breaks. The music video features a riveting performance from Régis Truchy, who internalizes the complexity of the song with body language that is equal parts Monty Python silly-walk and improvised jazz-dance.
Chinese Man is composed of DJ Marseille Zé Mateo, High Ku, and beat-maker SLY. This song is featured on our Instrumental playlist.
