Originally from Beijing, Gaohu has been heavily involved in the city’s underground music and party scene since the mid 90’s. He has played a wide range of parties, lounges, bars and clubs, and has helped to establish the foundation for the current EDM scene.
He has been revered as the king of chill-out & lounge music, creating a lounge party brand called “Mandala Music” with fellow Beijing DJ Huang Wei-wei. Together they put on some of the city’s most memorable parties playing a wide range of music including House, Nu Jazz, Rare chilled out grooves, World beats and Deep space techno. Not only a chill-out DJ, Gaohu has also made quite a reputation for himself as a house and techno DJ in the capital city. He has always been pushing the house vibe locally, and has received good acclaim by many musicians and party people, even earning himself a trip to Norway with fellow DJ Patrick Yu to play at the 2006 Polar Jazz Festival in Svalbard.
Gaohu’s personal ambitions, reflected in a constant search of a broader scope of creative musical expression, have in recent years resulted in his successful involvement in public art events. Driven by the idea “that there is more to it” he has ever since been experimenting with sound and possibilities to merge it with other art genres to create a Gesamtkunstwerk meeting the Zeitgeist of the 21st century. By doing so, Gaohu has always aimed to strain his Beijing roots. Personal experience of growing-up and living in China’s capital, as well as sounds of the city are strongly reflected in his music, serving as it’s underlying characteristics.
