Nothing Nil is the vinyl debut of Shanghai-based electronic producer / DJ Knopha on new label Eating Music. Knopha is part of a small but growing underground electronic music scene in Shanghai along with artists like Endy (Groove Bunny Records) and China Social Club (NTS). Nothing Nil has a very pleasantly cold digital sound, which might sound strange coming from a site that treasures analog. The three tracks, which translate to 1,2,3, sit in a sort of driving, ambient downtempo zone with crystal pads, digital synths, and sampled percussion sounds. If you enjoy this, be sure to also check out Knopha’s new EP titled Gym on another new Chinese label Regret Sound.
