Tangsuan Radio Beijing China
Show: Tangsuan RetroDance / Dance, Hip-Hop, Electro, Pop
In China an official FM radio station is not allowed to interview artists and has to transmit mostly paid-for promotion material. By founding the online radio station Tangsuan Radio in 2004 Demone Liu (a photographer and graphic designer, whose artwork graces numerous covers of Chinese mainstream acts) and Stanley Zhao have found a way how to broadcast unconditionally independent music which is does not necessarily conform with the system. Instead they establish a sounding board for creative minds and culturally interested people.
“Guests are welcomed to say whatever they want – the sharper the better – except foul language,” says Demone about China’s now most popular web station. Together with Pump Su (aka Ruishu Wang) he hosts the show „Tangsuan Retro Dance“. There’s also a party series in Beijing of the same name where you can hear only Western dance music originating from old vinyl and Golden Oldies from China.
