We thought it was probably time to tell you about other indie labels based in China other than bang on about Metal Postcard the whole time .First up we ought to let you know about Genjing who are Beijing-based record label that specializes in releasing vinyl of Chinese artists.They write on their website. “We aim to promote vinyl and DIY culture in China while creating links between the Chinese scene and DIY scenes around the globe. The bands retain all rights for their works and we aim to serve more as a promotional resource in support of the Chinese DIY community, spreading information about Chinese bands abroad while raising awareness of international DIY scenes within China.”

Any record store freak worth their while will already know about Tokyo’s endless mini record stores that only stock the Beatles oeuvre or another that might only stock Can reprints etc. We thought you might also like to be made aware of the few other shops that we’ve come across that might help you feed your desire to find Asian rock , electronic and underground tunes
