Red Buddha 红佛陀 和大家熟悉的 Buddha-Bar 佛之吧 没有任何关系，也不是像后者那样的潮流集散地——这是一个人、唱片生产商、音乐家和DJ，德国著名民族风电音制作人。到目前为止，1999年的《Tibet Trance 神秘的西藏》和2005年的《Siddharta In Space 太空悉达多》都是他的名品佳作。除他自己的工作以外，Red Buddha 红佛陀 作为生产商，休闲音乐集《Ibiza》和《World Music Cafe》等都是他的得意之作。
本张专辑是 Red Buddha 以中国元素为题材混音而成。
"China Lounge" - represents a musical bridge between sound gaps and allows different views. Views of new versions and
further developments of the concept of globalisation - from globalisation to a new phenomenon that is called glocalisation: The
combination of global and local, between far and near into something completely new.
Welcome to the musical China Lounge by Blue Flame Records.
This release impressively shows that globalisation is not necessarily an economical influenced one-way road from the West.
Globalisation may as well mean an enrichment through Southeast Asian culture, for example. "China Lounge" is no traditional lounge
release with purely traditional ethnic vibes, but ads, through the mix of modern-western and Asian traditional sounds to the trans-
It seems unimaginable that Western club music goes without the influence of traditional sounds from the Far Eastern hemisphere.
Wisdom, enlightenment and warmth of the ancient cultures of Asia combine well with Western innovative arrangements and production.
More than ever Asian sounds are anchored in what we call Western club music. The growing movement of immigrants to Europe and America
brought traditional Southeast Asian sounds into the Western cultures. These sounds were mixed with vibes of popular local club scenes
like Break Beat, Hip Hop or House. This resulted in a global triumph of newly developed styles, with the result of a thriving
landscape of the fabulous variety of genres.
The early origins of this phenomenon can be heard in tracks like Lover's Tears of Sow Keng Poon or Tongli Water Garden by Linda Wong.
Miss Shanghai heralds in the logical continuation, if the new avant-garde electronics such as the Sino-roots, and now living in New
York - The Shanghai Restoration Project or the producer Ian Widgery push further in this development. They integrate eastern sounds in
their cosmos and bring it to the dance floor. Ian Widgery became one of the most important hunters and collectors of this music and
also a fantastic producer. Red Buddha, as another landmark-magnitude and compiler of "China Lounge", brings in his love for Asian
sound and experience with The Spirit of Ladakh and White Bamboo.
The result is a cross continental magical sound from some extremely rare and previously unreleased productions included on this
compilation. The project "China Lounge" thus represents a musical bridge between sound gaps and allows different views. Views of new
versions and further developments of the concept of globalisation - from globalisation to a new phenomenon that is called
glocalisation: The combination of global and local, between far and near into something completely new.
A great mix of modern tunes mixed and ancient sounds features unreleased tracks from Ian Widgery and includes famous Shanghai band TMSK, which has not yet had an international release.
