Much like their sister label Siamese Twins Records, JIN are interested in showcasing local talent as well as pushing music from across Asia. The Taipei-based imprint have compiled a multiplicity of styles by some of Taiwan’s most exciting artists on ‘十十零壹’.
The EP is set to be released on Double Ten Day, a public holiday in Taiwan that has become a celebration of Taiwanese culture and independence. Featuring music by five of Taiwan’s finest producers, 50% of the proceeds from the release are to be donated to Taiwanese environmental NGO Green Citizen’s Action Alliance (GCAA) 綠色公民行動聯盟.
Written during a reflective period in September 2020, Ocram Orchestra’s ‘Autumn Breeze’ is, according to the artist, a reminder to appreciate the simple things in life. Sparsely furnished, this frosty electro cut is a reflection of the melancholy of that time and is our pick from the release.
十十零壹 is scheduled for release 10 October via JIN. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
