Alex Wang is an electronic producer born in Northeast China, the project sets to convey the confusion over utopian society. In 2017, his 1st EP “Black Dragon” was released under Beijing-based electronic label, Do Hits. Since then, his collaborations have included the likes of Howie Lee, YUEN HSIEH, YEHAIYAHAN, and JON WANG.
“0%” is their 2nd EP, and their first on ZOOM LENS.
A brutalist take on China’s Sinofuturist movement, “0%” pushes its artistic boundaries even further than its contemporaries by setting a violent, modern narrative influenced by the likes of Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World.”
To these means, Wang manipulates his vocals into contorted synthesized screams set amongst deconstructed dance music influenced by noise, nu-metal, black metal and sci-fi.
While not only reflecting Wang’s current home of Shanghai, but a societal shift of modernity and urbanization worldwide, the notion of “0%” is used to describe the cue point for new personal beginnings, a lack of hope, and the illusion of “0” flaws in a “utopian” world.
