CHIT CHAT : PEI



Pei 来自北京,是 ByeByeDisco 的联合创始人之一。Pei 的音乐风格包括了 Disco、House、Electro、New Wave 等,成为北京最具人气的音乐人之一。她还曾获得 2014 年度 Timeout 读者最喜欢的 DJ 大奖。值得一提的是,ByeByeDisco 原本是一家古着店,慢慢发展成为举办活动及艺术展、线上/Pop-Up 商店的多功能空间。Pei 坚信所有音乐人应该不忘根基,同时放眼未来,创作出有深度、有份量、且有灵魂的音乐。本周五,她将助阵 Yeti Dis:Ko 特别呈现的 Dicky Trisco 与 Allan Marshall 演出。让我们相聚 Dada 北京之前,今天先让我们了解下这位人气 DJ。

Based in Beijing, Pei is the co-founder of ByeByeDisco. Ranging from disco, house, electro, new wave and so on,  Pei’s curation of sounds has won Beijing’s heart as she’s Timeout Reader’s Choice of 2014 for best DJ. ByeByeDisco has evolved from being a trendsetting vintage shop to a space for events, artistic exhibitions, online/pop-up shops and much more. With a goal to showcase China’s (and global) artistic talent, Pei believes in digging deep into the past enough, to do something about the future, and that Music has a weight also a soul. She joins Dicky Trisco and Allan Marshall this Friday at DADA for a Beijing edition of Yeti Dis:ko. Read below for a quick chit-chat with the artist!
