Zaliva-D – Forsaken
Zaliva-D is the collaborative audio-visual project of Beijing-based pair Li Chao and Aisin-Gioro Yuanjin. Forsaken is their fourth album and the first to be committed to wax, with credit to Amsterdam’s Knekelhuis label. Spacious, chugging industrial tunage flecked with Chinese and South East Asian melodics, this is exactly the low-bpm techno strain that folks across the world crave from late night expeditions. Particles of processed, pre-verbal voices ring out through the gunk, brightening the experience playfully.
