X.L.F (Xiao Linfeng), Beijing’s pinnacle producer, DJ, and recording artist, is most recognized for his diverse range of electronic music styles. Known for his synthesizer programming and rhythmic grooves, his selective sound has continually evolved over the years. Effused from progressive trance, acid house, tech-house, and minimal techno, X.L.F ’s music has reached beyond states of classification today. As a DJ, X.L.F creates a “sense of audio history”, and is skilled in the art of harmonizing colliding genres; from warm funk to psychedelic acid, violent Techno to abstract Cologne “academism”; each one of his sets is a unique tale of intrigue. In 1997, X.L.F teamed up with China’s techno legend Yang Bing to establish “Fable 7”, a group of local electronic DJs, to help spread their music at home and abroad. Xiao hit his first career milestone in 2000 when he was discovered by UK label DVR, which led to his collaboration album with DJ Michael. Two tracks by X.L.F were released on the album, including the electronic orchestral and the special edition, with composer, singer, and pianist. Xiao Linfeng reached his next major career landmark in 2005 when he signed a contract with the Chinese Phonograph Record Corporation, joining China’s one and only commercial music trade mark label. That same year he helped produce the first electronic dance music record in China. Its commercial success broke into the European and American market, leading to a 2nd special edition release. 2007 marked a watershed moment for X.L.F as he began to embrace the German minimal techno sound. It was also the year he co-founded Acupuncture Records, China’s independent electronic music label. The original group made up of 8 DJs was cultivated during private sessions at X.L.F.’s recording studio on the outskirts of Beijing. In 2010, two EPs Cut Off/Jazz Bzzz and 9am At Juer were released under his own label.
