Such self-deprecation is typical of ChaCha (or Ye Hai Ya Han Xin Ge, to give her her full Man minority name). Though she likes to focus on her own Bjork-meets-Massive Attack trip hop productions, it’s her astonishing vocal skills which have brought her offers of work from the likes of top producers Clive Chin and Adrian Sherwood. She’s equally comfortable singing Sunday morning vocals a la Portishead or tough-girl MC’ing over bouncy reggae and dubstep, and even drum ’n’ bass. Head to her Douban page to hear her Chinese version of reggae classic ‘No No No (You Don’t Love Me)’ or the stunning ‘Rock City’, where her breathy, lilting lyrics soar over sharply echoing MC’ing.
Raddam Ras aKa McWebber
Raddam Ras aka MC Webber, is one of China’s most versatile MC/ vocalists. From founding pioneering Chinese hip hop crew Yin T’sang in 2000, to fronting energetic improv band Beijing Live Experience in 2007, performing live with Talib Kwali, to becoming possibly the first Chinese Drum & Bass MC, Webber’s talent with the microphone has inspired countless other Chinese MCs. Born in the 70s, MC Webber has been DJing for more than a decade, and emceeing for more than two. Webber won the Chinese Iron Mic MC championship so many consecutive times he was asked not to enter again. MC Webber had thousands of live performances, co-hosted with friends and partners for ten years the purist underground Hip Hop event Section 6, in-depth exchanges with international Hip Hop and Reggae masters… MC Webber is known as THE Chinese MC who is most artistically pioneering, recognised as the most loyal practitioner and leader of local Hip Hop culture.
