Oli Warwick for Juno Plus:
...We all know by now that the promoters, DJs and artists orbiting around the Golden Püdel tend to be some of the most trustworthy sources of alternative ruminations in the city of Hamburg. (...)
Even for such fringe operators in the German city, Scheich In China is a less familiar name, although Nina did hint towards enjoying performances from the beekeeper and experimental producer held at local “club not-club” Kraniche Bei Den Elbbruekken.
Having taken part in the On-Brr project alongside Rodion Levin, Philipp Meiers first presented the Scheich In China moniker on a self-titled cassette release in 2014, before committing further music to Hafenschlamm. Now V I S will be releasing some fuzzy, tape-treated delights from the Scheich on a four-track 12”. The A-side is made up of three modestly sized pieces while the B is given over to a mammoth 18 minutes of disorientating delights. The release will be out later this week, clothed in a sleeve by Julien Raboteau.
