The second sub-label of Ran music, Ran Rad, is officially and finally launched with The Kickoff compilation. "Rad" is the German word for "wheel", signifying the wish to always move forward. Appreciating this, Liu Wei (FLOSO Design) made a logo with an inspiration from the iconic Neza's Wheel on Fire, who is a representative protection deity in Chinese folk religion. Initiated in Leipzig, Germany, Ran Rad is a new member of the Beijing-based label Ran Music. Currently based in Germany and China, Ran Rad aims to support Ran's mission of bridging the underground scene from China and beyond. Ran Rad seeks for interesting sounds covering a diversity of genres, when those from hardware gears are particularly embraced. Bass music, however, is totally Ran Rad's greatest interest. The first release of the label, namely The Kickoff, is a long-awaited compilation including beats of producers from all over the world. International artists on this compilation include Polish electronic music live-act An On Bast, who has just released an EP on Ran Music, Dutch producer Subp Yao and his partner Dayle, German hard-ware geek DRANQ, Swiss duo Simpig, as well as Germany-based footwork producer Terrorrythmus. On the China side, Negative 808 from the south coast of China, Beijing-based young drum and bass talent Radiax, and our old good friend Soulspeak who is using Kai Luen as the alias this time. Artwork by German graphic designer Super Quiet.
