Indietronica artist Xianda Wang aka Easy Mind, based out of Beijing, has been a constant presence in some of the smaller music circles here in Beijing since he began performing in 2011. Downtempo music ‘from a light heart’ – the artist who’s currently at NYU as a grad student in New York recently released his latest album Cloudland this month. Tranquil, retrofitted, sugar-coated ambience and as relaxed as a feathered pillow, Easy Mind’s music may lack the edge of most contemporary underground electronica, but that’s the point. Like the artist himself, this is some pretty damn easy going stuff and the perfect sunny afternoon appetizer.
