Headquartered in both Shenzhen, China and Hong Kong, Unchained educates, promotes, helps incubate and distributes electronic music in the region.

Now synonymous with the exciting development and growth of contemporary Bass music in China, their reach extends well beyond just events and a music label and are fast becoming a multi-focused music platform. They are considered by some as the main force in Drum’n’Bass in China today.

Roaming in the forward-thinking universe of sound that is Bass music, their focus is on Halftime and Drum & Bass yet embrace the full variant of electronic is on the table.

Unchained club nights are typically packed events focused on the dancefloor where every new release from their label is tested and where regular international talent from various corners of the globe are showcased.


Born out of the desire to develop a bridge between a fast-growing community of bass music zealots in China and the rest of the global music community, Unchained Recordings mission was clear – stay true to the dancefloor traditions of Drum and Bass yet fully embrace the multi-genre battleground that is modern electronic music; be relevant to China and the world at large but always and only pursue the music that they love.

With a consistent run of quality monthly releases, they have earned the recognition some of the industry’s top music curators and denizens of the scene including MixMag, XLR8R, Inspector Dubplate, BBC 1xtra, Noisia Radio and many more.

Based on their release trajectory, including the likes of craftsman such as Subp Yao, Sinistarr, Kabuki and OAKK as well as high-profile remixes by Hospital Records’ stars Whiney and Royalston, it is obvious that Unchained Recordings are true to Drum and Bass but also embrace the richness of the ever-evolving face of modern electronic music.


As a natural progression forward, Unchained enjoys supporting local artists through activities such as producer mentoring, education/workshops, masterclasses and DJ coaching. This is run by Unchained’s community arm – “BiT Therapy”.

Their producer meetups gives new or established artists of all ages from as young as 14 years of age, the chance to perform their own material to other producers and their peers.

The meetups also provide an opportunity for artists to develop connections and collaborate.

With an online school and video mentoring program in planning, they see Unchained Education as an important spoke in the wheel of the burgeoning music community and for the scene as a whole.
