Su is one of the co-founders of atmen. Born into a family of Sichuan opera artists, Su grew up surrounded by music and art. First exposed to electronic music in high school, she has had a crush on its infinite space and sound ever since. Having absorbed the energy of German club parties and European electronic festivals for years, Su felt compelled to bring high-quality electronic music to people back home, thus beginning her journey into promotion, DJing and music production.
Xiang is one of the co-founders of atmen. Classically trained as a child, two years of university in Germany amidst the backdrop of the mid-2000s techno scene inspired her to become a DJ. Xiang captivates audiences with her intuition for sound and flow – her live set integrates electronic textures from synthesisers and recordings sampled from nature and daily life.
Xiang also collaborates with artist Little New in their audio-visual project XX², amalgamating elements of the natural world and everyday life into a real-time sensory experience. ❀
