Based between Berlin and London, Soda Plains migrated from Hong Kong to Europe in the ‘90s. Late 2014 saw the arrival of his first release ‘Rushes’, which is comprised of two club-focused tracks for Berlin’s Black Ocean label. Combining incisive mechanized percussion with sprightly baroque melodies, the EP distilled sounds from ‘Firmiana Simplex’, an all-original mix hosted by DIS Magazine. The video for the stuttering rococo electronics of ‘Aethelflaed’ saw a debut by Serbian filmmaker Ivana Mladenovic and starred Cristina Pucean, the preeminent beauty queen and dancer within Romania’s Manele scene.
A second release ‘Kickbacks’ (Liminal Sounds) followed in 2015, a year punctuated by mixes for Astral Plane and Liminal Sounds, as well as slots on Radar Radio and BCR. The single “She Has All Kinds of Temperatures / Rodeo” was self-released in September of this year.
