    Decent mainland chinese bands/singers?

    Hi all!

    Totally off topic but as the title says I'm looking for decent mandarin chinese bands or singers.
    I'm not into c-pop and that sort of "commercial" music so it's becoming quite a task.
    I am more into electronic-esque music so synthpop, electro, newbeat and overall post disco genres do catch my eyes ears
    So far all I have found is I-GO which seems pretty nice (but they sing in english so...) and New Pants which I did not like that much.
    The reason behind it is that I am studying chinese and I am looking for ways to improve myself :)

    For the 1% thinking "Oh golly, desodorante has been quite absent on this here fine forum these days", it is because the forum can't be accessed from my sparkling new job (which I already hate :) )

    Cheers!

    If anyone pushes you around for you inactivity, let me know. Only I can do that.

    I'm surprised your workplace blocks this forum. We aren't that massive and besides maybe the P2P talk nothing illegal is done here. Oh, and regarding bands, I know none. But hey, it's off topic.
    "Come visit sometime, okay? We'll always be here for you. We... we all love you."

    no idea, regarding cpop i only heard of 'fish leong' and that one was by mistake a long time ago (looking for a band called 'brave' and got a song called 'brave' by this singer, which is as wiki says: 'a Malaysian Chinese singer in the Mandarin pop scene') - can't recommend that though as it sounds kinda cheesy

    anyways, this looks somewhat promising:

    No one is pushing me around, and you can always push me....from behind
    About the blocking thing: if I recall correctly, it says that it is a "Malicious web site", but don't worry, I've found some sites listed as porn and they are definitely not porn.

    About the bands I've found nothing so far. I spent countless hours searching for all sorts of chinese music and liked nothing so far, they are definitely not that good at it

    I will keep on looking
