about

Two years ago, 87FEI87 released its first compilation, a six-track, unmixed, unmastered piece of shit meant for jamming exclusively in the confines of Beijing taxis. And jam our drivers did. Taxeee Tapes Vol. 1 was instantly legendary, the only topic of discussion in cabdriver cafeterias from Chongwenmen to Xinyuanli and beyond. This automobile audio revolution continued in 2013 with Taxeee Tapes Vol. 2, eight tracks of trunk-bumpin’ business endorsed by the pulpit of private transportation itself: FM 103.9 Beijing Traffic Radio.

Sadly, those days are behind us. The once-dominant old-skool Volkswagen Jetta has been superseded by the high-tech Hyundai Elantra, and tape decks are now a rare sight in this smoggy city. In one last defiant gesture, 87FEI87 has summoned the best electronic musicians from all over China for the third and final installation of our seminal series.

Taxeee Tapes Vol. 3: Horsepower features a whopping 20 tracks, the swankiest set of beats our Beijing streets have ever seen.* From the warzone aerobics of Howie Lee and the trumpet crunk of DzM to the analog funkfuckery of Meng Qi and the prophetic electro of Noise&Noise, there’s something to tickle all kinds of tush. We aren’t leaving any booties behind on this one.


*Limited-edition cassette available in Beijing only.
