Crack Mix 351:
Sui Zhen

Dub Balearic IDM New Wave

Sui Zhen operates at the fringes of Melbourne’s dance community. Mixing new wave, digi-dub and Day-Glo pop, she produces conceptual records like her latest, Losing Linda, on which Zhen adopts the character of an AI, surfing the uncanny valley to produce music both beautiful and unsettling.

Her Crack Mix sees Zhen lean into more angular impulses. “This is the kind of metallic territory I feel future Sui Zhen is tip-toeing around,” she says of the recording, “[though] I’ve bookmarked the mix with choral layers like [a] sage cleanse.” A softly driving set to drift away with.
