Since 2004, Chinese Man has been one of the most innovative bands on the French trip hop scene. Originally from Aix-en-Provence, the now Marseille-based band blends a potent mix of hip-hop, funk, dub, reggae and jazz together with a big emphasis on beats and samples. It also runs its own independent record label, the eponymous Chinese Man Records (CMR), featuring a whole host of contemporary French artists.

Chinese Man is composed of DJ Marseille Zé Mateo and High Ku and beatmaker SLY. Beatmakers Leo le Bug and Le Yan also revolve around the group and participate in the composition of several pieces. Frequent live additions to the crew include Taiwan MC and MC Youthstar. The group became known through the song “I’ve Got That Tune” which was chosen by Mercedes-Benz for its promotional campaign and by the French Film Festival in Hong Kong as its theme.

Chinese Man is known for their high energy performances and compelling visuals.
