Steff (H E 4 R T B R O K E N)
Taiwanese producer/vocalist Scintii (aka Stella Chung) brings a diverse background in both studio composition and pop music to her crystalline club music, perfected whilst residing in London for several years.
Since her move to Shanghai in 2017, Scintii has become a core member of the thriving club scene in the city. Her DJ sets have featured on i-D, Diskotopia on RBMA Radio Tokyo, NTS, Rinse FM & Radar Radio. Over the last year, she’s played at Sonar Hong Kong, the Southbank Centre in London, and headlined at Corsica Studios. More recently, Scintii’s trademark vocals can be found on the critically acclaimed album Inside The Rose from These New Puritans, a collaboration that also saw her supporting and performing on stage with the band on their European tour.
Mica, her first release, pioneered an enrapturing and refreshing sound. Inspired by the form and body of minerals, Scintii’s productions pensively underpin dark, elusive, cut-up pop vocals with glowing synths and rhythms from UK grime to the dembow. Her second EP Aerial / Paperbags, released November 2018 via Shanghai powerhouse label SVBKVLT, takes her boundary-breaking sound to captivating new realms – a “goth-tinged nocturnal synth-pop” (Resident Advisor) that has both “soothing fluidity” (Dazed) and a ghostly “dark side’’ – (i-D)
Alexis S. Chan known as Soda Plains is a musician, composer and producer born in Hong Kong, raised in West Midlands, UK. He has released for Amnesia Scanner’s label Black Ocean and London-based Liminal Sounds, with the majority of his works being self-released. His 2018 mixtape Reconcile follows suit, with the solo artist’s release following Ian Isiah’s Shugga Sextape Vol. 1 which features productions by Soda Plains.
Chan has been commissioned to compose for DAZED, Kendall Jenner, Nike, Acronym, Nhu Duong, and Native Instruments among others. He has performed sets for the likes of Rick Owens, Nhu Duong AW17, Melt Festival, PAF Festival, PAN / Codes, Boiler Room, and Rinse. Collaborators include Organ Tapes, Ian Isiah, and Negroma. In 2017, Soda Plains and Negroma developed a multimedia project titled In Tongues – performed at 3HD Festival Berlin with an original score by Soda Plains.

Co-founder STEFF is based in London with family ties in Portugal, but has played all over Europe (Berlin, Barcelona, Milan…), East Asia (Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei…) and regularly records guest shows on NTS Radio.
STEFF’s sets are versatile, going from Techno to RnB, from Jungle to House Music… Her aim is to tell a story that will take you to different places and emotions.
