Chinese Man is a French trip-hop-influenced rap collective that emerged in the mid-2000s with its own record label and a series of EP releases.
Comprised of High Ku, Sly, and Zé Mateo, the Marseille-based group sometimes counts among its membership affiliates such as producer Leo Le Bug, Le Yan, Taiwan MC, and MC Youthstar. With a sound reminiscent of early dub-heavy Gorillaz, Morcheeba, and DJ Shadow, Chinese Man combined genres with a heavy focus on beats and samples. Formed in 2004, they made their recording debut in 2005 with The Pandi Groove EP on their own Chinese Man label. A pair of EPs followed in 2006 (The Bunni Groove EP) and 2007 (The Indi Groove EP), before the release of The Chinese Man Groove Sessions (2007), a full-length album compiling the group's recording output to date. The follow-up album, The Chinese Man Groove Sessions, Vol. 2 (2009), was released a few years later and was promoted with a tour of France (a third Chinese Man Groove Sessions installment would be issued in 2014).
In 2011, they issued Racing with the Sun and a remix album, Remix with the Sun, the next year. A pair of albums -- Sho-Bro and The Journey -- arrived in 2015. While Sho-Bro was only a short five-songs long (and a couple remixes), The Journey was a split collaboration with Tumi that featured appearances by familiar crew members like Taiwan MC, Tomapam, and Scratch Bandits Crew. Their tenth full-length Shikantaza was released in early 2017. ~ Jason Birchmeier & Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi
