Based out of Shanghai, Sonically Transmitted Disease is a homegrown music collective, alternately described as an experiment, a party, an escape from trends and bad music. And now S.T.D. is the filter through which the burgeoning Chinese music scene is examined, courtesy of the following documentary feature. Directed by Paul Hwang, and produced by our very own Dan Hwang, the film explores S.T.D.'s six-year journey to emerge as as a leading purveyor of underground music culture in China. Interviews with S.T.D. co-founder Reggie Laxatives and Li Sisi, who discuss the struggles of the early days while adapting to the evolving local musical landscape, are intercut with live concert footage that tells the story of a vibrant music scene on the verge. Check out the video below, and go here to lean more about Sonically Transmitted Disease, and as Reggie says, "Get infected."
