Let me kick this thing off by raising a glass to each and every one of your delish selves currently gazing and gasping (good or bad – you know you subscribed, #evilgrin) at the landslide of letters, lyrics and imageries before you. The eye has to travel, now doesn’t it.

To this day, the “Made In China” label comes with its own mindset of Austen-dramatic ad nauseam-repeated prejudgments. When it comes to China at large, we may take it one step further and say that despite its “if I ruled the world” efforts and strides forward in the past decade, the nation remains an enigma to those who are not moving within its restricted confines. Most people are left outside the gates looking in, breathless at the sheer bossdom making its mark on the creative world (good or bad – you know you’re looking, #evilgrin).

“The R-Rated Revolutionary Issue”. The ultimate palpable seduction of controversial China art, urban underground players, socially R-rated and sustainably revolutionary fashion trends, the newest tidbits from the nation’s New Youth, bridge-burning brands to watch, and many mooore — #qmusic.
Eager to cut the chords with their native country’s OG rules and regulations, yet not disposing of their upbringing and heritage, those featured in this issue all have taken their creativity for a censor-sensitive spin. Outlawed by some, lapped up by Temper.
