'Pretty Green' - exciting, edgy band, with infectious energy, that embodies the attitude of the Pretty Green brand
'Louder Than War' - Comparisons with the Mondays are easy to make and understandable but to have China White down as yet another band following the Madchester blue print would do them a serious injustice. They have the swagger and the talk and are very Northern but these boys have thrown talent, soul, funk acid house and high production values into the melting pot and this gives them the edge. They deserve to be the next big thing.
'Viva Magazine' - China White have established themselves as firmly popular and solidly Northern. A talent that sees the venues they play packed to the rafters. Their little black book is one that the industry must envy fiercely. What with collaborations with Keith Allen, Alabama 3 and Rowetta under their belt. Not to mention infrequent comparisons to The Happy Mondays. China White have a massively original sound that still manages to employ catchy hooks. They are set to become Manchester's biggest band this year!!!
'Mudkiss Fanzie' - China White, a vivacious blend of funk, hip-hop and acid house with an undercurrent of indie vibe. Their ballsy and creative blend has seen them collaborate with many well known artists in the past few years, such as Rowetta and Kermit, also leading them to work with producing legend Danny Saber and tour with the enigmatic Keith Allen in 2012. Compounding them as serious players. China White are beginning to cause quite a stir on both sides of the Atlantic!!!
'The Laboratory Project' - Creators of D Funk, China White are one of the regions top underground bands and rapidly heading towards cult status. The list of producers and collaborators these guys have been working with is starting to look like a who's who of music. The band are notorious for a number of reasons including their studio prowess and wild parties but perhaps most of all for delivering mind blowing live sets, typically featuring impromptu appearances from a variety of well known special guests.
'IN THE CITY 'REVIEW PAUL TRAVIS - A1M Records / FMS PROMOTIONS....
"In an ITC weekend dominated by skinny jeans and fender telecasters the Electro soul/funk/rap beat of China white were a shinning beacon of hope for indie dance music. With a front man cooler than the South Pole and with a cocksure pose of Gallagher esque proportions he steals the night.
Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, Black Grape, Charlatans producer) - China White...the most exciting, edgy band I've worked with since Black Grape. Destined to be huge!!!
The Very Reverend Dr.D.Wayne Love (Alabama 3) - These lads are the best out there, pure uncut raw talent. I can promise you that they will astonish us all!!!
Rowetta (Happy Mondays) - Liams lyrics are great because they're from the heart. They're also great lads to work with. They could and should be massive!!!
Paul Ripley - Manchester Radio Online "The Ripman Show" - I sift through new music everyday then I came across China White...... And then remembered why i do it.......''edgy, uplifting and honest''
Kermit (Black Grape, The Ruthless Rap Assassins, Broken Glass) "swagger" huh I remember when that was called personality and thats what china white have... personality. These are proper lads making proper music they've done their thing in the heart of the tuff lads of the north and had em bugging out .. i really dig china white..... its groovy KERMIT..X
Greg Wilson - They've got their own thing going on. A completely unique sound that separates them from the pack...that's what I like about them.
Scorpio (Grandmaster Flash & The Furious five) - China White's sound is that edgy to the point of scaring people!!!
Inder Goldfinger (Ian Brown percussionist) - China White, the eight legged groove machine. They know it, i know it and the rest of the world seems to be waking up to the D.Funk revolution. They're putting multicolour back into these dark times...exciting!!!
