Join Guohan Zheng from Running Circle for a Mampir Session in our galleries as part of Feedback Loop, our series of events relating to themes in Julian Abraham 'Togar''s exhibition.

Mampir is an Indonesian word which doesn't translate directly into English - it means come in, arrive, come over in a sense of hosting ingrained into daily life. Togar's exhibition is centred around ideas of hosting and welcoming people into a space, and these Mampir Sessions are one of the ways in which we are opening our galleries up to opportunities for hosting and gathering as a community.

Born in Ningbo, China, Guohan Zheng began shaping his sound within the underground music movement of southern China. After relocating to Nottingham, UK, he became involved with the city’s music scene where he self-released his solo LP ‘Lost Sound Book’ in 2021, and followed with EP ‘City of the Sun and Moon’ in 2022 on Darker Than Wax. Drawing from a tapestry of organic grooves and global influences, both projects have received support from radios and selectors worldwide, including Don Letts, Mr. Scruff, Osunlade, Shy One and more. As a selector/DJ, Guohan hosts a monthly show on Balamii Radio, curating sonic journeys on Radio Alhara and Baihui Radio, sharing his eclectic taste with friends across the world. He is also a regular presence at listening bars like Brilliant Corners and JAZU.

Apart from his own production, Guohan co-founded Running Circle Records in 2017 and launched its physical shop in 2022. He is also releasing projects for artists from China through Meridian Sounds, a Xiamen-based record imprint showcasing the diverse culture of South China and beyond.
