It is midnight and the usually busy streets of Beijing are silent, but Dada Club, a small music venue hidden in an old narrow hutong is just about to come alive with an electronic music feast for restless night crawling hipsters.

"I don't like catchy pop music or mainstream Billboard remixes that they play in most clubs," says Wang Xinzi, a 27-year-old Dada fan says outside the crowded club. "I prefer music that excites me and I can dance to."

In China's culture hubs of Beijing and Shanghai, it is not rare to see electronic music venues such as Dada Club packed on weekday nights especially when the venue has foreign guest DJs performing.

Though pop has a dominant position in market, it seems that China's music scene is changing and becoming more diverse.

Last month, thousands of music lovers climbed the Great Wall for an electronic music festival disregarding pouring rain and danced to music by DJs from home and abroad.
