Any cool Chinese/Taiwanese bangers from the 2000s or 2010s that I can bop to?

I’ve been listening to “Mei Fei Se Wu” by Sammi Cheng and 踏浪 by Yuki Hsu on repeat because I couldn’t really find any other cool Chinese/Taiwanese bangers. Most of them are ballads. No hate against ballads, they’re just not what I’m looking for. I want something from 10-20 years ago with a catchy beat.
And I’m not looking for the latest hits because I’m not a fan of the way music sounds today. Music was much better 10-20 years ago, IMHO.
Does anyone have any dancey, cool Chinese/Taiwanese hits from then or ones with a eurobeat sound to it?

Maybe not at all what you’re looking for, but a couple of artists I like are Soler (Hong Kong duo active during early 2000s) and Chinese singer Isabelle Huang (黄龄). Although they both have a good amount of ballads they also have some faster/more upbeat songs. Not so sure about eurobeat. Soler sing in a number of languages, and I actually like their Cantonese stuff better, but they have Mandarin as well.

Let’s see. Sammi had many cool dance hits.

Andy is a personal favorite

And there are always cool Taiwan unusual songs…or the hits by the top: Mayday, WuBai, Amei.

I noticed some of those songs were a bit “rockish” and I’m all for some Mando/Canto rock but I prefer a specific sound & style to it. A bit heavier but not too heavy. Think bands like Evanescence, Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin but Chinese

I agree with Icon, Amei and Mayday are a very good place to start.
There is also ShinYueTuan (信樂團)

YangNaiWen (楊乃文) Her second album is the best in my opinion.

NanRenGe (男人各)

To be more specific, I meant one I can get up and dance to.
(Though Xue Hua Piao Piao was probably an exception cuz I heard pf it from a meme and now it’s on my Spotify playlist. :slight_smile: )
I’m, like, suuuuppper picky and specific

I thought you might like her songs. She was quite popular in the early 2000’s.
