Big Sub-Culture this Saturday!! You know the drill – 10pm till late @ The Shelter, 5 YongFu Lu! Here’s the full details of line up:
10.00 – 11.30: dji + George Wyndham + Nick Muzyczka
Quebec’s dji is one of the original members of Uprooted Sunshine/ Sub-Culture and has been djing in Shanghai for over 6 years. Known for his deep, sub heavy dub music, he always warms up the dance in the best way possible. Joining dji for this special anniversary set will be Uprooted’s newest member George Wyndham, on live harmonica, and Nick Muzyczka on Melodica. Dji and George stunned the crowd at Uprooted’s recent appearance in Manila, and with the addition of the very talented Nick on Melodica the trio have been killing it early hours at every Sub-Culture and Uprooted Sunshine night for the last few months. Get ready for some heavy dubbed out vibes.
11.30 – 12.30: DJ Maze
DJ Maze, from Copenhagen via HangZhou, is a name which is becoming more and more familiar in the Shanghai scene. A regular selector at Uprooted’s Shanghai By Bus event as well as guest spots at Love Bang and Shanghai Yard events, Maze brings some serious heat to the table with a killer vinyl collection of roots and dancehall. He’s played with Uprooted many times but this is his first set at Sub-Culture. Strictly sound-system style!
12.30 – 01.30: Steven Lorenz + ChaCha + Didje
Steven Lorenz is the newest addition to the Sub-Culture crew and over the last 2 years has honed his style and taste and has become an integral part of the Sub-Culture line up. Originally more into the straight up dance-floor style of Dubstep, recently he has got much deeper into the sound and his recent sets have been deep, dark and heavy, just how we like it! Think producers such as Pinch, Kryptic Minds, Vivek, Biome, etc and you get an idea of his sound. With his own productions with the Intransik Beats crew getting releases on multiple labels around the world, Steven’s sets always deliver.
Joining Steven will be the beautiful voice of ChaCha, and the many voices of Didje. Deadly combination!!!
01.30 – 03.00: Tes La Rok
We’ve been wanting to lock down this booking for years now, finally Sub-Culture are joined by original badman TES LA ROK!!
Tes La Rok is a DJ and music producer from Helsinki, Finland. He was one of the first international names to break through onto the dubstep scene, and has been featured on a variety of albums such as Soul Jazz’ Steppa’s Delight, Dubstep Allstars 5, Mary-Anne Hobbs’ Evangeline and Mixmag 25 Year Anniversary Mix by Laurent Garnier. He is also the owner of Noppa Recordings, a dubstep label featuring some of the most innovative artists from around the world.
His remix of Uncle Sam’s Round The World Girls on Argon Records in 2007 quickly achieved anthem status, being played in clubs everywhere and winning best 12” in the dubstepforum.com awards. With his new project, Trusta, about to launch on Loefah’s Swamp81 label, Tes’ sound continues to morph and change as the ever-evolving bass scene changes with him. One for the real heads!
03:00 – End: Drunk Monk + Ubec + guests
Rounding off the night will be Sub-Culture warrior Drunk Monk alongside the mighty Ubec and a few other lyrical guests. Heavyweight vibes till sunrise!
