Busy weekend this week in Shanghai, lots of big, over priced parties going on. Here is a little guide of what we think you should do:
Step 1: This afternoon, get your head round this mix right here. Maybe give this a read, or this, or this, or this, or maybe this.
Step 2: Tonight, take it easy, Saturday is going to be a big one so save your energy. Get something good to eat and then head over to Arcade where Sub-Culture’s Drunk Monk will be dropping some musical niceness from 12 – 4am. Arcade do some fantastic drinks, and Drunk Monk gets paid with a bottle of rum, and he really shouldnt be drinking it all to himself, some come down and give him a hand with it!
Step 3: Sleep all day Saturday…
Step 4: Head to The Shelter Saturday night for Sub-Culture presents: Doc Daneeka! Serious dance-floor vibes all night long! Get down early to catch dji’s deep dub set with George Wyndham on harmonica, and if you’ve got a bit of extra cash buy one of these from the Idle Beats shop at the back of the dancefloor. It’s probably the most popular poster we have done so far so i dont think these will stick around for long. We were also saving some of these for a Sub-Culture poster exhibition, but we haven’t found the right venue just yet so the last remaining shirts will be on sale too!
Step 5: Recover…
As we start to get hyped for this Saturday’s Sub-Culture with Doc Daneeka @ The Shelter, it’s probably about time we unleash this short teaser mix that the Doc has put together for us to give a little taster of what to expect! Straight, upfront, future vibes!
Kicking of the year of the Dragon with something a little special, here’s Chairman Ca’s Sub-Culture poster for our event with Doc Daneeka on Saturday 18th February! We originally suggested zombies but instead we got multi-breasted female space demons and killer centipedes. Its all good though, we love centipedes…
Saturday 18th February
Sub-Culture presents: Doc Daneeka (Ten Thousand Yen/50 Weapons/Ramp – UK)
Line Up: Doc Daneeka, Deville, Siesta, Drunk Monk, dji, ChaCha, Didje
For the second Sub-Culture of 2012 we are excited to be joined by Welsh badman – Doc Daneeka!
It’s not common for an artist based in Wales to become the toast of underground music, but Doc Daneeka is just that. With releases on Ramp, Fabric, 50 Weapons, PTN, & Well Rounded in the bag, Doc Daneeka has started his own boutique label, Ten Thousand Yen, releasing other fresh artists like XXXY and Julio Bashmore as well as his own unique material. Bookings all around the world and being accepted into Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid 2011 (along with Sub-Culture’s own ChaCha) has solidified Daneeka’s reputation for his tight productions, and his energetic DJ sets are some of the most sought after performances by clubs all around the world.
Delivering scorching mixes for the likes of Fact Mag & Xlr8r, trademark rattling drums and punchy low end characterise this producers unclassifiable DJ sets, as well as countless unreleased dubs.
Doc Daneeka makes some of the best house music around right now – with peers in Hackman, Roska and Julio Bashmore, he favours syncopated beats and polyrhythms over linear drive, and has remixed Delphic, Digital Mystikz and more in the past to great effect. His releases for PTN have shown eight slabs of colourful house almost impossible to avoid getting physical to. His much talked about debut album with Benjamin Damage, entitled ‘THEY!LIVE”, is just about to drop on Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons imprint and is receiving praise from all corners of the music world. Doc Daneeka is delivering the goods, while wearing the weight of internet expectation. UK Dance music’s health and sound has never been so rude!
