Tomorrow night at Shelter, and Saturday night at Dada Beijing, we are very excited to present one of the most exciting talents to come out of London in the last few years, VISIONIST! Below is a bit more info on Visionist and also our second special guest for the night, PUZZLE, but first off check out this deadly mix of 100% own productions he did for Dusk & Blackdown’s Rinse show.

South London based producer Visionist came up in uk scene in 2011 after gaining support from DJ Oneman with tunes such as ‘Come In’ & ‘Mr.67’. Over the last couple of years Visionist made serious waves and has since seen release on Dusk & Blackdown’s Keysound Recordings, Desto’s Signal Life and 92 Points. His music takes influence from many genres but is deeply rooted in UK Grime, where he began, and all with a dark, fresh twist of his own.


With the track ‘Something Old, Something New’ being one of the highlights on Kode9’s recent Rinse Mix CD, and his new self released EP ‘Crying Angels’, a selection of remixes of classic Grime tracks plus the astonishing new cut ‘Your Eyes Were Green’, Visionist is quickly establishing a big name for himself and stands out among his peers. The next few months will see a 4 track EP released on Berlin’s Leisure System, as well as an EP for Rashad and Spinn’s Lit City!

But thats not all! Joining Visionist, as a special treat, we also have the return of Leisure System’s Puzzle!

With over 10 years experience of production and dj’ing, Puzzle is resident at the mighty Leisure System night at Berlin super club Berghain, and also co-runs the Leisure System record label. Having played some of the biggest clubs and festivals around, Sonar, Dimensions, Arma 17, RedBull Music Academy, Nitsa, XOYO, Shelter, Dada, Puzzle always brings a playful mix of genres to the dance floor while relentlessly throwing down bass heavy bangers. Leisure System records are just about to release an EP from Visionist, as well as the much anticipated new material from Dopplereffekt, so we are very excited to see what he has in store for us this time around!

This Saturday sees the final Sub-Culture of 2012, and the last Sub-Culture until March 2013. It’s been one hell of a year and we really appreciate all the support you have given us. We are taking some time out in January and February next year to work on a few things we have planned for 2013, but we will be coming back bigger and stronger than ever in March! Watch this space!

But before then we have one final session, and this one is a bit special. We are honored to be teaming up with Berlin based crew Leisure System! Leisure System is a resident party at Berlin’s infamous Berghain, in fact its pretty much the biggest event they have there! A few months back they broke the record attendance in Berlin’s premier club, and as well as their regular event there they have also spread their wings and have been putting on events in London, Moscow and everywhere in between! We are very excited to be working with them and hope this is only the begining of something much bigger in the future..

So, for our first collaboration, Sub-Culture crew will be joined by one of Leisure System’s head honcho’s – PUZZLE, and crew member and one of the most exciting producers of recent years – OBJEKT!



Puzzle, a member of the Berlin based Leisure System crew has been producing beats the last ten years with releases on Tigerbeat6, Generation Bass, and Project Moon Circle. He now heads up as one of the Leisure Systems resident dj’s at their legendary Club Berghain nights. One of only two events to have Berghain residency. Now also a label, last year Leisure System broke its geographical bonds and set up international events in London, den Haag, Vienna, and Moscow. The Leisure System sound is a friends collective of artist that are mainly based in berlin incl. Chris Clark, Jimmy Edgar, MachineDrum, Objekt, Lando Kal, Barker, Actress, and Kuedo. Also co-runs the bodywerk nights with guests such as: Dj Rashad & Spinn, Teeth, and Krampfhaft. Puzzle represents the more cutting edge sound of the bunch, bringing booming bass kicks & rattling hi-hats to dance hungry feet!



With his critically acclaimed series of self-titled white label vinyl presses and remixes for Radiohead and SBTRKT amongst others, Objekt has created quite a storm across the electronic dance music spectrum. Having released on Hessle Audio and regularly blowing minds with his incredible DJ sets, the hype looks set to continue unabated!


Sub-Culture X Leisure System will take place at Dada Beijing on Friday 14th December and The Shelter Shanghai on Saturday 15th December. See you there!
