In July 2012, Sub-Culture (www.subcultureshanghai.com) brought over MC Rumi and Skyfish from Tokyo to perform with them at The Shelter in Shanghai and Code Space in Hangzhou. During their visit, Rumi spent most of the time locked in our bedroom studio with Sub-Culture’s ChaCha, and this mix is the first release from these sessions.
Produced, recorded and mixed by Rumi and ChaCha over the course of one week, the mix serves as an intro leading up to the Black Smoker Records 12″ release of a track Rumi and ChaCha recorded with Hamacide during the same sessions. In November 2012, ChaCha, Hamacide and other members of Sub-Culture will travel to Tokyo to perform at the release party of the 12″ and also hold the first Sub-Culture Tokyo event.
