For our second session of 2011, Sub-Culture welcome back Macau badboy N1D, and also welcome Macau’s second-in-command – Achun, with a live Dubstep set!!


N1D is one of the key players in the Dubstep scene of Hong Kong and Macau. Starting off in 2008 and representing Heavy Hong Kong, N1D is now plays as a major role in the Heavy Dubstep night, bringing the heaviest Macau sounds onto the underground dance floors of Hong Kong. He is also one of the very few Dubstep producers in Asia. In 2010 N1D founded his own crew “Healthy” with DJ Sannja, which is the first and the only Bass Music label organizing monthly D&B / Dubstep night in Macau.


Achun is a Macanese electronic musician. His music style is deeply influenced by post-punk, shoegaze, etc, and has now developed into the 140bpm Dubstep sound. Achun is going to smash up the dancefloor by his trademarking dark, explosive digital noise over the solid 140bpm in a well layered live set. He released one of his best tunes to date tune earlier this year – Deeper. The remix of “Deeper” by Macau Dubstep Badboy N1D can be heard on Kongkretebass Episode 111 and is included in HEAVY Hong Kong 4th birthday mixtape.

Jack Sparrow (or not)

Jack Sparrow (or not)

In December, as part of the 3 year anniversary of Shelter, we booked one of our favourite artists of 2010 – Jack Sparrow. Unfortunately, due to some visa complication, Jack was unable to make the show, but luckily we still had a great turn out and, joined by Shanghai’s 1st lady of DnB Siesta, we mashed up the Shelter proper anyway. We are going to reschedule Jack Sparrow for some time early next year so keep an eye out. Check the poster, designed by Shanghai illustrator XiaoLongHua!

Sub-Culture presents: RSD (Rob Smith – Smith and Mighty)

Published December 31, 2010 by subcultureshanghai

RSD aka Rob Smith (Smith and Mighty)

To round off the Uprooted 5 Year Anniversary, we put together a whole weekend of events at The Shelter, Shanghai. The Friday was headlined by Clive Chin and Twice, with SigBinHaus Soundsystem from Philippines in support, and the Saturday Sub-Culture brought over the one and only RSD aka Rob Smith from Smith and Mighty. Both events were dope, and RSD played an amazing set of heavy, reggae influenced Dubstep. Keep your eye out for a return visit from Rob in the coming months!

Also, check out the killer poster designed by long time Sub-Culture collaberator Chris Tomoya!
