After a heavy weekend (great nights both Friday and Saturday at Shelter!!) I was just checking out a few other blogs and headed over to the King Midas Sound site to see what was going on there. As well as the nice surprise of seeing the latest post, a few weeks back Hitomi posted a link up for a Canadian artist called The Weeknd. Some of you may already be on this (his latest mixtape was downloaded over 180,000 times on the first day) but its a new one to me. The Weeknd is Abel Tesfaye, an Ethiopian-Canadian R&B singer based in Toronto, and he makes some really nice dubbed out pop/r&b. His latest release, entitled ‘Thursday’ is out now for free download here. Get it downloaded, sit back with a moon cake and get it listened to!
The 4th Day is a collaboration between The Shelter’s Thursday night promotion groups Rom, Click, Bass-ment and Beat Conductorz. After the ‘pilot’ night a few months back, The 4th Day is now ready for a full launch, and tonight sees the ROM crew take over the Shelter. As members of each of the crews are producers and musicians aswell as DJs, each week The 4th Day will be giving away a track or DJ mix at http://www.4thday-shanghai.com. This week see’s ROM’s icenine giveaway a new track called ‘The World Of Tomorow’. Check the website for more info and the download link. See you at Shelter tonight!
