Well then. Here's an event I know you're gonna like.
As part of the FALLOUT from that boat party that sadly got canceled (Korea was not down, apparently), UK bass-music label par excellence Hyperdub are taking over The Shelter on Friday night. Label boss Kode9, who has a Ph.D in philosophy and writes about sonic warfare, in addition to producing tracks like "Xingfu Lu", is playing. You don't wanna miss that, or hometown hero Swimful at midnight. To start the night, one of the label's most interesting artists, Scratcha DVA, is premiering his new album NOTU_URONLINEU (which he recorded in total darkness) at 9pm sharp. Doors open at 8pm, and will be locked from 9-10pm.
"The album hints at themes of online alienation, confusion, control and domination. It's peppered with hints of faux-therapeutic advertising and psychotic jingles - a reflection of the stress of online life." - From Hyperdub
Following the album premiere, the schedule is as follows:
10pm: Doors reopen. Howell (SVBKVLT)
11pm: Hudafunk (UK)
12am: Swimful (SVBKVLT)
1am: Scratcha DVA (Hyperdub)
2.30am: Kode9 (Hyperdub)
4am: Kode9/Scratcha DVA/Hudafunk/Swimful/Howell b2b2b2b2b
Let's check out some of the Scratcha DVA catalog, and some of the other artists playing tonight.
And a few from the other guests of the evening...
Should be a massive night of bass, grime, footwork, and madness. Cover is 100rmb. More info in the event listing.
