Box of rain coming your way...

Here's five songs by producers or DJs playing the city over the weekend that we thought you'd like to hear. Tunes are on Soundcloud, so you'll need a VPN.


1. "America, The Beautiful" by Homeboy Sandman, who plays Le Baron on Thursday

NYC hip hop over hard beats via LA's mighty Stones Throw label. Heard good things about dude's live show.

2. "4526-TESS" by Good Tooth Bad Head, who take over Mansion on Friday

Young producer from Hangzhou making dark, heavy club music. Her whole crew is taking over krazy kids inflatable fun castle The Mansion all night.

3. "Promotion Track For 20160805 Arkham Shanghai" by PRAJNA SONIC , who play Arkham on Friday

Far-out, left field techno from a Beijing label doing a live showcase.

4. "China Cat Sunflower (Live in Paris 1972 Version)" by The Grateful Dead, who… are not playing Shanghai, but it's Jerry's birthday Saturday at The Beaver

Got a wife in Chino, and one in Cherokee. First one says she got my child, but it don't look like me...

What's the point in callin' shots, this cue ain't straight in line...

Great day for some Dead. You gotta get on the YouTube for the full version.

5. Fader Mix by DJ Marfox, who plays Shelter on Saturday

High-tempo global sounds from Lisbon's underground taking over The Shelter, with support from Skinny Brown. There are cats on the flyer.

Bonus Round

Just a great summer banger featuring two Beijing rappers, Young Peach and Bloodz Boi. Look out for them at Concrete & Grass.
