So much party and god damn heat. House music legend Kenny Dope from Masters at Work playing at Unico, allegedly a burgeoning desperate housewives scene that club, “astronaut afghan” rock band Rainbow Danger Club saying goodbye at Yuyintang on Saturday, stacks of drum machines and acid at Shelter with Ceephax Acid Crew, a beach party in a gigantic sandbox near that lovely river, bass music from Hong Kong at Dada on Friday, and BBQ in the summer rain at some point. Lots of wet dogs walking about.

Shanghai totally shifted shape since I arrived in 2007. Now we have not just international music, but comedians, chefs, ice cream, chicken…

Really though, this weekend you just wanna come to our night – Love Bang x Hip Hop Hijack on Saturday at 390. Classic Love Bang party in a new spot with a really solid dancefloor and a more grown and sexy feel. Draft beer, Asahi bottles, and mixed drinks still affordable though (RMB35 – 45). More neon, lots of different rooms, low seats, two bars, and a second level looking down on the floor. There’s even a Pac-man arcade box  my friend bought for 1,000RMB and dragged to Fanyu Lu from a  market in Baoshan aka the hood.


And the best music as always. Hip Hop, R&B, Dancehall, Rap, House, Dubstep, and anything good. If you haven’t been to Love Bang for a while or just consistently avoid it, come on Saturday. We’re releasing a cassette, giving away a boombox, and just generally turning things up a notch. This some graduation, red cup on the lawn shit as Yeezus would say. May even drop some loot on more bass, let’s see.

If I didn’t have a party on Saturday I’d go to Ceephax Acid Crew at Shelter. Dead Elvis at 390 Friday night sounds aight too. See you out there.

Here’s a brand new mix to get you through Friday. Tracklist coming on Sunday. Recorded live in one take on the porch in disorientating humidity on Technics and Serato.
