VELVET STARSHIP | 丝绒飞船

[update: the first one was a banger and we're doing this again on Thursday, March 19]

What up. So, Love Bang recently got the opportunity to do a bi-weekly Thursday party at Lola Club – the same place Derrick Carter, Josh Wink, KiNK, and the like play when they come to Shanghai. Funny side story, these French dudes I know are making this documentary about underground music in Shanghai, and they asked Derrick Carter for an interview or a big up, and Derrick was like “Your shit, is not my shit”.

Anyway. We’re taking over two Thursdays and flying this starship through a detour from their usual program of house. It’s gonna be eclectic, but not as much as a Love Bang party. Lots of ’80s sleaze, breakdance tunes, music inspired by space travel, all kinds of good shit you can groove to. The place has a Funktion One soundsystem, one of the world’s best. Really looking forward to the first flight this Thursday.

Place: Lola

Address: 570 Yongjia Lu, near Yueyang Lu | 永嘉路570号4号楼, 近岳阳路

And we’ll go much deeper into the cybernetic funk galaxy, and even play some classics… Been digging a LOT for this one.

 

So, unlike a Love Bang party, you won’t hear anything like this:

Chief Keef – Citgo
