[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.
Address: 570 Yongjia Lu, near Yueyang Lu | 永嘉路570号4号楼, 近岳阳路
The sound of VELVET STARSHIP is like..
Mary Jane Girls – Candy Man (12″ Mix)
Casco – Cybernetic Love
Midnight Star – Operator
Skream – Rollercoaster ft. Sam Frank
Prince – Clouds [btw if you haven't peeped the new Prince album you need to get on that]
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
No tech-house either
