Originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan, I live in Shanghai, PRC, where I work, DJ, study Chinese, and write for this site and sometimes others like SmartShanghai.
I maintain heatwolves.com to share music, info about events and parties in Shanghai and around China, tales of adventure abroad, and writings on culture, food, and language.
[a bit about the music and my crews...]
I’ve been DJing in Shanghai and around China for three years. In April, 2010 I started the monthly hip-hop/dubstep/ghetto house party LOVE BANG at Dada Bar. We (DJ Caution, MC One Consciousness, myself, and guests) bring something Shanghai needs – hip hop and party music. I say this because Shanghai’s bar/club scene is dominated by [wack] house/electro and [awful] mashup, with exceptions for sure. You can see all the posters I drew for Love Bang and other parties at Some Art.
Long before this I was half of the now-defunct DJ duo Baijiu Robot (白酒机器人).
On the production tip, I make tracks with DJ Caution as “The Super Ayi Cleaning Team.” We remix Chinese pop songs and make mixtapes. Have a listen over at my Soundcloud.
Aside from these crews, I’m known to rock with Sub-Culture, Split Works, OTAKREW, various local rock bands, and the homie Sal. I’ve shared the lineup with artists like Addison Groove, Kode9, Bicep, Slugabed, and more.
For booking information/press kit/other info please email me – firstname.lastname@example.org – and feel free to send tracks or removal requests as well.
Enjoy the site, and please leave some thoughts/questions/suggestions in the comments. English, Chinese, or any other language is good. Holler.
