Mooncake Weekend – What’s Really Good?


It’s the weekend of the mooncake here in China. You see, everything is related to the moon – time, women’s periods, cake, light…the list goes on.

There’s a whole economy built around mooncakes, fapiaos, mooncake tickets, and mooncake huangniu, but we’ll never understand that. Better not even try, and instead just enjoy the cakes. Sometimes life may give you a mooncake full of meat, or egg yolk, or even green tea, but that’s life. Run with it.

Did you know that just one moon cake can keep a starving child alive for one whole week? That’s proven by science.

mooncake2 We made these mooncakes today, filled with peanut butter and Snickers. Also tried to do one with Mozzarella cheese but that proved disastrous.

Besides mooncakes, What’s Good This Weekend?

Thursday – All Vinyl Night at Logo. You know the deal. This time we’re bringing back all eight DJs who’ve played at 黑胶社会 plus local hip hop grl Cookie on the warm-up. No cover, great tunes, no digital.

Friday // Saturday – JZ Festival – Probably my favorite music festival in Shanghai, held in a beautiful outdoor garden venue just in Pudong.

Friday Night – Mad Decent’s CRNKN @ Arkham. This one looks good. Not only is the headliner dope, but you’ve got Conrank, Mau Mau, yrs truly, and some other cats on the lineup too. This one should pack out Arkham.

Friday // Saturday – DAFF – If you like art and culture and dogs, ethnic food, and good looking people, get down to this festival on the water that generally draws about 5,000 people. There really are a lot of attractive, happy dogs that you’ll want to pet.

Saturday Night – Shanghai All-Stars @ The Shelter. Shanghai’s original hip hop party Come Correct with a Saturday party in the original bar on Yongfu Lu. Before you could buy a posh $10 hot dog upstairs, before the hooker gangs chased drunk laowai down the street, and before that god damn monkey was there scaring the shit out of yrs truly, there was just The Shelter on Yongfu. Anyway Saturday night sees Shanghai’s realest, purest, funkiest, dopest hip hop night, hands down. And super rare for the Shelter, it’s free before 11PM.

Tuesdays With Hip Hop – Guest Post from The Acid Pony Club

Special guest post by frenchman Laura Ingalls from The Acid Pony Club, a gang of psychedelic bandits who have a hand in more tunes than perhaps any crew in Shanghai,  through their original production of house, disco, and edits, recording for bands like PAIRS and Friend or Foe, doing sound for live music and festivals, playing in bands like Death to Ponies, running drone nights at The Shelter (check out his mix for that here), and DJing everywhere from the underground to the posh bits. Le french hustle. One afternoon last year I ran into Raph on the front steps of our old building; he recorded our conversation and warped it into a techno song.
But on top of all this disco hedonism and doom music Laura Ingalls can talk hip hop for days too. The first time I saw him DJ, way back in 2009 in a portal called Dragon Club, he dropped Ginuine’s “Pony” in the middle of a early-morning  house set. He’s playing a rare, all-vinyl hip hop set this Saturday at The Shelter as part of Come Correct Presents: Shanghai All-Stars #4 so I asked chef to put together this week’s offerings. Here’s what he said:
Slum Village and Dwele – Tainted

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

i love everything Dwele does, that must be the lover in me, he is always on point with soulful vocals and perfect Rhodes chords. If you add Slum Village to the equation it doesn’t really get much better than that.
The Roots – Proceed

i was 14 when a friend of mine brought me to see The Roots live, that night my life changed forever, i was intoxicated, since then i want more Rhodes, everywhere.

El-P always impressed me, the atmosphere is straight up industrial in his music. Def-jux was really important to me at some point, I had moved away from hip-hop when shit like eminem or 50 cent became big and it was refreshing to find a new streak of artists who were bringing something new to the rap game that wasn’t all about being gangsta and making money.
cLOUDDEAD – dead dogs two

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

When that album came out we sat down, i think it was with Clem and my then girlfriend Charlotte, and listened to the whole thing from start to finish without saying a word, proper psychedelic stuff, it’s like listening to a country western artist rapping on LSD. again Anticon was important in that whole renewal of hiphop that was more arty and weird.
Quasimoto – Greenery

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Madlib has to be in there somewhere right? it’s hard to choose a favorite, the first Yesterday’s New Quintet album is probably one of my favorite albums ever, the stuff they did with Declaime under Dudley Perkins is so dark and twisted but yet soulful, it’s perfect. but this is under his Quasimoto moniker, the last album is on heavy rotation in my headphones since it came out but this is from his previous album and it talks about getting blunted. the beat is the fattest, funkiest shit ever!
For a lot more hip hop, funk, and straight up party music, get down to The Shelter on Saturday for this week’s best hip hop party, brought to you by Come Correct. You get today’s fine selector, plus DJ Caution, Sal from the TV, Cavia, LJ, MC One Con, and surprise guests. It’s free before 11PM and 40RMB after. I’d buy that for a dollar!!

Guest Editorial – Do International DJ Bookings Help The Local Scene in Shanghai?


This is a guest piece by my friend Chris Russell about the impact of international bookings in Shanghai. Before we get into it, I should mention that Chris lived in South London for a few years, he’s a huge music fan, and he’s definitely been to more “proper nights” than myself.

[Note to the reader: In this piece when I used the word international, I’m not referring to laowai – I simply mean someone who isn’t based primarily in China. This isn’t some laowai self-loathing or anything like that.]

Sometimes you or other people just aren’t very good at something. A regrettable fact of life, you are left to either writhe around in a quagmire of mediocrity or you try and move to an environment where you can learn how to do that thing better. Or you try and create that environment where you are now.

Throughout history there are numerous cases where importing talent into a country has raised standards or improved the local culture. In China, the Tang dynasty, widely considered to be the greatest of them all, had as one of its hallmarks a receptiveness to foreign influence. If people from other countries are operating at a much higher level than you it can be prudent to try and learn something from them, but this isn’t to say that all outside influence is an unalloyed good. This is where international DJs in Shanghai come in.

Once upon a time international DJs were a rare breed in this city, and a handful of local promoters made their name bringing them over when otherwise Shanghai wouldn’t figure into their Asian tour schedules. Now on any given weekend it’s usually possible to see at least one, particularly now that Arkham has emerged on the scene and relentlessly begun booking international acts. This is ostensibly a good thing – it helps drive interest in the clubs; gives punters a bit of variety or enables them to see someone they really like; and it helps local crews expand their connections and gives them a chance to learn from people who are apparently at the top of their game. There comes a point though where we have to question just how much value these DJs bring to Shanghai and whether they in fact have a malign influence on the music scene here.

Back in December of last year I was involved in the night that saw Caspa play at Arkham, probably one of the biggest nights that month and one that received a reasonable amount of press coverage, which included Caspa doing an interview with Shanghai 24/7. As I stood watching from the balcony on the side, I saw Caspa run through the kind of wobbly dubstep he made his name with while Dynamite MC phoned in his performance. Caspa and Dynamite MC had arrived in Shanghai that afternoon, but perhaps no more than an hour after finishing their set they were being ushered into a taxi by their manager in order to head to Pudong airport, presumably en route to playing at another Asian megalopolis the following night. Before departing, Caspa and Dynamite MC gave some generic answers to an interview filmed by Redscale Studios.

What did Shanghai gain from this? The crowd looked like they were having fun and taken in isolation it would be hard to say there was anything particularly wrong about this event, but in many ways it is indicative of a lot of the international bookings that happen in this city, and, when these are taken together, their effect can be insidious.

I made the point earlier that foreign talent can raise standards and drive innovation, and that is the reason why at least ostensibly most foreigners are here in China, including myself, but with Caspa et al what are they really contributing? They are here for such a short period of time that any engagement is a best fleeting and it is debatable that anyone really learns anything from them. (Although the DJ hanging around for awhile doesn’t always make a difference either.) Do we notice any increase in quality of selection and mixing from the local cohort of DJs as a result of these international DJs passing through? Perhaps in some cases these DJs are just really fucking good and prove to be a huge inspiration to locals even in the limited time that they’re here, but largely it’s doubtful if this is the case, in part because at least some of these DJs will simply be going through the motions, Shanghai but one date on a larger tour (see above), and also because the scene here is still so small and there isn’t enough grassroots involvement to increase the likelihood of there being a substantial engagement. This isn’t like a DJ from New York going to London.

What’s more, these bookings aren’t just negligible in their impact, but are also possibly detrimental to the development of the scene and Shanghai as being a place with something approaching its own identity. This is largely because they leech away attention from what people are doing on a local level. This isn’t to say that local DJs and producers don’t ever get a look in – the live sets of Acid Pony Club and SLV have received their fair number of column inches, although it does seem that the humble DJ set doesn’t get quite so much attention – but when a reasonable amount of space is being given over to conducting interviews with the likes of Josh Wink you have to wonder if something is going wrong.

Now I understand why nightlife editors might be reluctant to turn over too much space to your average local DJ, this isn’t exactly a town of EZs, but that’s not to say everyone here is a bad DJ, and in my own experience it’s often the sets from local selectors that I find to be more memorable. Nonetheless, for better or worse these are the people that will in part define people’s experience of nightlife in this city, although I’m well aware they might not be the most important factor. As things stand though, someone browsing through the myriad listings on Shanghai’s expat websites probably doesn’t have much of a reason to choose one club night over any other, given that they’re mostly full of PR bullshit and vacuous descriptions. However, if some of these nights and crews actually got a bit more in depth coverage, perhaps these things might be a bit more meaningful to people. It might also freshen up some local-only bills, with certain line-ups, particularly those connected to boats or beaches, perhaps becoming overly familiar.

Another way to look at it is this: does Shanghai have anything approaching an anthem? I’m not even talking about something produced locally; communities can often take something from outside and make it their own. Honestly, I can’t think of anything, and one reason is quite possibly that there is a dearth of sustained coverage of what people are doing here. Nevermind though, we can always find out what Tim Sweeney is into prior to his one night here. The only website I can think of that might delve into this kind of stuff is Layabozi, but, and this is no criticism of them, club music isn’t really their field of expertise.

The thing is, these international bookings are now where most of the media attention is – an article like this one on Resident Advisor of the London club night Rhythm Section probably just wouldn’t happen – and this attention is vital for club owners and promoters across the city. You may have noticed that some venues have struggled over the summer, and one of them has closed down. So the whole process starts again, and we get the next batch of international acts going through the motions before fucking off somewhere else.

However, not all international DJs are created equal, and I don’t want to slight those that have made a tangible contribution to this city and the promoters who brought them over. For me, Kode9 is one who stands out as he has close links with the Sub-Culture crew and has played an important role in Cha Cha getting to the point where she is now. To cite another example, Void’s international links helped MHP secure a release on the Detroit record label Cratesavers International. There are no doubt others. Also, those early international bookings by the likes of Phreaktion and Antidote were vital in giving an early jolt to the scene that helped it get to where it is now.

Then there is that other type of international booking: regional DJs. They’re probably not that famous, but, given that they’re local, relatively speaking, and possibly from somewhere at a similar stage to Shanghai, they’re much more likely to be engaged with what’s going on here. At the end of July, the crew Darker Than Wax from Singapore came to collaborate with SVBKVLT. It was probably one of the best nights that the Shelter had all summer, and William-J killed it with a perfectly mixed selection that took in everything from juke to grime. That night helped cement links between Shanghai and Singapore. Also early in the year Gyto from Neo Tokyo Bass gave Shelter its first proper introduction to jackin’, something that would have otherwise taken a lot longer to happen. It’s worth noting that in their respective cities these people would be the local DJs.

Now you might just think that I say all this because I run my own nights and want as much publicity as I can get. Of course I do, but the argument would be just as valid even if I wasn’t a DJ or promoter, and this is bigger than me or what I do. There are plenty of nights and DJs here that I feel deserve more coverage, and I don’t have any stake in them. It might also be said that I’m overstating the problem and that local DJs and promoters do get coverage in the media. They obviously do, but it’s often fleeting and not all that substantial. Time Out has in the past run profiles of local DJs, but these were short and not overly insightful, while Smart Shanghai’s Undercurrents series is often more retrospective than forward-looking. Perhaps local crews aren’t actually all that interesting? Sure, some aren’t, but that only makes it more important to give attention to the ones that are. There are a lot of people trying to communicate their vision through mixes and the like, but precious few of these actually get brought to people’s attention. Maybe people simply just don’t care and are simply looking for an inoffensive soundtrack to their hedonism. No doubt those people exist, but the media here clearly fancy themselves as agenda-setting entities, so why not try and push those who are genuinely making a contribution in the scene?

Really what it comes down to is this: what do you get out of booking this DJ or covering them on your website or in your magazine? Perhaps more importantly, what does the wider music scene get out of it, aside from a show? That obviously wouldn’t be a consideration if you’re just in it to make a quick buck, but a lot of promoters would at least pay lip service to the notion that they stand for something more.

I’m not saying “don’t book international DJs,” but it doesn’t hurt to consider the implications of these kinds of bookings and the disproportionate amount of media coverage they receive, especially when Shanghai doesn’t quite have its own musical identity sorted out.

-  Chris Russell

Chris runs monthly nights somewhere on Xingfu Lu, but he’s asked for his DJ name and the names of the nights to be left out, lest this essay be seen as simply an attempt at self-promotion.




Remember how it was 106 degrees a month ago? After the hottest summer ever on record in Shanghai for the 2013, fall crashed the party like a gang of bros rocking fake New-Era hats. But instead of bringing warm cans of Qingdao, fall brings rain, cold fronts, crumbling, toe-destroying pavement, deadly ammonia leaks, and a lot of good as well.

The question is not “How is the weather in Shanghai?” but “What’s worse, Shanghai summer or Shanghai winter?” This place is known for a short spring and fall sandwiched between long, tortuous winters and summers. Enjoy these fall weeks.

And shout out to subway Line 11, shout out to public transportation. Now it’s really simple to transfer within and from the South Side, AKA the best side, to Line 2 at Jiangsu Lu. For example, if you live at Jiaotong University and wanna get to Jing An, you can take line 11 one station to Jiangsu Lu, transfer, and roll one more station to Jing An. Or you can take bus 76 just opposite CityShop on Panyu.

As usual there’s a lot of shit on this weekend and some serious gems, so let’s take a look at what the 周末 has to offer.

FRIDAY – 1950s/60s Music/Rockabilly/Old Records Played By Someone Who Knows The Deal @ The Shelter

Keb Barge is apparently that dude. A pioneer who’s been DJing since the 1970s, he strictly drops good old tunes on vinyl 45s. He doesn’t like house or hip hop and won’t be playing any of that, but you’ll hear a bunch of classic tunes you’ve never heard before. Surely you’ll hear some hip hop though, with this dope, all-Shanghainese support lineup featuring The Grumpy Pig AKA V-Nutz playing a rare set, Ben Huang, plus the homies Ceezy and HBD. You can read a lot more about the show over at Smart Shanghai. Only 50RMB – highly recommended. On the get-ready tip, here’s one of my favorite Northern Soul tunes.

The Trips – Love Can’t Be Modernized

FRIDAY – Standup Comedy with Joe Klocek

This one’s put on by the Kung Fu Comedy Club. Only been to one of their shows, Butch Bradley last fall, and that was great. Peep this YouTube video of tonight’s guest pwning a heckler. It’s 200RMB at the door. Damn, comedians can charge a lot at the door. I wonder if in five years there’ll be loads of wack comedians here bringing down the market price?

And the new DJ booth should be up and running at Dada tonight – what do you think? Get down there Saturday night for Popasuda if you’re into dancehall and music without English lyrics.



Saturday night, boat party on the Yuangpu. I DJed at a boat party for NYU last Friday and that was mad fun; like 400 kids dancing on the top deck. Dry boat but everyone was wilding out regardless. Saturday night’s affair has a full bar on deck(s) plus music by Yen, Caution, CJ, and myself. Music on each floor, lots of booze, and the beautiful Huangpu River with dual skylines chillin in the background. There’s a few tickets left over at Dragon’s website, hop on that. RMB200 with free drinks and RMB500 for free-flow alcohol including champagne. It’s a three-hour voyage, with an afterparty at Shanghai Rose, a century-old, historically-preserved Victorian spot that housed the Shanghai Rowing Club back in 1905. Chill architecture. That party is RMB50 with a drink or free if you’re on the pleasure boat. That’s got The Super Ayi Cleaning Team playing erotic dance music and Xujiahui Trap all night. Strictly for the North Bund ratchets.

The North Bund is a funny place. Lot of ratchets, for real. Last time this lady tried to get me to come in her bar and was like “don’t worry i’m not gonna kidnap you and sell you or anything” and her pink-faced and obese lao laowai husband was like “yerrrrrrr come on in.” There were babies crawling around, all quite surreal.


Usually it’s a flower ayi trying to sell you a rose, but for this flyer we flipped the already-bizarre reality into a flower selling aunties. Art by the always on-point whoiscecilia and myself.


Repping DFA Records and the hugely influential Beats In Space radio show, currently on episode #693, it’s New York’s Tim Sweeny. Support from Mau Mau, American Booze DJs, Santo Chino, and Lindberg. Looks to be the spot for house and disco on Saturday. Peep this Boiler Room mix by dude, just came out three days ago. Only RMB60 with one drink.

Saturday during the day there’s a flea-market at Cotton’s on Xinhua Lu that promises pop up shops, BBQ, music, etc.. Dope venue so worth stopping by if you stay in the South Side/Changning hood.

Alright there’s more but I’m done. Hit the streets, see you out there. Get that 2GT and holler at dem North Bund Ratchets. Will end this one with some brand new tunes from local producers.

Here’s a house tune by DJ Doggy, repping Anhui. This one out on the DOT Records sampler that just dropped.


And this serious disco burner by two of my favorite French people, Laura Ingalls and El’se. No DL on this but I’m sure if you ask them nicely they’ll hook you up. It’s out on Disques Pony.

El’se + Laura Ingalls – Crydgejohn

哦!还有一件事请想告诉你们…Tonight on Shanghai’s English-language TV channel, catch the world premiere of a really *special* cooking show starring yrs truly, DJ Caution, and our good friend Sal, who’s written for this site before. Sal also happens to have his monthly Latin/World Tunes party at Dada Saturday night as well, with guest super-friend DJ Cavia also reppin’ the An Hui. Anyway the TV show premieres tonight on ICS at 8:30PM Shanghai time. That’s 8:30AM Kalamazoo time, a perfect way to start your Friday in the office. Something like an adult sesame street in the Shanghai hood. Steam it live over at ICS. Here’s a shot from when we were cutting records in the kitchen while cutting up some vegetables.


If you have an event in Shanghai, please send the info/flyer over to and we’ll see about it getting in this column.

Chillin With Doctor Jing, Part Two


[This is the saga of Dr. Jing, a guy who works in the convenience store below my apartment. A real motherfuckin’ G. Some nights we drink some Suntory Beer mixed with Chinese rice wine and discuss where to eat lamb, real estate in Shandong, Chinese drinking culture that will allegedly take over three weeks of non-stop discussion to explain, and the ills of modern life. Dr. Jing is not on LinkedIn so don't even ask.]

Part two of the Dr. Jing story starts like they all do, in the convenience store by my house drinking local beer and listening to classical music on laptop speakers. It’s mostly high frequencies anyway right? Dr. Jing knows as much about classical as I do about hip hop, possibly more. I wonder how he would feel about James Blake.

So this 24 year-old kid from Yangzhou comes in looking sad and starts crushing beers and MSG-laced snacks, says he just broke up with his girl a few hours ago on the stairs out front. Says before he met her he saved 100,000rmb from working construction and now it’s all gone.

Dr. Jing asks where this ex-girlfriend works, and kid says the hospital. Dr. Jing says don’t ever date girls who work in hospitals or schools, because these are “comparison centers” – places where women stand around comparing what they have, i.e. jewelry, cars, clothing, etc. to other women.

The doctor and I agreed that breaking up with hospital girl was a 小事情 (small matter), but spending 100,000RMB in six months??!! This was a serious problem. “There’s lots more fish in the sea,” we insisted, but leave it to [outdated] traditional Chinese values to crush the spirits of the young and unmarried, even in the face of impending modernism.

Yangzhou kid is like “What am i gonna do? I’m gonna go back to Yangzhou and my parents and neighbors are gonna be all ‘why haven’t you married yet!?’” and I says “relax, you’re 24,” and that he should meet lots of girls until he finds out what kind of girl he really likes, or just focus on himself, hobbies, and work, until eventually he just runs into the right girl or she finds him. Maybe try some white girls or black girls until wifey rolls around. Dr. Jing agreed and opened another Suntory. The good doctor was quite the ladies man back in the day. He said back in the Mao days, there was a slogan that Google Translate rendered “Any dating that does not lead to marriage is bullying.” Like many, Dr. Jing has mixed feelings about Mao.

To ease the broken-hearted, Dr. Jing started to sing. He sounded like an opera singer, belting “我的太阳!!!” (“my sunshine!!”). I could hear him from the tiny bathroom. That’s the first time I ever used the restroom in a Chinese convenience store.

The Suntory kept flowing, steamed buns, mushroom skewers, and chips came out with minimal presentation and maximum MSG, and the kid from Yangzhou felt a little better after hanging out with the good doctor and yrs truly. Unfortunately we learned that two weeks later he was back with the girl from the hospital, but perhaps there’s still hope.


Get ready for part three, where the good doctor and I enjoy Shanghai’s finest lamb up in Baoshan district, blinded by sunshine and Baijiu.


Sunday on Soundcloud: Ronghua Mix by Alta


Were you at Dada for Electric East on Friday night? Every time I wanted to leave  for much needed sleep, someone handed me a drink or Q-Kraft dropped a stay-a-while tune. My good friend Chris aka DJ Alta was on at peak-time playing grime. I don’t know anyone else in Shanghai who plays grime, that stripped-back, aggressive, neon computer chip sound from the UK that gained mainstream popularity with Dizzie Rascal and the like in the early 2000s. The sounds of slamming mid-range basslines video game samples. It’s admittedly both jarring and loveable. Basically what came after gar-age and before dubstep.

Alta from Push and Pull cooked up the “融化 Mix,” a nice intro to some newer grime tunes and the sound he’s trying to push. Really nice one. He also does the all-vinyl night at Logo every month on the third Thursday, along  Nate, Arthur Fox aka Pip, myself, and rotating guests.
