This Thursday – Vinyl Night RETURNS to Logo

heijiaoshehuiWEB

黑胶社会要会来! 本周四.

God damn it’s already the third Wednesday of that month, and you know what that means – tomorrow night we go down to Logo with a bunch of records and hope the turntables work. All vinyl, all night, at Logo Bar. We do it for free and for the love, so come down if you wanna hear some music you won’t hear anywhere else in a nice dive bar. Lots of UK Garage, House, Dubstep, and Jungle, plus the odd Cameo or Kate Bush record, mixed live on two Technics turntables.

Tmmr night we’ve got special guest Drunk Monk from Sub-Culture Shanghai/SVBKVLT/Uprooted Sunshine/The Shelter. Word is he’s playing at Outlook Festival in Croatia this summer with his wife ChaCha, one of the illest MCs in China. Dude also owns one of the biggest and baddest vinyl collections in the continent. Dubplates, super rare records, and some crazy shit you’ve never heard before, guaranteed. Badman. He’ll be down at midnight.

It’s happening on Xingfu Lu, a street where thousands have danced to something different than the music on most other streets in Shanghai. I’ve never heard the Titanic soundtrack or some Bosanova playing from a CD-hawker cart on Xingfu Lu, and that’s  the soundtrack of this damn city. 喔唷你们卖CD的人,你们换歌吧!听腻了.

Word is Drunk Monk is holding several copies of Kode9′s “Xingfu Lu” EP on Hyperdub vinyl. I’m hoping to grab one. You may remember Kode9 from his lectures on military applications of sound/sound as a weapon, and other esoteric topics at Dada Bar.

Anyway that’s Thursday, July 18th at Logo Bar (298 Xingfu Lu, near Pingwu Lu, near Jiaotong University Metro Station, Line 10). 10PM – 3AM, then we eat crayfish and are careful not to cut our hands. There are 叔叔 uncles soaking their feet in kiddie pools of cool water at the crayfish spot, drinking cold Suntory beer and eating crayfish after crayfish, with a Gucci t-shirt rolled halfway up their belly.

I’ve posted this before but here’s the recording from our first night with guests Shanghai Ultra and DJ Skinny Brown AKA DJ Sal. Thanks to all the listeners! We promise to try to get a recording tomorrow night, just in case you’re not in Shanghai or you are but you gotta do some bullshit or aren’t sure what ur friends are doing yet or dun really know logo is dat a new place??? or u hva early mornin or u might hav3 other planz, but you still want to listen. Well I got the Zoom X2 portable recorder ready with a fresh SD and some White Elephant brand batteries.

Crickets are mad loud huh. Amazing. Imagine if crickets over-bred so there were like, billions of crickets in the city and everyone had to use earplugs and communicate by text????

HEI JIAO SHE HUI | All-Vinyl Night At LOGO

heijiaoshehuiWEB

Starting a new all-vinyl night in collaboration with the homies Alta, Arthur Fox, and Naaah from the UK rave tunes night Push and Pull. We’ve been playing records back-to-back in our living rooms for a while now and tmmr night we’re bringing that vibe to Logo on Xingfu Lu.

每月第三个周四,黑胶社会成员将齐聚LOGO酒吧,将他们最喜欢的唱片呈现给你。
没有CD,没有电脑,只有最原味的黑胶。

No computers, no CDs, no MP3s – strictly wax, in a dark room with friends and candles.

The name “黑胶社会” plays on the words for mafia “黑社会,” literally “black society,” and   “黑胶片,” literally “black record.” No English name for this party, strictly pinyin. We’re doing it on the third Thursday every month because that’s the night of the harvest moon. Special guests each time.

Major shout out to Cecilia Chan for her hard work on this flyer. Peep that hand-drawn  address and logo.

Here’s a rip straight from my collection.

Dee Edwards – Why Can’t There Be Love?

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.

Starts around 9PM – see you down there! Peep the event on Facebook right here.

 

 

 

 

HEATWOLVES’ CASTLE, ROUND THREE TONIGHT

HeatwolvesCastleMAY9

yo yo, a bit of shameless self-promotion here. i’m DJing down at the new Logo Bar tonight. basically just testing out new tracks and practicing. really chill space that’s like a combination of Dada and Shelter. clean concrete and couches. feels odd to describe Logo Bar as “nice,” but I can’t deny it.

music: chilll hip hop like Madlib/Quasimoto, deep dubstep, maybe some house, who knows. a bit of everything, depending on the crowd.

298 Xingfu Lu – look for the lions.

Thursday @ Logo – Heatwolves’ Castle

Our favorite dive is back, and looking a bit sharper than before. I’m headed down to Logo on Xingfu Lu for a long set this Thursday with all strains of dope music – hip hop, disco, beats, dubstep-not-brostep, house; songs for dancing, songs for love. No cover, affordable drinks, nice place. Really love the new Logo, pumped to play there.

还记得幸福路的LOGO酒吧吗? 如果记得,那你就是个上海老头! LOGO终于回归,所以热狼必须要到那边放音乐. 本周四,没门票,只要过来听各种各样好音乐就行了 – HIP HOP, HOUSE, DISCO, BEATS, DUBSTEP, 还有更多. 酒也不贵。不要宅!
