It is with great pleasure and pride that we are welcoming Tim Sweeney of the legendary Beats In Space radio show, which celebrated it's 14th year this week. 

In his early years Tim Sweeney worked with hip hop legend Steinski and when coming aboard the DFA Records crew, he went touring with James Murphy and released several mix albums. The Beats In Space radio show began in the fall of 1999 and has not missed a week since then. The radio show is mixed live by Tim Sweeney and friends in New York City on WNYU 89.1 every Tuesday night from 10:30pm to 01:00am.

Double Happiness, Yo Banfa and 390 Shanghai have teamed up to present this NYC dance music icon at 390. Over the last 14 years, Sweeney has built Beats in Space into an iconic brand. In return, BIS launched Sweeney's career as one of New York's most sought-after DJs. 

14 years ago, Sweeney was an 18-year-old student at NYU, hosting a radio show on an obscure frequency late at night. The show was a genre-breaking format, showcasing the best dance music - whether disco, new wave, Chicago house, minimal techno, Krautrock, funk and soul, or post-punk - found anywhere in the world, anytime in history.

Armed with this vision, Sweeney began pulling in heavy-hitting guest DJs on BIS, and quickly attracted a strong international following for the diverse range of artists and styles on his playlists. The list reads like a dance music who's who: James Murphy, Carl Craig, Todd Terje, Laurent Garnier, Juan Atkins, Diplo, Plaid, Optimo, Trevor Jackson, Mike Simonetti, Maurice Fulton, Erol Alkan, Jacques Renault, Michael Mayer, Metro Area, Horse Meat Disco, Daniel Wang, DJ Harvey, Ashley Beedle, and on and on and on.... 

That's good enough for us. But if you're not convinced have a listen to this:

And here are some pictures from our last party, Horse Meat Disco in July at 390:

See? Hot Parties, Big Fun is no lie.

Thanks for reading, see you. x

Dada Shanghai 4-Year Birthday

It's Dada Bar Shanghai's 4 year anniversary.

Friday, Aug.23, 2013.

We're going to celebrate with our usual antics -- spontaneity, interactivity, mystery, surprise, and unabashed lack of advanced planning. Who's DJing? Find out when you get there! What kind of music? Oh, WTF, who knows what it's called these days. Will there be
dancing girls? Maybe, but we have no control over that. Will there be drink specials? Our drinks are always special. Will there be games to play, or sweet treats given out? Oh, totally yes!

Free entry. Doors at 8pm. Bring your friends.

SLUGABED [Ninja Tune UK] Antidote party

London bad boy SLUGABED [Ninja Tunes / Activia Benz] returns to rock China !!!

Friday, March 29 @ Dada Beijing
Saturday, March 30 @ Shelter Shanghai

+ DJs Downstate, Yauman, Shackup, Floood, Verktyget, Cavia, Drunk Monk

The Antidote brings back one of our favorites - Slugabed !!!

While so much of the world's post-dubstep / bass music productions today are making overly *serious* music, Slugabed's productions are sonically exploratory but with a sense of humor, whimsy, and straight up FUNK.

Blending influences both classic and contemporary, from the outermost reaches of dubstep, hip hop and beyond, Slugabed has received unanimous praise for his debut album 'Time Time, released on the Ninja Tune label in May 2012.

Under his Slugabed alias, 23 year-old Greg Feldwick creates music which is at once complex, deep, thoughtful and above all distinctive. It channels the energy of the best of today's bass music, through spacey bleeps and meditative melodies to explore the outermost reaches of electronic music making today.

Partly as a result of this interest he was offered a chance to remix Roots Manuva’s all-time great “Witness (1Hope)” for Ninja Tune’s twentieth anniversary boxset. The result was one of the stand-outs of that mammoth collection, and made him one of only a handful of producers to successfully remix that classic cut. In fact, Roots Manuva himself liked it so much that he personally requested the instrumental so that he could use it in his live set. Almost inevitably, the album deal with Ninja Tune followed shortly after.

Since then, things have really taken off for Feldwick. He has played at the legendary Berghain club in Berlin as part of Scuba’s SUB:STANCE night, toured the USA, Australia and Asia, and remixed both Eskmo and Stateless for his new home label, as well as supplying another remix for the mighty Roots Manuva's 'Get The Get' single.

Funny, clever, referential, sometimes moving and never anything but completely himself, Slugabed is a substantial new presence in UK bass music.

With an ongoing touring schedule throughout Europe and the world, 2 new singles planned, and work on his second LP underway, things look set to stay busy for Slugabed into 2013 and beyond.

英国顶尖先锋电子音乐厂牌Ninja-Tunes新签约的艺人Slugabed,原名Greg Feldwick,来自于英国Bath,目前居住于Brighton,年仅21岁的他被大家称为“节奏制造机”,他在当地的夜店活动“Donky Pitch”上以高超的现场乐器表演出名,即使他现在已经名噪国际,他仍然保留在这个活动驻场表演者的身份。他为诸多大牌如Starkey, Eprom和Kelpe制作了正式版本的混音曲目,他个人混音版本的美国嘻哈艺人Pharoah Monch的经典曲目“Simon Says”在全球的舞池中热播。2009年他发行的“Ultra Heat ” EP单曲专辑引起了各大厂牌的瞩目,Ninja Tunes邀请他为厂牌二十周年纪念合集制作混音,稍后他获得了Ninja Tunes的唱片合约。至此以后Slugabed的音乐事业发展越来越好,他在德国柏林的传奇夜场Berghain表演,在英国开设了Donky Pitch厂牌,在加拿大,澳大利亚,新西兰巡回演出等等。这次应上海“Antidote解毒剂”的邀请,进行亚洲多个国家的巡演。

Slugabed的音乐同时受到古典和现代音乐的影响,包括目前最流行的Dubstep电子音乐风格和Hip Hop嘻哈音乐。嘻哈方面Slugabed唤起人们对于“前Dilla时期”美国西岸嘻哈音乐的回忆,同时他又继承了英国Dubstep/Bass电子音 乐的味道。以英国著名摇滚音乐文化杂志《The Quietus》的话来说“Slugabed用自己典型英国风格的质疑态度将美国当代流行文化和英国Bass音乐最好的部分融合在一起。”

经过一年的辛苦协调工作,2013年3月30日周六在位于永福路5号的The Shelter庇护所酒吧, “Antidote解毒剂”将把这个电子音乐圈崛起的新星带到上海来
