/body> Saturday 6th December – Void present: DJ Bone (Subject Detroit)
@ The Shelter. 5 Yong Fu Lu, near Fu Xing Xi Lu Line Up:
DJ Bone, Nat Alexander, Shanghai Ultra Entrance:
Void are very happy to welcome Detroit's DJ Bone to Shanghai to help celebrate one year of parties at The Shelter.
One of the Motor City's best techno DJs (and DJs from that city are some of the world's best), DJ Bone will show just why he is booked all over the world with his 3 turntable assault.
Bone experienced the emotion, passion and energy of Detroit Techno first hand at the infamous Music Institute. What he witnessed there, along with the eclectic mix of music filling Detroit's airwaves by the legendary Electrifyin' Mojo and The Wizard, along with Detroit's industrial backdrop, would serve to be Bone's main influences.
After hearing Bone in Detroit (1996 Love Club Anniversary Party) Laurent Garnier booked him to headline at the Rex Club in Paris. Soon after word spread and Bone was invited to play events all over Europe.
Observing the trend of producers being booked to spin as opposed to actual DJ's fueled Bone to go against the grain and establish himself as a DJ primarily. He believes that an individual's talent should speak for it and not be overshadowed or misconstrued by hype.
DJ Bone also operates and releases on his own label, Subject Detroit - http://www.subjectdetroit.com/
Support from Void residents, Shanghai_Ultra and Nat Alexander
Entry 60RMB (and worth every fen!)
Thursday 11th December – Karma-Koma 1st Birthday featuring: KBN (live)
@ The Shelter. 5 Yong Fu Lu, Near Fu Xing Xi Lu Line Up:
KBN (live), LON (live), R3 (live), Drunk Monk – Hosted by ChaCha Tickets:
Karma-Koma was born in December 2007. Organised and hosted by Uprooted Sunshine’s ChaCha and Drunk Monk, over the past year Karma-Koma has provided a monthly journey into the sounds of trip-hop, downbeat and abstract hiphop and has welcomed guests such as Shanghai’s own Zhong Chi and collaberated with Free The Wax to bring Australia’s Hermitude.
To celebrate one year of Karma-Koma, we are very proud to welcome special guests KBN from Taiwan.
KBN formed almost 10 years ago in Taipei and have been exploring experimental electronic music and performing in Taiwan ever since. While the band’s first album/documentary—“Before 2005”—may perhaps most easily be described as downbeat or trip-hop, they’re more recent work builds upon that platform and extends further into the realm of experimental electronica.
Aswell as performing at music festivals such as Formoz (Taiwan), Spring Scream (Taiwan), Ho Hai Yan Rock Festival and the Midi Festival in Beijing, KBN also recently joined the SXSW tour in the US where there were the only Taiwanese act. They have also collaborated with Taiwanese filmmakers and there music has appeared in Times (directed by Hou Hsiao-Hsien), Reflection (directed by Yao Hung-Yi) and The Bean (directed by Wang Mei-Jung & Luo Chiao-Mei).
Performing a full live set, including brand new material, this will be KbN’s debut in Shanghai.
To support KbN and to celebrate Karma-Komas 1st birthday, Karma-Koma residents LON and R3 will both be preparing special live sets and the host of the evening, ChaCha, will be performing some of her latest tracks that she has produced for her forthcoming album.
Karma-Koma 团队诞生于2007年12月初，由Uprooted Sunshine 的DJ Drunk Monk 和 ChaCha联手创办。在过去的一年中Karma-Koma坚持每月举办一次活动，音乐类型以 trip-hop，downbeat和abstract hip-hop为主，活动邀请过本土音乐人钟茌及其乐队更在今年10月与Free The Wax 联手请来了澳大利亚的音乐组合Hermitude。
KBN（凯比鸟乐队）在台湾成立至今已经差不多10年了，深谙试验电子的他们经常出现在台湾各种演出活动中。从他们的首张专辑/纪录片“Before 2005”中就已经很容易发现他们的音乐有明显 的downbeat 或trip-hop痕迹，而且近年来一直致力于将试验电子音乐的平台向更开阔的方向和更深的程度延展。
他们参加过各种大型的音乐节，比如台湾“Formoz”音乐节，台湾“春之呐喊”音乐节，“Ho Hai Yan”摇滚音乐节以及北京“MIDI”音乐节等。他们还在今年以唯一的台湾音乐人资格参加了美国2008德克萨斯SXSW音乐巡演。他们除了出过一张录音室专辑外更是与台湾的电影人联手为其创作电影音乐，届时大家也将欣赏到-《最好的时光》侯孝贤导演，《爱丽丝的镜子》姚宏易导演，《美人胚子》王梅蓉和骆巧梅导演。

DJ Babu, V-Nutz, Fortune, The Lab Crew Entrance:
As part of the Shelter one year anniversary, Quality Control are very proud to present the legendary DJ Babu from The World Famous Beat Junkies and Dilated Peoples.
Scientific experts might state that it's impossible to touch sound. DJ Babu would send them back to school, with their heads bobbing. A member of the acclaimed Dilated Peoples and the Beat Junkies, this world renowned DJ is more than accustomed to feeling the expansive power of music at his fingertips. Winning countless DJ competitions in the 1990s such as the DMC Championship in 1997 and multiple ITF titles, Babu has gained the nickname "The Turntablist." It couldn't be more appropriate.
Saturday 13th December – Sub-Culture and Free The Wax present: Harmonic 313 (Warp)
@ The Shelter. % Yong Fu Lu, Near Fu Xing Xi Lu Line Up:
Harmonic 313, Drunk Monk, Deville, MC Didje, MC ChaCha Entrance:
As one half of Global Communications and Jedi Nights, Mark Pritchard has released some of the most important records of the past decade (most notably 1994's 76:14, still hailed as a masterpiece with innumerous reissues since).
After many releases on futuristic-music championing record label WARP, Pritchard found freedom to experiment with no-holds-barred groundbreaking music, embarking on an excursion into a seductive dubstep vibe combined with outer space sounds: HARMONIC 313.
In China for the very first time, expect this one-of-a-kind musician to take the Shelter by storm in a Live 2-hour set of deeply emotional and twisted sounds that will blow the galactic frequencies off everyone's grooving axis.
Just don't ask him to play any songs. He hates that.
作为著名音乐组合Global Communications和Jedi Knights一员，Mark Pritchard 已经发表了过去黄金十年里最重要的几张专辑(尤其是1994年推出的76:14，至今仍视为杰作，一再重新发行)。
在WARP 旗下发行了多张未来主义音乐专辑后，Pritchard 继续尝试一种挣脱牢笼，前所未闻的音乐类型，开始将天际之音融入极具魅惑的dubstep，这就是 HARMONIC 313。
首次莅临中国，让我们期待这位出类拔萃的音乐人，通过2个小时的现场演绎，震撼The Shelter 大舞台，并用深情款款又扭曲的音乐冲洗我们久染世俗声音的耳朵。
