In their first show of the year, the Shanghai’s underground house and techno crew, Void, take a break from hosting the likes of Underground Resistance, Robert Hood, DJ Bone and Neil Landstrumm to showcase their own residents with a live, improvised decks and drum machine performance.
Shanghai Ultra dusts off the TR-909 drum machine – a legendary piece of music techonolgy first produced in 1983 – to deliever live rhythms jammed on the fly over a conventional DJ set. He’s also rumoued to be bringing along his SH-101 analogue monosynth to add instant basslines too, so bring your dancing shoes.
Supporting will be Nat Alexander, whoose work is being followed in the online electronic music community. “Nat’s Detroit 2 Berlin” mix is ranked as a top download on the electronicstage.org blog, alongside respected DJ / Producers Vince Watson and Paul Mac.
Also appearing will be young Shanghainese DJ Fish, bringing his charasmatic presence on the wheels of steel once again, with new sounds for 2009.
Void recently released a live recording of DJ Bone’s set one month ago which is now on dance music bulletin boards and forums all over the internet. Check it out here.
