Sometimes it feels like Shanghai is getting too cool for even us. Australian record label Modular Records – responsible for unearthing talents like Cut Copy, Wolfmother and The Presets – is launching a division here in this city. Basically, that means we can count on a sudden increase in indie-dance-rock booty shaking in the near future.
To kick off their (hopefully long) stay here, Modular is throwing a four-part launch bonanza with the first party happening this weekend.
On Friday, they’ll be bringing Australian electrosynth post-disco remix masters Bang Gang Deejays to The Warehouse. Their sound, somewhere between a rave and a rock (rave rock?), has been compared to hipster dance floor favorites Simian Mobile Disco. They’ll be supported by R3, Adept, The Dynamic and the always fun S.T.DJs.
Where: The Warehouse, Bldg 10, No. 237 Xitai Lu (near Longshui Nan Lu) 喜泰路237号10号楼 (近龙水南路)
When: Starts at 10PM on Friday, May 15.
