Andy C Drum and Bass’ number one
DnB promoters Phreaktion are celebrating their 10th year in Asia on Friday (they blew the candles out on their 3rd year in Shanghai last November) and to make sure this birthday’s extra-special, they’ve booked the biggest name in Drum and Bass – Andy C.
While fans of the DnB genre won’t need an introduction, for other event-goers, party animals, Bund refugees and the otherwise generally curious: Andy C is the man. He’ll be performing alongside veteran MC Lowqui (also no stranger to Shanghai).
DJ Siesta, whom we interviewed last year, is the brains behind Phreaktion. She’s brought just about anyone who’s anyone on the Drum and Bass circuit to Shanghai town, but even she was barely able to contain her excitement.
“It’s been a long time coming. I’m extremely excited about having Andy C to celebrate ’10 years of Phreaktion’… it surely has been a bumpy road and I’m glad we stuck to it and now it’s come full-circle. Can’t wait for year 11 to start!” she told us.
Following Bon Bon’s impromptu closure, Phreaktion’s moved their center of operations: You can now find them at the Zhijiang Dream Factory, testing out SOMA’s new Friday prices and (allegedly) updated equipment.
