Beijing is back in da house with no less than 3 Beijingers representing the north side!
Noise Arcade is half of Cloud Choir and is twice as noisy and brutal, the man with the biggest pedal collection this side of mount Ural is back with a live that draws as much from heavy breaks as it does from electronic shoeagazing.
Thruoutin is our favourite chinese singing guy he has the face of an angel and sounds like beauty and rice fields were transposed into acoustic vibrations.
Dj Short Dicks will play all things metal, he use to run an obscure blog about expensive food called smartshanghai and hs got tattoos, which usually means he is into rock.
Drunk Monk is the man with the most expansive record collection around town, playing originals of 1970's horror movie soundtrack just like that was nothing.
Redscale Studios are at it again, mixing up origin content painted straight onto 16mm films with vintage movies.

Marking 10 years of one of our favorite music imprints, Hyperdub, Sub-Culture is proud to kick off a series of events celebrating a decade of the label with the return of one of the best DJ’s we have ever booked, Scratcha DVA!
Scratcha DVA is one of the finest producers and DJs in British underground electronic music today. Signed to Kode9’s Hyperdub label, Scratcha’s unique take on dance music is very hard to pigeonhole, from his sublime debut album ‘Pretty Ugly’ to the straight up dancefloor destroyers such as his ‘Fly Juice’ and ‘Mad Hatter’ EPs, his versatility proves why he is one of the most exciting artists around today. An exceptional DJ and once long-time host of Rinse FM’s Grimey Breakfast show, Scratcha now hosts the monthly Hyperdub show alongside Kode9 and tours the world representing Hyperdub and his own label – DVA Music. Scratcha’s last visit to China still has a fond place in our memories; we are very excited to have him back for a second round!
