1. Roche Musique Label Night: Dabuell & Kartell & Darius
Roche Musique is one of Paris’ most celebrated labels - built on big name DJs such as Darius, Kartell, and Dabuell. Each brings their own personal touches to a label known for its eclectic mix of House, Nu Disco, and Funk. And they’re coming to one of Shanghai’s biggest nightclubs, Arkham, this Friday for a rave night of SENSATIONAL music!!
Having collaborated with big name DJs like Marshmello, Ookay and Jauz, Slushii is making a name for himself in the EDM world. Think of his sound as a cool blend of dubstep drops, trap drums, and trance synth all in one. It’s cutting-edge, it’s unique, and it’s coming to Shanghai's Linx this weekend!
3. The Pearl's Cabaret Soiree: Tango
As you surely already know, The Pearl hosts amazing Cabaret Soirees that are so lively and full of fun that you’ll walk out dancing like a Vegas show girl. This particular soiree tells a story of a young girl’s destiny through the language of TANGO!! And if that didn’t already convince you, then this definitely will: you get full dinner service all night and a free drink with the show!
Hair of the dog and all that...
