Swing by Le Cafe de Stagiaires this Thursday evening for some very chill vibes. The venue’s living room concept sees them allow all-comers to try their hand at some music, while audience remembers can grab a drink, sit back, relax and chat. Sounds groovy.

Fluxion’s music was born in urban Greece and found its path during the mid ’90s in a city that existed in a state of ‘flux’ like no other in the 20th century. Berlin’s social, historical and political factors all came to bear both consciously and unconsciously on the musicians’ experimenting, while he lived in the city around the turn of the millennium. Head over to 44KW this weekend to catch the Greek DJ spinning techno and ambient beats. 

May 31, 9pm; RMB100 presale, RMB120 door. 44KW. See event listing

London via New York, artist Orlando fits between the dancehall and digi-grime spheres. His productions arealways brimming with emotional complexities. With releases on Brooklyn’s Mixpak and UK’s Local Action, his ambient pop soundscapes are at ease with the natural world as much as the club.

Majorca-born musician Marc Melia arrives in China with his first-ever solo album, Music for Prophet, which sees him make use of repetitive looping beats made on gorgeous spacy synthesizers, ostensibly aimed at robot ears. In the works for around five years, Melia made the album on a Prophet synth and accompanied it with an awesome 43-minute video of a cassette tape of Music for Prophet flying into space. 

Jun 1, 8.30pm; RMB80 presale, RMB100 door. Yuyintang Park. See event listing. Tickets
