That's Shenzhen takes a look at the best gigs of the week:
Fri, Nov 9: Hoodoo 4th Birthday @ Oil Club
Marking their 4th birthday in style this weekend, Hoodoo invite Irish techno DJ Sunil Sharpe and English duo Blackhall & Bookless to join in on the celebrations. Sharpe arrives with a stellar reputation, owing in part to a legendary London Boiler Room set (one of three Boiler Rooms he has played), and also in part due to his vast musical knowledge and vinyl-based sets. This is one of a pair of Chinese gigs for Sharpe, with the other taking place in Shanghai. This Friday's show is a major get for brilliant techno promotors Hoodoo.
Sat, Nov 10: 4H Trendy Music Festival @ Splendid China Folk Village
Winner of Rap of China, GAI, arrives in Shenzhen to partake in the aptly titled Trendy Music Festival. Bringing together a bunch of hip-hop artists from around the country, this festival will shed a light on the prevailing trends and talents that populate that particular music scene today.
Sat, Nov 10: Stolen @ B10 Live
Having teamed up with famed producer and musical journeyman, Mark Reeder, last year to make their fantastic self-titled EP, Chengdu six-piece rockers, Stolen, came back with a bang this year, following up that slick record with another equally awesome piece of work, Fragment. Fragment is a mesmerising electronic piece that combines funk and sci-fi, showing a band at the top of their game.
Sat, Nov 10: Loefah @ Oil Club
British dubstep and bass pioneer Loefah arrives in Oil this weekend. Having built his reputation as a dubstep wonder, Loefah later moved away from the format and founded his own bass label, Swamp 81. His music makes use of disparate vocal samples, chunky bass lines and dense atmospherics, creating a stunning visual sound with his storytelling manner.
