That’s Shenzhen takes a look at the best gigs of the week.
Fri, Apr 5: Wata Igarashi/SHAO @ Oil
Two of East Asia’s hottest techno producers join forces this weekend, as Japan’s Wata Igarashi and China’s SHAO come to Oil. Igarashi’s ability to create hypnotic, absorbing atmospherics with futuristic vibes have earned him plenty of fans around the world in the past few years, while SHAO’s reputation has been booming after multiple releases on Berlin label Tresor Records.
We’re giving away one pair of tickets to see Wata Igarashi and Shao at Oil this Friday. For a chance to win, share this post on your Moments with the caption #ThatsShenzhen #SHAO. Send the screenshot to our official WeChat account (ThatsShenzhen), along with your name and phone number.
Sat, Apr 6: Shangxin Yujue/Midnight Ping Pong @ Hou Live
In celebration of Taiwanese label Airhead Records 7th anniversary, these two fantastic bands arrive, almost inconspicuously, to our shores for a pair of shows in Shenzhen and Guangzhou. Shangxin Yujue’s harder punk rock stylings match well with the mellow vibes of Midnight Ping Pong. This should be a cracker.
Sat, Apr 6: Unchained Pres. Fixate @ Oil
Unchained return with another stellar lineup this weekend, presenting British bass polymath Fixate, whose tunes take on the various guises of jungle, grime, dubstep, footwork and more. Hong Kong-based Australian, Lyndon Jarr, will also be in attendance on the evening alongside stellar local acts Daniel Power, 3asic and more.
