That’s Shenzhen takes a look at the best gigs of the week.


Apr 12: Batu x Ploy with Special Guest: object blue @ Oil

Described by the venue owners as their biggest show since their one year anniversary, we are also extremely thrilled to be welcoming three fantastic producers to Shenzhen this month. Batu, the Bristol-based owner of Timedance label, was named amongst Mixmag’s top 20 DJs of 2017, while Ploy’s insatiable bongo-based tunes, as on Ramos / Roy’s Rolls, are instant dancefloor crackers. Beijing-raised, London-based object blue, on the other hand, is a woman rising to the top of the global experimental scene at the moment, thanks to fantastic releases on Tobago Tracks and Let’s Go Swimming in 2018. 

Fri Apr 12, 10pm; RMB100 presale, RMB150 at the door. Oil. See event listing. Tickets

WIN!

We’re giving away one pair of tickets to see Batu, Ploy and object blue at Oil this Friday. For a chance to win, share this post on your Moments with the caption #ThatsShenzhen #Batu. Send the screenshot to our official WeChat account (ThatsShenzhen), along with your name and phone number.


Apr 13: Record Store Day @ Vinylhouse

Ray M and Tomasz Guiddo will take to the decks for an evening of delicious music, while fans of vinyl can snap up records at a discount of 12 percent. Celebrate Record Store Day at one of our favorite vinyl stores in style this weekend. 

Sat Apr 13, 9pm; free entry. Vinylhouse. See event listing.


Apr 13: Robedoor @ Oil

Robedoor is made up of Alex Brown and Britt Brown (Britt is the founder of influential underground tape/vinyl label Not Not Fun), who have a style falling between noise, doom, drone and industrial. Very loud, powerful and intense stuff.

Sat Apr 13, 9pm; RMB60. Oil. See event listing

WIN!

We’re giving away one pair of tickets to see Robedoor at Oil this Saturday. For a chance to win, share this post on your Moments with the caption #ThatsShenzhen #Robedoor. Send the screenshot to our official WeChat account (ThatsShenzhen), along with your name and phone number.


Apr 13: Benjamin Damage @ Oil

Benjamin Damage’s roots lie firmly within the UK’s underground. Drawing on everything from early rave and jungle, to ’90s house, Benjamin’s non-purist approach to techno produces an energy and emotion rarely found in modern electronic music. After the closure of his former label, 50Weapons, Damage joined up with the R&S crew. In celebration of 35 years of R&S music, the folks at Hoodoo bring Benjamin Damage, along with Shanghai Ultra, to Shenzhen for a top evening of techno music. 

Sat Apr 13, 10pm; RMB80 presale, RMB100 at the door. Oil. See event listing. Tickets


Apr 13: Lucky Tapes @ B10

Following on from the release of their latest album, dressing, city popsters Lucky Tapes bring funk and mellow vibes back to China this month. After a successful China tour in 2018, it’s more than likely that this show will sell out very fast, so get your hands on a ticket as soon as you can. 

Sat Apr 13, 8pm; RMB200 presale, RMB400 VIP presale. B10. See event listing. Tickets


Apr 14: Wild Nothing @ Hou Live

The brainchild of pop maestro Jack Tatum, Wild Nothing are another dreamy indie rock act set to hit Shenzhen this April. With a new album, Indigo, under his belt, Tatum’s deliciously crafted atmospheric pop will surely appeal to Chinese fans. 

Sun Apr 14, 8pm; RMB280 presale, RMB360 at the door. Hou Live. See event listing. Tickets
