Mar 3: R3hab

Fadil El Ghoul, otherwise known as R3hab will be stopping off in Beijing as part of his China tour. The Moroccan-born DJ is one of the biggest names in the Dutch modern house scene, and is known for his darker, early psytrance style.

Fri Mar 3, 10am-5pm; price TBD. Elements, see event listing.

Mar 3: Robert Parker

In addition to being one of the most well-known producers in Stockholm, Robert Parker stands out for his retro style. He draws inspiration from music and movies from the 1980s, but just to mix things up he puts a little bit of French house and disco in there too. He'll be releasing his latest album Awakening this month and will be landing at Dada on Friday night. Ectoplazm and Pei will support.

Fri Mar 3, 10pm-late; price TBD. Dada, see event listing.

Mar 3: Ran Groove Vol.4 Release Party

Ran Music will have two epic nights of music at Rec Room in honor of the release of their latest Ran Groove Vol.4 Compilation. There will be six live acts and DJ Watermelon will be there too. On Friday expect a whole slew of members from the Ran Groove sublabel. And on Saturday, Major and Thruoutin will be doing their thing.

March 3-4, 10pm-late; price TBD. The Rec Room.

Mar 4: SnowMelt Festival 2017

SnowMelt Festival might just be the perfect way to bid ado to winter. As always there will be tons of techno and house beats on the mountaintop stage, skiing, human bowling and a bunch of other activities. And this time around there will be bottomless brunches (always a good idea). It’s definitely gonna be a party. 

Sat Mar 4, 3-10pm; Beijing Huaibei Ski Resort by the Great Wall; RMB60 shuttle buss RMB150 (early bird), RMB200 (advance).

Mar 4: Fantastic Man 

Fantastic Man is the latest solo project of Australian DJ, producer and label owner Mic Newman. What started as an edits alias in 2011 has turned into quite the successful musical enterprise. Fantastic Man has seen releases on London’s Wolf Music, New York’s Let’s Play House, Berlin’s Love On The Rocks and Newman’s own labels, Superconscious and Fine Choice. The Berlin-based DJ is known for his eclectic and ambient beats. He's played some of the world’s top festivals and clubs, and he’s landing in Beijing (at Dada to be exact) for the first time ever this Saturday. Boflex will support in this Dim Sum Disco party night. 

Sat Mar 4, 10pm; Price TBD. Dada, see event listing.

Mar 4: Anetha

Having made her production debut in 2015, Anetha is a relative newcomer to the techno world. But don’t let that fool you into thinking that she’s not got the chops. As a DJ, Anetha has been ripping up France’s underground electronic scene as a resident at Blocaus, one of Paris’ most important new club nights. This week she brings the party to Lantern, home of techno in our fair city. As well as hypnotic but danceable rollers, the young DJ is known for featuring a bit of 90s throwback. (Although we mean ‘90s throwback’ in a techno sense. No Ricky Martin, sorry.)

Sat Mar 4, 10p; RMB80, free before 11pm. Lantern, see event listing

Mar 4: Latina & Devassa Present a Night in Rio Carnival

It's that time of year again! The annual Brazilian Carnival Party is coming back with a vengeance on Saturday. There will be a special dinner buffet with Brazilian BBQ and beer, as well as caipirinhas, samba bands, samba dancers and Brazilian DJ Juliana Lima. Best costume will win a prize at midnight. 

Sat March 4, 5pm-2am. RMB388 / RMB100 after 10pm; 201, 2/F, Grand Summit Building, 19 Dongfang Donglu Chaoyang 朝阳区东方东路19号 (8531 5287).

Mar 4: 8-BIT x Arrow Factory Brewing Beerio Kart Tournament

8-BIT and Arrow Factory are teaming up for their first ever Beerio Kart Tournament. What is a Beerio Kart Tournament? Well it's the brilliant combination of Mario Kart N64 and beer. It's totally free to participate (signup is at 9pm). And yes, there will be prizes for the winners and GuanXi Pale Ale will be RMB25 all night long.

Sat Mar 4, 9pm; 8-Bit, see event listing.
