The Same As It Ever Was @ Dada Bar


After a five-year break from deejaying, Santo Chino and his The Same As It Ever Was party are back. It's not exactly The Same As It Ever Was — in a manic panic, Santo Chino sold all of his precious records and his special rotary mixer in 2017, and stopped listening to music for four years. 

Now he's refreshed, with all-new music and the same great taste: everything from early dancehall reggae to Brazilian guitar to Chicago house classics and post-punk originals (but no disco this time).

It's still nothing too precious, nothing too special — great songs and originals, played loud and in full one after the other after the other. Pretty much (almost) The Same As It Ever Was.

Fri Feb 17, doors 9pm, DJ from 10pm; RMB60.
