Shanghai just got a hell of a lot cooler… And I’m not even talking about the weather!
If you ask me what I miss the most about Montreal (besides family, friends and Faust), I invariably think back on the vibrant and exciting minimal techno scene that has emerged since 2000. Whether it’s a cozy electronic show at Casa del Popolo, or the insanely cool performances of Mutek, I dearly miss listening to original and innovative electronic music in Montreal. I miss it so much, in fact, that when I heard about Mutek Beijing last year, I immediately bought a ticket for the Chinese capital and flew over for a weekend.
Now, thanks to Shanghaiist, I have discovered that minimal techno concerts are being held on a semi-regular basis… in Shanghai!
The next event is titled Microfabrique 2, and will take place on Saturday, February 11th, 10 PM, at Fabrique (8 Jian Guo Zhong Lu, near Si Nan Lu – 6415-0070). The special guest of the evening is DJ Matthias Schaffhäuser, from German minimal techno capital Cologne. Also on show will be B6, a local artist, who will perform a live minimal electro house set.
Bring on the microbeats, Shanghai!!
