BEN UFO / PEARSON SOUND / PANGAEA  @ Dada Beijing - Wednesday April 30

Antidote presents @ Dada Bar Beijing ...

Wednesday, April 30


* kicking off the May golden week holiday with this banger of a night *


Hessle Audio has become the little label that could - breaking down boundaries between British genres such as dubstep and grime, and a wider array of house, techno and experimental sounds from across the globe.

Today’s dancefloors have become spaces where genres collide, and Hessle Audio co-founders Ben UFO, Pearson Sound and Pangaea have been instrumental in that shift. On the label’s releases and in their acclaimed DJ sets, the Hessle guys have created new rhythmic tensions by blending tracks from across time and space.

Hessle Audio was formed in 2007 during the exploding dubstep scene, and quickly became one of the main players in the British bass movement. As that scene ebbed and flowed, the co-founders’ musical scope broadened to include everything from techno and glitchy house to hardcore and leftfield experimental beats, and all three co-founders have released separate Fabriclive compilations charting this new direction.

Now for the first time in Southeast Asia, PUSH are bringing the co-founders of Hessle Audio together for an event that will showcase the different facets of this influential and groundbreaking label.


Ben is one of the few top global DJs to have made an impact without releasing a single record of his own – his reputation is solely the result of his skills behind the decks. He was the first DJ to play material by producers such as Blawan and Joy Orbison, both now scene figureheads, and his biweekly slot on London’s leading ex-pirate radio station, RinseFM, was considered to be one of the only places to hear the most exclusive new music. In 2013 he was placed No 10 on the Resident Advisor poll of the world’s top 100 DJs. It’s a result which reflects Ben UFO’s ability to successfully present unfamiliar, experimental dance music to a diverse variety of audiences worldwide.


Pearson Sound, another Hessle co-founder who refuses to sit still or be easily categorised, originally performed under the name Ramadanman, one of the leading lights of the UK dubstep movement. His output as Ramadanman may have ceased, but his subsequent work as Pearson Sound and as "Chicago house legend” Maurice Donovan commands much the same level of gravitas. While his latest productions feed more from the classic notions of 4×4 dancefloor music, his sets retain every inch the precision as before and his selection is spreading out even further.


Pangaea is one of the key producers and DJs working in forward-thinking dance music today. Although he made music from an early age, Pangaea was inspired to step up his productions after being exposed to the then-emerging sounds of dubstep in 2005 and co-founded Hessle two years later. Another seven years on, Pangaea’s sound is hard to categorise and ever-shifting. While house and techno influences are apparent, his music is firmly rooted in the traditions of UK bass music past and present. The same applies to his DJ sets – check out a perfect example such as his Fabriclive disc released in January this year.

DROP THE LIME - NYC's bass music superstar - presented by Adidas Original x Wonky Kong x Dada Beijing

FRIDAY 18.10.2013

Supports from: Yauman, Shackup, Mood Supply
Door ¥50
At Dada Bar Beijing. 206 Gulou DongDajie (北京 东城区 鼓楼东大街206号)

With passion for bass and a thirst for blood, Drop the Lime combines the gun-slinging swagger of Ennio Morricone, the techno grandeur of Underworld, and the storytelling prowess of Johnny Cash, his music (like his life) is an epic adventure of mystery, heartbreak and magic. His name is synonymous with dance music in New York – the glittering, grimy pulse of the city is the main inspiration behind DTL’s now-infamous heavy bass sound.

DJ ZINC @ DaDa Beijing

Street Kids x Wonky Kong present:


support DJs
¥50 AT DOOR 


Listen to the sounds DJ Zinc:

This summer,Street Kids X Wonky Kong,we are very excited to present you the legendary DJ ZINC.

There are few names more synonymous with jungle/dnb than DJ Zinc. His anthemic "Super Sharp Shooter" and the remix of the Fugees' "Ready Or Not", are categoricaly the scene's iconic classics, both of which still devastate dance floors to this day. However, in 2009, Zinc turned his hand to a new sound he coined "CRACK HOUSE" that can only be described as a bastardized version of house music infused with Zinc's signature bass-heavy grooves and jungle/rave influences.

He is responsible for one of the biggest dance tracks in 2010 "Wile Out", featuring the talented MS Dynamite, as well as the Notting-Hill-Carnival-Vibing "Like The Dancefloor", a collaboration with poster boy A-Trak, cementing him at the forefront of the new era of bass-heavy club beats.

UK's  Ceephax Acid Crew @ Dada Beijing

Saturday, June 15 -- VOID and Dada Beijing are excited to host, the one and only .... CEEPHAX ACID CREW [Rephlex / Planet Mu Records] !!!

This mad scientist is bringing out half his studio -- a stack of 303s, 909s, 707s, 101s and other mad machines -- all classic pre-digital synths and drum machines, that create a heavy heavy monster sound that's warm and fuzzy, super catchy, but also super silly.

Ceephax, AKA Andy Jenkinson, younger brother of WARP artist Squarepusher, whips the crowd into excitement with his fun-infused melodic sound. He's also a mean frontman - his ad-libbed vocals and shouts ontop of his madcap sound makes everyone dance with a smile on their face.

He's an established name on the UK festival circuit, the creator of crazy tracks like "Eastenders Acid", and has released on Aphex Twin's Rephlex Records.

Hailed by many as one of the best LIVE electronic music performances ever seen in China, Ceephax Acid Crew blew away Shanghai last year on his visit to The Shelter.

"Ceephax was just mind-blowing. Full on, 100% analogue live acid set, definitely one of the best things I’ve seen in a long time" Shelter boss Gaz Williams on his show - high praise coming from a man who sees top international acts perform every single weekend.

Don't miss your chance to catch the 303 master of disaster this time around.

Your life will suddenly make much more sense after watching this video from Ceephax...

Jahcoozi  --  LIVE @ DADA

FakeLoveMusic & Antidote present: MADE IN BERLIN 柏林制造

with... JAHCOOZI

Monday 周一 2013, April 29 (Holiday week!)
@ Dada Beijing

About Jahcoozi --
“Beautiful and surreal… pop music from the future” writes radio legend John Peel about Jahcoozi and Resident Advisor adds about their 2010 album Barefoot Wanderer, released on Ellen Alien´s BPitch Control: “One of the year’s most disturbingly beautiful creations.” Raw Berlin energy merges genres like trip hop, grime, reggae, dubstep, glitch hop, and their own "barefoot music" genre. Collaborations with Modeselektor, Asian Dub Foundation, Anti Pop Consortium & Buraka Som Sistema have brought them comparisons to Diplo and M.I.A. There is no doubt that hell will break loose when front gal Sasha “Mother” Perera and her partner in bass Oren Gerlitz take over DADA Beijing for a liveshow that will change your perception of bass music.

“It would make sense to call Jahcoozi’s stuff Grime for Björk fans…. this might please both fans of Aphex Twin and Roots Manuva.” - XLR8R, US

“…visceral, gritty sounding, danceable dancehall riddims, glitch-hop, and experimental techno rub up against each other like long-lost pals ...” - PITCHFORK

“…music that moves your body, lyrics that stimulate your cerebral cortex ... as effective with the aural mystique and hypnosis perpetuated by Lee “Scratch” Perry and Massive Attack’s Mezzanine as making audiences lose their minds on the dance floor.” - URB Mag

没有什么比有懂你的歌迷更好了:“美妙而超现实 来自未来的流行音乐”John Peel如此评价Jahcoozi,Resident Advisor称其2010年在Ellen Alien厂牌BPitch Control下发行的Barefoot Wanderer为“本年度最美丽而令人不安的声音之一”。能比这些称赞更美妙、比他的音乐更令人不安的,唯有Jahcoozi的现场。来自柏林,融合了grime, dubstep, punk rock, hip-hop及一些electronica,Jahcoozi的性感可不仅仅女主唱Sasha是摇摆的电臀那么简单,他们真正的魅力来自宛如雾霭中晨曦一般的暗黑节拍。同Modeselektor, Asian Dub Foundation, Anti Pop Consortium & Buraka Som Sistema的合作甚至把他们带到了 Diplo和M.I.A.的高度。无疑,当Sasha “Mother” Perera和她善于制造低音的伙伴Oren Gerlitz踏足Dada Beijing的领土,地下世界将为之沸腾,他们的现场足够让你颠覆对Bass音乐的印象。

Slugabed [Ninja Tune UK] Antidote party

London bad boy SLUGABED [Ninja Tunes / Activia Benz] returns to rock China !!!

Friday, March 29 @ Dada Beijing
Saturday, March 30 @ Shelter Shanghai

+ DJs Downstate, Yauman, Shackup, Floood, Verktyget, Cavia, Drunk Monk

The Antidote brings back one of our favorites - Slugabed !!!

While so much of the world's post-dubstep / bass music productions today are making overly *serious* music, Slugabed's productions are sonically exploratory but with a sense of humor, whimsy, and straight up FUNK.

Blending influences both classic and contemporary, from the outermost reaches of dubstep, hip hop and beyond, Slugabed has received unanimous praise for his debut album 'Time Time, released on the Ninja Tune label in May 2012.

Under his Slugabed alias, 23 year-old Greg Feldwick creates music which is at once complex, deep, thoughtful and above all distinctive. It channels the energy of the best of today's bass music, through spacey bleeps and meditative melodies to explore the outermost reaches of electronic music making today.

Partly as a result of this interest he was offered a chance to remix Roots Manuva’s all-time great “Witness (1Hope)” for Ninja Tune’s twentieth anniversary boxset. The result was one of the stand-outs of that mammoth collection, and made him one of only a handful of producers to successfully remix that classic cut. In fact, Roots Manuva himself liked it so much that he personally requested the instrumental so that he could use it in his live set. Almost inevitably, the album deal with Ninja Tune followed shortly after.

Since then, things have really taken off for Feldwick. He has played at the legendary Berghain club in Berlin as part of Scuba’s SUB:STANCE night, toured the USA, Australia and Asia, and remixed both Eskmo and Stateless for his new home label, as well as supplying another remix for the mighty Roots Manuva's 'Get The Get' single.

Funny, clever, referential, sometimes moving and never anything but completely himself, Slugabed is a substantial new presence in UK bass music.

With an ongoing touring schedule throughout Europe and the world, 2 new singles planned, and work on his second LP underway, things look set to stay busy for Slugabed into 2013 and beyond.

英国顶尖先锋电子音乐厂牌Ninja-Tunes新签约的艺人Slugabed,原名Greg Feldwick,来自于英国Bath,目前居住于Brighton,年仅21岁的他被大家称为“节奏制造机”,他在当地的夜店活动“Donky Pitch”上以高超的现场乐器表演出名,即使他现在已经名噪国际,他仍然保留在这个活动驻场表演者的身份。他为诸多大牌如Starkey, Eprom和Kelpe制作了正式版本的混音曲目,他个人混音版本的美国嘻哈艺人Pharoah Monch的经典曲目“Simon Says”在全球的舞池中热播。2009年他发行的“Ultra Heat ” EP单曲专辑引起了各大厂牌的瞩目,Ninja Tunes邀请他为厂牌二十周年纪念合集制作混音,稍后他获得了Ninja Tunes的唱片合约。至此以后Slugabed的音乐事业发展越来越好,他在德国柏林的传奇夜场Berghain表演,在英国开设了Donky Pitch厂牌,在加拿大,澳大利亚,新西兰巡回演出等等。这次应上海“Antidote解毒剂”的邀请,进行亚洲多个国家的巡演。

Slugabed的音乐同时受到古典和现代音乐的影响,包括目前最流行的Dubstep电子音乐风格和Hip Hop嘻哈音乐。嘻哈方面Slugabed唤起人们对于“前Dilla时期”美国西岸嘻哈音乐的回忆,同时他又继承了英国Dubstep/Bass电子音 乐的味道。以英国著名摇滚音乐文化杂志《The Quietus》的话来说“Slugabed用自己典型英国风格的质疑态度将美国当代流行文化和英国Bass音乐最好的部分融合在一起。”

经过一年的辛苦协调工作,2013年3月30日周六在位于永福路5号的The Shelter庇护所酒吧, “Antidote解毒剂”将把这个电子音乐圈崛起的新星带到上海来
