Mar 12: Gulou Double Decker #2: HVAD
Join the second installation of Gulou Double Decker with the sonic wizardry of Hari Shankar Kishore, aka DJ HVAD. Be prepared for a visceral blend of programmed Indian percussion, glitched breaks, and melted samples. He’s joined by White+’s Wang Xu, Linan, and Jerry Chan. Go upstairs to Temple Bar if you want to be a crushed by the weight of sludgy guitars and beat to death drum kits from acts like Gum Bleed, DiD, Death Narcissists and Solaris. RMB 30
 

Mar 13: JUE x Lost Cargo: Cian O'Donnell
Join Lost Cargo as they present a night of eclectic, strictly vinyl sounds with guest Cian O’Donnell from New Zealand’s Conch Records. Originally from the UK, Cian has been manipulating turntables since 1989 in various music hubs around the globe. Join him for an epic night of cross genre vinyl spinning that will surely put even the most discerning tastes at ease.
 RMB 50
 

Mar 14: Wooozy Offline: Logos + Forma
This will be a must see evening brought to you by Woozy Offline. First up is Forma, who will take you on an extra terrestrial Tangerine Dream vision quest with a heavy arsenal of analog modular synths and drum machines, followed by Logos, a gent known for tearing things up with his instrumental grime. RMB 80
 

Mar 17: Jay Electronica & Miss Ko Double Bill
Native New Orleans rhyme machine Jay Electronica and Queens hip-hop tour de force Miss Ko meet for the first time in the milieu that is JUE. The two make up an undeniably compelling and exciting double bill with Iron Mic crews in support. It’s a rare pleasure to have this sort of compelling hip hop visit the capital. So make sure not to miss as they flaunt their inspired word play and incendiary mixes on the Yugong Yishan stage. RMB 220, RMB 150 (advance)
 

Mar 19: Awesome Tapes From Africa
Since 2006, Brian Shimkovitz's Awesome Tapes From Africa blog has been uncovering obscure and wonderfully funky sounds from across the African continent. The incredible interest that developed from this musical sharing resource eventually led to him taking these tapes around the globe as a DJ, from club to festival to DIY space, bringing his labor of love to life with 2-3 hour sets blending folkloric pop, left-field dance floor gems, and hip-hop beats he's collected from crates in remote marketplaces across Africa. RMB 50
 

Mar 20: Sub-Culture Presents: The Bug & Manga
In his twenty plus years performing Kevin Martin has provided bass-booming remixes for Grace Jones, Thom Yorke, and Primal Scream, and is considered to be one of the most versatile electronic musicians on the planet. Experience his unique genre melting live set as he’s joined by London-based grime king, Manga, as a part of this year’s JUE Festival. RMB 100
