April gets started with some wickedly "wholesome" parties, featuring a couple major acts from Europa, the kickstarting of an original (for Beijing) retro music night at Soi Baochao, and finally another edition of Dim Sum Disco. This is sure to be one for the history books. In a couple decades, we will all be sitting in our rocking chairs, smoking corn cob pipes, reminiscing about that time A Guy Called Gerald destroyed Dada with his transcendental musical systems.
Apr 3: Make Out Club at Soi Baochao
Get over to Soi Baochao for their inaugural retro dance night with DJs Compact Dicks and the Count of Monte Disco. You won't find monotonous EDM here, but you will find the best in 80s new wave, punk, glam, and other weird yet fun genres from music past. If you’ve ever yearned for a decent weekly 80s night, well now your prayers have been answered. Watch out as this Baochao haunt turns the sleaze up to 11. Free
Apr 3: Ikonika at Dada
Described as a “rare female face in the world of dubstep,” with releases on Warp, Hyperdub, and Planet Mu, Ikonika’s music combines fizzy synth patterns, busted up drums, and cranky sub bass to create unorthodox songs that send most DJs back to the chopping block. Catch her at Dada as she drops some massive tunes from her lengthy repertoire and blitzes out the patrons of Dada. RMB 60
Apr 4: A Guy Called Gerald + Jigsaw
Known as one of the founding fathers of UK acid house and drum n bass, Gerald Simpson is a living legend of electronic dance music. He will be making sub bass history on this night, as he’ll also be joined by young techno mastermind, Jigsaw, for a mad evening that will burn the house down with dangerously funky voodoo rays. This is one of the biggest bookings Dada has ever put together, so it will no doubt require your attendance. RMB 100
Apr 4: Dim Sum Disco featuring Juhstynn
One of our favorite BJ DJs takes the reigns during this night of nights with the Dim Sum Disco gangsters at Migas. These gurus will hustle and flow around The Bar at Migas bringing you all the way to funky town, to freak you out with some supernatural disco and house burners. Residents Boflex and Crystal Bones will be serving up a couple musical knuckle sandwiches on the side. RMB 30
