XIA | 下 has been the city's only night dedicated to the more ambient side of musical genres celebrates one spectacular year of laid-back vibes and downtempo tunes. Having brought together some the finest alternative musicians off the underground; from live Berber bands to Shanghai stalwarts, classically infused electronica, and multi-instrumental live shows, we've had it all. But for this special occasion, we are going back to basics, with the full original crew playing their greatest hits in a B2B2B2B2B format. It may get funky and freaky, but it will be dancefloor ambrosia form beginning to end. As always, free entry! AND AND AND, w ehave a few surprises in store for those that come early!
Born and bred in Belgium, at the age of fifteen Kodama moved to global music capital London where he picked up his love for psytrance at the now legendary Drome.
Now already over a decade in China, he spent most of that time as half of Magic Garden planting the seeds of the global psychedelic trance scene, throwing fully decorated parties at iconic venues (some now long come and gone) such as club dkd, G+, MAO, Park 97, Madam Zung, Rojam, SOS, Babyface, Shelter, Dada, Logo, Cinderella etc.
Arno D & Johannes
Arno came from South France and moved to London in 1995. In 2004, he started "Soul berries", a DJ settlement music project that promoted Funky beats. With a lot of shots and Tech-House, they used to perform in Herbal, Aquum, 333, the White House, ministry of sound and more.
They have worked together for the past 5 years and their performances are in the style of Techno/Tech-House, and they will also be integrated into Chill step and Bass depending on the situation.
Ancient Alias shifts a few feet sideways from the VJ panel to the DJ decks for a special downtempo set. Unlike his driving psychedelic trance which straddles the line between dark and twilight, at XIA he will show a different side of his musical character. An immersive aural journey will take you through melodic glitch and dub, whilst keeping the familiar psychedelic edge.
Aktüman is making his debut as a DJ, but he has been going to festivals for about a decade. Growing up surrounded by many cultures and beign a big fan of music, he always seeks new exotic sounds, underground artists and unknown gems to add to his collection.
