DJing Cut&Paste

Just a quick rundown of the good times that took place over the past weekend. The weekend started early on Thursday when Ratatat played their first show in Shanghai. Packed venue and a good show. Even though I would be willing to bet that 75% of the people there had never heard a single song of theirs they still seemed to be into it.

Friday I went to the The Seagull Lao KeLe exhibition presented by Jellymon. The show’s very was really great and had some interesting work done by local photographers. The night after that consisted of drinks, late night noodle session featuring the best hand pulled noodles ever and then a LOST marathon.

Saturday I DJed the Cut&Paste contest. I must say it was probably the longest set I have ever played totalling in about 5.5 hours of music. The back was aching and by the end I was ready to be done. It was good though, and cool to see a different crowd of local designers. The competitors were nearly all local and I would have to say I was more impressed with their work than the competitors I saw in LA. Much thanks to Panthea Lee for setting up that gig for me. After the Cut&Paste event I met up with Li who had just made her 17 hour flight back to Shanghai from Stockholm. We met up with Sammy at his place for a chill night and somehow ended up at karaoke until 7am.

Good, good times were had. By far the best weekend I have had since being back in Shanghai.

Tomorrow I will be DJing for Shanghai’s first Cut&Paste design competition. Being a much more experienced designer than DJ it’s kind of funny that my first experience being involved with Cut&Paste would be DJing. But regardless it should be fun.
