“Event Time: 2012-09-29″
Hamburg duo Digitalism are one of the hottest names on the electro circuit following almost a decade of globally successful remixes. They broke out with their remix of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army”, which opened the doors for dance acts to start remixing rock and indie hits. Digitalism went on to remix Klaxons, The Test Icicles, Cut Copy, The Futureheads and dozens of other bands, while releasing a string of their own hits, mixing a punk ethos with solid German techno roots. They’re touring behind their latest album, “Dude I Love You”, and the latest DJ Kicks album, which they mixed, and they’re in Shanghai for a single date, this DJ set at Ibiza.
This is a huge, Chinese-style club, with perhaps 60 tables clustered around a decent-sized dancefloor. They have done a decent job since opening of bringing in good international DJs, with some huge bookings such as John Digweed and Run DMC’s Rev Run. The crowd is a mix of well-heeled, bottle drinking locals with younger foreigners on the dancefloor. Usually free to get in unless there’s a huge DJ. Door staff aren’t too keen on flip-flops.
