“Swindle ranges amongst the few names that point grime into new and exciting directions.– Red Bull Music Academy Radio
After the huge success of Blak Twang in 2014, JUE | Music + Art and Electric East are back with one of the UK’s most respected producers and DJ’s, Swindle. With releases on Butterz, Brownswood and Deep Medi and having collaborated with the likes of Wiley, Professor Green, Big Narstie and Ghetts, it’s no surprise that he continues to shine as a key producer in the grime scene.
Swindle has toured the world as a solo act and as part of “Mala in Cuba”. For this debut in China, he’ll be joined by producer Conrank, a major force in the local Shanghai scene. Conrank had a huge year in 2014, which saw him collaborate with DJ Shadow and tour the US. 2015 looks to be just as exciting with a forthcoming track on 12th Planets LA-based label “SMOG” and various tours are in the works. Rounding the bill off, we’ve got Electric East’s killer residents, Zean (with a new release forthcoming on Rankadank), Q-Kraft and Misloop, who time and time again deliver the best bass music from around the world. All this will be packed into one of the most legendary nightclubs in China, The Shelter. You’ve got no excuses – this will be one of the heaviest nights in 2015.
Date: March 20, 2015 – Friday
Address: 5 Yongfu Road, near West Fuxing Road

About JUE | Music + Art:
觉 / JUE – to sense (as in: an assault on all 5 senses)
JUE | Music + Art was founded in 2009 to bring the creative communities of Shanghai & Beijing closer. Every year since then, promoters Split Works have pooled their resources with those of their favorite friends from across the artistic spectrum to present a multi-venue, multi-disciplinary romp across the middle of March. If you want a snapshot of where China is creatively, you could do worse than spending a week at JUE | Music + Art.
“JUE sneaks into the city streets and lights the creative torch ablaze. The freshest international artist and locally rooted creative join forces to switch on the creative pulse of the cities. When JUE is happening, the whole city seems alive” – Jetty @ Sina Weibo Music
We look forward to welcoming you…
