Music label MERCIJITTER shares a few notes of their trip to Shanghai, illustrated in a short music-video at the heart of Shanghai’s underground electronic music: Shelter
“We weren’t able to visit much of Shanghai and it’s surroundings as the weather conditions were quite bad, however the night spent at The Shelter was one for the books. Starting with the setting of the club to the audience, the energy, the grittiness and finally the talented acts involved who made the club so memorable. Sadly this year will be the last year this integral institution and underground temple for Chinese electronic music will exist. Forced to close it’s doors due to licensing, we are honoured to have been able to step foot, dance and play in such a rare venue (in every sense). The Shelter, Shanghai will forever stay in our hearts.
