When people ask us for record shops in Shanghai we always tell em Uptown is the spot. Right on the corner of Pingwu Lu and Xingfu Lu and down the stairs you'll find thousands of EPs and LPs, plus vintage clothing, used electronics, and sometimes a border collie named Shamus.
So when Uptown asked us to put together a mix for them to release on cassette, we jumped on it. This is really different from our usually club fare - you may wanna clean your house, draw some pictures, or float away with this one.
Fearful of the increasing digitization of your life? Well then buy the physical cassette of this mix on Saturday, June 22nd at 390 Bar during the Love Bang x Hip Hop Hijack rave! Uptown is even giving away a boombox at the event. We're giving away lots more too, so check in at www.facebook.com/lovebanguniverse and www.weibo.com/lovebanguniverse
