About The Nightlife Residency a.k.a. NLR北京

The Nightlife Residency (a.k.a. NLR北京) is an interdisciplinary project that is dedicated to the potential of experimenting with the definition of club-culture, particularly its transformative power with respect to ideas of community, identity, and creativity.

The NLR北京 is a Beijing-based collective that looks at nightclubs as a soil for new artistic production and explores the symbiotic relationship between nightlife and contemporary art. Each year the NLR北京 invites an individual for a two-months residency, who as a producer or DJ extends what they do into the visual realm and/or a visual artist who takes inspiration from electronic music and nightclubs.

食品まつり a.k.a foodman

DJ/Trackmaker/Painter based in Yokohama, Japan. Takahide Higuchi, better known as 食品ま つり(Shokuhin Matsuri) a.k.a foodman, creates music that defies categorisations – and is one of the few artists that actually fit this description. There are traces of almost every electronic music genre, from juke, footwork, ambient, house, techno, to noise, but those elements are dissected and morphed together then driven to extreme without giving you a second to come up with a definitive genre. Higuchi masterfully uses accidents and limitation as a catalyst to create the noisy technicolour of these sonic collages that has titillated, confused, and enchanted music obsessives far and wide.

After releasing his debut album from NY/OH experimental label Orange Milk, his music has been released from international labels including Diplo's Mad Decent and its offshoot Good Enuff. His recent albums (Ez Minzoku, 2016 and ARU OTOKO NO DENSETSU, 2018) have been praised by the likes of Pitchfork (which listed Ez Minzoku as one of "The 20 Best Experimental Albums of 2016"), FACT magazine ("The 20 best Bandcamp releases of 2016"), Tiny Mix Tapes ("2016: Favorite 50 Music Releases"), Resident Advisor, and so on. His ever-evolving and mutating musical vocabulary draws from every kind of music he stumbles across, from Chicago footwork to Okinawan folk music of his roots, ambient to J-pop, Talvin Singh's Indian classical music/drum 'n' bass fusion to classic videogame soundtracks, then twists them all with his playful psychedelia. This extends to his remixes and DJ mixes, including his monthly residency at NTS radio and i-D magazine's "i-DJ" guest mix, which was also picked up on Pitchfork's "10 Best DJ Mixes of March 2017" list.

This prolific and truly unusual catalogue of work has taken him on worldwide tours, and since making his international debut in mid-2016, he has appeared on Boiler Room, Low End Theory, and Unsound just to name a few, as well as headline shows across the US and Europe.

"He makes seriously fun weirdo music that we can't get enough of." - i-D
"in FOODMAN’s world, everyone is forever lost and forever thrilled about it" - FACT magazine
"It’ll hijack your spine and leave you wriggling on the floor, begging for more of that sweet, dangerous squeak" - Tiny Mix Tapes
“The worlds his tracks inhabit are not the dystopias of so much hybrid club music, but colourful spaces conceived in rainbow-like bursts of imagination.” – Resident Advisor

Howie Lee

“The composer at the forefront of China’s club scene” – Dazed

Clattering percussion. Skittering rhythms. Found sounds and field recordings. The sound of traditional China, dragged kicking and screaming into the electric age. With his uniquely “Made in China” aesthetic, Howie is an electronic music visionary – creating a hybrid club sound rooted in the Middle Kingdom, but built for our densely interconnected globe. Howie’s debut EP was released via renowned UK tastemaker Trapdoor Records, followed by a 2015 full-length on Alpha Pup.

He played the first-ever Boiler Room recording in China (an event that smashed global streaming records), and has clocked appearances at SxSW, the UK’s Shambala Festival, and India’s Magnetic Fields. ‘White Plain’, off 2015’s Mù Chè Shān Chū, was featured on Apple’s ‘Shot on iPhone’ campaign. His 2017 ‘Homeless’ EP received critical acclaim from the likes of Fader, Vice, and Dazed, and his intricately produced re-work of Charli XCX’s ‘Boys’ (one of the songs of the year), topped streaming charts in China and was a viral pop confection. 2018’s ‘Natural Disaster’ EP is his latest release.

And music is just the beginning. As founder and label boss, the Do Hits collective he established in 2011 is now one of Asia’s most forward-thinking crews. As a curator, he’s overseen some of the country’s most exciting releases, with a string of successful EPs and LPs from label mates Jason Hou, Yllis, and Guzz. As a filmmaker, he’s produced several stunning abstract CGI works that carry subtle marks of his Chinese identity. Howie’s visceral, high-energy live shows are constantly evolving, and the latest version (built and refined over extensive touring) was debuted in 2017.

Fadescha

Vidisha-Fadescha (Delhi, IN) is an artist, curator and activist, working across disciplines. Fadescha as a DJ showcases acid, industrial, hard Techno as well as melodic sounds with afrotech and others. In her artistic work she has created soundscapes with field recording compilations. Fadescha considers parties as spaces for care, solidarity, a political and artistic practice, and is a committed raver. She is a founding member of a Delhi based all-femme creative music collective, Coven Code. Fadescha is The Nightlife Residency 2019 resident.

About The Nightlife Residency a.k.a. NLR北京

夜生活驻地项目(Nightlife Residency, a.k.a. NLR北京) 是一个跨界跨学科的项目,致力于尝试对夜生活进行重新定义,关注其对社群、身份和创造力产生观念改变的可能性。

NLR北京是一个基于北京的计划,由一个视夜店为艺术创作土壤的组合发起,意在探索夜生活和当代艺术的共生关系。每年我们会邀请一个把实践延伸到视觉领域的制作人/DJ,或一位从夜生活里汲取灵感的艺术家来到北京做为期两个月的驻地。

食品まつり a.k.a foodman

来自日本横浜的DJ/制作人/画家,樋口贵英(Takahide Higuchi)以食品ま つり(Shokuhin Matsuri) a.k.a foodman 的名字创作着反抗分类的音乐,并是少数真正符合这个描述的艺术家之一。他的音乐中有着几乎每种电子音乐的痕迹,从 juke, footwork, ambient, house, techno, 到噪音音乐。这些元素被分割并重新融合到一起,然后被推到极致,让你完全来不及想出一个归类。樋口贵英熟练地运用创作中的意外和边界作为创作本身的催化剂,他的这些充满噪音与工业颜色的声音拼贴让音乐发烧友们感到被挑逗,被迷惑,然后深深陶醉。

在从纽约及俄亥俄实验厂牌Orange Milk发行他的首张专辑后,他的音乐已经从包括Diplo的 Mad Decent及其分支Good Enuff在内的国际厂牌发行。他最新的专辑(Ez Minzoku,2016 和 ARU OTOKO NO DENSETSU,2018)受到Pitchfork(Ez Minzoku被列为2016年“20个最佳实验专辑”之一),FACT杂志(“2016年Bandcamp最佳20个发行”),Tiny Mix Tapes(“2016:最喜爱的50音乐发行”),Resident Advisor等的称赞。他不断发展和演变的音乐词汇来自他偶然发现的各种音乐,从芝加哥footwork到他家乡的冲绳民间音乐,从ambient到J-pop,Talvin Singh的印度古典音乐/drum 'n' bass融合到经典游戏配乐。他用灵巧的迷幻音乐扭曲它们,将其延伸到他的混音和DJ中,包括他在NTS电台的每月驻留和i-D杂志的“i-DJ”客座混音(该混音被选入Pitchfork的“2017年3月10大DJ混音”榜单)。

大量且真正不同寻常的一系列作品使他参加了全球各地的演出。自2016年中期首次亮相以来,他出现在Boiler Room,Low End Theory和Unsound等等场所,以及横跨美国和欧洲的DJ主场。

“他制作的是让人听不够的非常有趣又古怪音乐。” - ID
“在FOODMAN的世界里,每个人都永远迷失并永远为此感到兴奋” - FACT杂志
“它会劫持你的脊椎,让你在地板上蠕动,乞求更多那种甜蜜,危险的吱吱声” - Tiny Mix Tapes
“他的音乐世界并不是杂交俱乐部音乐的反乌托邦,而是多彩的空间,以彩虹般的想象力迸发出来。” - Resident Advisor

Howie Lee

“中国夜店生活里最前沿的作曲家” - Dazed

飞跃而过的打击节奏。即有的声音和现场录音。被又踢又叫着拉入电子时代的传统中国声音。 Howie凭借独特的“中国制造”美学,成为了一位有远见的电子音乐人,创造的混合型俱乐部声音植根于中国而又面向紧密联系的全球。 Howie的首张EP由着名的英国厂牌Trapdoor Records发行,随后是2015年由Alpha Pup发行的全长专辑。

他在中国的首次Boiler Room中演出,并在SxSW、英国Shambala音乐节和印度的Magnetic Fields上出现。 2015年的MùChèShānChū专辑里的track “White Plain”在苹果的“iPhone on Shot”活动中亮相。他的2017年“Homeless” EP获得了Fader,Vice和Dazed等的一致好评,以及他对Charli XCX“Boys”(年度歌曲之一)的精心重新制作,在中国的排行榜上名列前茅。 2018年的“Natural Disaster”EP是他的最新的发行。

制作音乐只是一个开始。他还是2011年成立的Do Hits collective的创始人和厂牌老板。这是现在亚洲最具前瞻性思维的团体之一。作为策展人,他负责了国内最令人兴奋的一系列发行,其中包括来自厂牌伙伴Jason Hou,Yllis和Guzz的成功EP和LP。作为一名电影人,他制作了几部令人惊叹的抽象CGI作品,这些作品带有中国身份的微妙印迹。Howie振奋肺腑的高能量现场一直不断发展,通过大量的巡回演出改建完善,最新版本于2017年首次亮相。

Fadescha

Vidisha-Fadescha(德里,印度)是一位艺术家、策展人和活动家,实践跨越各种学科。作为DJ,Fadescha通常会放Techno和House,倾向于Acid,、工业、硬核Techno和Afro Tech旋律和其他电子音乐。在她的艺术作品中,她创作了带有现场录音合集的音景。对于Fadesha来说,派对是关爱和团结的空间,一个政治和艺术的实践,她也是一个忠实的raver。她是基于德里的全femme音乐团体Coven Code的创始人之一。Fadescha是2019年NLR的驻地艺术家。
