Say your goodbyes to 2012, ’cause its time to shake in the new year with DJ Wordy (BJ), Coldcut (UK), and the STDJs at Arkham. We have the jams, the dancefloor, the ambiance, and the right people you need for a memorable introduction to 2013.
There wouldn’t be a better way to prepare for a brand new 365 days then to ring it in with China’s finest, DJ Wordy. He will be puppetering the Arkham stage with his range of hip-hop, electro, b’more, house, reggae, and drum n’ bass. His musical energy has rocked parties all over the world, leaving crowds rapt with delight at his resonant sets. DJ Wordy has glorified his presence with many renowned fellows such as Cut Chemist, Numark, Kid Koala, DJ Food, and recording artists such as, Talib Kweli, Beenie Man, South Rakkas Crew, and Richie Spice. Getting excited?
There’s more. English dance music duo Matt Black and Jonathan More of Coldcut will christen the dancefloor with their age old classics and some old samples of hip-hop, breaks, jazz, and spoken word. They began working together in the mid 80′s, shortly thereafter they released their first single, “Say Kids, What Time Is It?”, marking the first stirs in UK dance/cutup culture. This has been followed with their influential remix of Eric B. & Rakim’s “Paid in Full,” which made the top 10 and was voted best remix of the year.
And to top it off, we have our talented resident DJs ADO8, Linfeng to start and finish off the night.
This will be the last party to hit Arkham for the year – so come for one last vicious night before a whole slew of parties for the next year!
Coldcut成军近三十年是前卫电子界真正的传奇。第一张"单曲“Say Kids, What Time is It?”大受欢迎并宣告Coldcut正式登场。 他们真正的成功始于受邀为Eric B. & Rakim的“Paid in Full”所作remix，展现超前意识割裂人声构建loop，为breakbeat风格奠基。“Doctorin' the House”成功打入UK榜Top10。“What's the Noise?”获得了银唱片销量。主理“Journeys By DJ”系列第8辑更是被誉为史上最佳合辑。
Coldcut自设的伦敦独立音乐厂牌Ninja Tune成立于1990年，主攻Hip Hop和Breakbeat风格，成为日后电音界标杆性大厂。在Coldcut 的带领下，以搞怪、偏锋、多元、高技术含量的风格著称，更是近十几年来 Trip-Hop、Big Beats、 Ambient、Cut&Paste和 Live Audiovisual文化等潮流的主要推手。
