Originally from North Carolina, USA, TUKO has been performing in China for over 6 years. TUKO creates a unique sun-inspired journey of house, tech, and world music bound together with melodic guitar riffs, traditional vocals, and live drums floating above heavy bass lines.
Originally from the U.S., Lev Zep has been based in Asia for the last 7 years with a focus on music and events management in the greater China region. As a DJ he’s played hundreds of shows in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Nanjing, Qingdao, Urumqi, Hangzhou, Ho Chi Minh and many more…Whether he’s playing live with his custom MIDI setup or rocking the decks with his unique blends and mash ups, you can definitely always expect some sexy bass and grooves from Zep!
Hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the U.S., Nathan Power(a.k.a. Nasty Nate a.k.a. Another Pawn) spent much of his teenage and young adult life partying in neighboring Detroit and Chicago’s legendary electronic music scenes. Influenced by artists such as Richie Hawtin, Green Velvet, Dan Bell, and Carl Craig, Nate began yearning to create the same emotionally intense sonic landscapes that he and other party-goers experienced when attending their shows, and so he began to learn how to DJ.
As his experience grew, his horizons expanded, and today-more than a decade after he embarked on his journey- Nasty Nate brings an eclectic, distilled, and intense blend of techno, house, and everything in between to the stage. A zealous purist, Nate is constantly on a mission toeducate listeners and expose them to truly underground dance music. He isn’t flashy; he doesn’t rely on pyro technics or good looks to impress his audience; he lets his carefully selected tracks do all the talking.
James Lealand is known for being able to turn his hand to nearly any style, playing Bass, House, Techno and DnB all over Shanghai, he is once again joining Adrenaland Burners to spin another set!
Poetry & sounds of freedom are driving Pedro’s style and lyrics. Peace, Love & Unity remain key messages shared through his creations. Expect to discover more at this Dragon Burn Decompression.
If this don’t make your booty move… your booty must be dead. Make like a shepherd and get the flock over to Mansion for the Dragon Burn Decompression!
