Thursday 27th June @ Lola: Rodriguez Jr

HOLLY SH*T and Lola Shanghai (570 Yongjia road by Yueyang road) are bringing to Shanghai one of the big name of Mobilee records: Rodriguez Jr aka Olivier Mateu.

French DJ and music producer, Rodriguez Jr is well-known for his outstanding 100% Live electronic show that he has performed extensively
throughout America and Europe in festivals and clubs such as Sonar Off in Barcelona, Tomorrowland in Belgium, ADE in Amsterdam, Showcase in Paris or Watergate in Berlin.

Before being Rodriguez Jr, Olivier Mateu was part of the French electro act The Youngsters, best known for their 2 studio albums and singles for Laurent Garnier’s F-communications. The Youngsters’ award-wining productions catapulted them into the international arena, taking Olivier Mateu to some of the biggest clubs and festivals around the world.

Rodriguez Jr definitely reveals a different incarnation of Olivier Mateu’s musical psyche. For a solid 10 hours a day, Rodriguez Jr creates music in his Mlab Mk5 studio using vintage synthesizers, keyboards and dusty analog gear. The result is a incredible music moving through shimmering contemplative electronica to deep and urgent techno, left-field melodic accents and quirky pop refrains. After his first album, “Bittersweet” came out on mobilee in 2011, Rodriguez Jr. became the fastest growing name on the imprint to boot.

And when he’s not in studio, this ambitious French producer is traveling around to fill up festival stages, blow up rooftop parties or crank out solid live sets on the international club circuit. And that’s what is gonna do on Thursday June the 27th at Lola, supported by Charp and Thoma Cher, an act definitely not to be missed by the Shanghai music lovers.
