STD presents: Yung Lean – 10th Anniversary/Halloween Party
10 years ago, STD sought out to bring the best of avant-garde, underground music to China – since then, we have brought the likes of Flying Lotus, Anderson .Paak, ZHU, among many other to performs on China’s global stage. 10 after its founding, STD continues to be the leader in bringing quality music to China and throwing some of its most enthralling parties.
Headlining the show will be king of the youth and pioneer in millennial culture, Young Lean, alongside “The Rap of China” contestant Benzo. We will update you as we continue to add exciting names to our 10th Anniversary roster. This year, S.T.D. will be holding it down at in the underground (literally) venue Arkham at No. 168 Julu Lu, transforming it to a high-speed spacecraft that will thrust you into the future! It doesn’t matter if you’re a zombie crawling out of the ground or an extraterrestrial from some Hollywood movie, fly with us this Halloween to another world.
The tale of Yung Lean is as unassuming as it is wildly exploratory, a contradictory narrative about a misfit stranger from Stockholm who became a worldwide phenomenon.
Still merely 21 years of age, the past year was huge for Yung Lean; besides kicking off with the independently released, eclectic album“Warlord” and embarking on a sold-out world tour, it also saw him featured on Frank Ocean´s “Blonde”, star in Calvin Klein´s #mycalvins campaign, launch his own Sadboys Gear brand, co-design a sneaker for Eytys and drop a full length punk album together with GUD as Död Mark – to name a few highlights.
Later this year, Yung Lean will write the next chapter of the story by releasing his 3rd studio album project, followed by an extensive world tour.
The native Chinese hip-hop rapper graduated from one of the top art academies- China Academy of Fine Arts. In a subsequent battle in the “The Rap of China” television show, he came out on top of his famous hip-hop predecessor, placing 3rd in Panweibo’s Group and 9th in the entire country. He released his single “Bibble Fashion Bible” in August.
Presale is out now, first-come-first-serve basis. More names will be announced, so stay tuned to our Wechat (STDparty) as we continue to post updates.
