Asian Vibes presents China Debut special edition with Italian Double Headliner! Marco Effe [Prism | Cocoon Rec | Connaisseur] & Berny [ Zoo:Technique | Nite Grooves | Save Room Rec ] – both from Italy, but work with different labels. Please notice that we invited TWO GUEST DJs instead of a duo, and it happened to be two Italian! The probability of this situation happens in Shanghai is like lunar eclipse occurs in China! Both of them are favored by international big names like Richie Hawtin soon after they began their DJ career. Numerous hits were released under top labels in the world. They are unstoppable! Asian Vibes gather the two talents in one night, with distinctive Italian flavored tech-house/techno. Undoubtedly a crazy night!

Marco Effe
Born and raised in Livorno in 1985, Marco Effe is considered to be one of the most promising Italian talents. Within an extremely short time span, Marco is rising up and managed to achieve worldwide recognition. Marco began to compose his own music in 2007 and released “Wet June EP” in November 2008. His first output gave him immediate recognition and was a great success! 2010 he does it again, the “Malaysia/Muar EP” (one of his EP’s numerously played by Richie Hawtin in that year) once again made its impact and influenced the entire global club scene. This
landmark release found its home on Break New Soil, Gregor Tresher’s marvelous label. In spring 2010 he returns with a new release “Janet” on the album “Cecille Italy”. His ensuing “From Kalida To Hyden EP” published on Dubfire’s brilliant label “Sci+Tec” is an elegant musical journey into sonority.

Marco Effe moved to Berlin in 2011 and a year later he releases “Jellied Eels” on Cocoon’s Dots & Pearls 2” It’s easy to hear why this has been sitting in the sets of Sven Vath and Luciano for some time. Marco Effe is also part of “Raw Verse” a new alias he uses to produce special tracks receiving recognition worldwide. Marco is by now without a doubt a young and extremely ambitious artist, who can already put a check mark behind most of the top ranking events and clubs in Europe, such as Studio 80 Amsterdam, Sankeys Manchester, Watergate Berlin, Harry Klein Munich and many more.


Berny first came into the public domain with his smash hit “Shplatten” in 2010 on Aenaria Recordings. The track rocked all clubs and festivals around the world thanks to the support of Richie Hawtin and Marco Carola and gave Berny a well-deserved international reputation together with a long permanence on Beatport Top 20!

2013 saw his first and long anticipated 12 tracks LP “Central Park” produced by Italian Deep House kings Harley & Muscle and supported by Jimpster, Larry Heard, Kyodai, Andre Lodemann, Mousse T ,Rainer Truby and many others. A European tour starting from Weekend Club in Berlin on April 2013 signed first part of the year touching Germany, Greece and Holland.

Back in studio after summer 2013, his remix for Oded Nir on Suntree Recordings of the track “Late Night Flight”, positioned #1 on Traxsource Nu Disco/Indie Dance and #9 on Main Chart. Latest Berny’s gigs included his 2014 Japan tour and Berlin tour. For 2015, Berny’s journey goes on…


Charp (Holly Sh*t/FR)
Part of the Shanghai electronic scene since 2008, Charp built himself a name by playing and making parties in all underground places in town. (Shelter, Amber, Mao Livehouse…). He shared the decks with the international DJs on Shanghai biggest stages (Boys Noize, Paul Kalkbrenner, Fritz Kalkbrenner, Felix Da Housecat, Paul Ritch, Okain, Azari & III, Michael Mayer, Cassius, Ramon Tapia) to name a few.

Max Shen (Molly House/SH)
Started djing at the age of 18, Max became active in Shanghai clubs since 2001 with his obsession of 4/4 rhythm dance music. He has been playing alongside with many international DJs. At the mean time Max is also an event planner, who founded party brand “ZOO” with Ssoso and created “The Big Shot” with LinFeng.

Yoshinaga (Asian Vibes/JP)
Activated as a guitarist of Rock band in Tokyo in 90s, created many rock songs and published CDs from private label. Moved to Shanghai in 2003 and started djing since 2006. In 2011 founded the party brand “Asian Vibes” and became active in Shanghai scene with his unique Japanese style house/techno.
