Adjust font size:

Tomorrow night Godskitchen Worldwide proudly presents M.A.N.D.Y. in a very special GK Christmas Angel Party at Club Bonbon, Shanghai.

This kicks off an entire week of nonstop holiday festivities with M.A.N.D.Y the co-owners of the hugely successful record label Get Physical Music.

The Berlin-based duo is the brainchild of Philipp David Jung and Patrick Bodmer, who formed M.A.N.D.Y. in 2000 and have since been responsible for producing massive anthems like "Body Language" with labelmate Booka Shade.

Their self-titled mix album was recently voted No. 1 compilation of the year.

Their current tour of Asia takes them to Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo in support of their forthcoming mix CD Fabric 38 released on the London super club Fabric's record label.

In 2002, M.A.N.D.Y. and Booka Shade moved to Berlin seeking a new creative kick.

What they found was a confluence of artists and ideas, and a constant shower of music that washed over and immersed them.

It was productive, intense and satisfying.

Living and working together, their strong relationship provided the perfect foundation for future growth.

Since the creation of the label, M.A.N.D.Y. have come into their own as artists and DJs.

Their natural easy friendship allowed their skills to gradually flourish and their heartfelt excitement for what they do ignites every floor.

Mixing the first "Get Physical" label compilation in 2004 sent their sound beyond Europe and they were sought after as remixers working with artists as diverse as The Knife, Seelenluft, the Sugababes, Hans Peter Lindstrom and Fisherspooner.

The Godskitchen Angel Party is a monthly event showcasing some of the most captivating acts in electronic dance music today.
Previous performances by leading DJs and producers from around the globe including co-owner of Get Physical Music DJ T, and sold out performances by recording mavericks Richie Hawtin, Roger Sanchez, Erick Morillo and groundbreaking acts like Claude Vonstroke, Simian Mobile Disco and 2manyDJs have made the GK Angel Party the not-to-miss Friday event of the month.

This special Christmas edition is no exception and is complete with special dancers, decorations and fireworks, as well as some limited Godskitchen gifts and giveaways.

Saturday see the Beach Honey monthly final and a hot blast of summer fun. A Grand Prize of 200,000 yuan (US$27,300) cash and a brand-new car will be awarded at the grand finals in August 2008.

On Sunday the Bonbon Bunch Christmas Preview is a warm-up, all night open bar party featuring the hip-hop and electro residents in a tag team rotation.

Monday is Winter Fantasy, a Nutcracker Christmas costume party. Christmas Eve marks the special costume and mask party event at Club Bonbon with special winter white-out decorations and a midnight Christmas cracker fireworks display.

Tuesday is the Merry Christmas Mash Up. A special Christmas Day edition of Bonbon's Mash Up night where hip hop, Hyphy, Dirty South crunk classics are all rolled into the mix. Say hi to Kris Kringle at the all night open bar.

Wednesday is Addicted to Turkey! Got stuffed over the holidays? The Bonbon Boxing Day Party is your chance to work off some of those extra kilos to uptempo electro and progressive tracks.

The Christmas Party Series continues non-stop, each night right through to New Years Eve with a special Celebrate 2008 allnight with the UK's redlight partiers The Hoxton Wh$res ushering in the New year in an all out, open bar, fireworks bash.

This will be the perfect wrap up of two incredible years of music and open bar madness at Club Bonbon, Shanghai.

Looking ahead to the start of 2008, Brazilian drum and bass superstar DJ Marky, Cocoon founder and techno shaman Sven Vath, and Return to New York with Afrika Bambaataa's original producer DJ Arthur Baker, all appear in January!
