Mau Mau (Medusa)
Mau Mau is a Shanghai-based DJ and nightlife organizer, co-founder of Elevator, the city's home for the city's underground music and queer scenes, and MEDUSA, one of Shanghai's longest-running monthly queer parties and record labels. More importantly, he's an enthusiastic amateur dancer and an obsessive fan of the sounds and the people who move him.
Mau Mau DJs because of mind-melting experiences he's had on the dancefloor. For fifteen years, he's studied techniques to provoke collective ecstasy—sequencing and blending percussive house, dubby techno, and psychedelic tones with snatches of fierce vocals in ways that make heads spin and feet freak out. Given a decent sound system, he will light the room on fire.
