Mook opened with a bang and was temporarily closed by the cops for a noise citation. This new electronic music oasis has some sturdy foundations with their visual effects designed by Visual Drugstore and a sound system put together by Meyer.
MOOK Shanghai brings a new wave of night life experience to the Shanghai scene.
The MOOK interior reflects modern, dynamic city life style and is complemented by a unique 3D mapping structural installation above the stage and dance floor, created by leading visual artistes from Germany, The Visual Drugstore.
The Visual Drugstore represents the creative vision of visual artiste Markos Kern, the German creative company specialises in bespoke 3D mapping projects, they create environments for night clubs and festival all over Europe, notably the famous German festival Timewarp, as well as undertaking art projects, using their massive projection trucks to carry out guerrilla mapping events on iconic buildings and locations.
For MOOK they have created a unique structure that will feature a bespoke visual mapping show. The structure will grow and develop as the life of Mook itself grows with elements being added, moved and changed to reflect the changing nature of the night life experience.
The Mook sound system is another first for Shanghai, bringing the same Meyer Sound system that reverberates around the legendary Berlin night club, Berghein Panorama Bar.
Mook music is directed by UK party specialists Godskitchen. Those who have been in Shanghai for a while will remember the musical madness that GK curated at the defunct Bonbon club, who's reputation for delivering the best music in the city could never be doubted. Mook has invited Godskitchen to bring their global music experience to Shanghai again.
Godskitchen itself will throw regular GK party's at Mook on Friday nights, bringing a combination of the hottest international DJs along side some of Shanghai's own favourite DJs.
Mook weekly schedule will feature a mix-mash of up front party vibes, with a policy firmly rooted in the local night life culture, but delivered with an appreciation of international standards.
Aiming to combine the best of local and international clubbing experiences, Mook aims to deliver a contemporary assault on the senses.
