Skinny Brown his the decks for another epic 8 hour set with stacks of music spanning genres and continents, all built for the dancehall.

Skinny Brown is the DJ and promoter who started the Popasuda dance parties at Dada Shanghai back in 2011. Popasuda means "booty" in Portuguese, one of many languages you'll hear at the night. You won't hear any English lyrics though. Skinny Brown strictly plays "global bass" jams coming from cheap computers in the Caribbean, Sub-Saharan Africa, Indian, and beyond. He has the cred to do a night like this too – dude's background is more mixed than the tunes, he speaks seven languages, and has lived everywhere from Canada and Pakistan to Jamaica and Japan.
