The official details, from the horse's mouth, are thus:
Modernsky Lab will have two studio spaces dedicated to individual projects by musicians and artists, adjoining a larger stage area for bigger performances. The Galaxy Soho shop is scheduled to open at the end of April, but they've already inked deals for Modernsky Labs in Chengdu and Shanghai, and plan to have these running in 20 cities within three years. Holy hell.
Here are some snaps of the Beijing station:
The unofficial word on the street is: Modern Sky has already begun assembling artists to fill out the program at the new space, digging into their deep archive of internal label affiliates, and poaching talent from succsessful clubs outside their immediate orbit.
Modern Sky has a lot of capital to throw around, and with the distinct possibility that Strawberry Festival — another MS property — won't be happening this year, it's a safe bet they're gonna try to hit the ground running with this new venture.
As always, stay tuned to SmBJ for the latest underground streams.
