1)    Hip Hop Hijack

The Party

Hip Hop Hijack was the first creation of The Council Entertainment due to the outright lack of real Hip Hop music in venues around Shanghai.  The goal was simple, to bring Urban music and culture back to Shanghai and prove that urban culture is a profitable commodity in China. After 1 year we are definitely on our way to achieve these goals and more.  The party itself has created such a buzz that Hip Hop Hijack is now a permanent fixture in one of Shanghai’s biggest club Zeal. Special guests have included: ITF World Champion DJ Rob Bankz, Japan’s Heavy Hitter DJ Lead, Eminem tour DJ Green Lantern, etc.

The Website

The website is an aggregator of urban culture news, music, videos and fashion all over the world.

C-Real: 

Cyril aka C-Real arrived in Beijing in 2005 for a student exchange program studying engineering.  After 2 years at Beijing University of Technology and graduating with a bachelor degree, he started working as a freelance engineer and organizing nightlife events in his free time. Over the next years he was in Beijing, he achieved a high-level of fluency in Chinese and by doing so he created a robust network of contacts throughout the Capital.

A new job opportunity in an IT company in 2008 saw him move to Shanghai, where his outgoing personality  and fluency in Chinese quickly saw him become the PR manager for one of Shanghai’s biggest events and  Nightlife companies. This gave him the chance to meet and set up a network of clubs managers, social lights,  trendsetters, Deejays, Performers and local party animals. During the next 2 years in the IT Company, Cyril realized his heart was leading him in a different path. This lead him to help create a business partnership with  DJ Choyce Kutz and DJ B-Kut called The Council Entertainment. Today, he is a leading figure in the vast Shanghai nightlife scene, a true trendsetter, and still a sneaker head.
