taken from where next?
just a quick post about some good parties coming up in tokyo over the next month or so. NYE is looking surprisingly quiet, but that's fine, as there are some other cool events happening.
first up, tonight (tues 7th) stewart walker is making a surprise appearance at dommune. nice one. walker is someone who i've been wanting to see since the late 90s, but i have always missed. glad that will finally be rectified! if you want to come tonight, you can register here, otherwise tune in at 9PM japan time. and on friday night jack sparrow is playing the next basement ltd. party at module, which should be interesting.
this weekend also sees the return of a good friend of the ssgs, mike parker, who is playing at the next mariana party on saturday 11th at warehouse702. along side him will be two other ssg favourites, iori and c_olvrin. i'm really looking forward to this. i was lucky enough to see mike play a private party earlier this year, and it was one of the best sets of techno i have heard in 2010. it had his usual driving intensity, but it was deeper and trippier than what i had previously heard from him. very excited to see what he comes up with this weekend... mariana has big december planned, as they are also bringing ben klock to play christmas night, again at warehouse702. full info on both the mariana parties here.
but the one to get really excited for is 8th january... mindgames, the crew behind labyrinth, are bringing sandwell district to tokyo. regis and function at unit, all night long. it is very rare for mindgames to do a club party (the last one was a few years ago), so this is definitely something to put in your diaries. quality sound and production is guaranteed, and with sandwell district on board, you can be assured there will be a night of awesome music. super excited for this. it has been a while since regis was last here, and this will be the debut of sandwell district in japan. good timing too, as their new album feed forward is finally about to drop. some details here and we'll have more info closer to the night.
the sandwell district party should kick off a strong january in tokyo (including some nice looking gigs at eleven), and we are now looking at organising the first MNML SSGS party here in tokyo for 2011... so plenty to look forward to!
