tokyo techno spring

well, it sure looks like i hit tokyo at the right time... last weekend i caught lerosa drop a couple of hours of lovely deep house beats. and that was just the start of a busy month in tokyo. so, if you happen to be about, i'd suggest coming along to these parties. i'll planning on hitting them all:

sat 13 march: delta funktionen @ module: 2nd week in a row a ssg artist will be making their debut in tokyo. nice one!
sun 14 march: mika vainio, rashad becker, NHK @ soup: bring the noise!
tues 16 march: mika vainio, rashad becker, NHK @ superdeluxe: a 2nd serving. perfect.
fri 26 march: shackleton @ module: got a bad feeling this one is going to be overcrowded, but still super excited about this.
sat 27 march: levon vincent, terre thaemlitz @ womb: i love levon & terre more than i hate womb. i think.

put that all together and you've got a really good month of music. for a while i was feeling a bit despondent with the scene in tokyo, but this year it really feels like things are picking up. lets hope this month is a sign of things to come. now that i'm based here, will try to do more posts on upcoming parties in tokyo, as well as reports on some of the artists i catch. pump!


  1. That's a great pic. Shackleton sounds very enticing.

  2. have a good time / life in tokyo chris!

  3. Aaargh! and I'll be in Tokyo only in April, Easter weekend and the one after.
    But maybe I'm lucky and March will "just" be a warm-up month... ;)
    Enjoy the parties!

  4. That's an amazing pic. The sharpness / focus on the chrome railing is tops.
