Tokyo ON #033: Denki Boogaloo
In advance of his Tokyo live DJing debut, Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong plays a selection of cutting edge sounds spanning RnB, soul, funk and more with music from Juju, UNCHAIN, She’s and Riri and Maction Planet favourites iri and BRADIO. As always the tracks are accompanied by Royce’s knowledgeable commentary on the songs, the artists and life in the World’s Greatest Metropolis.
All the tunes guaranteed are to get you grooving and form the perfect warm up set for when you come and catch Royce live at Silent Sky Fes Disco Night on Friday 16 March 2018. Full details and tickets here.
Our tour guests, listeners to Maction Planet Radio and readers of our blog know that one of our many goals is to open up Tokyo’s diverse music culture to visitors. This can be difficult to crack due to the language barrier and the sheer breadth and depth of the scene. Concerts, gigs, club nights across every conceivable genre, homegrown, traditional, modern and internationally-influenced… the variety is outstanding. In most cases there is no English-language information available for these amazing events, and that is where we can help.
We run Tokyo Music Tours, which we brand “Maction Planet Radio Tours”, introducing people to the varied range of music in this amazing city. Like everything we do, your Tokyo Music Tour can be fully customised around the rest of your time touring The World’s Greatest Metropolis.
Some examples include:
- Cherry Blossom viewing followed by an amazing gig from Tokyo Discotheque Orchestra.
- Craft beer, the legacy of the zaibatsu, a cloudy architecture tour from on high, amazing ramen and thumping house music… all in one four hour tour of Tokyo.
- Hotel Koe’s opening party – only 80 premium tickets available – attended after an 8-hour tour of the ins and outs of the western Tokyo.
