Tokyo ON #41: Motto Hotto with songs from Natsu Summer and more

Tokyo ON #041: Motto Hotto

ROYCE IS BACK! That’s right, Maction Planet Radio’s Resident DJ returns to help us handle the heat! 

Atsui neeeee! It’s now the height of summer in the World’s Greatest Metropolis, bringing with it the hottest day ever recorded in Japan! So, why not stay cool and chill out with a selection of summer tracks put together by Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong for Tokyo ON?

As the temperature rises, Royce muses about the summer theatrics, while playing hot tracks (pun intended) from a former gravure model (Ogura Yuko), a girls hip hop idol group (Lyrical School), someone whose name means summer summer (Natsu Summer) and more!

Sit back, grab a drink with sodium added to it, and try to beat the heat this summer together with Tokyo ON.

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:
