Tokyo ON In the Mix: Soul in the House
Tokyo ON goes In the Mix once again bringing some soul to your house!
Soulful house is a genre of music characterized by club beats, lush arrangements (think strings, flutes, melodic basslines, bongos…) and of course strong vocals that project warmth and emotion. Despite its relatively lower profile worldwide, the genre continues to have a substantial following in Japan.
Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong pays tribute to the genre’s legacy here with a soulful house mix of tracks that have a Japanese connection, featuring artists such as MONDO GROSSO, Satoshi Tomiie, Studio Apartment, Namy and AK.
Set your soul free with the sonorous rhythms of Tokyo ON In the Mix!

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.
