2013 was a good year for electronic music in Tokyo. A decent stream of quality names passed through: Shackleton, Drexciyan DJ Stingray, Machinedrum, LFO and OM Unit to name but a few – not to mention u-ziq rounding things off at the RBMA Weekender at the end of the year.
2014 is shaping up to be just as good, with the announcement that this year’s Red Bull Music Academy will be taking place in Tokyo in October. Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke and Space Dimension Controller are all graduates from previous academies, and if the other years are anything to go by, Tokyo can look forward to some serious music this autumn.
To coincide with the event I’m hoping to host a number of exclusive youtube sessions throughout the year with some of the best names in electronic music right here on this blog. Big names. If it all comes together it should be pretty special. Watch this space.
