First Live shows of the year

Happy New Year! All the best for 2009.

Kicking off this year’s round of live shows with two events coming up on the weekend of January 24th/25th 2009.

First is Ignite at Club Module in Shibuya on Saturday the 24th.

I am, once again, thrilled to be playing on the same bill as the legendary DJ Wada, a truly gifted and pioneering Techno spirit who is now resident DJ for Ignite.

Also on the bill as Guest DJ is Tokyo’s own Satoshi Endo rounding off a formidable techno lineup and making this one local event not to be missed.

Module is my favourite club in Tokyo and when I make tracks I imagine them for this space. I love doing shows here, powerful sound system and an intimacy on the dancefloor missing from most of the bigger clubs.

I cannot wait.

The next day, Sunday the 25th I am doing a show early evening at Secobar in Shibuya at a party called Atrip, this event is slightly more experimental in nature and I will be playing a mixture of my techno productions and a few tracks that lean more toward abstraction and broken beats.

There will be food , live paintings and performances to supplement the music.
