Tokyo ON #045: Everything Old is New Again
Maction Planet Radio returns with another episode of their flagship show, Tokyo ON! This time, everything old is new again!
Cassette tapes, boom boxes, pop colors, recording in mono – everything old is new again in the World’s Greatest Metropolis!
This episode, Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong shows you what Group Sounds, classic anime theme songs, rockabilly and city pop sound like in 2018 with new tracks from Soleil, The Learners, Toki Asako and more. And if that’s not enough, Royce even shows you the future of Japanese music as well! Any genre, any era… if it’s good music, it’s here on 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, where everything old is new again!
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.
