Tokyo ON In The Mix: Welcome to Tokyo
Maction Planet is all about being inspired by Tokyo. You can see that inspiration in our tours and t-shirts. This special edition of Maction Planet’s flagship radio show ‘Tokyo ON’ embodies this philosophy to perfection, as we hand over the decks to Guest DJ Fodj for an exclusive ‘Welcome to Tokyo’ mix.
Fodj is a former Tokyo resident and Maction Planet guest. A labelmate of Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong, he is an artiste extraordinaire, and gifted ping pong player. Who better to describe what he has come up with than the man himself. Take it away Fodj!:
“This is my attempt to capture the experience of arriving in and exploring Tokyo, not necessarily for the first time; a splash of culture, quirk and overwhelming-ness, parties, anime student running montages, chill bars, confusion and a little sadness, and a satisfying finale. The tracks were intentionally selected to be a little older. Please use the above flow as a guide: sit back, sip an umeshu, and enjoy!”
Maction Planet runs Tokyo Music Tours, which we brand “Maction Planet Radio Tours”, introducing people to the varied and diverse range of music in The World’s Greatest Metropolis. Tokyo’s music scene can be difficult to crack for visitors, 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.
Like everything at Maction Planet, your Tokyo Music Tour can be fully-customised around the rest of your time touring The World’s Greatest Metropolis. Click here for one example – Cherry Blossom viewing followed by an amazing gig from Tokyo Discotheque Orchestra.
