From the organizer:
You are invited to a music night with 4 impressive figures of the Japanese underground music scene, for the first time in Hanoi, together with MC Scars from France, and DJ set.
BASED ON KYOTO (BOK) is a Japanese dance music unit consisting of DAICHI, a DJ and producer, and MARRON, a guitarist for DUBDUB ON-SENG, Dubmarronics and Datenryu. BOK was formed in 2006 to search and create a groove that incorporates a very unique Japanese dynamic with a variety of other musical genres such as house, electro, ambient, dub, soul, jazz and rock. They’ve so far released four 12 inches and LPs.
Performing all over Japan, especially in Kyoto and Osaka, their name is well known in their home country’s vibrant electronic scene. They have performed alongside top artists including Theo Parrish, Idjut Boys, Filastine, Hifana, Juzu aka Moochy, A Hundred Birds, Kuniyuki, Kentaro Iwaki, Altz and Sayoko. Their track “Flower” was also added to the compilation album “4 Season” (2007) and later released in 12-inch vinyl, becoming an underground hit in the Japanese club scene.
“Flower” was also highly acclaimed overseas and Giles Peterson played the track for his world-renowned “Worldwide” programme onBBC Radio 1. BOK has just released a remix of the cross-genre hit “Calypso On-Seng” by Dubdub On-Seng this autumn.
MC Scars, a reggae MC from France, will tear up the floor!
Ticket prices: 80,000 VND advance ticket, 120,000 VND on the door.
