Road to East

Tokyo Chill // 1215-1310 23.12.12

road to east

Adopting a pseudonym in tribute to his Japanese ancestry and naming his latest album Lineage, Shigeto is one of many artists in the burgeoning electronic scene of America who is creatively inspired by the nature of heritage within the context of a foreign culture. Being concerned with tracing both the residue of Japanese aesthetic values on the work of emigrant musicians and the influence of Japanese experimental music on Western artists, I felt that Evenings' remix of Shigeto would be a perfect tune with which to inaugurate Tokyo Chill.

This first show will cover a lot of ground, drawing on instrumental Hip-Hop, Techno, Dubstep from Georgia, chopped-up samples, jazz-soaked Rap, piano loops, Canadian vocalists and Ambient, as I attempt to illustrate the wide variety of innovative experimental music that is being produced by artists of Japanese descent and the positive effects that this state of widespread cultural creativity is having on Western electronic music. With so many genres spliced together it could be cool, could be a disaster, could be both. Tune in and find out!
