hip hop clubs in japan 2005/6/16 06:51
Hi, a friend and I are visiting japan from september 8-12, 2006. We are both hip hop/techno Djs and we wanted to know how to submit demo cds to come dj out there. I am not familiar with all of the clubs out there as well but I've heard the scene out there is very good.

Some clubs in Tokyo 2005/7/29 01:53
Some of the clubs I`ve been to are:

Bed (Ikebukuro) - a good club but they have a lot of live perforamances for unknown and/or underground J-R&B, hip-hop and dance acts. This isn`t really a bad thing, but if you`re really into dancing this cuts into that.

Harlem (Shibuya) - This is a famous club because of the DJs and the infamous "no foreigner" policy, but it seems that this policy isn`t as enforced as it used to be. I`ve been there a few times. The DJs are great but the club is a bit pricey

Nuts (Shibuya) - Another famous club with famous DJs. I really like this club. It`s not as big as Harlem but I find the atmosphere to be friendlier. I go to this club often

Unity (Shibuya) a new club. A lot of famous DJs spin here on occasion.

Vuenos (Shibuya) - it`s an okay club. I`ve only been here once.

Ageha (Shin-kiba) - this club is outside Tokyo but not too hard to get too (I think there`s free bus from Shibuya that takes you there...I usually go by train from Ikebukuro) It`s a HUGE (but pricey) club that plays hip-hop, reggae, and techno in different rooms. They have famous local and international DJs here.

Nature (Roppongi) - I don`t care too much for clubs in Roppongi, but I thought this club was decent. Had good DJs and a nice atmosphere.

Thanks Banna for the list.

Guess I'll be trying a few clubs this weekend.

Do the trains run late or is it better to take taxi?

I'm a university student, studying in Tokyo from Leeds, England. Hiphop is my main genre of music and like to dabble in a bit of Drum 'n' Bass too. Few questions for this forum:

Firstly, I am sick (as i'm sure a lot are) of this wave of fake gangsta hiphop that seems to be intesifying globally, where the criteria is bling and spinning rims: hmmmmm. I like hiphop with dynamic lyricism and wholesome production and need to find clubs around Tokyo that offer this. Just like all big cities there must be clubs that bang out the best that Hiphop has to offer. Could somebody advise me of the clubs that play great hiphop such as Jedi Mind Tricks, Big L, Tribe Called Quest, Non Phixtion, Wu Tang Family, Madvillian etc. This type of wave isn't extremely common but when places play music on this level great nights are always had. Any takers??

Secondly, when I lived in Tokyo in 1996-2000, Drum 'n' Bass had a subsatial foothold in the Dance scene, never as much as Trance or Hard House but places still put out Blackmarket, LTJ Bukem etc.. what's the D & B scene like these days???

Lastly, back to the Hiphop branch, do people follow British Hiphop in Tokyo? Britain's Hiphop scene has yet to be whole-heartedly discovered (probably what makes it great) and I would like to put a night on in Tokyo for the scene to hear, I guarantee if the right people hear, they will love!! Any thoughts??

Appreciate any people that would like to take the time to answer my questions, and apologies for the lengthy post, music is my life and as i'm here for 10 months it would be great to get some integral Hiphop in this phat city!! Cheers

Hey Chica.. 2005/10/5 18:43
Never really do this forum thing and took a chance!! Thanks for your reply: Yeah i'm in Tokyo, i'll be here for 10 months, and live about 30 mins from Shinjuku. Went out in Shibuya last night and the hiphop was flowing and actually quite good, DJ Krush featured heavily as expected. Come to Tokyo!! I'm sure there is something for everyone including Jungle heads which I from time to time am! Do ou know the scene in Tokyo at all? Are you in Japan?

hey 2006/2/14 10:29
Hi, I will be in Tokyo April 4-14 and I really want to meet some people who could show me the hip hop scene and the clubs in Tokyo. I am into most hip hop but mainly stuff like Gang Starr/DJ Premier and all that real stuff. I am 19 and I will be on my own by the way. Club Harlem looked alright, but the no foreigner policy sucks. Talk about racist.

what's up 2006/4/17 12:47
I'm also a DJ living in California. I want to move to Japan, but it seems hard to make it out there. i spin mostly progressive house and trance.

What clubs do you spin at or which ones do you go to frequently. I do have a few connections depending on where your going in Japan, but its not as hard as California to get into the business. House and trance are steadily rising here, and from what I have seen from a lot of the local talent, if your below my level or even better than me, not saying im great or anything, but you should have no problem getting into the business.
