Tokyo Dance Music Event, Japan’s premier conference event dedicated to the electronic music industry taking place in the district of Shibuya in Tokyo, has just announced its return – from November 30th to December 2nd. The multifaceted event will once again celebrate the pillars of the dance music world – production, performance and club culture – through a selection of panel and workshop programming during the day and a line-up of sessions and performances from international brands and artists by night.
Topping the bill is a worldwide exclusive from techno pioneer Jeff Mills, who will bring his first original ‘Planets‘ installation to TDME, at Hikarie Hall B.
“I’m very excited that the Tokyo Dance Music Event will host the world premiere of my immersive installation that allows listeners to experience the Planets soundtrack. It marks another step forward of the on-going evolution of the observation of the nine planets in our Solar System.” says Mills.
Dutch imprint Spinnin’ Records will present its ‘Spinnin’ Sessions‘ to Japan for the very first time including a set from EDX at Hikarie Hall A on Friday night.
Tokyo’s seminal Club WOMB will be hosting two parties, featuring the legendary Mute Records founder, Daniel Miller joined by Japanese DJ Takkyu Ishino.
Enlisted to discuss and debate a variety of topical panel themes, the speaker program consists of influential industry figures from across the globe, while Ableton will host a meet-up focusing on the theme of “Fusing real instruments and electronics” with participation from critically acclaimed electro pop star, De De Mouse and Monjoe from the indie band Yayhel.
TDME will also host a warm up party at Amsterdam Dance Event this Friday 20th October at Melkweg, named KODO – meaning heart-beat or pulse – with sets from cult Japanese talents, DJ NOBU, Satoshi Otsuki and SO.
