Last night was the 7th installment of Back To Chill, and once more it was a proper skankin and pleasurable affair. Good crowd, good people, good sound, good food (the food was so good, it sold out last night! Big up the curry lady, it sorted me out and it was lush) and good vibes all round. As I said before the night is definitely growing in popularity with every occasion and it showed last night, with a packed dancefloor.
Music wise it was good too, with guest DJ Quarta330 dropping a heavy set (see below for some audio) and the residents coming in good too. Ske played b2b with Hyaku Mado and I played b2b with Goth Trad and it was fuckin dope. Thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to more of the same next month. There was also an MC who got on the mic during Ske and Hyaku Mado’s set and dropped some lyrics in Japanese, which was nice and went down well too.
The next big night is in two weeks, with Mala Mystikz, Doc Scott and Goth Trad playing the main room in Unit and the BTC crew handling the downstairs room. You know it’s gonna be heavy, and it’s looking like Kode 9 might also be putting in an appearance in Tokyo over the summer, which should be dope. All in all it’s definitely shaping up to be an interesting year for the music in Japan.
Didn’t take any pictures this time, but the guys did and you can check a little gallery over at the BTC Blog.
I managed to get some audio of the night, though my laptop packed it in halfway through my set with Goth Trad Next time i’ll have to remember to bring a power plug! Click on the audio player below to listen to Quarta330′s set and about 50 mins of Goth Trad and myself b2b. You can find out more on Quarta330 (and hear his excellent remix of Kode9′s ’9 Samurai’) on his myspace page.
Next BTC is on the 5th of April!
