Move D is a man who should need little introduction to the BMP. Great singles released on Workshop, Uzuri, Running Back, the classic ‘Songs from The Beehive’ with Benjamin Brunn on Smallville, and (bound to impress some of the more aged BMPers), several releases on mid 90s warp records. So it goes without saying that I’m looking forward to his gig here in Tokyo in a few weeks. I thought I might focus on the support lineup all of who are also doing good things.
DJ Nobu seems to organise and …

Musical memories, with you for life – Body & Soul

I had an awesome dream last night. On waking up I realised it wasn’t so much a dream, it was me reliving a memory: seeing Body & Soul playing outdoors in Tokyo a few months back. It was a pretty special day, my last in Japan before heading off to Mongolia & Russia for a bit, and getting my first real chance to see some proper house in a long time.
It was an outdoor event under big tents which came in handy with the torrential rain that didn’t let up, but most …

I feel like stinkfinger is sitting comfortably between the ramblings of a group of friends and a slightly more professional music blog – so I don’t have any problem with diverting immediately from the topic at hand and dialling back the night a few hours.

A few words on my trip to Womb

So Saturday rolled around and it was my first chance to go out clubbing in Tokyo.
As I mentioned before Johnny D and Guido Schneider were to play, and I was pretty excited about the night. Daniel and I warmed up with some (actually pretty decent) burgers and wandered into the flashing lights and general chaos of Shibuya. Like many parts of Tokyo I was surprised how that by wandering just a few blocks back from the main areas that are teeming with people you can find very quiet …

Sunday Adventure Club

Just to keep things poppin along here is what I wrote about last Sunday with a few amendments.
We missed Cassy 🙁 Got there in time for last hour of luciano in the sun – lots of ‘his’ set records, freaks come out, god made me funky, the thrill me thing he played at Fabric (which I missed) again. Maybe 1000 people getting into it. Wink played next but about 20 min in massive rain came down and everyone hid under umbrellas apart from mentallists up the front. …
