Japan is often recognized as the easternmost haven for hip hop and beat music. For years Tokyo has been a hip hop mecca and brought forth the likes of DJ Krush and Nujabes. Lately the beat scene has flourished with producers like Budamunk, Bugseed, Pigeondust, and more.
Toky00 is a monthly event and radio show curated by French expat Child Midori who currently calls Tokyo his home. Each episode is played out live at a bar in Shibuya while being simultaneously broadcast in Paris via Radio Zero Zero. The focus is on beats and frequently features some of the best in the Japanese scene.
Guests on the latest show were Budamunk, Yagi, Tajima Hall, and DJ Efal. You can check out Child Midori’s most recent set on our Mixcloud page and peep some of the other guest mixes on the official Toky00 Soundcloud stream.
