Japanese music, gaming, fashion and karaoke are set to collide as the UK’s leading Japanese club night returns to London on Saturday 28 May, boasting a headline performance from the first British artist to be signed to a major Japanese record label; Bentley Jones. He has nearly 5 million YouTube hits and over 8 million units of have been sold that contain his music. There will also be a live performance from Japanese violinist's Masa Futagami, which will feature cover of famous video game themes, including Mario, Zelda and Street Fighter.
The event, which aims to bring the excitement and energy of Tokyo’s electric night life to Britain, recently raised £6,000 for charities helping Japan. Hailed as ‘fantastic’ (Kerrang Radio), ‘fun’ (Absolute Radio) and making Living Social’s top 101 things to do before you die, Japan Underground has established itself as the place to be for fans of Japan’s rock, indie and metal music, as well as becoming the UK’s home for Japan’s visual kei movement, a genre of music where aesthetics and fashion are often regarded just as important as the music.
