Hanoi rocks to Japanese beat

Japanese beat-maker Daisuke Tanabe will make the trip over the East Sea for his Hanoi debut on July 14 for the CAMA ATK to be held at 73A Mai Hac De in Hanoi.

Patience is a virtue, and few know this better than understated electronic beat-maker Daisuke Tanabe. After carefully honing his craft from the age of 16, he had his first EP release in 2006 that really brought him to the attention of Gilles Peterson and Pete Adarkwah.

Since then he has remixed with artists such as Elan Mehler and Aaron Jerome, and released music on the ever-reliable Ninja Tune label. Daisuke’s beat has been likened to electronic music maestros like Bonobo and Pantha Du Prince, and music to the ears of those into left-field ambient electronica.

Taking inspiration from jazz, folk, and reggae as well as the whole canon of electronic music, the young Japanese national will be playing his laidback electronica for one night only in Hanoi. This is a rare chance for Hanoians interested in electronic music to enjoy an off-beat performer in a relaxed, laid-back lounge environment.

Tickets are available for VND80,000 in advance and VND 120,000 on the door.
