Tokyo Metro Vol. 31 (Live Techno Set)
This episode of the Tokyo Metro Podcast was recorded live at Bar Gallo in Sendai, Japan. The dj booth was too tight to fit my gear, so I set up on the bar counter. Tried to stay focused with the crowd all around me, many of them asking how I was doing what I was doing, and offering to buy me drinks. Be sure to check out the video recording of this set on my YouTube channel if you'd like to see me in action.

Tokyo Metro Vol. 30 (Techno Vinyl Set by Naoki Takahashi)
Back by popular demand, here is a banging all vinyl mix by Naoki Takahashi (also known as DJ 2017 - Onani). Naoki and I played many parties together over the years, mainly in and around Ibaraki Prefecture in the mid 2000's, and his Tokyo Metro Mix he did for me years ago (back when the show streamed live on Pulse Radio) gained a loyal following. So happy to have him back in mix. No tracklisting, but I'm sure the true techno heads will recognize some of these bangers. You can follow Naoki on Youtube, where you can also see him perform this mix. You can also find him on Mixcloud. Download Tokyo Metro Vol.30 (mp3)
Tokyo Metro Vol. 29 (Live Minimal Techno Set)
This was a minimal techno set set recorded live at the Burning party at Xenobar/Jamhouse, Akita Japan on October 13th 2018 (scroll down to see all gear used). I was the opening act for the night, so kept things more subdued than I normally would. Elli Arakawa was the headlining DJ for the night, and it was great fun to be part of it. Everything in my set was played live, in real time. For more of my original music, visit xp8r.com.
