I DJed at our magnificent, talented pal Makino Eri's event 13complex event on December 7th. It was the 10th one, and looked to be the most successful crowdwise, with numbers Abi can only dream of! The place was Bullet's, a rather nice smelling arty live space in Nishi-Azabu, with cushions all over the floor. Artists included Matobe Yuta doing his usual slightly disturbing comic schtick, Eri herself interpreting her songs as a high school play, and some quite desperately boring ambient things. DJ-wise, our Main Soul Bruvva Antonio Yodobashi was there to spin his usual blend of intensely funky South American Obscuricore, and Hayase Makoto, AKA Ham&ex, and a lovely fella DJed also. I thoroughly enjoyed DJing, and hope those of you who came did too.
