We'll be playing a wide range of artists and tunes throughout the evening courtesy of our DJs:

DJ Voxie

Voxie is better known as the founder of the anime/manga fanzine MAME but has also decided to try her hand at DJing, making her debut at the Christmas J-Pop Go in 2005. Voxie favours a lot of anime and games music along with some crazy remixes. Her performance was hugely popular amongst the J-Pop Go regulars and she'll be joining us for future events throughout 2006.

DJ Highpriest

DJ Highpriest first discovered the wonders of Japanese music when a friend played him the astounding Sushi 3003 compilation. This began a journey deep into the realms of Shibuya-kei and beyond as he sought out as many of the featured groups on vinyl if possible. This interest continually expands as new Japanese friends introduce him to ever more mind-blowing sounds of the highest calibre.

Fuelled by 3 epic journies around Japan this aspiring film maker has shot 12 hours of digital videoover there; a vinyl junkie, he will often be found exploring the vinyl emporia of Shibya and Shinjuku as well as hanging out with stars of the Shibuya-kei scene.
