For the last few years Japan's most successful DJ Satoshi Tomiie has quietly been working on new music, that it turns out, is perfectly suited to small rooms. As such in 2012, Satoshi will unveil all of his new work through a series of global intimate Popup parties. The first party will take place in Rome on April 10.
Satoshi has secretly been building up a bank of new special grooves - raw, deep house music, analogue rhythms and free melodies - that he is finally ready to unleash on dancefloors. The Satoshi Tomiie Popup parties will give dance music fans a chance to get up and close personal with one of the greats of house music, and experience his new dance music vision.
Satoshi Tomiie will play all-night at the exclusive Popup parties, where his sets will feature his new and unreleased music. The parties will take place only in small venues.
"I've worked hard on new music for the last couple of years, and I can't wait to finally unveil it all," said the Japanese producer and DJ. "I've always enjoyed playing in intimate spaces but I don't often get a chance to play them. This tour will give me an opportunity to showcase my new music at parties that are perfectly sized for my new sound."
Due to the intimate nature of Satoshi's Popup parties, the venues of the events will be kept secret from the public until only 48 hours prior to a Popup party taking place.
To coincide with the tour, Satoshi Tomiie will be releasing some of his new special grooves through a few select record labels. The first single from his new work, 'Straight Up', will be released on Systematic on May 12th 2012.
The venues and dates will be unveiled sporadically on:
