EDG (Electronic Dance Game music) Event Guide
Game music event EDG (Electronic Dance Game music) will be held on Sunday 22 May 2016 at “Social Club Tokyo” night club in Shibuya.
In recent years, EDM (Electronic Dance Music) has grown into a major genre which boasts millions of fans from all around the world. Although it can be said that EDM is the center of the dance music scene, it has surprisingly not spread through the game music world yet. At our first EDG event, we invite game music artists who incorporated EDM into their own style, and beyond the boundaries of the productions, by introducing the latest game music to game music fans and dance music fans.
For our first event we welcome Denji Sato (DETUNE Ltd) and Hiroyoshi Kato (noisycroak) working together as SATO (sanodg & kato [noisycroak]) as our headline act.
In addition we have a great lineup of EDG DJ’s such as switchworks who provided music for the games Deemo and Cytus along with Hiroyoshi Kato who worked on Shoumetsutoshi and CRUSH FEVER. We also have MitsuTheGrizzly (Pokelabo) who has been remixing a range of Pokelabo game music into EDM.
In the basement we have a wide selection of up and coming EDG DJ’s as well as CDs and other goods for sale by the performers and the sponsors.
Please visit our official website (http://edg.tokyo/) for more information on the artists, how to access the club, and more news about the event.
EDG will be held regularly in the future with the mission to “spread the latest dance game music.” Stay tuned.
