Yebisu Garden Palace has long been a Tokyo destination for all-night New Year’s fun. In 2010 Electronic Tribe took the party over, and returns this year with a pretty startling line-up. You’ve got DJ Krush with his instrumental hip hop vibes, Detroit Techno Godfather Derrick May and his original old school style, and the always unpredictable EYE from the noise-rock band Boredoms. Then there’s Ninja Tunes’ glitchy electronic composer Daedalus, Kitsune’s GILDAS, and Tokyo’s own digital vagrants, Dex Pistols. This one, my Tokyo revellers, just might be the downtown party to rock in the New Year in true bootie-shakin’ style.
