Watch a Short Documentary on Tokyo's Club Scene
- Words: Glenn Jackson
The latest film to appear as part of Resident Advisor's excellent Real Scenes documentary series takes an in-depth look at the current state of Tokyo's club scene—specifically, its fight against Japan's "morality law," Fueiho. With commentary from the likes of Goth Trad, DJ Sprinkles, and a comprehensive assemblage of the city's most innovative DJs, producers, and promoters, RA's 30-minute doc provides an illuminating view into Tokyo's dance music scene as it struggles to find spaces to legally allow people to dance and to continue tapping a diminishing youth population. Real Scenes: Tokyo can be watched in its entirety below.
