Magic Release Party

Magic Release Party

Modern techno peppered with classic disco


Originally published on on August 2012

Top DJ Kawasaki began to notice that some of his favorite North American legends would drop disco classics into their Tokyo sets of hard-hitting house and techno. Intrigued, he began to dig into the history of disco and unearth its influence on contemporary dance music. The result is Magic: A Collection of Black Dance Music Classics mixed by DJ Kawasaki. Intended as a primer for today’s party kids, the album runs from Sister Sledge to Chaka Khan. Kawasaki unleashes the album at Shibuya’s The Room this weekend.
