Every December, Shibuya superclub Womb busts out of its already sizable confines to throw a party in the gargantuan Makuhari Messe convention center. As per tradition, the third edition of Womb Adventure is fronted by Canadian techno guru Richie Hawtin, this time in the dazzling, sound-and-light Plastikman incarnation that he’s been unleashing at festivals worldwide during 2010. Providing an alternative to the techno will be English drum’n’bass innovator Roni Size, Italian electro-house duo Crookers and local outfits including glitch-hoppers Dexpistols.
