unfold: Sapphire Slows at Protein Studios, London

We recently kicked off unfold in partnership with Japanese beer brand Asahi Super Dry, a series of four events celebrating innovative strands in Japanese underground electronic music. Tickets are free, you just have to sign up.

The tour kicked off in London at Protein Studios in Shoreditch. One room housed ORION – an audiovisual art installation by Japan-France art studio NONOTAK. In our main room three leading DJs in contemporary electronic music provided an immersive soundtrack that kept people dancing. Get a taste for the party here.

Sapphire Slows, one of the strongest, most active young techno producers in Tokyo, and currently a resident of Rinse FM, brought her distinctive sound to the unfold party. We captured her hypnotising two-hour set on record.

We’ll be in Manchester at the White Hotel on 25 May with DJ Fulltono and Kode9, then the tour closes in Leeds on 7 May with Andrew Weatherall and Kenji Takimi. Sign up for free tickets here.
