For Andy Newcombe, a London resident and former language teacher in Japan, what started as a small Japan fundraiser on Facebook, has now grown into a global online event resulting in upcoming dance events in London, New York and Chicago, with others to be confirmed. On Friday 18th March at Plastic People in London’s east end, A Dance for Japan brought together a group of DJs including world renowned Basement Jaxx, whose tour of Japan was cancelled this week, and Ashley Beedle, to raise money for the Japan earthquake and tsunami appeal.
Organiser – DISCOBOX DJ and promoter Andy Newcombe, lived and worked in Japan for three years, said “to sit and watch this catastrophic disaster live and do nothing is just not an option. Having spent a lot of time in Sendai City and Miyagi Prefecture over the past 15 years and made lots of close friends there I had to do something to help.”
The New York event will take place this Saturday, March 26th and is being hosted by Trophy Bar, Mamakitten & MikeFromNothing. Pulling together the finest in the city’s music talent including DJs such as Prince Language, DJ Soul, James Friedman, Queen Majesty, Hannah Rad, sTERRYo, WooHoo, DJ Get Live!, Silvia Prada, Carolos Jadriaque, Brennan Green, Tim Love Lee, Tommy Moye and Lauren Flax.
