London and Manchester House collectives 4totheFloor, Makin’ Moves and Community have teamed up with Uchikawa’s LoftSoul Recordings imprint alongside R2 Records to present a night of quality music over two rooms.

Japan’s DJ Uchikawa has been a driving force for quality soulful music from jazz through to techno for 30 years, dubbed as the “Japan Jay” by Norman Jay himself. Now his global musical family have pulled together to celebrate his three decades in music.

DJ Uchikawa will be playing a special live set alongside vocalists Lyric L (FreshRotations) & Andrea Clarke (BB Boogie) plus Basil Isaac on percussion.

Coinciding with the release of Uchi’s new Loftsoul E.P. “Wait For You”, Chicago legend Cordell Johnson will be flying over for an exclusive set.

Add to that a plethora of London’s finest DJs, (as well as a special guest to be announced), and the line-up reflects the love and respect Uchikawa has gathered.
