    Finally, the BOX area will give rise to trance tunes, with performances from DJ KAYA, NORIO SP, FULLMOON RAVE, agefarre, and more.

    But that’s not all, because the famous Robot Restaurantーa major tourist attraction in Shinjukuーis making an unexpected collaboration with ageHa to put on their first ever show outside the restaurant.

    31.July.2018 | MUSIC

    Japanese music producer and top dog in Japan’s dance music scene banvox will digitally release his first new song in 9 months Why You Gotta Do Me Like That worldwide on August 3.

    banvox has represented Japan at music festivals across the world including ULTRA Europe and he’s been praised highly by some of the biggest names in the scene including David Guetta and Avicii. Despite earning such widespread recognition, the artist suddenly ceased performing live at the end of 2017.

    After a long silence having halted his activities 8 months ago and releasing his last song Let Me Take You 9 months ago, he is now back in the game. The new song is described as being completely different from his dance trap material up to now and a return to his black music roots.


    banvox will perform at Rock in Japan Festival 2018 at Hitachi Seaside Park. It looks like he’s returning full throttle into a new chapter of his career.
