Event Details

Blawan - who's been getting very enthusiastic props from artists like Radiohead and Ben UFO - will be making his much awaited return to Japan after the successful release of his debut album!

He broke into the Post-dubstep scene back in 2010, dropping numerous hits that would go on to exemplify an era, and earlier this year producer/DJ Blawan released his much-anticipated new album "Wet Will Always Dry" and now will be making his way back to Japan (Finally! We've been waiting!!) to play for us at Omotesando VENT, on November 9th!

Blawan cut his teeth back around 2010/2011 with some releases on Ben UFO and Peason Sound's Hessle Audio, as well as on prestigious Techno label R&S, making his name known within the Post-dubstep scene, and then went on to surpass the genre and gain the love and support from big time Techno artists like Surgeon and The Black Dog. He produced some underground club hits by sampling R&B star Brandy on one cut, "Getting Me Down", and also sampling the voice of Moodymann on "What You Do with What You Have". However, his major worldwide breakthrough came when he was the main remixer for Radiohead's remix album!

Balawan has been proactively involved in several side projects including Parassela with Analogue Cops and Karrren with Pariah, constantly evolving his style along with the sonic zeitgeist, and incorporating modular synths to produce a dynamic Techno style and sound. He's even released on labels like The Trilogy Tapes, which have been quite popular here in Japan, finally released his debut album, "Wet Will Always Dry"! By sure to not miss this epic night of cutting edge music at VENT!
