Some parties are so good they happen only once a year. Digital Convenience, the creation of expatriate English DJ and music industry maverick Plugsta, returns with the follow-up to last year' no-holds-barred electronic music fest at Harlem in Shibuya next Thursday.

Like the first Digital Convenience, the upcoming second instalment will highlight a wide cross section of dance music forces, coming from hip hop, breakbeats, house and techno circles in the US, Europe, and Japan.

From the UK, Super Collider is an emerging force whose album, Head On, was chosen as best album in electronic music magazines Groove, Remix, and Loud. Releasing material from the influential Skint Records (Fatboy Slim, etc.), Super Collider will be performing a live set in his very first Japanese appearance.

Also making his debut Japan performance is American tech-house DJ John Selway, listed recently in dance magazine URB's "next 100."

From Holland, Speedy J will be offering a multimedia live show. Headlining this summer's massive Sonar rave, Speedy J has been described in the New Music Express as "like Autechre with plutonium-plated balls of steel."

Domestic DJs will be represented by hardworking Fumiya Tanaka in his breakbeats Karafuto incarnation, beatmaster Quietstorm, Riow Arai and avant-garde turntablist Hashim B.
