Japan and the UK get together on the
dancefloor as Liverpool super club event Cream launches monthly nights at Yellow
with an October 30 kickoff party - "Cream in Tokyo Launch Special" - featuring
an appearance by Cream resident Seb Fontaine.
Voted time and again as one of the Top 10 DJs in the UK alongside the likes of Paul
Oakenfold and Carl Cox, Seb Fontaine is often called the King of
Tuff House. His singular brand of chunky beats has earned him a stellar reputation - even
with England' hard-to-please clubbers through residencies including his own
"Malibu Stacey" club nights at The Hanover Grand, the former
"Frisky" Friday Nights at Ministry of Sound and more recently
at the helm of Cream.
With over ten compilation albums to his name, Fontaine has, through his own Spot On record
label, been behind the highly successful Stretch and Vern hits "I'm Alive" and
"Come On." He has also more recently been chosen by the impeccable Boxed Records
to launch its new mix CD series, Prototype. Cream has additionally just released
the second in its Resident series of CDs, this one entitled Seb Fontaine.
Cream's Japan point man, Koji Tsubouchi, says that, with a BBC documentary crew and Cream
president James Barton scheduled to come to Japan as well, expectations are that the night
will prove to be something beyond the ordinary.
On the Halloween front, this year's nod (after TC's "Monday Monster
Madness" party, of course) goes to Vision Network's
"Halloween@Vision" event, which will make use of the entire Aoyama Vision
complex including Las Chicas, Nude Lounge and D-Zone. With Vision's outlandishly
fashionable staff making Halloween almost a daily affair, the complex is ideally set up to
make the last Halloween of the century one to remember. On the program are scary movies,
eerie decor, unexplained "strange sights," killer cocktails and devilish sounds
from Radio:on DJs.
