Tokyo’s WOMB is set to re-open this coming weekend following an entire remodeling process that saw the mega-club closed for approximately a month.

The 1,000 capacity venue occupies four floors and is equipped with a state-of-the-art digital sound system and high-quality production value that sets it apart not only as one of the most sought-after party destinations of Japan, but of the entire Asian continent.

WOMB is known world over for hosting top-tier international names in techno, house and EDM while also giving space to emerging artists from Japan’s own vibrant dance music scene. Opened in the centre of Shibuya in 2000, WOMB has also hosted WOMB ADVENTURE since 2008, an indoor festival that attracts 10,000 attendees each edition. In the past few years WOMB has hosted esteemed names the caliber of Jamie Jones, Dixon, Loco Dice, Dubfire, Joseph Capriati and Nina Kraviz just to name a few. The club has also hosted its own stage at Guam’s Electric Island Festival in 2015 with a Japanese techno roster made up of Ken IshiiSugiurumn, Ko Kimura, Takkyu Ishino, and TECHRiDERS.

D’Julz at Womb, Tokyo

Djulz Womb Flyer

When it comes to getting the dance floor wild, leave it to non other than French house star D’Julz. To get our Monday started on the right foot here is D’Julz live from one of our favorite Japanese clubs, Womb. He brought the finest blend of house and techno to the clubbers at Womb for quite a journey on Halloween night this year.

The mix starts with classic house pads and atmospheres, and it sets the mood perfectly for the remainder of the mix. After the first track I was hooked. The groove transforms as a single percussive hit changes everything, and moving forward it is a true house music experience. To be honest, quite envious of those who were on the dance floor for this one.

The event was promoted and organized by prominent music group Tresvibes, and included Point G (Live) and many Japanese residents to complete the lineup. Japan is starting to become a focal point for the ever growing house and techno scene in the world, and nights like these show that there is an incredible amount of promise moving into the future.
