Rounded; a new night on the London scene, switching things up. Bored of DJ Worship and generic, western dance music? Our parties will focus on a specific form of dance music from regions around the world. Expect, from one night to another, Japanese disco, Ugandan Techno, Arabic Jazz Fusion, Nordic space disco - and everything in between.
Rounded 001 takes us to Japan, to explore the rich history of City-Pop and 80s J-Pop. Using western disco and funk as a springboard, the Japanese created a genre of their own completely unlike any other. We will be joined on Friday 6th of December by two incredible DJs; anu and Yuka Mizuhara.
At every Rounded night, all profits will be split 50/50. The first half will be donated to a charity linked to the country who’s genre has been explored. In this case, we will be donating to the Japan Society’s ‘2019 Typhoon Hagibis Relief Fund’, which is helping the survivors of the recent Typhoon in Japan. The second half will be used in the running costs for Rounded 002!
