Body & Soul Live in Japan

Music Odaiba Seaside Park , Odaiba Sunday June 3 2018

Danny Krivit, François K and Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell have acquired the aura of elder statesmen on the New York club scene – hardly surprising when you consider that the former two have been rocking the Big Apple's dancefloors since the 1970s. The trio started their Body & Soul parties in 1996, holding them on Sunday afternoons at the now-defunct Vinyl club in Lower Manhattan. They described the event as 'like a house party that got too big for someone's living room', although you'd have struggled to find a house party that drew such a wide-ranging crowd. While it's no longer a regular concern, Body & Soul still rears its head from time to time, not least in these annual outdoor parties in Tokyo. Moving to Odaiba for this year's edition, the outdoor Body & Soul Live in Tokyo remains a strictly daytime-only event, starting at noon and running until 9pm. As always, visuals come courtesy of New York lighting supremo Ariel.
