Special to The Japan Times Online

Saturday, Nov. 26

Mother Records -- X-Stream

Mother Records presents "X-Stream" at Club Citta in Kawasaki. Live acts X-Noize, Pop Stream and Logic Bomb. Mother resident Ta-Ka and Daijiro (Digital Block) provide the DJ sets. Tickets are 5,500 yen at the door.

The dance floor at Citta is kinda boxy compared to Differ Ariake and Zepp Tokyo, but it has a huge "sweet spot" -- confluence of sound -- that will make you glad you came out.

Mother Records proudly celebrates its 3rd anniversary on Dec. 17 at Differ Ariake. Check the Web site (www.mother.bz) for details TBA.

Solstice Music presents "TIP World Tour 2005" at Zepp Osaka. This is the final date on the Tour. Psychedelic godfather Raja Ram (DJ set) headlines for live acts Johann Bley, formerly of Juno Reactor, and Bio Tonic, plus DJs Lucas and Takashi.

Tickets are 6,000 yen at the door. Starts at 10 p.m. See the Web site ( www.solstice23.com) for details and other party dates on the tour.

Raja Ram was so hot last Saturday at Zepp Tokyo that extra fire extinguishers were brought in for his set. OK, not really, but you get the idea. You won't regret joining the obsequious horde.

Vision Quest -- Wicked Vision

Vision Quest Tokyo presents "Wicked Vision" at Zepp Tokyo in Odaiba. Live acts S.U.N. Project, Dali and Delirious, plus DJ sets by Ami, Dali and Delirious. Starts at 10 p.m. Advanced tickets are 6,000 yen (or 7,000 yen at the door).

This event celebrates S.U.N. Project's powerful new album "Wicked" (released Oct. 27). The last time this German trio played at Zepp, about one-third of the crowd was up on somebody's shoulders screaming. Dali delivered a delightful double at Gathering, but her stage presence at Zepp is even better. Delirious was not at Gathering but several tracks from their album "Breakpoint" has been getting some memorable play.

The fourth edition of Vision Quest's popular DVD series "The Gathering" will be released Dec. 22, just in time to stuff a stocking or two.

Saturday, Dec. 3

Sirius Records -- XP Voodoo

Sirius Records presents "Full Power -- "XP Voodoo Compilation Release Party" at Differ Ariake in Odaiba. Live acts 40% (Chemical Crew), Deedrah (Spun Records) and Z-Machine (Pukka Music), plus DJs XP Voodoo (Spun Records), Miki (Sirius Records) and Omi (40%/ Chemical Crew). Starts at 10 p.m. Advance tickets are 5,000 yen (or 6,000 yen at the door).

XP Voodoo strikes again with the December release of "Full Power Zenryoku," a compilation that looks every bit as powerful as his "Hi-Tech Pleasures" about a year ago. This will be the first performance in Japan for Z-Machine and the first Sirius party without Tokage's name on the flier.

Saturday, Dec. 10

Fineplay Music presents "Freedom Of Expression -- Perplex and Space Monkey Album Release Party" at Differ Ariake in Odaiba.
