The Nihon Kizuna compilation was one of the first charity albums released after the March 11 quake and tsunami last year, and went on to raise over $30,000 for the Japanese Red Cross. One year on, many of the artists who contributed tracks to the album are clubbing together for a pair of follow-up fundraiser gigs in Tokyo and London, which are being held on the first anniversary of the disaster. The Tokyo party includes recent Red Bull Music Academy grad Yosi Horikawa, expat beatmakers BD1982 and A Taut Line, and the Raid System crew's Broken Haze, XLII and DJ Ken One, plus a guest set from Florida's DJ Deville. It's free to get in, but they'll be taking donations on the door, with all proceeds going to the Red Cross.
