Parties4Peace hosts a special evening at Contact Tokyo in celebration of their 15 Year Anniversary on Friday, Sept 8th featuring two of New York City's finest artists from the underground music scene. Since its inception in 2002, Parties 4 Peace has organized events in Tokyo, South America and more recently New York and Miami, inviting artists from around the world to create a culture of peace through music and dance. For this round of events in Japan, we will introduce the New York sound of producers Lauren Ritter from the ReSolute label and Justin Marchacos from Cityfox/Ebb+Flow, alongside Tokyo-based artists Stefano Lotti, Jay Zimmerman and Matsunami!
From the streets of Brooklyn, we have the infamous yet mysterious ReSolute New York, “an underground music event entity“ that has been steadily building up a global fan-base. With a well-known international roster already on board, ReSolute is a platform for fresh talents with extraordinary taste and passion for versatile, timeless sounds. We are excited to welcome the talented Lauren Ritter from ReSolute for her Tokyo debut ! Parties 4 Peace is also proud to introduce Justin Marchacos from the Ebb+Flow label in NYC and Zurich-based label Cityfox, with their well-known musical taste that is always danceable, psychadelic and includes fresh electronic rhythms somewhere between techno & house.
Parties 4 Peace is currently raising funds to produce its creative youth-focused educational initiative, the Music & Art Peace Academy (MAPA). MAPA aims to provide young artists, musicians and producers from around the world with experiences and resources that further enhance and develop their creative talents. In partnership with the international NGO Peace Boat–which travels the world by ship to promote peace education and sustainability–MAPA invites aspiring young creators to participate in global voyages onboard the ship to engage in workshops, lectures and hands on learning opportunities alongside professional artists.
