– Japan Times, writing, music
In June 2011 I started as a music contributor to the Japan Times newspaper, the biggest English-language newspaper in Japan. To date I have contributed CD reviews, live previews and several full-length stories on the latest electronic and dance music coming out of Japan. Below are links to the articles that have been published in the paper and online.
