Today I noticed that for the first time one of my Mixcloud sets scored over 10.000 listeners with over 103.750 minutes listening time. That’s truly amazing! Domo-arigato gozaimashita to all who have been listening and supporting my humble dedication to Japan City Pop of the 80s, a genre which I fell in love with years ago and which I have been crate-digging during my last tours to Japan. Also thanks to electronic beats for mentioning my mix on their webzine and all of you who have been sharing and recommending it to your friends. Finally thanks to my dear friends Toby Izui and Robert Palmer from Tokyo for helping me dig in the right places to find those true gems of Japan City Pop on vinyl and to the patient staff at Jet Set Records, City Country CIty Records, Next Records, Ella Records, Recofan and all those Diskunion stores I’ve been raiding over the past years. I’m truly genki and I guess I need to mix Japan City Pop Volume 2 for you very soon!!! Mijk van Dijk presents Japan City Pop of the 80s PLAYLIST 1. Jadoes – Friday Night Story – Columbia 2.

I wrote a feature about my love affair with my Roland TB-303 Devil Fish for Bonedo, in German language. Non-German 303 fans may wanna check the videos. As you can see on this picture from 1997, I was really fond with my Devilfish Modification, when I picked it up from Robin Whittle, Real World Interfaces in Melbourne. Thanks for all his support. Also thanks to Ramon Zenker for his comment on how Hardfloor use their Silverbox. Other linked videos by Phuture, Aaliya, Robert Babicz, Heaven 17 (Official), Shannon, Newcleus, Charanjit Singh and yours truly. Peace! READ HERE! (Photo courtesy of Bonedo, all rights...read more

You’ve been asking for it and here it is: the official microglobe merch shop, with shirts, hoodies and stuff sporting the logo of my label microglobe. I printed some shirts for myself, received some requests and teamed up with Spreadshirt from Leipzig/ Germany to give you an opportunity to order them too. The shop is open since July 2018 already. You might have seen me wearing these on gigs. I’ve seen already Japanese fans on my tour last July wearing these. Now after half a year of use, washing and wearing, I am still very fond of the quality of the print and the fabric. If you are like me and don’t really like to order shirts on the net, coz you never know what you might get, I test-wore some for you. The Microglobe Logo Men’s Premium Shirt comes in all our colours and Size L, fits my not-so-superslim 1,81 cm tall body very well and didn’t shrink over half a year. I also wear the Microglobe Logo Men’s Premium Hoodie in Size L, which also fits perfectly. Last but not least the drawstring backpack. I always have one of these with me, to carry my headphones and USB-stick to the gig or just toss it out when shopping. Say no to plastic bags! So, whatever you choose to shop, I would love to hear your feedback about your experience of delivery and quality, here or on my Facebook Artist Page. ...read more
Happy New Year to all of you here! Keep floating on in 2019! “In between years”, the time between Christmas and NYE, I conceived this official video for “The Floating World”, a track of my Peace 4 All EP, catalogue number 001 of his label microglobe. I created The Floating World to be an updated soundscape of older tracks like All Our Colours (MFS Records, 1994) and Motherwomb (Frisbee Tracks, 2007). The track title was inspired by my love for Japanese culture and the art of Ukiyo-e. The video footage was shot on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg, a modern-day equivalent to the amusement quarters of ancient Edo. Hope you enjoy it. Mijk van Dijk – The Floating World (Official...read more
