Favorite part about mixing / making music:
The feel of connecting with the crowd through music. Every track selected and cued on a mix expresses one’s view of the world.
Favorite studio equipment:
That would be my new AIAIAI TMA-1 Headphones, their sound is clear and has a very cool design. I also like my ALLEN&HEATH XONE:DB4 because it’s versatility for mixing.
Name a music album that changed your life and why:
DJ CRAZE / LIVE IN PUERTO RICO : HIPHOP DRUM N BASS TURNTABLISM, Because this was my introduction to the Drum’n’bass sound.
Production/ mixing advise for beginners:
Keep the faith.
Tell us something people don’t know about you:
I spin Dnb strictly on vinyl on a triple deck setup. I also love drawing/ painting, I used to do it live in clubs a long time ago. I also find a strange beauty in ruins/ decay.
Strictly Vinyl huh?:
Yes, it has the best sound, weight and warmth you know?
Your Favorite restaurant?:
Uguisu ( in Tokyo, Setagaya ), great dishes and wine selection.
How big is the scene in Japan right now? The bass scene in Japan is not that big, but it’s been growing in the past few years. Getting stronger every day.
If we were to visit your city, and wanted to learn more about the bass scene there, which clubs would you recommend to someone visiting Japan and why?
Go to Daikanyama UNIT, it has the best soundsystem!
Do you have any new tracks you are producing? Maybe plans to release something soon?
I just finished a track with Kan Takahiko called Blackout. Maybe getting released this summer!
