Very excited about volume 18th of our Exclusive Mix Series, this time featuring a duo from Japan.
DJ Largemouth and MC D2 came together to form Kaizan Records in their native Kanagawa, the far eastern heartland of Japan where the Kanto mountains meet the Pacific. Together, they have been producing and broadcasting their sound to the fast moving scene by releasing tunes through a variety of mediums while continuing to perform regularly at crucial gigs on the Tokyo circuit.
Their mix offers a unique perspective to the sounds circulating in the Japanese underground at the moment, so crank the volume up, and enjoy Large Mouth & MC D2 mix for Dataset Clothing.

If you could go anywhere in the world to play your music, where would you go and why?
I would love to visit England, because of music. It’s where Drum ‘n’ Bass originated!
