Japanese DJ Hero Kentaro Back in London
23 March, 2012 2 Comments
LONDON, GET READY to witness the best turntablist to ever come from Japan; DJ Kentaro, as he weaves, breaks and reconstructs the very fabrics of hip hop, drum and bass and electronic beat without ever missing a beat. In fact, we’d go as far as seeing he is one of the best in the world – and he has the awards to prove it. In 2002, at the age of 20, he smashed the highest ever recorded score at the DMC World Championships DJ awards and became the first Asian artist to win the finals.
DJ Kentaro will be playing at XOYO London on the 14th July. Advanced tickets are available with a face value of £14.50 from TicketWeb, Seetickets and WeGotTickets. Early bird tickets have already sold out. DJ Kentaro will also play in Paris on 12th July at La Machine du Moulin Rouge, and will make an appearance at Belgium’s Dour Festival on 15th July and Croatia’s Soundwave Festival on 21st July.
Support for London’s show comes in the form of former DMC World Champion DJ Woody, representin’ the Old Skool turntablist steez, and Bristol’s New Skool mash-up king DJ Cheeba, amongst others.
Watch out for DJ Kentaro’s new full length album, spinning its way to you this summer.
