DJ Kentaro Returns to London: 27 June 2014

DJ KentaroDJ Kentaro posterDJ Kentaro returns on the 27th June 2014 with his untouchable blend of hip-hop, breaks and drum & bass at Rich Mix. DJ Kentaro is a mad dexterous surgeon, who slices and dices beats into a breathtaking concoction in his Sendai laboratory and at events all over the world. Where some turntablists are content to fill their routines with the same ol’ thang, Kentaro uses his awesome technique to move beyond the crab scratch and has catapulted drum ‘n’ bass and dance music into a realm that nobody else has yet to explore.

Known the world over as both a turntablist and as a sound creator, Japan’s DJ Kentaro first entered the consciousness of the global music community by scoring a landslide victory at the world’s biggest DJ battle, the DMC 2002, to become the first ever Asian Champion of the World. Since then he has performed shows across the globe, played Fuji Rock and other large scale festivals outside his home country and continued to tour HARD. ‘My Favorite Songs’ – Kentaro’s first ever mix CD – stands as a testament to his pioneering vision of melding the mentality of a battler with the street smarts and savvy of the hip-hop elite.

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
