A Friday night at UCESS the Lounge

My second ever DJ set at UCESS the Lounge in Harajuku went surprisingly well, despite running late because the train stopped (boy, did I sweat it there!) and customers already in the venue waiting for the event to start. Last time I played for 40 minutes, but this time I played an hour-long set with … Continue Reading

DJ set at Club Contact Tokyo

A few weeks ago, I did my first ever DJ set at Club Contact Tokyo. As someone who just started learning this summer, this was a big accomplishment. Because being a good DJ isn’t just about playing one track after the other – you need to take time to accumulate tracks that match your style, … Continue Reading

August playlist – EDM & House

Music has always been a huge part of my life, and it only made sense to start sharing some of the music I listen to. I’m listening to a lot of electronic/dance, house and some trap, so I made a quick playlist of 10 favorites. Maybe I’ll do other genres, like classical music (I was … Continue Reading

Where does this door go

I`m currently hooked with Mayer Hawthorne`s new album, “Where Does This Door Go.” Last year, I had the pleasure of participating in his music video for “No Strings” and I’ve been listening to his music ever since. This album really makes me feel at “home,” i.e., California. I feel like he really catches the California vibe … Continue Reading
