"I want everyone to take a trip with me! Let's enter another world together!"
In Chorareii’s ‘DJ ID’ series, both established and emerging DJs from the Japanese clubbing & raving universe share some information about themselves, for us to know the vision behind the bangers.
'I feel that I am close to the people of Brazil on SoundCloud, even though I am physically far away from them. I hope that people who share a love for the same kind of music can meet each other, regardless of where they live.'
'DJing is a tool to find people who share a vision of the future and the world they want to see!'
“I’m probably more hip-hop than anyone else, so hip-hop people naturally gather around me. Seriously!”
"A DJ is not only someone who plays music by matching the bpm, but also a person who is very sensitive to people's energies and creative angles and can interpret their dynamics. DJs can play a role as a creative control tower."
«We have to stop analyzing everything 24/7 because we all have too much in our minds. Music can help us escape from that.»
«A DJ should show the diversity that exists not only in music but also in the community that comes to the club. That's not the case right now, so I'd be happy if we could achieve that in our generation.»
«Gabber as a music genre conveys a rebellious spirit, but gabbers share a unique love and behave as a family.»
«You have power, you can change the world. Art is the soil that nurtures the will of youth. Clubs and parties are art, so as DJs, it’s our role to provide that environment.»
«Streaming and the Internet seem free, but they are bound by algorithms. As anarchists or libertarians, we DJs should create opportunities for listeners to come into contact with new genres of music.»
«The DJ must find a good sound and give us the possibility of being saved by it.»
«Every party is held with the desire to have a "fun party", but in order to make people feel that, what exactly can we do other than playing good music?»
