This may come as a surprise to some students but one of my hobbies is making electronic dance music!
When I was about 18 years old I was introduced to House, Techno and electronic music through public radio and instantly fell in love.
After that I started going clubbing…I loved the energy of the music and the atmosphere. I had a lot of fun times and met some great people. I started DJing at house parties too but wasn’t very good. 😔
So when I came to Japan I was able to see some of my favorite DJs and that inspired me to take up producing music myself. I’ve had a couple of tracks and remixes released under another name but mostly I just do it for fun. I’m always learning and being influenced by different sounds and experiences.
I even made a track called “Tokyo” which was influenced by the atmosphere and sounds of living here.
I would love to hear about your hobby next time we meet!
