DJ HIKARU (Blast Head) from JAPAN
Hikaru… is a laid-back second son of the family, a cat lover and a DJ who travels all over Japan to seek for fun parties.
After spending years as an artist to represent Grassroots, a well-known & respected club/bar/meeting spot in Koenji (Tokyo), he moved his base to Okinawa.
Hikaru teamed up with Dr. Tetsu to establish Blast Head (BH) in 1997. BH released 1st and 2nd album in 1999 and 2000 and they were highly acclaimed by music lovers including Chari Chari and Eye (Boredomes). In 2001, their 3rd album “head music” was released “free hand” on their own label established in the same year. Their cross-genre, musically free-spirited vibe successfully penetrated the club scene and some tracks from the album were licensed to Chari Chari and Calm’s compilation CDs. Their 4th album “Landscape” which was released in 2002 further extended their fan base. While working on production, remix or mix CD for Japanese major artists such as UA and Rebel Familia, Rebirth, the album “Outdoor” was released in 2007 and 6th album “Nu Island” in the following year.
Hikaru is known for his genre-less mix from dub, reggae, hip hop, soul, funk, disco, breakbeat, house, techno, jazz, rock, ambient, to world music and his style is described as “free form beyond free form”. With his own interpretation of music and an instinct to mix it so naturally, his magnetic performance shows his deep and extensive musicianship and it is simply one and only. He rocks the crowd without fail regardless of events – big outdoor festivals, support for foreign artists at large-scale clubs, or underground parties. He is one of the most trusted and recognized DJs by DJs, creators, party freaks and music lovers.
QOTAROO（ CosmicLab / POWWOW )
QOTAROO is graphic artist / designer and the one of the leader of a party scene in Kansai. In past, he had organized many parties as a booking manager in Club Zing. Now he is holding “Powwow” in various places in Japan dropping the imagination, which comes from the party into the design, while he circulates a dance floor and design. Like he says “When making a flier and a jacket, I think the color changes the melody/shape for a groove, and it’s translation to sight from hearing.” QOTAROO expresses, naturally and very closely, the feeling and vibration of the moment when DJ sets sound free. “ I watch the sound. I hear the light” This sense is the true charm of the design of QOTAROO.
