Yoji - Superstar DJ... Here You Go!
Monday, 5 November 2007
Your DJing style is both unique and iconic. Do you think being a DJ is more than simply about the music you play, mix and produce-
Since rockstars were once considered as a symbol of subculture, I believe that DJs can also be such a presence I think, and as a matter of fact, nowadays electric dance music is a big trend of young culture.
What productions are you working on at the moment-
Last week I just finished working on an original mix of my new track called Techy Techy, which is the latest release on my label Hellhouse. I have also recently begun the production of a variety of tracks for my upcoming artist album. At the same time, I also have a project to remix a track for a Japanese pop star.
You recently remixed Atomizers’ Time To Time. What was it about this track that made you want to rework it-
I had a variety of influences from old Belgian new beat and Belgian techno from the ’90s. I especially loved the track, and I wanted to remix this track for some time and finally had the chance to do it. I think that my current tech-dance style matches well with the original track and ended up with a cool track.
You’ve been to Australia numerous times. What attracts you here-
I love the fans in Australia.
And this isn’t your first time at Transmission is it- What can punters expect this time round-
I will prepare a lot of exclusive tracks you can only hear there and I just want the fans to prepare to look forward to it please.
Finally, a DJ of your stature must have a pretty fine rider. What are some of the things you must have backstage whenever you DJ-
Well, first of all I sweat a great deal on stage, so I always ask to place an electric fan in the DJ booth and secondly, my favourite drink, Jack Daniel’s and Veuve Clicquot.
