ARTISTMANAGEMENT

PROFILE

Would it not be an overstatement that DJ EMMA, whose name derived from the King of Hell in Buddhism, is the one and only genuine DJ that Japan is proud of?
Having started DJing in 1985, he has made numerous parties at Tokyo venues successful. In 1994, he signed with "GOLD", a legendary club that created the era of foundation for house-based club music and culture in the 90's in Japan, comparable to the Paradise Garage or the Saint in the 80's in New York, and worked successfully as a regular Saturday resident DJ until closing of the club. With his superb, aggressive yet smooth skills and DJ sets, GOLD and the rest of the Tokyo club scene reached their peak, and he made himself known to all the Tokyo NITELISTs, the name created by himself for a core night clubber.
Since 1995, he has engaged not only in spinning, but also in music production. As part of "Malawi Rocks", a unit with Taro Kawauchi, he has released a number of remix and original productions and scored hits. From the same year, he started releasing a mix CD series, "EMMA HOUSE", which has always been a smashing hit at every release offering an up-to-date sound. In his productions, he has always been particular about the recording, focused on the latest technologies of the time such as using DSD recording for a mix CD ("Live at Yellow, Tokyo") for the first time in the world and the live feel of the floor, as well as mastering techniques. In 2000, he started his own dance music label, "Nitelist Music", and has released 2 compilation CDs. While his CDs are continued to be played at party scenes, he continues to release 12-inch records of Japanese hit-making artists as well as CDs.

In 2012 as well, he is as vigorous as ever, playing long sets every weekend for his regular gigs at Tokyo's top venues including "Trouble House (with AIBA/lighting & laser + NAKAICHI /vj) @ WOMB" and "Ultra Music @ ageHa", as well as spinning internationally.

PROFILE

DJ / Producer Dazzle Drums is the two of Nagi & Kei Sugano


Kei Sugano, The Hip Hop culture of '92 spurred him to be a DJ in the club and the disco in Tokyo. After a valuable experience from Tony Humphries and Timmy Regisford, he has mechanically changed his style to more soulful music based on house and dance classics, leading him to NYC several times experiencing the dance floors of parties such as The Loft, Zanzibar, Sound Factory Bar, The Warehouse (Bronx), The Shelter, and Body & SOUL.

Nagi, Loves the dance music since she was 15, way before she set a foot in a disco or a club. Her first club experience was in '96, invited by her gay friend. The journey as a DJ had begun on the dance floor, where she discovered individuality in an environment in which nationality didn't matter. From there she joined "Smoker", hosted by the Japanese legendary DJ Nori at club LOOP from '98 to '08.

Both members started DJing individually in the 90s. Although rooted in soulful house music, their selection blends a wide variety of tracks of dance, house classics as well as current songs. In 2005 they began producing music using the name Dazzle Drums. After building up their catalog with releases through overseas labels King Street Sounds, Centric Music, Tony Records, Makin Moves, Nulu Electronic, Tribe Records. DJs such as Danny Krivit, Joaquin Joe Claussell, Louie Vega, Tony Humphries, DJ Nori and Tim Sweeney have all been known to include their tracks in their sets.

From his skills behind the decks to his obsession with quality in the studio, is a testimony of why he has gain so much respect among his peers at home and abroad, and an underground following in Japan.
Ogawa spent his teenage years living in the metropolis of Tokyo and was engulfed by many forms of music protruding from every nooks. Originally interested in punk, new wave and hip-hop, it was not until Chicago House overwhelmed his heart and clubs began to appear in the early 80's, that he found his true calling for dance music and became a DJ.
Hailing from Nagoya, DJ Ogawa has been one of the pioneers of Nagoya's underground scene. In 2001, he began his own event called SMASH at Club Mago and af 12years of a solid reputation of high-quality music and world-class DJs, SMASH has become known across the country, and now favored by many guest DJs such as John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo and Satoshi Tomiie. 
Having a hectic schedule with residencies, even in the early days of his career, DJ Ogawa's true breakthrough came in 2008 when he took to production with studio partner Unic and released their first track "DEPARTURE". DJ Emma, known in Japan as the godfather of house went on to sign it to his label Nitelist Music, along with a remix by Sugirumn. Its instant success lead to it being ranked No.1 in Japan's Cisco's House Music Chart and with it being supported by a host of top DJ's at home and abroad, ended up selling out across the country and cemented his place as a producer in the dance music scene. 
With a great start in the studio, Ogawa took to remixing tracks and furthered his success with adding his unique touch to Kaoru Inoue's "The Whisperer in Germination", which was featured on the compilation CD series "EMMA HOUSE", and Inner City Jam Orchestra's "Sakura", which was included on the "Live at Pacha" CD mixed by Sugirumn and DJ Emma released in Japan.
He has also continue with his own productions with Unic and released original tracks such as "SMASH" and "EXPLOSION", both of which have been huge hits on dance floors around the country and constantly played out by the likes of Hernan Cattaneo across the world. It is no wonder that the track "EXPLOSION", with its powerful bass and piano riffs was featured on Beatport's Progressive House Chart #9 in 2012.
