Chris Akira

We Here Nowのレジデント兼オーガナイザー。

オランダ・ロッテル ダムで留学の傍ら数多くのオープンエアーパーティーやクラブイベントを手がける。

昨年夏に帰国し、東京を新たなベースにDJ活動を開始。若干21歳の数少ない若手DJの一人。

 

At the age of 16, he left Tokyo to spend time in Cannes, France where he gained a strong interest in electronic music. Soon after, he began playing electronic music himself. After he returned to Tokyo, he played a club for the first time and couldn't get enough.

 

 He came to live in Rotterdam, Netherlands from 2011 where he has hosted several events (Wasted R’dam Youth, HERE&NOW). He's also hosted an underground party series in Paris (CHANGe).

 

 Chris has not yet developed a style of music that quite fits him. From dub-techno to funky, he eliminates the border between many different genres, although the Dutch electronic music scene has definitely influenced his sound towards more tech-house driven style.

 

 From summer 2011 Chris Akira is Based in Tokyo.
