about

Born in Tokyo in 1974. In his junior high school years, Tasaka is swept up by the hip-hop music of Def Jam, Native Tongues and the like, and buys his first turntable and mixer. At the age of 18, Tasaka starts as a club DJ. He is enormously impacted by techno dance music, and immediately changes the direction of his music to that of techno. He starts playing regularly at clubs in Tokyo. Shortly after this, in 1998, Tasaka meets Takkyu Ishino in a record shop where he has worked since 1996; he gives Ishino a tape of his own DJ Mix, and this opens the door to his becoming a resident DJ working with Ishino at regular "Loopa" party. With his outstanding 'scratch' skills, mastered during his hip-hop era, Tasaka's control of the decks is superior to that of any normal techno DJ, mixing all kinds of genres which range from disco, minimal, electro to hip-hop. Tasaka's unique style of playing has an established reputation and he has made a name for himself as the new generation of Japanese techno DJs. Since 1998, Tasaka has been
active in Tokyo's key club scene by launching his own parties; these
include "DISCO TWINS" and"D-Park". In 1999, Tasaka joins Denki Groove's live performance as a turn-tablist, and also plays an important part in Denki Groove's "VOXXX" album by producing three tracks on the album with Takkyu Ishino. Having returned from his European tour at the beginning of 2000, Tasaka joins Denki Groove's nationwide tour. At "WIRE00," at Yokohama Arena , not only does Tasaka play the role of Denki Groove band-member at the but he also participates as a DJ for the first time.and for over seas, he played for lovenation(love parade),nature one,dance valley. On March 2001, Tasaka releases his first DJ MIX CD "LOOPA MIX mixed by DJ Tasaka", and on April , he plays the main floor of "MAYDAY 10IN01". In Summer 2001, Tasaka releases his first 12" single "LOOPA TROOPER"(Loopa), and makes his
second appearance at"WIRE01". On April 2002, Tasaka finally releases his first CD "PASSPORT FOR DISCO" (Ki/oon Records). This Year TASAKA return to Europe with his first SOLO ALBUM „ sould clap“ on Mueller Records .
