Niche Productions is proud to present, Japanese sensation DJKENTARO – 2002 DMC World Champion, performing his only Australian show, an intense audio/visual experience live at The Forum on Saturday 27 March.
First earning the title of DMC Japan Champion in 2001, DJKENTARO won the coveted title of World Champion just a year later at the age of 20, earing the highest score in the contest’s history. In 2005 Kentaro wowed audiences worldwide with his Ninja Tune Solid Steel mix ‘On The wheels of Solid Steel’ which featured exclusive Ninja Tune back catalogue.
His full production debut ‘Enter’ was released in 2007, showing his talent as a producer and featured some guest turns from the likes of The Pharcyde, Spank Rock, and Fat Jon to name a few.
Kentaro’s blend of hip-hop, breaks, DnB and turntablism is untouchable, which has lead to many tours all over the world showing off his epic talent. Kentaro also understands that making a great album doesn’t mean an overload of scratching, with his album making a musical journey through the likes of funk, dub, space-jazz and DnB while staying true to his old skool hip hop roots.
More recently, Kentaro has been working on his second full production album to be released through Ninja Tune later in the year, as well as releasing a line of wristwatches for Nixon Worldwide.
DJKENTARO LIVE DJ/AV SHOW with special guests Dizz1, El Gusto (Hermitude) and True Vibenation (mixtape launch) – exclusively at The Forum, Saturday 27 March. Tickets on sale Thursday 18 February from moshtix.com and all moshtix outlets.
