The Japanese house and disco enthusiast hits Poland, Italy and Berlin this month.
Kenji Takimi has a string of dates lined up in Europe this month.
A multi-decade veteran of Japan's house and disco scenes, Takimi wears a number of different hats in his home country: he regularly DJs alongside international talent like DJ Harvey and Theo Parrish, produces under a multitude of monikers, remixes artists from Cornelius to Cut/Copy and runs Crue-L Records. Championed by Tim Sweeney (his 2010 mix for Beats in Space topped that year's list of his most-listened-to shows) and now beginning to travel more internationally, Takimi's profile has been growing beyond Japan of late.
Takimi will spend the next two weeks playing across Poland and Italy, with a few nights in Berlin closing out the tour. The trek begins at Basen in Warsaw this Friday, and he'll head south to Czestochowa for an appearance at the Rura Club the next night. On Friday, November 9th, Takimi will be at Mantova, Italy's Moxa club, and on Saturday, he'll be in Pescara to play at Tipografia. Berlin's Soju Bar will host him on Wednesday the 14th, and ://about blank has him booked for Friday the 16th fir their Japanese-centric edition of Homopatik. Details of a gig on Saturday the 17th have yet to be confirmed.
