Blackout Agency's RITUAL is back 22nd June with one of Japan's finest... Chida! Known within the industry as "The DJ's DJ" , that itself says alot about this man's skills and music selection. Respected by many in the scene, he is up there as one of the very best in the business. A pioneer in the Tokyo Underground with over 20 years experience and a regular in the Berghain / Panorama Bar lineup, he travels regularly around Europe slaying dancefloors at every gig. As a producer, he has his music signed to Jennifer Cardini's Correspondant and ESP Institute and supported by all the heavyweights of the music scene.
Having been stuck behind the desk for the last few months organising events and parties across the island, Blackout agency's boss man DJ Zig Zach returns on warmup duties!
We've been doing a number of rooftop open air parties and we think it's time to take it back to a nice little dark room. We found this cool intimate 200 capcity in the city that we can't wait to test out. ;) Hoping that this will be another venue that we can call one of our homes! Venue to be revealed soon.
$20 with One Drink. (Only 200 tickets)
More Info on Chida
Revered after more than 20 years as one of the most respected DJs in Tokyo, Chida is front and centre in the exciting new wave of House and Techno DJs who are now finding fame around the world.
Learning his craft playing alongside legends like Masters at Work, and at Strictly Rhythm and Nuyorican Soul Label Parties, Chida is famed in his home country for his marathon sets which have been known to last well in excess of 12 hours.
Since 2009 Chida has been running his label “Ene”, one of the most respected underground imprints amongst true house music aficionados, boasting a list of contributors including Prins Thomas, Eddie C, Man Power, Tiago, Lord of The Isles and homegrown Japanese talent such as The Backwoods, Cos Mes, and Sly Mongoose.
Finally, after so much anticipation following his much sought after debut 12”, Danca, on ESP Institute, Chida is finally about to release more music, with originals and remixes due on both his own label, and several others in 2016. Respected and even, on occasion, name-dropped by such amazing DJs as Eric “Dr Dunks” Duncan, The Idjut Boys, Lindstrom, Mak E, Justin Vandervolgan, Andrew Weatherall , Soft Rocks, Discodromo and a whole load more, Chida is truly a DJ’s DJ.
In this modern time where music production all to often takes precedence over true DJing craftsmanship, Chida remains that rarest of phenomena, a performer who has managed to carve out a global DJIng schedule purely from the merits of his sheer skill behind the decks.
