Tokyo’s own Hiroaki Oba takes his trademark house leanings live to World DJ Fest in Korea.
This beat-making oba-doser is a frequent performer in Tokyo’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, at clubs like Womb, Air, Superdeluxe and Oath. Hiroaki OBA likes to keep himself busy with a stew of projects that’s larger than a sumo’s chanko nabe soup pot. Engaging in laptop battles or arranging music and playing bass for various rock bands, he has also created music for film soundtracks. Drawing on his secret Italo disco collection for inspiration, Hiroaki OBA also mixes video projections into visual gold under a secret leprechaun-inspired pseudonym.
