Techno or house?

You were still underage at the beginning of your career, right?

Do you have a dream?

“I’d like djing at great events”.

What do you expected from ’Torpedo’? Do you think that Media Records can change your career?

“I think so, working with this brand is a big opportunity for my growth, a step forward for my career in music. There’re too many dj’s in Japan, that’s why I chose Europe”.

“Yes, music production is always like a work in progress”.

What’s your favourite music?

“Bass House and dubstep”.

Who’s the future EDM star?

“Marshmello”.

Do you think that EDM is an established concept?

“No, and it won’t be. EDM is more than a music genre, it represents the sound of the new generations and the perfect soundtrack for festivals”.

Well, music is fine, but music industry needs a rebirth: do you agree?

“Yes of course. Music should help music industry to regenerate itself”.
