TAKU HIRAYAMA

Just a dedicated dance music DJ, hailing from south Japan Fukuoka city, based in Hong Kong. Keep digging and spinning diverse music and party night and day for over 15years.

Relocated to HK first time in 2006. With luck of meeting people, had played at numbers of club, bar, hotel and DIY party in the metropolis for 4years. After back to Japan, rebooted at Kieth Flack where he started first residency, and few other underground spots in town. Inspiration from endless session with many hidden talented domestic DJs and musicians allowed him to keep updating himself. In end of 2012, had an experience to travel Australia to see total solar eclipse and DJing around SE Asia. And found himself moved back to HK for a moment after.

Another surprise in 2014, took over his best favourite venue in city with his team and reopened as “oma”. Driving decent quality of sound system in tiny club and party with selective local resident DJs and more than a few international DJs. Oma has been visited by Daniel Bell, Moritz Von Oswald, Dave Clarke, Christian Smith, DJ Koze, Axel Boman, DJ Dustin, Oskar Offermann, Johanna Knutsson, Dirt Crew, Till Von Sein, Tiago, Chida… to name some. He’s also working as a crew of Tokyo based creative production “Jazzy Sport” and brought label artist like Mitsu The Beats, Grooveman Spot, Cro-Magnon to HK.

Alongside running such a club, organising his own regular night “Junktion” as a party to release his unique music selection of disco, house, techno and output inspiration from many other good music into deep, smooth and trippy groove consistently. Not only having guests, he does more long set, also open to last once in a while. Into soulful vibes early days and recently getting more inspiration from ambient, acid, dubby sound. Stripped down and build up minimal groove, and hypnotic and melodic vibes comes in. Let music breathe deeply and share a moment of being yourself. His set is getting a certain color and temperature.

Has been playing all over Asia in this few years and still in the middle of his music journey. In 2016, going to see eclipse again.
