Started out his music career in 2002 and soon began releasing tracks he’d produced through techno labels such as on Monoid Recordings (Start EP002) with signature hard techno and minimal house sound. His production releases have been piling up on a number of different labels from around the world with world class DJs such as Richie Hawtin, Hito and Joseph Capriati featuring his tracks in their club and party sets. He’s also experienced success as a winner of various production competitions such as those run through Plus Records & Cocoon Records. This hasn’t gone unnoticed by music industry magazines such as Mixmag where his rising star has been recognized through a number of interviews about his work and performance. Recently, Toru toured Australia playing a number of club and party gigs and holding down a massive set at Strawberry Fields, one of Australia’s premier underground dance music festivals. Toru makes sure to stay well grounded in his roots working with “SiNE” the Osaka & Tokyo based party crew he founded to run parties and production sessions focused on the freshest sounds in Techno and House. In 2017 he founded “yell0w” his own DJ and production artist school in Shinsaibashi, Osaka where he teaches and works to develop the next generation of up and coming local electronic artists.
