Coming together in dance unifies the best things in life – inspiration, friendship, and collectives. Like moths to each other’s flames, Cool Room and ONO are combining senses to take you on a psychedelic, deep-listening journey headlined by Japanese techno wizard, Wata Igarashi. __________________________________________________
Wata Igarashi holds a place in the camp of psychedelic mind-benders, twisting listeners through vortexes of spacey disorientation. A professional composer and commercial music producer, the production values of his tracks stand out. His DJ sets and records brim with textured synth swells, pulsing basslines and sizzling hats, all wound together in smooth, trippy grooves.
The last few years have seen his profile outside Japan rise sharply and deservedly. With a series of standout releases across Midgar Records and The Bunker New York, Wata has established himself at the vanguard of modern deep techno. The former skate-punk and jazz-head always seeks to take listeners on a varied musical journey, and his extended DJ set will be sure to light up and bend your interiors.
Together we are aiming to cultivate a deep listening vibe with this lineup. Please take your time and embrace sound. Enjoy it and savour it, as the night will ascend with steady intensity.
