DJ DANBO -The Bold and Delicate-
Danbo was just an ordinary kid who was into street culture skateboarding and playing in a band until he started DJing in 1999. He was a 16 years old high school student, but it did not take him long to make a prominent figure in Hip-Hop scene as a DJ.
He organized a Hip-Hop party drawing audiences more than 500 people every single time, which was inconceivable back in the days in Japan. He was also active as a Live DJ for the Hip-Hop group IMP and KCYB, which are now know as BONG BROS, most well-known underground Hip-Hop crew in Kyoto.
As he continued to advance his career, he built a strong relationship with D-ST Entertainment, who was clearly conquering the scene nationally from Osaka, then was chosen as a Live DJ of DOBERMAN INC. at age of 21. During the same time he joined the Japan’s longest lasting party “Essential” and released a mix CD every month with DJ SANCON. His high skills of scratching was recognized and accepted to appear in works like “INFINITY D-ST -Limited Edition” and “BONG BROS –The Pain of Child Verse”. Gaining a large number of props as an essential DJ in Kyoto led him to join the representative party of Kyoto “BUTTERFLY SATURDAYS” starring DJ LEAD (Heavy Hitters).
In 2016, the biggest Hip-Hop event in Japan “SUMMER JAM TOKYO” was held for the first time and an only few spot for DJ was left to him. Next year, he made his first NYC tour (Slate NY, High Line Ball Room and more) and Japan tour (Harlem Tokyo and more) with DJ BIGBEN happen.
After gaining experience in different types of field, he is still performing over 200 gigs a year with“Hands-on Policy” as his motto. You will find his DJ style as very flexible from watching him cutting it up with precise, juggling beat, mixing the brand new and the olds, but at the same time perceiving a response from the audience as his No.1 priority. Please enjoy your time experience the original groove DJ DANBO creates with his bold and delicate techniques.
