DJ Mitsu The Beats at the Turnaround

The last Japanese guest at the Turnaround was DJ Kentaro, and he was incredible. Mitsu promises to be just as exciting, Don't miss it!

DJ Mitsu, with Taro "Wassupski" Kesen (Jazzy Sport), September 24 at The Bacco Room, Nelson St. w/ support from: Julien Dyne (LIVE) ft Riki Gooch & Parks; and the Turnaround crew - Manuel Bundy, Submariner, Cian.

"Mini & Tiger Translate proudly present alongside The Turnaround for the first time in New Zealand, acclaimed Japanese DJ, musician and producer DJ Mitsu The Beats.

Fresh from releasing his third solo album Universal Force (PlanetGroove) in Japan, DJ Mitsu The Beats hits Aotearoa on his first visit down under, following in the footsteps of countryman and label mate Grooveman Spot who tore up clubs in Auckland and Wellington exactly one year ago. Having made a name for himself internationally with productions and remixes under his own name and as producer for hyped Japanese hip-hop group GAGLE, Mitsu comes correct with a special blend of deep-dug soul, jazz and funk breaks, hip-hop and future beats.

Joining Mitsu for two exclusive tour dates in Auckland and Wellington will be Taro "Wassupski" Kesen, head of Tokyo's influential record store/label/movement Jazzy Sport. Local support comes from Julien Dyne playing live with Riki Gooch & Parks, plus your hosts as always - Manuel Bundy, Submariner & Cian.

Come check one of the dopest Japanese DJ/producers of the past decade...
