After winning “burn WORLD DJ CONTEST 2013” Japan division, YAMATO an up and coming young DJ from Japan competed at “burn Studios Residency” in Ibiza as 2013 regional finalist of Japan, where Avicii from Sweden also performed. It didn’t take a day for Avicii to approach YAMATO to ask to come along to support Avicii at his show in Budapest, Hungary.
YAMATO DJed right after Avicii and it was Avicii’s very first encounter of a Japanese DJ to share the stage with, and he didn’t disappoint Avicii with what he delivered. This invitation and experience with Avicii gave YAMATO a push to pursue further in his career.
After the Budapest appearance, YAMATO performed as Madeon’s warm-up DJ in October 2013, and went on to perform “Road To ULTRA JAPAN” in December.
YAMATO continues his career by appearing at “electrox 2014” in Makuhari Japan, Japan’s first EDM new year festival, where he was lined up with Steve Aoki, Steve Angelo, Laidback Luke and many more.
Only after a year from his winning at “burn WORLD DJ CONTEST 2013”, YAMATO received an invitation to play at Sankeys in Manchester in early May 2014, with Ali Shirazinia, commonly known by his stage name Dubfire, and packed the house, where of course he played the main stage.
YAMATO is scheduled to play as a part of “Afrojack” event being held in May 2014 at Shinkiba ageHa venue in Tokyo where Apster and D-Wayne also share the stage.
This coming up summer of 2014, YAMATO will appear at Sonicmania, the pre-party to be followed by Summer Sonic Festival. Sonicmania will feature Kraftwerk, ZEDD, 2manydjs, and many more are scheduled to appear, and YAMATO’s career will take another great step this summer of 2014.
Fully exploiting Pioneer CDJ-2000 nexus, YAMATO’s technical yet vibrant and dynamic performance keeps impacting the audience and fellow djs, that we will soon witness his greater achievements.
