Tomo Hirata is a tireless promoter and believer in the global sound of EDM. He originally debuted in the early days of dance music. HOOJ CHOONS, the infuential UK based label released his first vinyl record in 1990 and ever since he’s been Djing and producing. Around 1994, techno really exploded in Japan and the whole dance scene started to grow. Tomo and his friend Yo-C’s had a lot of success with the ‘X-tra’ events which became very popular in the mid to late 90’s. They featured UK Hard House & Trance and gathered 1000 people monthly. Tomo Hirata’s ‘Feels like Heaven’ was used in a Japanese horror movie and climbed up the Japanese mainstream pop chart. After that he compiled & mixed 10 Trance compilations for major record companies and supported Tiesto in Osaka in 2001.
In the late 2000’s Tomo also worked with Japan’s most respected DJ, Shinichi Osawa. Considering his tireless dedication and contribution to EDM in Japan, Tomo is without a doubt the most underrated, secret weapon of the Japanese EDM scene.
