Takumi Kawahara

A superb mix from Tokyo-based DJ and collector Takumi Kawahara.

Takumi is part of the extended Organic Music family, regularly playing in Tokyo alongside Dubby and Tsukasa Ito. I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of months ago at Tractor, Nakameguro. I was amazed to learn that he was living and working in Melbourne three years ago, and we shared the same suburb of residence – Footscray!

Takumi says he envisioned the green hues of Amazonian jungles while crafting this mix, which features over an hour of deep and experimental music from across Latin America and Africa.
