As a DJ, KATANA has been a fixture in the Auckland club scene for over a decade.
Originally from Japan, he’s built up a solid name for himself opening for acts such as A-Trak, DJ Snake, Alison Wonderland and Shlohmo. He’s also made mixtapes for Huffer, IMF Mag, and the world-famous Future Beats Show.
But (as the old saying goes) good things take time, and KATANA’s debut EP proves that he’s been quietly been honing his production chops and perfecting his craft behind the scenes.
His self-titled EP features six instrumental tracks that fuse together Future Bass with Hip Hop and Trap. ‘Move’ is definitely a stand out song that’ll rark up any club he plays to.
If you want to catch KATANA live, he hosts a regular night called ‘Bassment’ at Auckland venue Impala.
