In a new series on our  blog network, we share playlists with local DJ created exclusively for our blog readers and listeners.

Here is the first playlist for BERLINIPPON.COM created by DJ Mäi originally from Osaka, now based in Berlin. Read her biography below.

Mäi aka Mai Matsunami is a DJ from Osaka, Japan. Mai’s life centres around techno music since her 14th birthday. Her musical socialisations began with the classic Detroit and Chicago records of her older brother. From him, she got her first set of Technics record players (and Fostex monitors) and a huge collection of vinyl. This was her base to develop a very distinct DJ style. During the 2000s, she made herself a name in the underground scene of Osaka and played in all the important clubs there. Beeing part of “asc sound.r”, she organised club events as well as open-air parties, and invited international artists. In 2008, she started a monthly party with the theme “Long live Osaka techno and house”. Techno, Acid House, Electro, Chicago-Detroit sound and some influences of breakbeats can be heard in her set. It will rock your body!
