Alter Festival



Versatility does not even come close to describing why the humble Japanese DJ ¥ØU$UK€ ¥UK1MAT$U is considered to be one of the best in the world by many of his peers. Your favorite DJ’s favorite DJ, Yukimatsu is originally from Osaka – where he ran his Zone Unknown parties – but is now based in Tokyo. His legendary mastery of the CDJs provides mind-bending but seamless connections of every imaginable genre. From his debut at DJ Nobu’s FUTURE TERROR event to performing three consecutive years at Berlin Atonal Festival, Yukimatsu’s sets have to be heard to be believed. His experimental approach results in versatile sets; from the more meditative and ambient to high-paced intensity and noise. His blends are often unexpected and propelled by his gripping performative presence.

A fixture in Asian Dope Boys’ durational installation/performances, Yukimatsu is a selector worthy of his own mix compilation, the Midnight Shift-released Midnight is Comin’.
