DJ toMU was born in Tokyo, Japan and started his DJ career in high school. Pushed by his love for music, he proceeded to New York to realize his dreams. He was deeply influenced by manipulating sounds into music that is created instrumentally by turntables, and hence pursued “turntablism” there. In 2000, he started playing for bands professionally and quickly established himself as he performed and experimented with numerous genres including Hip Hop, Rock, Jazz Funk, turntablism, etc.
As a professional solo turntablist, he became the first and only Japanese placed 2nd in the DMC New York 2005 finals. He returned to Japan later and quickly caught the eyes of Toshi Kubota, the pioneer of Japanese Soul and R&B music. Toshi Kuboto featured DJ Tomu in 2 of his tracks for his album “For Real?”.
Aside from being a world-class turntablist, he also started playing in the hip-hop band, OHGA Band in 2007, which emerged as “First Champion” in the “RED BULL SOUNDCLASH” – the first band style battle in Japan.
DJ toMU continues to be a prestigious and famous DJ in the circuit, and is currently heading his own DJ studio, Show Ning DJ Lab, for amateur DJs to pick up skills and gain experience.
