10 Things You Didn’t Know About DJ Oggy

Following the announcement of his newest remix for MØ’s popular song “Drum”, I wanted to discover more about DJ Oggy. It was a short interview, the talented Japanese DJ likes clarity and he goes straight to the point when answering to my questions. The whole dialogue is worth a read!

1 – Where were you born and where did you grow up?

I was born and raised in Japan. When I was 22 years old, I moved to Los Angeles for expanding my DJ career in 2002.

2 – How does music influence your life?

Dance Music makes my day 100% every time. Even I have a tough day, I listen to some good dance music, and driving around the city, I feel good. After I straight run to my lab for working some productions.

3 – What do you enjoy the most about your artistic career, producing a new song or remixing an existing one?

I always like making remixes. Especially for my DJ set. That’s the best feeling playing my remixes in front of crowds and get crazy together. They can take me another level. I still believe that crowds make DJ better mixing as a live performance.

4 – What are the parts of the song that you wanted to emphasize on your latest remix for MØ?

I love original a lot so I just wanted to give different vibes. I got tropical sounds but still, people can dance with it. I’m very glad to making this remix.

5 – How many days did it take you to produce this remix?

It took  me about a week.

6 – Do you work all alone or there’s a group of collaborators behind your music project?

I have a partner working with me. We call ourselves “Tokyo MO Beats”. We will have our first EP coming out soon… Keep in your mind “Tokyo MO Beats”!!!

7 – What’s the most valuable item in your music studio?

Ableton Live and Massive plug in… If I can use these, I am happy to work.

8 – How many songs and remixes would you like to release this year?

I am working few different projects now, hopefully, I can release everything which probably is about 20 songs.

9 – How well does it feel to be a Resident DJ at The Mayan? How long is your DJ set?

I love spinning at The Mayan. We have the best sound systems and lightings. I mix Visual also. I do VDJ there. And then, I have one more DJ who works with. We split our time from 9p-2a.

10 – Where can we stream and download your music?

Go to http://djoggy.com I have everything there. Hope, I will see you soon!!
