Masda is a veteran Japanese DJ who pushes the sort of classy house and techno you'd associate with someone like Daniel Bell or Zip. He's been playing out since the mid-'90s and, as he's never released any records, is considered to be one of the country's top DJs based on the strength of his club sets alone. Masda has built this reputation through a couple of key parties. The first was Osaka's quop, where as a resident DJ he played alongside big European names like Lawrence and Bell. The second was—and continues to be—Cabaret, his Tokyo party, which celebrated its 15th birthday in October. Cabaret takes place at Unit and the club's Saloon space, and in the past couple of years it's toured internationally, with notable stops at Club Der Visionaere and Salon Zur Wilden Renate in Berlin. (The subtle, reduced house music Der Visionaere favours is a great indication of Masda's style.) Cabaret has now spawned a record label, which Masda runs with So Inagawa, a respected Japanese artist who is about to put out his debut album through the label. They've also released an EP from Der Visionaere's Binh, a rising Berlin DJ and producer who is next up on Zip's Perlon label...
