Meeting DJ Yoji At Guvernment Nightclub In Toronto
DJ Yoji has serious mixing skills and put that to the test last night at Guvernment Nightclub in Toronto. Fortunately I got to meet the master in person and converse in Japanese.
We decided to relocate the party to Skybar which is on top of the Guvernment and looks like a big outdoor party patio. Unfortunately it started raining but at that point we already finished our bottles and prepared to move downstairs to the main room.
Once in the main room I got in touch with one of the promoters which secured me access to the VIP back area of the stage where Yoji would eventually be spinning.
Around 2AM he arrived on stage and played some great tracks throughout the night ranging from Techy Techy to some weird Tetris song and his older much better stuff. Some of his songs always give me goosebumps when I hear them.
Yoji has an unique skill when it comes down to making electronic music. I recorded some great clips from the event and videomixed them together while mxing the audio as well.
It was absolutely unbelievable that I was able to talk to Yoji after his set was done, probably around 5AM. Luckily he understood my Japanese and we ended up exchanging some words. His makeup is definitely one of his main trademarks. You barely see a DJ nowadays that truly creates such a unique style.
I also met Dutch DJ Steven Quarre who just came back from another show in Canada and was basically relaxing in the VIP area waiting to fly back to Amsterdam after the show, so it was quite an international night.
Eventually I walked with both DJ's and the managers through the back doors where a cab was waiting to take both superb DJs back to the airport.
