Welcome Wata Igarashi
We are happy to announce another new artist is joining our ranks, and that artist is Japanese talent Wata Igarashi. His stylish techno is deep and cerebral and his DJ sets are always colourful affairs that operate outside the usual lines.
Wata Igarashi becomes the latest family member at Octopus Agents. Igarashi’s profile has been steadily rising on the back of a series of strong productions, most notably his track “Void” as part of the Semantica anniversary compilation series and “Night”, his contribution to Peter Van Hoesen’s “Stealth” project from last year. Other notable releases include his new EP on The Bunker New York and a pair of EPs on Midgar. Igarashi’s talents are equally on display behind the decks, where he explores the trippier and more psychedelic brand of techno that Japan has become known for. Both as a DJ and a producer, Igarashi has developed a refined and powerful approach, delving into the deeper strands of techno. He has already played at major venues in Europe such as Berghain, Tresor, De School, Bassiani and Batofar, and is now preparing his first Europe tour of 2017.
