STEREOCiTI was first discovered by Mike Huckaby in 2007. The Detroit legend introduced the Japanese producer to the world on his radio show. Immediately after the broadcast of the program, STEREOCiTI released his debut EP “Citifunk EP”, then joined a compilation “Up to the Surface” with producers such as Baaz and Scott Ferguson. Both records were released on Deep Explorer Music, a Spanish label owned by Dubbyman. These works led STEREOCiTI to sign to a Berlin based label Mojuba. “Early Light”, his first release on Mojuba, came out in 2009.
In 2011 STEREOCiTI released his first full-length album ”Kawasaki” on Mojuba. It was highly acclaimed by both dance music fans and critics, and is already regarded as a milestone in the history of deep house music.
His sources of influence are not only House and Techno music from Chicago and Detroit, but Jazz, Fusion, Dub, Rare Grooves, Japanese pop music of the 80′s and his mother who is a player/composer of traditional Japanese musical instruments. STEREOCITI himself plays guitar, bass, and percussion, which often featured in his songs.
He had long been a DJ before he became a producer. After starting the career at Maniac Love, a legendary club in Tokyo, he has rocked countless numbers of audiences. Groove, deepness and idea/inspiration are the essences of STEREOCiTI’s djing and his tight, stoical style gives him a strong one-and-only presence in the world of dance music
