CHIDA has been a pioneer of the Tokyo underground house music scene from early 90s. His recent label project "Ene" in 2009, the records are ultra limited and hard to find but live up to every inch of the hype they've created.
Revered after more than 20 years as one of the most respected DJs in Tokyo, Chida is front and centre in the exciting new wave of House and Techno DJs who are now finding fame around the world.
Learning his craft playing alongside legends like Masters at Work, and at Strictly Rhythm and Nuyorican Soul Label Parties, Chida is famed in his home country for his marathon sets which have been known to last well in excess of 12 hours.
Since 2009 Chida has been running his label “Ene”, one of the most respected underground imprints amongst true house music aficionados, boasting a list of contributors including Prins Thomas, Eddie C, Man Power, Tiago, Lord of The Isles and homegrown Japanese talent such as The Backwoods, Cos Mes, and Sly Mongoose.
Finally, after so much anticipation following his much sought after debut 12”, Danca, on ESP Institute, Chida is finally about to release more music, with originals and remixes due on both his own label, and several others in 2016.
Respected and even, on occasion, name-dropped by such amazing DJs as Eric “Dr Dunks” Duncan, The Idjut Boys, Lindstrom, Mak E, Justin Vandervolgan, Andrew Weatherall , Soft Rocks, Discodromo and a whole load more, Chida is truly a DJ’s DJ.
In this modern time where music production all to often takes precedence over true DJing craftsmanship, Chida remains that rarest of phenomena, a performer who has managed to carve out a global DJIng schedule purely from the merits of his sheer skill behind the decks.
