MV014 Kazuma Onishi


Kazuma Onishi is a Japanese DJ & Producer based in Melbourne, Australia.

With a strong gravitational pull towards Groovy Techno, Kazuma has a diverse range and taste in music, often playing Minimal House, Deep House, and Breakbeats. Using a unique and interesting style of mixing developed over years of playing different styles, including hip-hop, R&B, and Trance, Kazuma often finds unique and new ways of blending tracks and genres. As a producer he is able to incorporate loops and samples into his sets, drawing on his wide array of inspiration to create a multi-layered groove and colourful journey. His music is often hypnotic, spacey, and high energy with a driving sense of direction balanced with trance-inducing melody.

Kazuma has played at Australian festivals, Strawberry Fields and Earthcore, as well as a myriad of Melbourne underground parties in venues such as My Aeon, Brown Alley, New Guernica, onesixone, Loop, Boney, Subclub and Bottom End.
