He was active in various DJ battles, won the grand prize for three years at Vestax’s No Tricks DJ Battle, and in 2010 became No Tricks Japan/Korea champion at Seoul World DJ Festival.
Shintaro has received numerous offers from labels around the globe, and in November 2014 he decided to start afresh as the pioneering artist and producer behind GMO Internet Group’s globally focused agency GMO Culture Incubation.
In May 2015, his first official remix “BBHMM (Shintaro & YGSP Remix) / Rihanna” won TWRK’s Remix Contest, got featured on BBC Radio1’s “Diplo & Friends,” and is revving up anticipation for his upcoming releases. Shintaro is ready to show the world what he’s all about.
