Japanese-born and Berlin-based, DJ Masda is known for his impeccable selections, decades of industry experience, as well as being a key underground figure since the 90s. Without being supported by any big name labels, DJ Masda has made a name for himself through two parties: Quop in Osaka and Cabaret in Tokyo. Cabaret was formed over 15 years ago and has morphed into a label called Cabaret Recordings, which eventually landed him in Berlin. Known for his mixing skills and eclectic tastes, his podcasts for Resident Advisor, Technique Tokyo and Undersound are very highly rated and sought after and shared.
Masda runs one of the most influential labels, CABARET Recordings since 2009, along with So Inagawa, whose prominent release such as So Inagawa’s Logo Queen has been a huge hit on and off the dancefloor. The label has become a homebase for artists such as Evan Baggs, Binh, and TC 80 among others with their Various Artist compilations gaining high demand and huge popularity.
Additionally, Masda runs Energy Flash Distribution (EFT) which is responsible for the vinyl distribution of Nicolas Lutz’s My Own Jupiter label, Binh’s label Time Passages, Bobby’s Pleasure Club, and of course his own CABARET Recordings.
Witnessing Masda live is believing.
