” …at Vogue events and private events for Anna Wintour… His eclectic taste and inherent ability to keep guests jovial and dancing is unmatched… Always impeccably turned out he is one of the very best DJs and an absolute pleasure to work with.” – Vogue

Recently hailed in Vogue as a go-to DJ and fashion industry favorite, Japancakes has consistently impressed audiences from intimate events for a few to international festivals for a few thousand.


An early fascination for his parent’s record collection of rock, soul and disco classics evolved into playing guitar and drums by age 12. The ability to play multiple instruments ultimately sculpted his approach today as Japancakes’ sets are creative paths through generations of styles and flavors.


His live sets have taken him around the world including Bangkok, Bali, Hong Kong, Honolulu, London, Los Angeles, Manila, Rio de Janeiro, Singapore and Vancouver with residencies in Tokyo and at home in New York City. The vibe is always fun, sometimes nostalgic, but consistently high energy thus solidifying his reputation as a premiere DJ.


His authentic style has been a vehicle to play high profile events for Bill Murray, James Franco, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Michael Bloomberg as well as fashion staples Cartier, J.Crew, Rag & Bone, Versace and Vogue. Japancakes has performed alongside an array of artists including Dr. Dre, Questlove, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett while gaining the admiration of Agyness Deyn and Anna Wintour among other top ambassadors of music, fashion and entertainment.


Japancakes has been featured in Vogue, Complex, NY Post and Nylon.
