Birdcage was born in Sapporo, Japan just before music began to shift from analogue to digital. He has spent his life tirelessly searching for encounters with new music. Attracted to the innovative compositions and overwhelming grooves of electronic dance music, he was drawn to DJing. Expressing his unique perspective, his mixes are exquisite and delicate, centered on ambient techno with melody. His DJ style doesn’t rely solely on grooves and is not only for the dance floor but also for home listening.

While developing his career as a DJ, like many artists, he was also interested in producing original tracks. He taught himself music production and engineering, releasing his debut Ivory Tower EP on Basilic Records (France 2008). It took Birdcage only two years since he started producing music to emerge onto the world dance music scene. Birdcage describes his productions as ‘ambient and melodic that express a deep spiritual world’, with mysterious and beautiful melodies. His approach freely explores music without resting on the knowledge of genres he has nurtured from a young age.

His recent releases have been found on Basilic, Nice &nd Nasty, Foureal, Trailing, TTB Studio and Synapse with support from DJs like Laurent Garnier, Joakim, Pheek and President Bongo of GusGus.

Meanwhile, he’ll always be searching for new directions and possibilities in electronic music.
