DJ GOU

Gou is one of the Japanese underground techno and house scene’s busiest and most respected DJs and promoters.

Based in the motor city Nagoya (the home to companies like Toyota and Mitsubishi and one of the biggest metropolises in the world), Gou is the brains behind the now-legendary Electronic Shower parties, responsible for bringing central Japan some of the world’s finest names in techno and house. Performing as a DJ and promoting since 2001, it was a trip to the Australian summer of 2004-2005 that provided some of the biggest inspiration for the Electronic Shower brand and eventually brought Gou on board as Open Records official Japanese representative.

As a DJ, Gou’s smooth mix of party techno, classic progressive and tribal house never fails to move a dancefloor. Fresh, a little bit quirky and always packed full of funk, his sound sees him perform shoulder-to-shoulder with the international elite in many of Japan’s major clubs, parties and festivals. He is increasingly popular internationally as well, with two Australian tours under his belt (and a third on the way), alongside shows in Thailand’s capital Bangkok. Above all, DJ Gou is one of the nicest guys in the business with a true passion and drive in everything he does. Coupled with his vital contribution to Japan’s underground electronic music culture, it’s not hard to see why he’s one of the most important cogs in the machine that is Open Records.
