As an organizer and resident of famed techno festival The Labyrinth, So (Satoshi Aoyagi) has built a reputation as one of Japan’s most respected and reliable DJs.

Presenting a well-curated mix of texturally rich, groove-heavy tracks, the Tokyo-based selector maintains deft control of the dance floor, employing smooth mixing techniques that prioritize subtlety and restraint. Over the past several years, So’s reputation in Japan has led to increasing opportunities overseas, including bookings at Nacht Digital, Waking Life, De School, Concrete, Tresor, aboutblank, Ankali, and Berghain. Now more than two decades into his career, So remains a powerful force in Japanese techno as his profile further rises across the globe.
