Mixmag Asia Radio heads to Jakarta via Japan with Apsara

Shortlisted as one to watch out for in 2020, Apsara has been relentless behind the decks and in the studio over the last few months. Currently based in Jakarta, the Tokyo-born DJ’s career propelled forward after moving to San Francisco — her tour diary has been packed with gigs at Tomorrowland, Djakarta Warehouse Project, the ominous SF club Ruby Skye, Avalon in Los Angeles, Air in Tokyo and Arkham in Shanghai.

Her productions have hit labels like Truesounds Music and ZeroThree Music (Toolroom Records) and she’s got an arsenal of releases ready to be unleashed this year. Her style is almost soothing at first listen, but you quickly start to notice her lack of shyness to drive a dance floor into an aggressive yet classy whirl of melodic and percussive rhythms, all in the form of deep and progressive house and techno.

For the tenth episode of Mixmag Asia Radio, we turned to Apsara to share with us, and you, her stylistic approach to music — the mix mostly includes her original productions as well as collaborations and a few unreleased beauties. We definitely expect to see her hitting up clubs all over Asia the moment the regional scene opens up again, but for now, tune in to sooth your quarantine blues by hitting play below.
