Hideki Ito

Hideki Ito

Hideki Ito is an Angeles City born Kapampangan-Japanese ermerging music producer-dj-artist whose influence is felt at venues that are big on sound as an experience. Born in a town that holds parties at a basketball court every year during fiestas, he takes inspiration from his upbringing which explores temporal spaces as refuge for enthusiasts with a particular taste in music influencing his sound to showcase leftfield techno—a potent creative energy that shapes dance floors into a higher state of pure consciousness.

He has been spinning since 2017 at local underground parties—Elephant, a queer party-collective in Manila held in the now-defunct club XX XX where he started as a club goer and became a resident dj who helped shape the sound identity of the safer space playing with the likes of Jonathan Kusuma and Transatlantic Berlin, Blitz in Today x Future where he devoted his earlier dj grinds, Kaput, and a current resident dj of the notorious SadoMasoDisco hosting parties at unconventional spots around the metro where he has amassed bookings to open for the likes of Fantastic Man, Mr. Ho, and Nemo & Castro of Sound Metaphors.

Through his ambitious ideas, he was able to land places such as El Nido, Palawan where he headlined the three-day Tao Festival Season Ender 2023 alongside international and local djs, played with renowned Nina Kraviz for ACiD Festival after party in WOMB, Tokyo, and have worked with NIKE, Vogue, Sounds Nais for his debut track, and Manila Community Radio x Boiler Room which showcased Budots—one of the grassroots sounds of the Philippines—and its mutations together with one of the largely credited pioneers of the genre—DJ Love. This inspired him to establish his forthcoming music label-collective Mekeni in hopes of rekindling a sense of pride among the talented native youth of Pampanga.
