just saw kentaro perform a dj set here in shanghai. was great. he reproduced enter the new ground, trust, free and a coule others frm his debut album, the very one that the blog masters hated, and decided to remove my positive review of (due to the fact that, one is not allowed to have a different opinion than these clowns)

anyways, the show was class all the way, as are most ninja gigs i see. it was kentaro, 2 tables, a 3rd table set up with scratch, or another digi set up. and a kaos pad. plus a banner set up behind him (big whoop!) but seriously, the mad skills involved whoooooo boy... even just regular club dj styled stuff was mezmerising as he could just leave it be.

i'm not partial to just seeing people play others records, but in this case, it's like seeing a class scratch act like kid koala (minus the humour) mixed with the mad dancefloor destruction of amon tobin...

this dvd, i'm not too sure about, although i live in shanghai, and i'm relatively close to japan, the jap imports are nigh impossible to obtain over here. abd unfortunately kentaro wasn't selling any merch at the gig... somehting i hope is rectified next time he comes to these shores...
