Gonno is without a doubt an integral part of the current wave of house and techno in Japan. His releases have not only appeared on reputable local labels but have also made their way humbly over to the continent.
Gonno always manages to bring an acidy and melodic flavor to his DJ and live sets while still staying true to his house and techno roots. Without fail he draws clubbers in with eclectic sounds and the lost art of storytelling behind the decks/machines.
His notable releases include Acdise #2 on International Feel (2011), full-length Remember The Life Is Beautiful on Endless Flight (2015), a remix of Jeff Mills’ Light Of Electric Energy from his Where Light Ends album (2013), solo EP The Noughties on Beats In Space Records (2013), a collaboration EP with Nick Höppner Fantastic Planet on Ostgut Ton (2016).
He spent the past few years touring across the globe and making bi-annial appearance at Panorama Bar in Berlin, while contributing remixes to Cocktail D’Amore Music and Butter Sessions for example, and launched a new project with a Japanese drummer Masumura which consolidated into an album In Circles released on P-Vine Records in 2018. Another collaborative EP with Nick Höppner on Ostgut Ton is in the pipeline as well as more remixes in 2019.
