Name
Yuuki Mihara

What do you do?
Celebrity / model / radio DJ.

Where are you from?
Osaka.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
The XX, who I saw in Queens, NY. I missed the show that they did in Japan but I got to watch them when I went to run a half-marathon in Brooklyn. Although it had a few sounds, the gig was very emotional. I was in the front row, so I felt close to all three members. It was fascinating seeing them lit up by the stage lights.

Which sub-cultures have influenced you?
Dance music, because I did hip-hop dancing when I was young. I noticed since I’ve started to go to clubs that bass heavy music like Grime is the easiest to dance to. I don’t know very much, but I like James Blake and Mura Masa.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
I can't answer properly yet because I've only DJ'd a few times, but I like Compfunnk Records in Kitahama, Osaka. This record shop has a machine to make records and has events at night with good sound. It is next to a river so I like walking out to the shop and having a break in a good season.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Queen. I’d like to participate in LIVE AID as a support musician. I can only play the piano, so I'd have the exact same part with Freddie Mercury.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
I’d like to have a girl’s talk with Amy Winehouse at her house, and see her compose.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
SWINDLE. Their song ‘Coming Home’ is so cool. I want you to listen to it.
