After winning “burn WORLD DJ CONTEST 2013” Japan division, YAMATO an up and coming young DJ from Japan competed at “burn Studios Residency” in Ibiza as 2013 regional finalist of Japan, where AVICII from Sweden also performed.

YAMATO DJed right after AVICII and it was AVICII ʼ s very first encounter of a Japanese DJ to share the stage with, and he didnʼ t disappoint AVICII with what he delivered. This invitation and experience with AVICII gave YAMATO a push to pursue further in his career.
