Hype.My speaks to the Best DJ in Asia Award nominee, DJ Ono in an exclusive interview.
If you had one million dollars, how would you spend it?
I would retire from being a DJ, travel the world and invest in my production as a producer. I would also buy a house and car.
What is the one thing that has happened in your life that has made a big impact on who you are today?
Moving myself from Vancouver, Canada to Asia in 2000 definitely was a game changer in my life. Quiting my career at the major advertising firm Dentsu also changed my life. I have to say, music has made me do what I love to do and who I am today.
What is your real name, if you’re using an alias?
Hitoshi Andrew Ono
What is the one thing that not a lot of people know about you?
Probably that I’m Japanese-Canadian born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. Oh and I love Snowboarding. Haha!
What is the first event you played at?
It was in Vancouver, Canada alongside my brother and the Boyscout crew back in 1998. It was in a dope nightclub when Hip-hop was all we played and vinyl was all we used.
What is the best event you have ever played at?
The best event we played at was probably the various major music festivals that we were apart of. Most memorable is the Openair Frauenfeldin Switzerland in years 2011 and 2012 where we played alongside all our mentors from Snoop Dogg, Nas, Wu-tang, Drake, 50, Wiz, Asap and Cypress Hill.
Out of all the tunes you have, which one never fails?
Takin’ it back Jump Around house of Pain never goes wrong.
When the partying is over, how do you like to unwind?
Just chilling. Haha with some company or alone. Just chillin’.
If you could collaborate with a Malaysian artist who would it be and why?
Definitely, Joe Flizzow and the Kartel Hitmen. We go way back and I’m starting to get into production so we would love to keep it in the Family. Plus, they run the town and are dope a** artists!
What about an international artist?
DR DRE has always been one of my favourite producers rappers of all time. It would be an honour just to meet him one day and working with him would be a dream come true.
DJ Ono is looking forward to Laundry clubs Halloween weekend. LET’S GET IT KL!!!!
