Biography

Active: 1990s
Country Of origin: Japan

Female DJs tend to be a rarity in any country with a thriving techno scene, but Japan's D.J. Akira is a member of that exclusive club, having traded a career as a softcore porn actress for a position behind the mixing boards. Records such as Groove Machine (1997), Timezone (1998), and Tokyo 2000 (1999) featured a trance-y techno style that gradually grew friendlier to the dancefloor. ~ Steve Huey~ Rovi
