Ogawa spent his teenage years living in the metropolis of Tokyo and was engulfed by many forms of music protruding from every nook and granny.

Having a hectic schedule with residencies, even in the early days of his career, DJ Ogawa’s true breakthrough came in 2008 when he took to production with studio partner Unic and released their first track “DEPARTURE”.

Its instant success lead to it being ranked No.1 in Japan’s Cisco’s House Music Chart and with it being supported by a host of top DJ’s at home and abroad, ended up selling out across the country and cemented his place as a producer in the dance music scene. With a great start in the studio, Ogawa took to remixing tracks and furthered his success with adding his unique touch to Kaoru Inoue’s “The Whisperer in Germination”, which was featured on the compilation CD series “EMMA HOUSE”, and Inner City Jam Orchestra’s “Sakura”, which was included on the “Live at Pacha” CD mixed by Sugirumn and DJ Emma released in Japan.
