Alaska

ALASKA is another side project of DJ KEFIR. He wanted to put some new sounds into dance music and he named the artist name “ALASKA” because the whole world can pronounce it easily just by reading it and Alaska itself is a land that is not quite known so he wanted to be a pioneer, meaning a pioneer to a new sound in dance music.

This is his first single called KATYUSHA, released in October, 2012.
You can get a copy through iTunes and Beatport.

First Collaboration Track with a Japanese Artist

DJ KEFIR starts his yearly tour in Japan from 2011. One of the reasons that brought him to Japan was his first collaboration track with a Japanese sing-a-song writer, hiro:n. She wrote the lyrics right after the Big Earthquake in Tohoku. Her prayers for peace is put into her lyrics. KEFIR and hiro:n made a track via Internet and finally they meet in Japan to shoot a music video for this track. Here is hiro:n’s blogs where she introducues the track with KEFIR.

Here is the lyrics for the track, “LOVE IS EVERYWHERE”

LOVE IS EVERYWHERE

lyrics: hiro:n
music: DJ KEFIR

街の色はblue
悲しみなど 嫌になる
I want to paint ,not pain
私なりに pray for change

神様の瞳を 信じてるeveryday
nextの時代を繋いで
LOVE IS EVERYWHERE
Asiaの風が うちらのstreetを結び
星も歴史もひとつにする
LOVE IS EVERYWHERE

give me 境界線のないmusicを
let me play back new school &old school
each roots, each sense, but same soul
LOVE IS EVERYWHERE

The cover photo for the track was designed by a Japanese painter & designer, JACK. After a few years, KEFIR and JACK get together at a Live Paint event at one of the biggest night clubs in Nagoya, Japan, iD Cafe. It was iD Cafe’s first time ever to do a live paint in their own club.
