Horse Bazaar Presents: Tokyo x Melbourne featuring Budamunk & Aaron Choulai 

Melbourne’s best kept secret and Japanese underground venue Horse Bazaar is set to celebrate their 5th year of husband and wife team Takako and Fumi Tamura taking from the original owners, and they invite you to join them to experience a night of Melbourne x Tokyo music, food and subculture on Saturday 19 May.

Joining them exclusively from Japan is Delicious Vinyl’s DJ Budamunk and Aaron Choulai (Jazzy Sport) who will be hitting the decks with local beat makers from Melbourne music collective Lab Co and producer DJ Snuc who is originally from Japan but now resides in Melbourne and also works in the kitchen at Horse Bazaar.

Born in Shinjuku, Japan DJ Budamunk moved to LA at the age of 16 and started DJ and making beats. In 2004, Budamunk started working as Keentokers with Joe Styles (Delicious Vinyl) and OYG (DNC) and eared fame for LA underground scene.

In 2006 Budamunk moved back to Japan and joined Jazzy Sport. He won the prize at the very first beat battle in Japan called “Goldfinger’s Kitchen 08”. In 2011, he teamed up with ISSUGI & 5lack and released music as Green Butter collaborating with Mabanua, all the while building up the underground scene in Japan. In 2014 and 2015 Budamunk’s dream came true when he released two albums, an album with Joe Style in 2014 and solo album in 2105 on long established US record label Delicious Vinyl, leading him to tour extensively through Asian in 2016.

This year, Budamunk is set to release more music as a Japan’s leading beat maker and will be stopping by Horse Bazaar for one night only!
