Guest DJ Takamasa Owaki (first hour).

This week's first guest DJ is Takamasa Owaki, hailing from Kamo-gun in Japan. Takamasa Owaki started his career in South America as DJ participating in events in Colombia, Brazil and Ecuador.

His style revolves around House, Nu Disco & Tech House and his professional experience with 19 Years of musical influence with genres such as the '80s and '90s electronic music, Disco and Rock. Takamasa Owaki listened to classical music every day from a very young age influenced by his father.

At the age of 23, he moved to the US for 2 years as an agriculture trainee and was involved in Electronic music, HipHop, Reggae, and Latin music, and this baptism of various music genres set him off as a DJ. After returning to Japan, he worked as a florist while gaining experience as a DJ at cafes and bars.

With a style that shifts genres such as Disco, Afro House, Psychedelic, and Ambient with a focus on Deep House, and Soulful House he dramatically alters his style. Cactus Experience features urban, sophisticated sounds and addictive grooves, with Deep House that always penetrates deep inside.

Soulful House resonates with the cry of the soul, and Chill Out unleashes your spirit. His career started on Vinyl, and he has graced the decks as resident Dj in “Lavista” Nightclub at Intercontinental Hotel Doha Qatar, The Warehouse Wine & Tapas in Pearl Rotana Hotel Abu Dhabi, Impressions Lounge at Anantara Hotel Abu Dhabi, ToroToro Etihad Towers Abu Dhabi, and HardRock Café Bogotá, the Musical Journey of Cactus Experience goes deeper and deeper into your subconscious mind.

Guest DJ Andres Fierro (second hour).

This week's second guest DJ is Andres Fierro, Andres was born and raised in Colombia. Starting his career in 1997 he took on a more personal approach and quickly became a sought-after DJ and producer in the Colombian scene.

His sounds are indefinable and he can diverge between genres with fluidity without a peep from his audience, he does this without effort and fuses Progressive, Tech House and Techno. His brand features hard bass, beats and energy that uplifts the room into a very special environment in a very rare sense of himself.
