Heralded as a hero of house music in both his native Japan and abroad, the legendary electronic composer Soichi Terada made his North American debut this month. After establishing his music label Far East Recordings in 1989, Terada’s music became a staple of early nineties US deep house and his tracks became a common occurrence in clubs around New York such as Paradise Garage. Having just wrapped up his tour through Europe in late 2015, Terada is has now brought his full live show to seven cities in both the US and Canada between February 5th – 20th.

For his first show in the United States, Soichi Terada kicked off his tour at the noteworthy subterranean event, Fine Time.

Soichi Terada LA debut was supported by Smart Bar’s Olin, Guillaume (Spring Theory), and Fine Time’s very own Tahl K.
