Auckland's favourite monthly follows up from last month's killer Gilles Peterson set with another international guest — DJ Kentaro from Japan.

Kentaro came 3rd in the Technics DMC World DJ Final in 2001 and won it in 2002 at the age of 20. In doing so, he became one of the first Asians to ever win the DMC World DJ Final, receiving the highest score in DMC history in the process.

He was signed to Ninja Tune independent record label and released a Solid Steel DJ mix album in September 2005, entitled On The Wheels of Solid Steel. The tracks on the album come exclusively from Ninja Tune's back catalogue. The Turnaround DJs Cian, Submariner & Manuel Bundy are very excited to have Kentaro as their guest this month. He has promised to play a banging club set for the crowd.
