Her small stature and unassuming appearance might make it a surprise to find out that Japanese native Hito is an absolutely lethal techno selector. After building up a deep record collection and fine-tuning her DJ abilities, she moved to Berlin in 1999 and became fascinated with the emotional and dark sounds of techno - especially of the vinyl variety. Since, she's become adopted into Richie Hawtin's coveted ENTER. family and is also a Model 1 ambassador.
Hito is arriving in San Diego for CRSSD Festival on September 30 and October 1, but ahead of the show, she's brought 10 of her most favorite rotations for a sharp and complex playlist of techno weapons.
