◆Biography

•English
4LA / Hiroki Shira

Inspired by some legendary DJs with 90's house music in Sapporo,
Japan where he lives, 4LA (born in 1985, blood type: B )
started his music career in 2007.

He's built a strong background in house music by supporting some well-known artists from home and abroad such as Demitri from Paris, ATFC, Rasmus Faber, Satoshi Tomiie, DJ EMMA, DJ Gomi, Hideo Kobayashi, and Yukihiro Fukutomi(Foog).

To share and pursue the potential of underground music which he's immersed himself in, he's launched a house music crew, "GLAD HOUSE" in 2010.

He traveled to Europe to meet Tomoki Tamura[Holic Trax] (a Japanese DJ/ Producer in Berlin) who he respects and he has also played a 6-hour set in Notting Hill, London.

His house music makes the audience step through a dance, and offers the new sensation to the floor of the "Acid House" and "Deep House" in Sapporo.

Not only is he into the big labels such as OM Records, Naked Music, Strictly Rhythm Records, pampaIbadan Records, King Street Sounds, Def Mix, and Basement Boys Records,
he is also bonded with "deep" house music which never get affected by trends like Holic Trax, Rekids, Heist Recordings, MCDE, Freerange Records, Rutilance Records, Kizi Garden Records, Dirt Crew Recordings, Local Talk,Aurhythm, Running Back, Fasten Musique.

He's been engaged in creating original tracks to release by adding some ideas that come from within himself and that are based on his roots.

In 2014, he kicked the party, "Hub" into gear with a great support from his DJ crew,
Kenji Endo (a Japanese DJ/Producer) of the resident DJ from the house of "EUREKA!" which sends out the quality house music and the distinct house groove,and has done some collaborations with some international artists and labels in Tokyo.
4LA now connects music freaks from Sapporo to Tokyo and throughout the nation.

In 2016,he released first EP ”Family Tree” from Kizi Garden Records(Canada,Montreal).
In his work there is a new feeling that was born by experience and environmental changes that have been stacked and that he has been feeling.
It is studded things that can not be seen in such a eye.
There will add deployment built closely and selected sound by his sensibility.
There is born view of the world that can not be expressed only in 4LA.

2013年ヨーロッパへ渡り、自らもロンドン/ノッティングヒルにて6時間セットを披露した。
