Meet DJ Kanon, a Japanese DJ with an amazing “Hardcore For Life” back tattoo who we ran into on the street in Harajuku. DJ Kanon is known in Tokyo for her DJing at Tokyo Gabber (hardcore techno music) events, including playing some parties alongside Harajuku favorites Sisen and Takuya Angel.
Kanon’s outfit features a top from the resale shop Cult Party, a lace tiered skirt from Japanese brand One Spo, black knee-high socks, and pumps from CoCoLuLu. Kanon’s fun backpack is from the indie Japanese brand Omocha Party (sold at Spinns Harajuku). Her other accessories – some of which came from Nude ‘N Rude and Gilfy – include a lip piercing, star earrings, a choker with a heart charm, and several bracelets (the most noticeable of which is hot pink and says “BITCH”).
Kanon told us that her favorite fashion brands are one spo and Vivienne Westwood and her favorite music is – of course – Gabber. If you’d like to know more about her upcoming events, please check out the official DJ Kanon Blog.
