The Pink Popo (http://thepinkpopo.com/)
Pink Popo, your party police that has the sickest beats on lockdown! Pink Popo has been on duty since 2008, serving up some sweet, righteous sounds of electro with specks of J-pop to the crowd. Come on down and move to your favorite anime theme songs with a cosplay DJ!
Cyre likes fast music and the extremes, which he proved more than a hundred times in various parties and events over the last fifteen years. Being involved in the demo scene at that time, he began to play music in front of crowds at NAID'96 (North American International Demoparty). This continued with raves and it is in this spirit that he'll play for you at the Otakudance. On the program, J-Core selections and influenced by a strong past of video games.
You're gonna shake your "pon pon pon" all night with Pocaille. He tickles different music styles in his mixes and he's always looking for new sounds to make you dance. A regular at the Otakudance, he's waiting for you this year with his "no compromise" energy.
Prepare for trouble cuz he's makin' it double!
Skicks is back at the Otakudance once again, ready to deliver hardcore beats to make you dance!
