Danny Krivit on DJ-ing in JapanDanny Krivit of Body and Soul on DJing in Japan: "They basically like more of the rare stuff, I basically play classics that maybe might not get over here, not everybody knows that one, or maybe only a few heads know that. Whereas in Japan, they seem to know more of the rare stuff. They are more into variety and rarities. I certainly have very extreme tastes in music. What I consider the best in what I'm playin, is usually the best reaction I'm getting there. It's very rewarding. "
