Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Shintaro Yasuda is an aspiring Music Producer and DJ looking to make his mark in the music industry.
Growing up in a Japanese-American household Shintaro began playing classical piano at the age of three. By the age of five Shintaro was already being recognized as one of the most talented young musicians in Florida. By the time he finished middle-school, Shintaro had picked up new instruments including guitar, bass, drums, saxophone, and clarinet. While growing up, Shintaro participated in performing all around Florida, playing with jazz bands, wind ensembles, orchestras, and as a solo musician.
In his senior year of high-school, Shintaro was very involved in directing musical performances and working with many talented artists and singers. By doing so, Shintaro gained a new interest in writing music and soon decided that he wanted to follow a career path in music production.
After attending a year of college in Miami and starting from the basics of music production, Shintaro decided to take his aspirations to the next level and moved to Los Angeles, California. With all the money he earned from scholarships, competitions, and gigs, Shintaro attended Musician's Institute in Hollywood, California where he graduated with a degree in Audio Engineering. While attending MI, Shintaro's interest in electronic music began to grow greatly. Under the wing of one of his teachers Marc Dold, Shintaro learned many tips and tricks on producing electronic music.
Since then, Shintaro has been working hard on refining his skills and writing original material as well as remixes. In late 2011, Shintaro submitted his first competition entry to Indaba Music where he placed third in remixing Joe Jonas' single "Love Slayer".
Shintaro is now 21 years old living in Los Angeles and is fully committed to working on new original material and remixes in hopes to achieve his first label release. 2013 is a very promising year for Shintaro as he continues to carve his name into music industry. Stay tuned!
