Re:Fuge — Replenish Yourself ◊ Mute The Noise ft.
Made In Japan (Dodgy Yamamoto & Shigeki), Maurice Simon, and Limberini
Presented by Kilo Lounge and resident DJ Maurice Simon, Re:fuge is a party dedicated to showcasing the very best of House and Techno with a soul. It is a party that has no agenda, that believes in people and in music, and stands for a sense of community. It is a party that respects the dance floor because the dance floor never lies.
For this fourth edition of Re:fuge, we are excited to host the inimitable dynamic duo Made In Japan (Dodgy Yamamoto & Shigeki Ito) as special guests for the first time at Kilo, supported by Singapore homeboy Limberini, now based in the UK. Re:fuge resident Maurice Simon completes the lineup for the evening.
Come forth, replenish yourself, and mute the noise.

Made In Japan
Chief of Controlled Chaos & Head Hedonist of the extra-spectaculaire, this once top level member of Ali Baba’s famous 40 thieves & ex-secret service ninja of Japan’s oniwaban intelligence agency has a darker side…Even the keenest of observers would never have guessed that YAMAMOTO, who oft dabbles in nonsensical business & miscellaneous hobbies such as international espionage, would one day become a trailblazing, scene-driving, boogie-inducing, equator-circling dance music elite. A true purveyor of house music, DODGY YAMAMOTO’s profound passion for the lustful & filthy, together with his keen ear for all things deep, dark & dirty, dives into the transcendental depths of underground house.
DODGY YAMAMOTO on the controls means the deepest, filthiest house grooves: techy, tribal rhythms with electronic sub-plots, dashes of dub, hints of jazz and splashes of old-school, all dished up to melt the dance floor.
Over the years he has shared the stage with industry heavyweights Massive Attack, Martin Solveig, Little Louie Vega, U.N.K.L.E, Soul II Soul, and many more. Aside, he is also behind music festivals such as Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival Asia and the Avalon At Large Festival series.
After migrating to Sydney from his native Japan, Shigeki discovered his passion for house music when he hit the clubs on Sydney’s famous Oxford Street scene in 1999. This experience was the catalyst for a sea-change and within a few short years, Shigeki became one of the hottest stars on Sydney’s club music scene after scoring weekly residencies at Sydney’s legendary venues, Stonewall and Midnightshift.
Having established himself as a credible master of the decks for the club crowds week after week, and admired for his impeccable technical mixing and inspiring track choices, Shigeki graduated to bigger events. His dynamic and unique sound captured the hearts and attention of local and interstate promoters and it wasn’t long before Shigeki had some of the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest premier events on his resume: Sydney Mardi Gras Party, Sleaze Ball, Homesexual, Harbour Party, Inquisition and Toybox to name but a few.
In 200, Shigeki made his international debut at Happy in Singapore and this spurred his subsequent relocation to the island 3 years later. Having relocated to one of Southeast Asia’s nightlife hubs, Shigeki was able to grow his international following — he has been a regular guest DJ for the Atlantis cruises, and has spun at Singapore’s Play, Rewind, House, Stereolab and Velvet Underground as well as internationally in Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Bali, Hong Kong, Osaka, Beijing, Shanghai and Taipei.
From 2010 to 2012 Shigeki worked at KUDÉTA Singapore at Marina Bay Sands SkyPark as a resident DJ. He regularly receives bookings for high profile events involving the world’s leading brands such as Adidas, Gucci and BMW. Outside of the DJ console, Shigeki compiles unique music playlists for Scarlet Hotel and CINQ hair salon. He was also in the cast of The Hossan Leong Show in 2009, 2010, and 2011 at the Drama Centre Theatre.
Having recently made the decision to focus on music full-time, Limberini’s sound is spreading across London. If he’s not playing at The Cuckoo Club or MODE you can find him headlining RAPTUR3, a nomadic rave night that’s gathering serious pace within the warehouse party scene. If you like your music smooth and contoured with a deep tech feel then make sure you get down early to catch his warm-up set.
