DJ Unit DEXPISTOLS have announced they are going on an indefinite hiatus to focus on individual projects. DJ MAAR and DJ DARUMA have led the electronic music scene since 2000 while heading up a successful streetwear brand and art collective. You can read the official annoucement below.
Dear DEXPISTOLS fans and everyone in club/music scene,
Here we would like to announce that DEXPISTOLS decided to go on an indefinite hiatus as of January 31st 2015. As there have been more and more individual projects, we came to a conclusion that right now to focus on what we should do individually is to bring us to a next step.
It's been 10 years since we started - thanks to all of your support and love, we were able to be involved in many different music. Although we merely started DEXPISTOLS to entertain ourselves, we are so grateful that we got so many supports not only from Japan but all over the world.
There have been so many ups and downs in the past, but now we can proudly say we have left something in the scene.
It will be in separate ways but both of us will still be engaged in expressing something and it would be great if you could watch us keep going.
Last but not least, we strongly believe Japanese dance music and club culture have much potential to evolve in the coming future.
By believing so, we will keep doing what we need to do individually.
Thank you very much from the bottom of our heart for your countless support.
Hoping to see you as DEXPISTOLS one day again.
DEXPISTOLS (DJ DARUMA & DJ MAAR)
