Two of Japan’s most renowned DJs are set to invest in VALORANT, and their team will feature Fisker, a former player of Crazy Raccoon, FAV Gaming, and most recently Sengoku Gaming.
JAPAN – NOEZ FOXX, a newly-established esports organization founded by Repezen Foxx’s DJ Foy and DJ Waki, is set to enter VALORANT with a roster featuring former Crazy Raccoon and Sengoku Gaming player Hideki “Fisker” Sasaki.
Repezen Foxx, formerly known as Repezen Earth, is a Japanese DJ group formed in 2015 by DJ Shacho, DJ Foy, DJ Ginta, DJ Waki, and DJ Maru. The group is known for their energetic performances and their ability to mix a variety of genres of music, including hip-hop, EDM, and pop, with more than 4 million subscribers on YouTube.
Their foray into the esports scene marks an exciting crossroads between the worlds of music and gaming, following the footsteps of other huge names from the music industry, such as Steve Aoki (Rogue), Snoop Dogg (FaZe Clan), Jay Chou (J Team), Post Malone (Envy), Drake (100 Thieves), JJ Lin (Team SMG), and more.
Repezen Foxx’s influence extends beyond music. They have become one of the most popular DJ groups in Japan, touring extensively throughout the country as well as internationally to Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and Korea.
Fisker will be joining NOEZ FOXX as its first member following his recent departure from Sengoku Gaming just a few days ago. During his time with Sengoku Gaming, he made it to the main events of both VCL Japan Split One and Two, notably finishing in fourth place in the former.
In a recent tweet, Fisker expressed his excitement about the new chapter in his career, saying, “My name is Fisker, and I have decided to join NOEZFOXX! In a few months I will have a full body tattoo, not just on my left arm! I will continue to pursue my dream and go around the world as I always have! Please support me!”
As NOEZ FOXX gears up for competition, they are actively seeking additional players to round out their roster through an open recruitment process. Prospective players must be at least 16 years old, have reached a Radiant rank, and have the ability to communicate fluently in Japanese. Interestingly, the recruitment form asks applicants the unique question: “do you want to be popular?”
The requirements to apply can be found on the official NOEZ FOXX website here.
