Yoshitaka Nishimura (西村宜隆) (born February 9, 1979, Kyushu), better known as DJ YOSHITAKA, is a composer for Konami's line of Bemani games. DJ YOSHITAKA has been making solo songs since the release of Beatmania IIDX 11: IIDX RED, though he has had previous BEMANI involvement as a member of Osamu Migitera's Des-ROW group. He often composes for the Beatmania IIDX and the Pop'n music series, and then began composing for the Guitar Freaks & DrumMania and the Dance Dance Revolution series on 2005 and 2007, respectively. DJ YOSHITAKA still often works with Des-ROW for some Pop'n music songs. In the REFLEC BEAT series, DJ YOSHITAKA regularly appears alongside fellow composer Sota Fujimori as a double act, VENUS.

DJ YOSHITAKA's Bemani Music Foundation artist page reveals that he likes taking trips, fine days, cappuccino, Shibuya, Motorbikes, Vegetable Pancakes and people who are kind. It says that he dislikes rainy seasons and people who are cold. [1]

Along with dj TAKA, L.E.D., Sota Fujimori, Ryu☆, kors k, and 猫叉Master, DJ YOSHITAKA is part of Beatnation Records.

DJ YOSHITAKA has been one of the sound producers for Beatmania IIDX since the release of Beatmania IIDX 11: IIDX RED. He became the sound director of the REFLEC BEAT series since 2010. In 2013, he became the producer of SOUND VOLTEX II -infinite infection-, a sequel to the original KONAMI game SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH.
