What do you do?
Where are you from?
Tokorozawa city, Saitama .
What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
The XX at FUJI ROCK in 2017. There was a great connection with the audience. I am quite sure that people who were there would understand this. I could feel that the player was so excited as well. Even though it was my first time making a guest appearance at a festival, I could understand at once why the artists and the audience wanted to be there.
Which sub-cultures have influenced you?
Probably manga (comic books). I read all the work from Minoru Furuya. It was not like his series were popular at that time but I happened to know his work when I read the books that my middle school teacher had previously confiscated from his/her students.
Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
It would definitely be WWW X in Shibuya. It feels like the sound waves are exploding. At that place, the sound can be so loud that makes it easier for the artists to do any of their performances. Also, I believe that the creation of atmosphere is awesome.
If you could be on the line up with anybody in history?
Jorja Smith. She is not a person from history, but I like her voice and face as well. It would be my pleasure if she could sing some hooks with me.
If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
American artist, XXXTentacion. I was interested in him the most and I wanted to look directly into his eyes. Now that I don’t have any ways to get to know what kind of person he was, so I want to build my own understanding of him.
Your greatest unsung hero in music?
I AM DDB. My friend who lives in London told me about them. I have been following them since then.
