DJ Tsuyoshi Suzuki, best know for his seminal Matsuri label, which brought his unique...
... take on PSY-Trance to the world has redefined himself and has come up with a new, and excellent concept which he has called Joujouka.
This takes the form of a band, live instruments, singers and a rocking stage show. The band has completed a few remixes for some of the high profile acts in Japan and have played many live shows including the Rainbow and Mount Fuji festivals and now turn their attention to the rest of the world.
They have two Eps taken from the album; Relax and NEW Asians with remixes from Starecase and Justin Robertson respectively, which have already been causing a splash at the WMC in Miami, with support from DJs such as Timo Maas, Maurice and Graham Gold the story has just begun.
The album moves effortlessly through the genres of dance, from the HipHop-influenced title track, through banging 4 x 4 monsters such as the mighty X-Rock and E-Wire. The rocky 'Big Beat' mood of Image and then the cool Electronica mood of All The Angels, with singer In Essence who makes the track sound eerily like an Asian Bjork meets an Asian Aphex Twin.This is a confident debut from Mr Tsuyoshi Suzuki and his friends.
