KuniyukiPresented by We Are Europe
At the age of 14, Japanese sound designer and producer Kuniyuki Takahashi decided to buy his first synthesizer, after constantly listening to artists like YMO, Kraftwerk and Brian Eno. This decision signalled his embarkment onto a decades-long musical journey that has led him to grow out into one of the best-kept musical secrets from Japan.
International DJ’s such as Joe Claussell, DJ Cosmo and Jimpster to name but a few, have been falling over themselves when they heard Kuniyuki’s well-produced tracks. They consist of a distinctly soulful type of electronic music, that mines variations in percussion, the acoustic avenues of flute, piano and strings, and vintage synths and digital controllers alike.
