A simple dedication to the preservation, continuation, and influences of Shibuya-kei culture. Mostly music, but other topics may sneak in from time to time. News and reviews, artist spotlights, and more. Pizzicato Five, Cornelius, Cibo Matto, Takako Minekawa, Kahimi Karie, Momus, Fantastic Plastic Machine, Towa Tei, Buffalo Daughter, their influences and those they influenced.

    Hi my Friend,

    My name is PB I am a French singer-songwriter moving to the UK to start my career. I’m a huge manga fan and actually mix style is a mix between Jotara Kujo from Jojo Bizarre Adventure and a French mariner 🙂 It’d like to connect with other otaku and even with Japanese music blogs, I wanted to know if you could help me in this way! I also find that there is a sort of Towa Tei smell to my music, tell me what you think! 🙂
    Here is my first track ‘RISE’:

    Hope you’ll enjoy it!

    This is a great site! I did a Shibuya-kei themed DJ night in New York for a while called Tokyo Teleport Station. I still do it occasionally when asked. So glad other people are keeping this underrated style alive!
