In 2017, tracks by beatmakers Seiho, Carpainter and Tofubeats were featured on Kohaku Uta Gassen, the most popular music program in Japan. Tofubeats, who started making music in Kobe using second-hand CDs, finally has got on the top position in the Japanese music industry.
But on his 4th LP “Fantasy Club”, he seems to destroy all the fantasy spread by the show business world. He stopped using loud effects or familiar melodies. Instead, he tightened his rhythms and mostly sings by himself to tell us what he thinks nowadays.
In the Spotify age, when we mostly listen to million hit tunes, we should choose what we really need to hear.
