YUSUKE SHIOYA

An electronic musician/DJ, he started his career in the Tokyo metropolitan area after being taught DTM by Kunihiko Hatanaka at a certain place in Tokyo before the millennium.

In the early 2000s, he collaborated with Haruo Chikada and DJ TSUYOSHI under the name I.B.I.S., and released several tracks both solo and in various fields.

After the release of his full album “Spread & Destruction” in 2005, he has been DJing under several names, such as Kuroko Head and Yuusuke, and has also released a series of field recordings called “LandEscape,” which were recorded at places he visited in Japan and abroad. He has also begun to explore sounds that transcend genres.

His sound style is strongly influenced by the rave scene of the late 1980’s and 1990’s, and his main focus is “Electronic Music,” which is trancey, experimental, and improvised with electronic instruments.

The same is true for Kunisuke, NTT, Yusuke+Ageishi, Eyes Wide Shut, Marta, SINO, and others who have participated as improvisational units since 2012, including “Game of Experimental” released in 2021. His most recent style of music production has been to use analog rhythm machines and modular synthesizers in combination.

His new LP “Game of Experimental”, released in September 2021, is a simple but primitive and ecstatic musical experience.

電子音楽家/DJ。ミレニアム前の都内某所にて畑中邦彦氏に「打ち込み」の手ほどきを受けたことをきっかけに、首都圏をベースに活動を開始。

2000年代前半期は I.B.I.S名義で近田春男氏やDJ TSUYOSHI氏等と楽曲の共同制作をおこなうなど、ソロ及び各方面でトラックを複数発表。

2005年Full Album「Spread&Destrution」発表後はKuroko Head、Yuusukeなど複数名義でDJ活動を行う傍ら、国内外歴訪した場所で収録されたフィールドレコーディングシリーズ「LandEscape」を発表するなどジャンルを超えた音への探究もおこないはじめる。

サウンドスタイルは、1980年代後半~90年代レイブシーンの影響が強く、電子楽器によるTrance(トランシー)且つExperimental(実験的)でImprovisation(即興的)な「Electronic Music」が主軸となる。

2012年以降即興ユニットとして複数参画している Kunisuke, NTT, Yusuke+Ageishi, Eyes Wide Shut, Marta, SINOなどもそうだが、2021年発表の「Game of Experimental」も含め、近年のスタイルは「楽曲を制作する」より「演奏を録音する」が表現として近く、アナログリズムマシンやモジュラーシンセサイザーをいくつか組み合わせて鳴らすのが、近年彼が最もおこなっている楽曲制作のスタイルであり、まさに2021年9月発表の New LP「Game of Experimental」はシンプル且つプリミティブで恍惚的な音楽体験を求め、旧来の「打ち込み」とは対局ともいえる、「電子楽器の即興演奏&録音」に拘って制作された今の彼らしい作品に仕上がっている。
