Guys!
Awesome news!!

"It has been announced that Nakata Yasutaka will be remixing Australian-born pop sensation Kylie Minogue’s latest single “Into the Blue”. The remix will be included as a Japanese bonus track on her upcoming album Kiss Me Once, to be released on March 19th. This is the second time Nakata has done a remix for Minogue — the first was 2010’s “Get Outta My Way" from her album Aphrodite."



Do you remember the first awesome remix?:


It reminds me a bit of the Remix he did to Mini's "Are you ready"


which sounds really nice, acoustic robots or something
like a grown-up dreamin dreamin xD



So, what do you listen to when you run out of Nakata??
Especially after Saori and Aira have long kicked the bucket,
should i suppose in part due to copyright-related issues??

Ram Rider usually does the trick, but you know there's no much,
tempura kidz are really enjoyable so far, and TeddyLoid has been working really awesome stuff too.
Updates and suggestions, please :D

Good day!

A creative collection, called Ultranimbus, will be hosting an art show celebrating J-pop and K-pop in Los Angeles this month.

As a bonus, the event will serve to release a new zine, called "YSTK," filled with collaborations within Ultranimbus to celebrate Yasutaka Nakata and the acts he helps to produce. The zine will also be released with an eleven track cover album with covers of songs from CAPSULE, MEG, Perfume, and Kyary.

Check out the tracklist and event details under the cut:

Perfume's interview with Blouin Artfinfo caused a little bit of controversy with their comment about a gay couple that came to meet them at a show, so I thought I'd post it here to get some of contemode's thoughts about it. Enjoy!

The maze of hallways inside Japan national broadcaster NHK’s TV studios often feel like the backstage area of a concert hall — but at no time more so, perhaps, than during pre-recording sessions for regular TV show “Music Japan.” For while the show introduces some of the country’s leading rock and pop acts, it is the presenters that have become one of the nation’s biggest sensations in the last few years.

Ayaka Nishiwaki, Ayano Omoto and Yuka Kashino, better known as “A-chan,” “Nocchi” and “Kashiyuka” to their fans, make up J-Pop dance unit Perfume. All in their mid-twenties, the usually technicolor-dressed trio formed some 13 years ago in Hiroshima, starting life as an Akihabara idol group, but quickly emerging as an electronic dance unit, thanks to the knob-twiddling wizardry of producer Yasutaka Nakata.
