Tokyo’s Prettybwoy is considered a pioneer in the Japanese grime and post dubstep scene. His first release was for UK label Big Dada as part of their compilation Grime 2.0 (2013). He’s also released with Chinese label SVBKVLT, and has several EPs with French label POLAAR, including his latest Parallel Lives released in November.
A former resident DJ at Golly Gosh, one of Tokyo’s main bass music clubs, Prettybwoy was raised on the sound of UKG. And he channels that influence into composing his abstract but dance-able club wares. Along the way he’s created sound design for Adidas and Japanese video games.
For our first session of 2019 we present Prettybwoy.
