日本とアメリカのアンダーグランドを繋げる国際Music Event!来日するSophia SazeとテクノレジェンドKuniyuki Takahashi (live)をラインアップとする！
COLLISION PRESENTS KUNIYUKI TAKAHASHI AND SOPHIA SAZE
Tokyo, Japan, June 23, 2018— COLLISION MOVEMENT releases the artist lineup for their third underground music and arts event held at Circus, Shibuya on June 23rd from 11pm to 5am. As a result of the growing demand for Japanese artists in the US and vice versa, COLLISION established the mission to showcase and bridge the US and Japan’s underground music scenes by curating a lineup of both Japanese and US-based artists.
Kuniyuki Takahashi is a sound designer, producer and DJ based in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. Starting his musical career in 1994, he quickly accelerated in the music industry releasing a mini album as FRR HIVE three years later. Considered a Japanese Tech-House legend and pioneer of the underground music scene, Takahashi has captured the attention of International DJ's Joe Claussell, Dego, DJ Cosmo, Jimpster amongst many others. COLLISION is honored to host him as the Japanese headliner.
Sophia Saze is a musician and multi-media artist born in Tbilisi, Georgia, now based in Brooklyn, New York. DJ-ing and producing for 6 years, Saze launched her record label Dusk & Haze in 2017. Her recent releases have gained attention in the print versions of both DJ Mag, Groove-Magazin, & MixMag, as well as two airplays on BBC Radio 1 & NTS Radio, amongst others. As part of the COLLISION mission to introduce the Japanese audience to cutting-edge American artists, we are excited to bring her out to Tokyo for her Japan debut.
COLLISION was founded by the three Higa siblings who were born in Tokyo but grew up in an international community that exposed them to various subcultures in Japan. Upon moving to the US, they discovered the absence of Japanese underground music and wanted to share their knowledge. After having attended many events in both the US and Japan, the Higa siblings joined forces to create an event with a greater cultural purpose connecting the best of both worlds. Collision has since then evolved into a platform for music enthusiasts and artists alike to explore a cross-cultural and interdisciplinary experience with a mission entrenched in the US-Japan relationship.
ATTENTION : Please refrain from taking photos or videos. This is a 18+ event.
