"Emufucka e Daisuke Tanabe fazem melodias e beats com jeitinho japonês"

RIO - Emufucka tem 27 anos, usa óculos de aros grossos, tem o cabelo preto escorrendo pelo rosto e fala baixo, olhando para o chão, num restaurante em Shibuya, Tóquio, enquanto o tradutor anota suas palavras. Ele acaba de lançar um novo EP, "Island", o sexto de sua carreira, todos eles on-line. Mesmo tendo começado a produzir há cerca de dois anos, sua música já chamou a atenção de selos independentes como o holandês Black Hole Recordings (fundado pelo estrelado DJ Tiesto), do radialista Gilles Peterson, da BBC, e da ativa grife britânica All Saints, que o incluiu num dos episódios da série on-line "New music cities" sobre os sons da capital japonesa. - O GLOBO

"Back to school for two Tokyo DJs"

Whether it’s an annual soapbox derby or sending a man to the edge of space just because they can, energy-drink manufacturers Red Bull have never been afraid to throw their cash at projects that range from the sublime to the ridiculous. Red Bull Music Academy (RBMA) — the brand’s foray into the world of electronic music, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year — leans firmly toward the former. As the name suggests, it aims to provide an “education” for promising musicians, flying in established names to share advice as well as providing fully stocked studio spaces for participants to collaborate and bounce ideas off each other. - Japan Times

"Emufucka, the prodigy producer straight outta Tokyo"

Early last week, Brussels’ Citywurl Records sent us a promo of Tokyo-based producer-come-beat-maker Emufucka’s latest EP called Select. The six-track effort, a genre-defying mix of cosmic electronic beats and mangled melodies, is fresh, flawless and cerebral. We email-interviewed the 24 year wizard of odds, asking him about everything from the view from his bedroom window to having Count Bass D on his EP. - The WORD


Dutch producer Coco Bryce and Tokyo native Emufucka joined forces for a collaborative 7” on Fremdtunes under the moniker Cocofucka. Both beat connoisseurs are not held back by BPM- or genre restrictions, resulting in a cosmic trip into mesmerizing atmospheres, neck snapping 808-drums and hyped up beat creations.

"Emufucka “el mago del beat” en el Festival Sónar 2014"

El hombre que está detrás de tan extraño y agresivo nombre es un auténtico mago del beat futurista incapaz de hacer daño a nadie. Sus esculturas de electrónica de alta graduación rítmica han creado ya un lógico revuelo en el panorama del hip-hop instrumental. - eikyo.es


Still working on that hot first release.



 Don’t get it twisted, the man behind this somewhat odd moniker is a true future beat wizard that would never harm any animals, humans, or classic sample sources. His blissful electronic-fuelled rhythm sculptures have already created a decent buzz amongst today’s worldwide beats & bass scene and soundscapes always leave enough space for improvisation and that moment of quirky playfulness. Emufucka collaborated with Submerse, Djemba Djemba, DZA, Quarta330, Coco Bryce, King Henry of Virtual Boy, My Dry Wet Mess and Tokyo Hands among others, participated in the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy in New York in 2013 and signed singles and EP's to imprints such as Black Hole Recordings(Dutch record label founded by Tiësto) and Fremdtunes. He also performed at the Sónar Festival (ES), Ultra Music Festival (JP), Vladivostok Rocks Festival (RU), Mas i Mas Festival (ES), The Do-Over (US) and Japan FutureNow (FR). His music has been recognized and praised by the very best in tastemaker and mainstream media. Emufucka has been featured on various large-scale radio programs such as: BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC Radio 6, KCRW, Inter FM, Dublab, Ninja Tune's Solid Steel Radio Show to name a few. Subsequently, Wired, Fact Magazine, All Saints, Dazed & Confused Magazine, O Globo, DJ Mag, XLR8R, Earmilk, Red Bull Music Academy, Red Bull Japan, Japan Times, The Find Magazine and more have covered him.
