Toshio Matsuura presents his fortnightly two hour music program, WW Tokyo. One of the founding members of the U.F.O. (United Futures Organisation), Toshio has remained a leader in the Tokyo nightlife scene for years.
For this show Toshio celebrates the new sounds of Silent Poets as well as the new movement in the Jazz and alternative scene created by Japans young talents.
Since his debut release in 1992, Silent Poets has fostered melancholic emotional dub. His works have been released by labels such as Yellow Productions, 99 Records and Atlantic Records and his track ‘Moment Scale’ features in the historical Ibiza Chillout masterpiece ‘Café del Mar’.
Ai Kuwabara is a pianist and Jazz Japan album of the year award winner. Born in 1991, Kuwabara has performed globally, with shows at both the Tokyo and Montreux Jazz Festival and has recently released her 5th album “Somehow, Someday, Somewhere”.
MELRAW is the solo project of multi-Instrumentalist, Kohei Ando. As an active member of the Japanese experimental Soul band, Wonk, Ando sets to release his first solo album “Pilgrim” in December.
Ayatake Ezaki combines music and fashion through his brand “Epistroph” and playing keys for the Japanese experimental Soul band, Wonk.
This show is live and open to the public, with Toshio taking the energy of Tokyo in real time and broadcasting it to the world with his eclectic music selection.
