Japanese Electronica - Motocompo Founder Dr. Usui's Solo Album Now on JapanFiles.com

August 24, 2008 - Over the past ten years Dr. Usui has been a leading figure in Tokyo's new wave and electro-pop scene. In 1998, he and his band MOTOCOMPO were instrumental figures in the Tokyo new wave revival along with bands such as Polysics. With their debut "Desktop Romancer", MOTOCOMPO also pioneered the 8-bit "chiptune" technopop sound that has become the signature of recent groups like YMCK.

Since then, Dr. Usui has continued to develop MOTOCOMPO's sound, introducing elements of disco, house and electro, culminating in a successful 2007 UK tour. He has also been active as a producer and remixer for numerous bands and as the owner of leading electro-pop label Poplot Records, releasing both domestic bands and international artists such as DMX Krew and Swedish electronic musician Andreas Tilliander.

Dr. Usui's solo debut "Datajockey" confirms his position as one of Japan's top electro musicians and one of the few who can make truly world-standard electro music.
