Our hosts discuss everything from inspirations to future plans with these talented musicians from all over the world – Lena (from Avocado Boys), Kufura, Electronicole, and Sugar Joiko

1) Kufura

Background

  • Producer and DJ, starting releasing music around 4 years ago.
  • Collaborates constantly with other artists, either producing, featuring, 0r mixing.
  • From Istanbul-Turkey, but regularly gets inspiration from Japan and Japanese culture.
  • The video for his song “Don’t DIE on me” was filmed all over Japan.

Song: No Sense

2) AVOCADO BOYS

Background

  • Band from Nagoya, Japan, formed in 2017.
  • Heavily influenced by jazz, hiphop, etc.  The group wants to create happy and uplifting music that highlights the universal feeling of joy.
  • Released their first mini album “Wake Me Up!” last year.
  • Did crowd funding for their newest album that they are working on now.
  • The group wanted to invest more in their second project than their first. They also wanted to create that experience and collaboration with their fans.
  • After achieving their goal with time to spare, the group hopes to release their newest work within the next few months.
  • Are known by fans for their classy, “adult”-sounding music that portrays a grown-up feeling of happiness that is not often heard of.

Song: Angels

Background

  • Artist name is Joi Keeling, but adopted the pseudonym Sugar Joiko while performing in Japan. There’s a cute backstory to the name: her friends affectionately called her “Joi-ko” (like a term of endearment to call young) and when her brother found out that that one of her friends would call her “sugar sugar Joi-ko,” he told her it should be her stage name.
  • Grew up enjoying games which featured Japanese artists, so she holds Japanese music and culture dear to her heart.
  • Is looking forward to fusing Japanese and English lyrics together in future releases
