Run by two Tokyo based Frenchmen, Jazzy Couscous is a new label rooted in
a love for Jazz and the urban movements it spawned, from House to Hip-Hop
and everything in-between.
House music nerd with a Hip-Hop background, Alixkun is the DJ of the crew.
You can catch him playing numerous clubs around Tokyo and writing for
Japanese house encyclopedia House Definitive. His journalism and highly
regarded sets led him and the team to be invited on stage for Dommune,
Japan's Boiler Room equivalent.
Klodio, on the other hand, is an upcoming producer to keep an eye on in 2015.
Soon to drop his debut release "Toktroit", he pays tribute to some of his biggest
musical influences, Detroit and Tokyo; combining a clear love and appreciation
for the early UR House sound, with a fresh Tokyoite vibe that will take you on a
full speed night drive through the neon highways. A versatile soul head, equally
at home with House, Techno, Hip-Hop, and even Drum'n'Bass, Klodio knows no
boundaries when it comes to expressing his deep Jazz infused roots.
This year will see various projects in which Alixkun will express his soft spot for
Japanese rare-grooves and Japanese House music. Also planned for release is
a second EP of fine House music by another French producer, so stay tuned for
more by Jazzy Couscous!
