IBOGA Records

日本おけるプログレッシブトランスシーンの歴史は、北欧を拠点に活動する名門IBOGA Recordsの歴史と同義と言えるだろう。SON KITEと並び、北欧プログレッシブトランスを日本に根付かせた立役者のひとりが、このIBOGA Recordsを主宰するEMOKだ。一貫してアンダーグランドに徹したプレイスタイルで、今まで常にシーンの最前線で最高のダンスミュージックをオーディエンスに届け続けてくれた。世界中の野外大小さまざまなフェスティバルにヘッドライナーとして出演するまでに成長した彼のプレイスタイルは、プログレッシブサウンドをベースに、ファンクで、グルービーなパーティチューンを絶妙に織り交ぜ、ダンスフロアを縦横無尽にコントロールする抜群の展開力が魅力。最近はレーベル色の変化に伴い、テクノ要素を随所に取り入れ、ストーリー性の高いセットを楽しませてくれている。2017年にはIBOGA Records の20周年記念パーティーの締めくくりとしてageHaに来日し、壮大なストーリーを描ききった。
今回のPsy-Fi Warming Up Tokyoでも間違いのないパーティーロッカーぶりを見せつけてくれるに違いない!
