But they were people who, after everyone timed the reaction of mine and theirs, held out their hands toward me first to tell me to “Let’s do it together!”, which I was really grateful of and they were “the” V.I.P with a feeling as if Scorsese had come to recruit me.

I had a feeling like “The first album was published from V.I.P and the education V.I.P has given me is nonetheless great. When it comes to reggae music, mixing down and mastering should be Jamaica’s.”. I was actually brought to Jamaica and told how to spend time in Jamaica, what to be careful of, how to play around, all these along with how to proceed with studio works or how to make an appointment. The first original album staying at V.I.P, the only thing about it not owned by me, can be a form of proof for that (V.I.P is the predecessor that has educated me). Then when I was ready for reggae, friends of mine there were kind of shocked momentarily as “Can you really be up to reggae?”, a feeling I understood too well. But they were people who, after everyone timed the reaction of mine and theirs, held out their hands toward me first to tell me to “Let’s do it together!”, which I was really grateful of and they were “the” V.I.P with a feeling as if Scorsese had come to recruit me. I really thank those who were committed to and spent time all the time with me, when they did not yet know if I would be something. BOY-KEN and SHIBA-YANKEE were there who might’ve wondered why 卍LINE should be upcoming next after all that, the feelings I’ve shouldered also to be now eventually grateful of the presence of V.I.P crews who haven’t at all complained to what I was supposed to do. What a difference of (bodily) temperatures between those who have told me as, “Another work to be done for you!.” and the outside! But while V.I.P was tough, it was warmer and hotter, and thus for me, yes. I was working with them feeling more of pressure than now, but year by year working with them became much easier. Or freer.

Everything started since my encounter with him. If I hadn’t met with him on that day, or without him, I would not have been the current me, honestly.

Having met with Magachin of HECTIC at the age of 19 has greatly affected me, one of the most important encounters in my life, as one with TERRY for music. A building named MUSE near J TRIP BAR in Nishiazabu, as far as I can remember, like Gotham City, at a club located in the basement of which I met Magachin for the first time. Of course, I knew him in magazines, so I thought, “Ouch, I’ve just come across someone of HECTIC.”. Our conversation went like “What are you going to do tomorrow?”, “Nothing in particular, sir.”, “Well, then why don’t you come over to our office?”, where I thought, “Hell, the Harajuku office alighted!”. Then he introduced everyone to me. All of the members sticking around Magachin. For example, Mr. Omura of Onegram, Spreme, Jun of Kakurai or members of K Dub Shine or other around that. Urahara, too. I have been connected to black music and fashion for this. Then my life in Tokyo was greatly spurred, one big trigger for me to have too much fun. Having met with Magachin is the one for me to start determining my own fashion or lifestyle, with me all the time copying Magachin’s style. Sweat shirt / pants, or money not hauled into the wallet but just into one of the pockets, and that bare. I just copied all of his styles, what he’d got, what were in his room, say TV, everything to be owned by me, too. Everything started since my encounter with him. If I hadn’t met with him on that day, or without him, I would not have been the current me, honestly.

I talked with Lee Perry in the form of interview, but he wouldn’t listen to me (hey, man). When I said, “I am a Japanese buffalo soldier.”, he ignored to say, “My house was on fire the other day.”, or something. I was to capture such one-way talks of his as the message from the heaven (goodness).

I was to capture such one-way talks of his as the message from the heaven (goodness). He can perform two-hour lives at the age of 80, while he really can’t move up and down like the young, somehow shaking his body for his lives like that. With mirrors attached to from the top of his head to shoes to cause great reflections, you know. By the direction of such reflection, he some of the time can be like a “luminary”, or even a “spirit” (horrified), whose radiation sometimes thrown into the audience seats the fans really “worshiped”, with a great impact, indeed.
