fumiya tanaka



Fumiya Tanaka is one of leading japanese techno artists. He founded Torema records, the first independent dance track labels in Japan, in 1993, and has been very busy Djing all around the world to promote his different projects; Mix-Up vol.4 (Sony 1996), Unknown Possibility vol.1 (Torema 1997), Unknown Possibility vol.2 (Tresor 2001), Mix Sound Space (Torema 2002).

Fumiya Tanaka has been regarded as one of the legendary DJ/artists in Techno over 15 years. He has been doing numerous projects such as his private label “TOREMA RECORDS”, his recent label “op.disc” (co-running with Yoshihiro HANNO), and his famous party “CHAOS” (in Tokyo and Osaka), and through his long running career, he has been successfully expressing the possibilities of music. His unique style is focused on “minimal” techno, but through his play, he pulls out the beauty, the depth and the thickness of music and turns “minimal” into “maximum”. This is one of the reasons why he is still at the top.

In 2007, Fumiya released an epoch-making DVD “via”, which contains his live DJ MIX with a real time audio commentary. This release vividly shows his music/play as the result of physical reactions and continuous thinking. As his other recent works, he has been working on his live unit, “DARTRIIX” with RADIQ aka Yoshihiro HANNO and has already released two EPs and a full length album on op.disc.

Now he is planning to start a new label called “Sundance” and it is scheduled to be launched very soon.
