Takahiro Kido, the member of Anoice and the other projects (RiLF, films, mokyow, cru) who created over 100 tunes a year as a music composer, mixing engineer, and producer, will release his new EP 'Inside-Out Tokyo' on the same day as his upcoming new album 'The New World'.
In contrast to the chamber music made with a piano and strings section in 'The New World' album, this EP is formed by catchy electronica sound with electric rhythm for the most part. In addition, as with the album, Anoice members including Yuki Murata, joined as the instrumentalists. Emmeline Pidgen took charge of the illustration, and KASHIWA Daisuke did the mastering works. This album will be optimal for not only fans of Takahiro Kido but also all who will hear electronica music for the first time.
This EP contains original versions for 'Hidamari Song' which is the soundtrack of the movie 'Tsukiji Wonderland' of Shochiku, 'Chuo-Line in Vain' which has been used on the spot of Ueda Harlow, 'Komorebi Forest' which is the theme tune of the event video 'Heart of Smile', for commemorating the 80th anniversary of Toshima Ward in Tokyo, and 'Sayonara Tokyo' which has been used on a spot for Tokyo Medical and Dental University.
This is the collaboration of lovely melodies and a beautiful sound with which anyone will fall in love. We recommend you to purchase this EP together with Takahiro Kido's new album 'The New World'.
