Expe is a solo project by YOSHITAKE EXPE known as the “space guitarist” in the well-known and unique Osaka underground scene lead by groups like the Boredoms and Para. “Emeralda” explores a new category which he calls New World Music with his much influence from his last South American tour perfoming with world class artists such as percussionist MarcosSuzano who is also featured on this album. Many other renowned musicians from Japan backs up this album to form a trulyimaginitive album which sounds like a mixture of world music and space age ambient, but I will leave it up to your ears todecide what this truly is.



YOSHITAKE EXPE is an extraordinary guitarist from the city of Osaka , Japan whose backbone can be found in a Funk Band in the 90s accompanied by American musicians. With the use of numerous compact effectors he has established a unique Space guitar sound whilst processing sound with a story-like flow like that of a DJ with influences found in P-funk, Electro Techno, with a Brian Eno vibe and sensibility of Brazilian music, at times playing the guitar percussively creating improvised robotic house music, at times playing a sensual guitar solo, but at times very organic with a soothing acoustic sound and is guaranteed to take you on a space odyssey. He has collaborated with varying types of artists from visual artists and painters, avant-garde, improvisational, jazz, techno, hip-hop, world music, music for film and soundtracks and is also highly regarded as a club DJ and continues to expand his musical horizon. He has also held an exhibition of sound installations accompanied with a 100 hour performance in art museums. Nutron’s debut album was voted "best album of the year(2003)" by Music Magazine and made an appearance at Fuji Rock Festival in 2004. For the past 5 years he has been playing over 150 shows annually with his solo project. His current projects involve a Space Funk duo with world class drummer Takashi Numazawa, Space Dub Funk with dub mixer Naoyuki Uchida and also formed the famous PARA together with Seiichi Yamamoto.
