BULLJUN from El Barrio NY + KIYOSHI TONDA from A.Y.B. force + DAISUKE NAKAI engineer & multi player = TONDA TORIO!!
The new unit, TONDA TORIO, is uniformed by the 3 people above. KIYOSHI TONDA leads the unit, who had been involved in every single project from the days of "Abnormal Yellow Band" and the former unit "DJ Lark & Funk Messengers". Of course, "Lost Breaks" and "Bulljun & El Barrio 2016" to name a few in recent works.
Numerous rare vinyls were dug out from some record shops in US by BULLJUN. They are restored by TONDA using his AKAI MPC2000 and E-MU SP 1200, then NAKAI arranges them with lyrical guitar to give a hint of nostalgia.
A total of 13 songs, TONDA TORIO describes it as "Mellow & Slow Bullet". It is 250% down tempo and has touch of healing that distinguishes it from daily party groove, but still retains their essence of bold and strong drum beat. It is, so to speak, the groove of Saudade.
Their sound may be referred to as "adult school” which will be filtered into the heart of grown up B-Boy and B- Girl as well…
