Born in 1987 Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture Japan, EMUFUCKA is one of the freshest DJ/beatmakers based in Tokyo.
His musical career as a beatmaker started in 2007, and the following year EMUFUCKA was signed by Slye Records, a hip-hop label that features the indie label arights Entertaiment inc, providing his tracks with some of their artists.
EMUFUCKA's musical reach has gone way beyond Japan, with his tracks being featured on the Santa Monica-based KCRW 89.9 FM in California, along with Cosmopolyphonic Radio, a Japanese podcast offering fresh sounds from the world over, and the Lithuanian webmix radio show Mondayjazz amongst others.
His original sound transcends genre, creating an image of cosmic space and stereo, floating in the jet black outer space, lined with thick drums, dope bass, dusty noise and synthesizer sounds... his space sound restores a sensitive, melancholic yet soulful feel to beat music.
EMUFUCKA is the new generation Japanese beatmaker that you can’t take your eyes off.
And in March 2011, as awaited, he will release his first album with Count Bass D, Tableek from Maspyke and others, called Select EP from the Belgium Record Label Citywurl.
"This EP is going get his name established on the world scene"
Count Bass D (Atlanta, US)
"I just returned from a successful contribution of scuttling the empire's boat, when I was inspired by a dope beat from EMUFUCKA to compose 'the heater'. my goal is to destroy babylon, and EMUFUCKA makes dope tunes to build and destroy to!!! BIG UP!!"
Tableek (Maspyke / Burnt Berry Music) (Massachusetts, US)
"EMUFUCKA mixes boombap claps and snares with gritty synth sounds. A must have for beat lovers! From start to finish!"
Anthony Valadez (KCRW 89.9 FM)

"Select EP is a perfect introduction of the freshest talent EMUFUCKA from Japan. His beats have a good balance of melodies, ambiance and experimentation + banging' drums and soul. If you like Dilla to everything between Shlohmo, you should check out this kid."
