The Lowbrows - IBIZA, Shanghai

THE LOWBROWS are a creative unit that was formed in 2005,by CHAKI and EMI.

CHAKI masters a variety of instruments, including the guitar, wooden bass and turntables. He has been performing as a DJ for many years as well. EMI shows off her talent, with her trained classical music background. Their edgy sound is always looking toward the future, and gives you a sense of innovation with every listen! Being an electro/dance duo “made in Tokyo”, gives THE LOWBROWS a unique presence in the world today.

THE LOWBROWS have been gaining worldwide acclaim with achievements like: being interviewed by Dazed & Confused from the UK, being featured on famous blogs, having their music showcased on playlists by many DJs, and more! With an amazing reputation for their remix work, they are receiving a rush of offers from both Japanese and international artists. As a DJ, CHAKI has performed with Digitalism, The Bang Gang Deejays, Hot Chip, Friendly Fires, N.A.S.A., Danger and many more.

Their first EP “THE LOWBROWS EP”, was released in March 2007 (and is no longer available). In February 2008, an unreleased track “Melody And Shudder” was remixed by DEXPISTOLS and included on their mix CD “Lesson 4”. THE LOWBROWS gained public attention as they were the only Japanese artists featured on it.

The Lowbrow是在2005年成立的一个独立自由电子制作组合,成员有Chaki与EMI二人。

他们的Electro/Dance组合made in Tokyo让The Lowbrows迅速成名于世。 

他们的音乐比起很多Indie-Electro/Nu-Electro作品更具多元音乐性与Song-Oriented肌理,而不只是单调 Electro节拍与音色重复拼贴堆栈的产物。甚至有些时候,The Lowbrows作品中更蛰伏着摇滚乐的张力与有机性,好比宛如Justice遇上Black Sabbath的"Love You"便是一例。

The Lowbrows已经在全世界范围内开始活动,他们得到Trash Menagerie等海外知名Blog与英国Dazed & Confused杂志大力推荐。让他们的音乐在全世界内被知名DJ播放。这些混搭的交叉工作让他们从日本到全世界都获得了不小的名气。作为DJ,Chaki和Digitalism、The Bang Gang Deejays、Hot Clip、Friendly Fires、N.A.S.A,Danger等人一起表演。为The Lowbrows也建立起了更高的知名度。 

他们的首张EP《The Lowbrows》在2007年出版(现已停止出版)。在次年2月,其中的一首未出版曲目Melody and Shudder被Dexpistols重新混音并出版了在他的混音专辑Lesson 4。他们作为日本本土的音乐人在全世界获得了令人瞩目的关注。
