Amongst all the world renown Japanese DJs and beatmakers such as DJ Krush, DJ Honda, Muro and Kentaro, another talent who’s made a name for himself worldwide in the last few years has to be MITSU THE BEATS - the alias of a diminutive yet very talented Sendai City native who stormed everyone’s favourite charts with his first solo LP, “A New Awakening”, and his group GAGLE’s first album. Signed to the Jazzy Sport label in Japan, Mitsu the Beats soon found himself being name checked by the likes of Pete Rock, Gilles Peterson, Rich Medina and DJ Spinna after releasing his LP. His success and reputation also brought the attention of many international music labels who called on him for remix and production duties - including Chocolate Industries, Blue Note, Ubiquity and Universal and artists such as Jazzy Jeff, Madlib, Kero One, PPP and Diverse etc.
In 2009 May 27th , he just released long awaited his 2nd solo album [ Word To The Wise ] featuring Jose James, Maspyke, Mathematik, Elzhi, Black Spade, Grap Luva, LMNO, etc
