"Hailing from Yokohama, Japan, but currently living in New York, So has been making music in his home studio for over 4 years now. Utilizing his collection of vintage Roland drum machines, some guitars, a Theremin, and sounds from his kitchen and fax machine, so has constructed in Nubus a new audio plateaux resting somewhere in between ambient melodicism and structured noise. So is continually trying to reconcile his love of club music with more 'non-body' musics. While his first CD is specifically aimed at the dancefloor, Nubus seeks out an area somewhere just outside the club after closing. Here one can hear traces of Cologne (Studio 1), structured noise (a la Ryoji Ikeda), and Japanese pop. There are other musical dichotomies that are constantly being negotiated as well: 'order vs. chaos', 'pop vs. un-pop', 'mechanics vs. organics'. In the end, So demonstrates how futile these dichotomies ultimately are at the end of the millennium, and brings us to a greater understanding and appreciation of music through music."
