about

After a long sojourn, a true Asiatic, aural nomad and supremely passionate musical alchemist, Tokyo-based producer/ DJ, owner of the label, Crosspoint, Moochy a.k.a. J.A.K.A.M. (Juzu A.K.A. Moochy), has arisen once again, with quite a unique project for 2015 entitled, Counterpoint.


Since releasing his last album, Re:Momentos "Movements" 4 years ago, J.A.K.A.M. has traveled the world, to a wide range of regions such as the Middle East, Latin America and African continents, absorbing as much of the esoteric vibes in each culture and heritage as possible, and also collaborating with many local musicians. This new project, Counterpoint is the fruits of his eclectic musical journey. Each EPs are J.A.K.A.M.'s postcards from the edge, enthralled in potent sonic stimulus and messages, aimed at penetrating the deep consciousness.

In Counterpoint, J.A.K.A.M. delivers his unique take on a new tangent, a genuine fusion of "counter point" musical integration that intertwines the diverse cultures with his Far-Eastern heritage and his own ever-evolving, refined, signature musical philosophy. Connecting the dots as only he can, this project tries to place a new "counter point", a new point of reference where a genuine evolutionary, creative energy reigns supreme.
