Born in Tokyo, raised in Tanzania and England, Shing02 came up in the independent SF Bay Area scene in the early ’90s. Over the course of his independent career starting in 1995, he has collaborated with various musicians, most notably with the late Japanese producer Nujabes. As the inventor of the Vestax Faderboard, he toured around for a few years with the free-jazz trio, Kosmic Renaissance. Recently, he has released the FTTB mix series with DJ Icewater, and “S8102” with Sauce81 soon to be completed.
