Taiyo is an effect of an online friendship that lasted for many years without any physical meeting in the real world. And the friends are two techno legends – Marc Romboy and Ken Ishii.
It all started in the 90s when Marc was running his own radio show. Being impressed by Ken’s masterpiece track called Extra, Romboy wanted to present Japanese’s DJ mix on-air. They stayed in contact and after some time founded themselves producing a song together which obviously was not enough so they went on to record a full-length album. And it was a perfect move – Taiyo turns out to be a deep and classy techno record. But well, could it be different?
