The sounds of duo Dustin Wong & Takako Minekawa are a coalescence of the complexities of life, with the sheer joy of imaginative creation. Their new album Are Euphoria, continues to dive deeper into the dreamlike technicolor tapestries their songs have always explored, blossoming forward with each cycle of loops. Completely characteristic of their style, Wong and Minekawa achieve a density of textures, timbres, beats, and harmonies while remaining totally weightless, suspended in the air.

Based in Tokyo Japan, Wong and Minekawa are part of a growing DIY community, which celebrates the unexpected and adventurousness. Similar to the likes of Yasuaki Shimizu, Motohiko Hamase, Mono Fontana, Joe Zawinul, and Steve Shehan, Wong and Minekawa use their considerable technical skill to create musical environments with the psychedelic, surreal, and conceptual, and with dexterity and inventiveness. While Minekawa still contributes to J-Pop releases and Wong is still connected to his Baltimore roots, their joyous collaboration is as delightful and challenging as it is innovative.

"Wong and Minekawa seem to have made this album as simply as little kids invent a story together." - Pitchfork

“Fascinating through a percussive complexity that nods to minimalism." - The Wire
