“Tatsuya’s overall mission is to tell a genuine story audibly, but since taking the brave step to conquer the crimes against electronic dance music, Dark Model has proven victorious in merging the soundtrack-to-dance floor sound. His first album, self-titled Dark Model, is an audio storyboard or sorts, and unfolds just as you’d expect from a superhero sound engineer: thrilling adventure, dire downfalls, and triumphant victory.”
This is a quote from a great article “Gotham City’s Electronic Hero – Dark Model” on Dance Music Northwest. I want to give a shout-out the author Darby Bundy for writing the awesome review!
