DE DE MOUSE - 2018 SUMMER TO AUTUMN TOUR - LIVE IN HONG KONG
De De Mouse is the brainchild of bespectacled Tokyo-based studio boffin Daisuke Endo. Following the lead of "chiptune" pioneers (and fellow Tokyoites) YMCK, De De Mouse's sound is characterized by feather-light vocals, housey beats, infectious synth melodies, and lush production values. Unlike his near-contemporaries YMCK -- De De Mouse began life in 2005, two years after YMCK debuted -- Endo does not base his entire oeuvre on soundtracks to games made for the eight-bit NES console. Instead, Endo's layered grooves often take on a darker, more abstract bent that incorporates drum'n'bass and ambient. De De Mouse has won fans in Tokyo's music and fashion scenes: as well as sharing live bills with the likes of Halfby and Buffalo Daughter, he has also soundtracked fashion shows by Takayuki Suzuki, the costume designer of choice of J-pop stars such as Mika Nakajima.
