HUMANDRONE is a project by Japanese producer Takaaki Shibuya.
He grew up in Kamakura-City near the coast referred to as the "Oriental Miami Beach".
While at highschool he bought 2 decks, but unfortunately there wasn’t much of a dance music scene in his home city unlike the "real Miami beach".
He then went to college in Tokyo and started Djing and making tracks,
and also established his own label called "Canaria Schallplatten" with DJ Mary&Kent.
Humandrone makes rhythm machine-conscious tracks through the full use of hardware equipment – he is influenced by Mantronix, Blake Baxter, Carl Craig, Egyptian Lover, and of course a loads of acid classics.
He calls his style of music "science-fictional street music".
His tracks have been played by Andrew Weatherall, Glimpse, Ralph Lawson, Jimpster, and many more.
He also works with a mixing engineer Hayato Iguchi who is a key-person in the production of HUMANDRONE's sound.
