Album Notes
Tatsuya Oe, who has achieved much acclaim as Dark Model over the past five years, has now released his new album under his longest-standing moniker, Captain Funk. Having raised and lived in Tokyo, Osaka, and New York, in this “Metropolis” album, Oe displays his retro-futuristic perspective of “city music” in the style of electronic funk, synthwave, and electro-jazz.

“Metropolis” begins with the dreamy, upbeat synth-pop “City of Love,” followed by “Street Chaser,” a driving track with the late 70’s jazz-funk groove. “Magic,” a disco boogie tune which features funky guitar strums and melodic synth leads, is reminiscent of “Hey Boy, Hey Girl” or “Piece of You.” “Over the Rainbow,” an uplifting track featuring a brass section and Brazilian beats, and “Metropolis,” a futuristic jazz techno groove in which the fretless bass sound draws audience’s attention, highlight the festive side of the album, while “You’ll Never Know,” ”Seduction,” and “Till the Dawn” stage the romantic and mellow side. “Sunset Bay,” the closing synthwave track featuring melodic leads and 80s-esque beats, lets us bask in the afterglow of the urban soundscape.

Captain Funk is the longest-standing project of award-winning music producer Tatsuya Oe. Under the moniker, Oe has created original electronic music inspired by the sounds that influenced him in his youth, such as funk, disco, synth pop, and house music. In its '98 debut album "Encounter with…," he exemplified unique sound by fusing old-school funk and state-of-art techno sound. Oe has earned praise from DJs across the board, including Coldcut, Carl Cox, Freddy Fresh, and Chemical Brothers for his infectious grooves. Fatboy Slim (Norman Cook) described "Bustin' Loose EP ('99)" as "F***ing insane!" and demanded extra copies. "Songs of the Siren ('00)," his most rock-oriented release yet, won "The Year in Music 2001" from the Billboard Magazine. In the releases of '07 "Heavy Metal," "Heavy Mellow," and '09 "Sunshine," Oe updated his early signature funky breaks/big-beat style with modern electro and synthpop sound. Catchy vocal tracks such as "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" and "Weekend" were ranked in several charts in Japan and South Korea. In the US, Captain Funk's songs have been featured in numerous media projects, from box office film trailers like "Money Monster" to TV dramas such as "Switched at Birth (ABC Family)" and "Younger (TV Land), and to advertising campaigns including Forever 21 and Adidas.
