From his collaboration with a fashion brand and producing runway music for a Paris collection, to being selected in Tom York’s playlist, Mars89 has recently become a hot topic of conversation, especially in the underground music scene in Tokyo. He is a DJ and composer who is deeply connected with the clothing scene. There was a time when he originally dreamed of becoming a fashion designer. “When I was studying fashion, I was influenced by a designer named Aitor Throup. I felt like he was using the functionality of fashion design as an expression for beauty beyond practicality, and I was attracted to his ultimate functional clothes. It was C.P. Company that Aitor Throup used to collaborate with, and that was my first introduction to C.P. Company. “

Whether it’s his release from the Bristol-based record label “Bokeh Version” or meeting many British people, Mars89 has many connections with British culture. C.P. Company is loved by British counter-culture and seems to have been recognised as cool clothes. “ I usually enjoy wearing C.P. Company and my British friends love it. I like brands that have a strong cultural background. I think it’s amazing to be a brand that is still deeply loved by various cultures. The clothes themselves are durable and well-made, and the colours of the clothes for this season are really nice as well. I usually don’t wear flashy colours, but I thought it would be nice to wear these colourful tops. I’d like to wear it with a tight look, like rebellious men do in Europe. It seems that these electric and slightly gothic elements make up his fashion and music tastes. “I like things that have philosophical and speculative elements, such as novels by Phillip .K. Dick and Keikaku Ito, and movies like them.” That kind of musicality fills his home as well as his studio, where he produces his music. As he says “I didn’t mean to go into the music industry, but I found myself here after doing what I love.” His deep curiosity of searching for good things is the reason why he has become an important figure in the music scene.
