DJ HIKARU and TETSU has been together as Blast Head for 12 years already. The soundscape maneuvering duo's 6th full-length album 'NU ISLAND' will kindly take you to cerebral paradise a la Blast Head.
Sound journey by Blast Head has always led us to somewhere we never went. The journey goes on and this time the destiny is an island of heaven you can't locate on any map.
In the island there is massive nature of tropical rain forest. Canoe down and jungle-cruise a river surrounded by mangrove trees and you'll be welcomed by wild animals. Once you reach the top of a hill with the greatest scenery in the island, you can enjoy skydiving that gives yourself a feeling of adrenaline rush. Squall is a blessing of the nature, a natural shower that heels your body. The beautiful ocean is a perfect spot for surfing and diving. Here, once-a-decade kind of wave is rolling as if it is nothing special. The ocean is so clear that the sunlight seems to reach the bottom of the sea. If you dive deep, you'll find a banquet in Ryuuguujou. Then up on the beach, sunset and dreamy sound of steel pans signal opening of a party. Why don't we dance under the moonlight, till we run out of ourselves? I feel I'm drown in the starry sky above and...(passed out)
This is Xanadu. Imagine, and it comes true. Welcome to NU ISLAND.
