Hakushi Hasegawa (They/Them pronouns) is a musician, producer and singer-songwriter based in Tokyo, Japan, and the first Japanese artist signed to the Brainfeeder label. Consistent with Brainfeeder’s ethos of seeking out artists operating outside the confines of genre since the label was founded in 2008 by Flying Lotus, Hakushi’s music is tricky to categorize as it straddles a few genres: alternative, electronic, jazz, pop/J-pop. Sometimes it’s pretty, at times it’s very intense and fast-paced. Releasing since 2018, they’ve already made a name for themselves domestically in Japan with a string of wonderfully wild releases and started to build a cult following internationally. Collabs to date have included Kid Fresino, yuigot, Tokyo Paradise Ska Orchestra, Yukichikasaku/men and Eye from Boredoms.

Somoku Hodo was Hakushi’s debut release in 2018 as a teenager, featuring fan favourites ‘Somoku’ and ‘Doku’ – a hyperspeed junglist jazz workout. Illustration by Momoka Aiso. Design by Takeaki Emori. Features exclusive previously unreleased track ‘Doku (SCREWED)’.
