ALTZ is an Osaka-based artist, multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ who doesn’t follow the rules. A true renegade who could only get away with playing a breaks instrumental of Jingle Bells at the club, ALTZ has earned wide respect in Japan and abroad producing trippy recordings for his own label Altzmusica, EM, DFA, Crue-L and Bear Funk, remixing the psychedelic powers of The Boredoms and Boris, and launching pseudonym WALTZ and 9-piece live shamanic dub-disco ensemble ALTZ.P. Here he is in deep mode – a strange take on all musica.
