Soul singers tend to have this same trait to their voices when they get excited while vocalizing. The music he makes has mass appeal to me. I'm pretty sure he has complete control of his musical direction too. Not a lot of Japanese artists use voice effect samples like American artists do. However, Its all growing on me the more I listen. I sometimes feel like I'm listening to incomplete sentences when trying to hear his English lyrics. Or you can go listen to his music on his Sound Cloud.
Its also recently became available on iTunes. He doesn't produce his own tracks but he does write all of his lyrics. Dance beat numbers mixed with other musical instruments and voice effect samples are half of the album. The reason it was so hard for me to find his music was because its sold exclusively through Tower Records in Japan. Taichi Murkai has a good voice but I wish to hear him belt a note in a song once or twice. Most of his music videos have good quality for an indie artist too.
My opinions are my opinions good or bad. I just hope he continues to progress in his music career. Mukai uses them effectively for a more personal sensual sound. Anyway, Taichi Mukai uses a lot of edits in the production of his music. I'm taking my own advice.
Feel free to comment your thoughts as well. If you stay indie, you get to create the kind of music you want to. Sadly, nothing much came up about his music other than a few pictures and his Sound cloud page. He sings in English too but he has to work on pronouncing the ending sounds to words. I just like talking about East Asian pop culture.
The last two tracks are a pair that goes together well with the style I was expecting. People should stop putting people in boxes based on the one piece of information. He seems to me that he's more about the production of his music than the chance to show his vocal range. I loved what I heard and decided to search up more information on him later. Japan, South Korea, and China.
I've heard popular J-artists such as Kumi Koda and Amuro Namie use it in a few songs but only their Hip Hop style tracks. I don't give up though so I stopped looking and waited till a later date for more information to appear. Tracks take beats and cut them up, bend them and stretch them out so that the listener will want to move their body along with the rhythm. During the times that he does get louder, his voice has this growl quality to it that I love. He might not want that kind of fame or he might end up just being a producer for other artists. Check him out in your free time everyone. I'm guessing only iTunes Japan.
His English is fine otherwise. There's always room for improvement to grow but Taichi Murkai gives me a feeling that he will be huge one day soon. A record label that will give him the tools to full bring out his potential will work wonders for him though. .
