Pretty cool shot, isn’t it? I want to give shout-outs to him and Tower Records Japan.

A spine-tinglingly epic and relentlessly bold odyssey of sounds & beats consisting of futuristic and edgy Orchestral Electronica from Tatsuya Oe (Captain Funk)

Dark Model is a new project by award winning music producer Tatsuya Oe (who has also been well known as electronic music master/club DJ Captain Funk), which focuses on futuristic, emotional, and edgy beat-oriented orchestral electronic music. He was born in Japan, the land of Godzilla and Kurosawa, now residing in Gotham City, New York.

Dark Model's debut album was released in the form of CD and digital downloads on May 16, 2014.

With his enormously diverse music background, he has produced several hundreds of music related works, including not only his own original releases but also remixes and collaborative projects with many other musicians such as James Brown, Serge Gainsbourg, Ron Sexsmith, Chic, Simon Lebon, Yoshihide Otomo. He has been referred to as “Remix Wizard,” “Unpredictable,” “Captain sailing into the uncharted waters of dance music” by music journalists, and Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) described his music as “F***ing insane!”

The basic concept of Dark Model is to make a kind of “Instrumental Narrative” by incorporating a diverse range of musical ideas and elements which Tatsuya has achieved throughout his career. As heard in his past works such as “Songs of the Siren” which was acclaimed by Billboard magazine, Tatsuya has had strong interest in “building and telling a story through music.” However, it is striking that he features much more cinematic elements and orchestral arrangements in this new project than he did previously. He even brings in a touch of traditional Japanese music and culture which he grew up with and was so inspired by. While Dark Model’s music may be on some common ground with film scores, his priority with his project is to make music which stands on its own, not as subordinate to any specific visual or motion elements.

Since the launch of the project in May 2012, Dark Model’s music has been licensed and featured in numerous media projects, including Box Office film promos / trailer for films such as “Elysium”, “The Paperboy”, in Verizon “Droid” TV commercial, and in advertising campaigns for Lexus, Oakley, XBox, and many more.
