スカ、ヒップホップ、ブレイクビーツなどをミックスさせた独自の音楽性を発信し、スカを中心としたプロデュースや、トラックメイク、英語作詞、DJ、番組MC、モデルなどさまざまな活動を行う。現在90年代スカのドキュメンタリー映画「PICK IT UP! Ska in the 90’s」を制作中。

Rei is a Japanese/American bass player, singer and producer, based in Tokyo since 2005. Japan-born, Oregon-raised, and the mission is "to innovate ska music. "

World’s longest running ska zine “Do The Dog” (London) describes Rei’s solo project as “a super catchy 2 Tone/indie crossover that sounds like Beck fronting early Fishbone.” Their review of his second album was on-point:

“This fab release sounds like nothing else you will hear this year, and it's quality and quirkiness will hopefully bring much more international recognition to one of Japan's fastest rising talents.”

He has worked as a bassist with American ska legend Angelo Moore (Fishbone), Mexican ska giants Maskatesta, and written music for Japanese female pop-ska group Oreskaband. 

Currently producing a 90's ska documentary called "Pick It UP! Ska in the 90's."
