Masayuki Kubo's solo music project And Vice Versa lies somewhere between the current renaissance in beat production, and a more innovative desire to find a new timbre. Perhaps stemming from an understanding of jazz traditions, Kubo takes a very nuanced approach to developing rhythm and melody. Creeping in and out of phase, vocal samples, filtered blips, arps and modulating bass lines come together with organic drum loops and samples to create a very warm psychedelic experience. In June of 2010 he appeared on a split EP with Magical Mistakes which was released digitally and in CD-R in the states through the blog Something America. Last September, he released his full length "still beautiful" on Japanese label Refrain Records.
