At first,a short introduction about who we are!
We are a crew from Tokyo who don’t only create music, but videos, design and more. We are pretty often doing lives as well, so please check it out! We are planning a release of an EP this summer as well. We’ve been repeating that it will come over, and over, so it is sure to happen some time soon.

1. Have you ever been to Brooklyn and what is your image of the city?
(cherrycoke L) No I haven’t been there, so the image I have of Brooklyn is from joey bada$$’s music video of 95 till infinity, and also the Brooklyn lager I sold at my old work.
(oTTs) No I haven’t. I really thought that Brooklyn(2015) was a good movie though.
(shunsuke nakamura) I’ve never been to Brooklyn, and I can’t even imagine what kind of place it is. But I have an image of it being very blue.

2. What is Brooklyn to BLACK BASS?
(gent) the B is really good, right.
(GERA) The birthplace of Captain America.
(oTTs) A terminal.

3. If you’d go there, what would you want to do?
(KRICK) A concert. And to eat steak.
(GERA) I want to touch a part of the east coast graffiti, such as 5pointz, and just doodle on walls.
(oTTs) I just want to get along with the locals, and drink together.

4. Please share a message for the event Brooklyn Calling.
(shunsuke nakamura) It’s definitely one of the more fancy events amongst all we’ve ever performed at!
(Cherrycoke) I have the feeling that it’s an event where people who are being serious about what they are doing gather, no matter what genre they belong to.
(Gera) If sometime we could actually do Brooklyn Calling in Brooklyn, I’d be so happy. Then I’d like to participate in Queens Calling next!
