[パーティー! With Fujiya & Miyagi]
"Got to get a new pair of shoes to kick it with her, not kick it with you."

Whether it comes to you as disappointment or not, Fujiya & Miyagi isn't actually Japanese. In fact, Fujiya & Miyagi isn't even a duo (unless you always count the ampersand). Deception aside, Fujiya & Miyagi actually take to stage as three track jacket-clad, reebok-wearing guys from Brighton, UK, and together, they provide infectiously good tunage. Forming under a moniker inspired by a Japanese record player brand and the all-knowing Mr. Miyagi, Fujiya & Miyagi produces a sound that showcases a merging of genres - electronic, hip-hop, rock. At it's heart, Fujiya & Miyagi is dance music. Granted, you won't be raving to them or anything, but you'll undoubtedly find yourself moving to their sound. The vocals dance along to the beat in an effortless whisper; the synths makes sure things are flowing while the bass line keeps the sound rigid. Fujiya & Miyagi packages a sound that's geometric, funky and sleek. To all those in my area of Austin, Texas and the immediate beyond, the decievingly non-Japanese, non-duo Fujiya & Miyagi will be satisfying ear buds tonight at Emo's, and it's just about the start of another tour so be sure to check out all their dates!
