Fantastic Plastic Machine

Real Name:
田中 知之 (TANAKA Tomoyuki)
Profile:
Fantastic Plastic Machine (now abbreviated as FPM) is a Shibuya-kei ("Shibuya-style") dance music project by DJ Tomoyuki Tanaka. After the self-titled debut was released in 1997, Tanaka worked closely with Masayuki Kumahara and started to incorporate elements of Philly soul and house. In 2009, Tanaka, now abbreviating the name to FPM, started working with Takashi Watanabe and Yuzuru Tomita to pivot FPM to a much more streamlined electro house sound.

From 1997 through 2003 FPM was a true genius. Somehow [producer/dj/money?] he has COMPLETELY lost his way. The output is lazy and useless. What a waste of talent! I only hope for those of us loved what heights he hit that he will put in the hard work and focus to return to his rightful status as a creative KING! {see his logo on the later EP's}

Fantastic Plastic Machine is one of the few, rare, unrecognized artists out there who produces some of the greatest dance tracks out there that no one ever seems to hear all that often.
FPM blends rhythms and samples from the 60's and 70's to create tracks so groovy, so catchy, it startled me at first when I heard some of his songs.
From his beautiful lounge tracks, such as "Beautiful Days" to his disco dance songs like "Take Me To The Disco," FPM rarely gets the respect he deserves.
