for years aco toured small clubs and smokey bars in tokyo until her chart hit, yorokobi hana. aco’s style is different to the mainstream r’n’b that is produced all over japan. her sensitive, dark and erotic lyrics are incredibly direct. aco’s last album was produced by yoshinori sunahara (see tokyo episode 8) for sony music with remixes by dj krush, tricky and the silent poets. aco also features on a track with rapper twigy on the upcoming dj krush album (see tokyo episode 11).
