JUCE is among the MCs whose official album is highly anticipated in the Japanese music scene. Born in Suginami-ku, Tokyo, in 1993, he began his artistic career in 2009 as an MC in the “BazbeeStoop” unit, collaborating with the beatmaker ALTO. His musical style is characterized by realism, contrasting with conventional storytelling. JUCE addresses his daily feelings and frustrations with the world in his compositions. He has also participated in numerous performances as a guest artist, and some listeners may have discovered him through collaborations marked with the mention “Feat. JUCE.”
JUCE’s stoic attitude towards music is evident in the impressive quantity of his past works. He has released around fifteen creations, sometimes using different artistic names. Initially, his early works were distributed on handmade CD-Rs, but he seems to have placed great importance on quality, following the teachings of his predecessors from the North. Particularly meticulous in presenting his music, JUCE has never sold his lifestyle in isolation. After surpassing 30 and overcoming a rare incident that discouraged him, he has finally made a mark on the Tokyo music scene, ready to represent it fully. However, despite his success, he remains humble. Keep it up, Juice.
