About

SOMA is the solo project of the Nagoya, Japan-based live beat & bass event BLUEiCE’s organizer Tomo.
After playing in a hardcore band, he started performing Electronica/Postrock music, performing at a fashion show at Club Verfarre, Tokyo and rave parties in the Tokai area of Japan.
In 2003, he moved to London. After being influenced by dubstep, he performed at Club 333 in London, The Cube in Bristol, Europe’s largest movie/comic/media expo London MCM Expo, the Notting hill Carnival, and many other places in UK, France, Belgium, Spain and Greece as a solo artist, in his band Moult, and other projects.
After moving back to Nagoya in the summer of 2012, he launched the electronica/dubstep/D'n'B/footwork/ambient live event BLUEiCE. BLUEiCE holds label showcases, a collaboration event with Kansai-based event group IdleMoments, Juke x Gorge events, and others.
In 2013, he participated in the WarDub Japan cup, with his track being streamed the most out of a total 300 tracks.
His discography ranges from a 2step EP on Boosey Media UK in 2005 to last year’s release HTTP EP on Gorge.in Japan, as well as composing the soundtrack to the game Hyper Havoc by Evil Droid Studios (UK).
His music features super low bass to shake the ground, beats to move your body, and melodies to touch your heart.
