Since they formed Kyoto Jazz Massive as a DJ unit in the beginning of 90's, they have built a Japanese Jazz Crossover Music scene in Japan and also succesfully built a following overseas.
In 1994 they released their first production; a compilation CD entitled "Kyoto Jazz Massive V.A".
After that, they contracted with Compost Records in Germany in 2000 and released their first single "Eclipse /Silent Messenger" from that label. After releasing it, this track won first place on the BBC Radio One Chart and was evaluated highly worldwide. In the same year, they released their second single "Substream" successively.
In 2002, they finally released their first album "Spirit Of The Sun" which was received to widespread global acclaim.
