Half of Smokey Joe & The Kid, Senbei is a productive beatmaker, videographer and film buff, passionate about japanese culture. It's been almost 10 years since Senbei produces a singular hip-hop tinged with asian sounds and electronic textures.

« What fascinates me about Japan, are not that much the Zen gardens or even Buddhism but more the apocalyptic universe of Akira, the dark and tough Japan of Takeshi Kitano and the
Kurosawa's wonderland». Senbei

In December 2016, he fulfilled his dream by flying to Tokyo. He meets there Dj Kentaro and japanese MC ShingO2 (who produced the soundtrack of the cult manga Samurai Champloo), pushes the doors of the most surprising clubs of Shibuya, gets lost in the arcades, attends video games music
symphonic gigs, ... and still manages to record some of the best traditional instrumentalists of Koto, Shakuhachi, Shamisen, Niko or Ichigenkin. This trip gave birth to the NINGYO album (mermaid in japanese).

The album cover comes from the japanese artist mind : Godtail. Senbei collaborated several years with Tha Trickaz, made musical arrangements for Deluxe and composed for a Thierry Mugler (fashion designer) show.
