Notes

Kosuke Saito is one of the most recognizable doujin artists known, as a regular contributor to KONAMI's BEMANI series, responsible for spreading the J-Core movement, setting the 'standard' for the electronic music 'scene' and pushing a worldwide appeal to japanese techno.


He's first landmark towards his music career was debuting in KONAMI's arcade series "beatmania IIDX". After winning a spot in a music trial for KONAMI, his first composed song "Clione" was featured in "beatmania IIDX 4th style". After a period of less than 3yrs he returned to KONAMI as a commissioned artist remixing a song for "beatmania IIDX 9th style", under an alias called 'kors k' (コースケ) which is derived from his name Kosuke (in Japanese they sound similar). From there on forth he became committed to continue his music venture and soon to become an icon of the japanese techno 'movement'.

At the end of the year 2004 he assembled his own proper recording studio labeled as 'S2TB Recording' (The S2TB is an acronym for SubSonic Tribe) rather than being under a recognizable doujin studio or artist. Although the idea of a studio was a premature move (as he's subsequent CD release wasn't until 8yrs later) it gave him the freedom and rights to label his works. At Comic Market 67 (unconfirmed) he released his first CD album under his label, consisting of his early works and a strong influence of house music.

With the introduction of "beatmania IIDX 10th style" an unknown artist appeared under the alias 'teranoid' with the song 'gigadelic'. According to some sources, no one at the time knew who this person/alias was. It was clearly unknown. Consisting of hardstyle, gabba and hardcore tracks the alias was solely focus on hard techno only. Subsequently an alliance was made with a popular vocalist at the time called 'MC Natsack'. With Natsack as the MC the duo became very popular in the clubs, even as far as releasing a Live performance CD from one of the events at "live@underground". Later in 2006 kors k claimed responsibility for the teranoid project.


There after he decided to focus mainly on diverse genres with different aliases to distinguish them. For example:

"kors k" - Main alias used for House, PsyTrance, UK Hardcore, CANDY Rave, Hi-Tech, Big Beat, Trance

"teranoid" - used solely for Hardcore, Gabba, Hardstyle

"StripE" - used solely for Trance, Energetic Trance, Buchiage Trance

"Eagle" - used solely for Drum'n Bass, Drumcore, Drumstep


Kosuke has been a regular contributor for the doujin scene as well remixing works appearing in some specific labels such as TANO*C's 'HARDCORE SYNDROME' and DA Recordings.
