Ametsub is based in Tokyo. He has played in various prestigious music festivals such as SonarSound Tokyo, SummerSonic Festival, NagisaMusic Festival, Unit-CountDown Night, TaicoClub Festival Show, DeLaFantasia Festival and Ruxpin(n5MD) in Reykjavik, ICELAND.
His music often evokes the feelings of drifting melodies that seems to remind an endless trip in the strong sound-scape like a drawn spectacular nature, the solemn horizon, the silence of the evening, fluttering reminiscence in the old tape, magnificence red landscape like an album artwork.
