The two brothers Shuya Okino and Yoshihiro Okino are Kyoto Jazz Massive. They are well-known DJs, producers, club-runners and remixers – not only in Japan. Their future jazz blend of Jazz, Bossa, Latin and House is not a trainspotting one, they are definitely the ones of the pioneers and originators in Japan since the late Eighties. For example the club-night "Kyoto Jazz Massive" is one of a real legend! Their regular club-nights in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto exist since the early nineties, and their concept of playing old and new full spectrum sets was and still is a similar concept to regular jazz-orientated club-nights like the Mojo-Club (Hamburg), Bar Rhumba, the old Talking Loud days @ Dingwalls (London), or Into Somethin' (Munich).

They also collaborate extensively with the Jazzanova boys out of Berlin, appearing on their Remixes album and also reworking several Jazzanova tunes.
