The members of YMO have many solo works and Mr. YT is also the man of many works. In addition to his activities in Y.M.O., Beatniks and reformed Sadistics Mika Band, he has been producing solo works without rest. He also appears in TV commercial (recently Lipton Tea), movies (Poisson D'Avril) and he is a fashion designer of Bricks and Yukihiro Takahashi. There are two shops of "Yukihiro Takahashi COLLECTION" in Shibuya PARCO and Nagoya PARCO West Annex. They have good-taste clothes from casual to basic like suits and ties. Among his many works, I personally like "Murdered By Music" (Remix is good, too) and "Neuromantic" (Tony Mansfield in New Musik joined) which are very techno. He had been a little away from techno pop for a while, but there is a signal that he comes back to techno pop track with the work like cine techno and his recent albums including the unit 'Pulse' with Steve Jansen formerly in Japan.
The Beatniks is a golden unit by Yukihiro Takahashi in Y.M.O. and Keiichi Suzuki in Moon Riders. It is like a Japanese version of Electronics (Beatniks is the first). The first album was very avant-garde and industrial while the second one became acoustic pop unexpectedly.
