Ryuichi Sakamoto (1952 - )


Ryuichi Sakamoto (born January 17, 1952, Nakano, Tokyo, Japan) is a Japanese musician, composer, producer and actor.

Sakamoto was a member of the internationally successful Japanese synth-rock/synth J-Pop trio Yellow Magic Orchestra. The band charted a British top 20 hit with "Computer Game" in the late 1970s.

Ryuichi Sakamoto's work has been a seminal influence on the acid house and techno movements of the late 1980s and early 1990s.

David Toop writes:

In fact, Ryuichi Sakamoto's "Riot In Lagos" had anticipated Electro's beats and sounds in 1980. (David Toop, 1998)
