Former Japanese electronic-rap duo Charisma.com have spent these last few months in hiatus following their “last one-man show” at Zepp Tokyo in January; that all changed earlier this week, however, when the silence was broken and a new single released. Uploaded to the official YouTube channel of Charisma.com earlier this week, the music video features MC Itsuka with a fresh new look to the tune of “Introduction Tekina”. This is, of course, the first release from Charisma.com to not feature DJ Gonchi, with MC Itsuka handling the project as a solo artist as of right now.
While it’s definitely a different sound from previous releases, I’m all for what MC Itsuka is laying down here. Let’s take a look at the latest track below:
Announced alongside the drop of the music video was a November 9 live event at Shibuya WWW, hinting at a solid return to activity from Charisma.com. What this means for MC Itsuka’s future as Charisma.com remains to be seen, but it’s definitely exciting that such a prominent name is returning to form, even if it’s in a slightly altered way. The official website for Charisma.com now describes the project below (while it may not be the best English, the official English bio has been inserted)
