[Machine Translation] You can always start over again, no matter what. J himself has faced many obstacles and setbacks in his life, but he has managed to overcome them and start over, and he has tried to convey this message to the listeners through his lyrics. The album is a piece of work that was created through a trial and error process. The lead song, "One's World," is a song that you can listen to over and over again, as it dares to sing about the dirtiness and weakness of human beings in a beautiful song. The guest performers include Z-TWO and other artists active in Tokyo. This is a rare album that changes its good points every time you listen to it, depending on how you feel. Participating artists: Z-TWO, CAVIL, Risa, P.L, DJ KM, DF<profile> Representative of "Bright Spark", affiliated with "Artisan Records", lived in an orphanage from the age of 2. At the age of 10, he discovered Hip Hop music and realized that it was the only way to change his life, but his environment did not allow him to do so. He had no parents, went to school, and lived on the streets with no money or knowledge, so he learned how to play, how to make music, and how to make music from various songs. In 2006, he quit his job for medical treatment and settled in Tokyo, where he changed his name to "J a.k.a Mac" and continued his activities as a composer and DJ. In 2010, he formed the 2MC 1DJ unit "THE ONES" with fellow rappers "Z-TWO" and "Karasu," but the unit disbanded due to a conflict between the members. In 2012, he was invited to join Artisan Records, a label established by Z-TWO, and restarted as Rapper. In January 2014, he started a live talk show "Artisan Room" on Ustream on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, and in December 2014, he and Z-TWO started Str.

Description in Japanese

Restart / J a.k.a Mac

何でも何度でもやり直しがきく。それをテーマにしアルバムタイトルに置いて、全ての曲の至る所にRestartのメッセージを込めて作ったアルバム。J自身が人生において何度も壁に当たり、挫折しながらも何とか乗り越えてやり直してきた事を歌詞に落とし込んで聞いた人に伝わるようにと試行錯誤した1枚になっている。リードとなる『One's World』は、人間の汚さや弱さを、あえて綺麗な曲で綺麗に歌う事で不思議な気持ちになり何度も聴ける曲に仕上がっている。客演陣もZ-TWOを筆頭に東京で活躍しているアーティストを呼んでいる。聞いてる人の気持ちによって、聴くたびに良い所が変わる珍しいアルバム。参加アーティスト:Z-TWO, CAVIL, 梨沙, P.L, DJ KM, DF<プロフィール>「Artisan Records」所属 「Bright Spark」代表。2歳から養護施設で生活し物心付いた頃には、周囲に馴染めず世の中は理不尽だと感じるようになる。10歳で音楽 Hip Hopに出会い自分の人生を変えるにはこれしかないと思い至るが、環境がそうはさせてくれなかった。親が居らず学校にも行かず、路上で生きていた所為か金も知識も無い現状で色んな楽曲から知識や常識、遊び方や音楽の作り方を学ぶ。数年後、楽曲制作をしながら建設関係の仕事に就くも、仕事の都合上数週間から数ヶ月単位で日本全国を転々とし、行く先々でLiveをする。2006年に病気療養の為仕事を辞め東京に定住し、Live活動が出来ない代わりに名前を「J a.k.a Mac」に変えて作曲家やDJとして活動継続。2010年に親交があったRapper「Z-TWO」と「からす」と共に2MC 1DJのUnit「THE ONES」を結成するも、メンバーの対立により解散。その後DJ トラックメイカーとして活動継続。2012年に「Z-TWO」が設立したLabel「Artisan Records 」に勧誘され、Rapperとして再始動する。2013年6月、再始動をきっかけとしてSingle「Restart」をiTunesにて配信。「Z-TWO」の1st Album 「SHINE」に楽曲提供し、Featuringとしても参加する。2014年1月からUstreamにて毎月第3水曜日に生放送トーク番組「職人の部屋」開始。2014年12月「Z-TWO」と共にStr
