Born out of the art collective Tasha Hisha (iseneehihinee) in 2004, COS/MES developed a crossover style that connected various Tokyo scenes, from skateboarders to ravers, graffiti artists to film makers. Comprised of artists Flatic and 5ive, COS/MES, the cryptic DJ/production duo have been producing a mishmash of graceful electronic music with House, Balearic, and 'Cosmic Jazz' influences. Flatic is known for running his mix CD label Soundmore, specialising in left-field sounds, whilst 5ive collaborates with painter Mustone (also of the Tasha Hisha collective) alongside his side-projects Yendakadollyasu, Zamagi and Policeman. Blending the worlds of music and art, even the sleeve artwork is a stunning visual interpretation crafted by ESP Institute’s Mario Hugo.
