Born Keigo Oyamadain Setagaya in 1969, Cornelius is an enigmatic, experimental, and internationally acclaimed DJ and recording artist. A performing musician since his teens, he first found fame as a member of Flipper's Guitar, one of the key groups of the Tokyo Shibuya-kei scene. In 1997, he released his debut solo album Fantasma, which saw him compared to Brian Wilson and Beck.
Cornelius has subsequently become a highly sought after producer, remixer, and soundtrack artist, working with the likes of Blur, Bloc Party, James Brown, and Edgar Wright. His first new album in 11 years, Mellow Waves, was released last June.
