Fourcolor is the alias of 31 year old Japanese artist Keiichi Sugimoto. He
began performing as Fourcolor in 1998 and has released on labels such as 12k

Akiyama, Christophe Charles, Waki, Ogurusu Norihide, World's End Girlfriend,
and Oren Ambarchi.

groups are still active and garner large critical acclaim around the world.
They have released albums on 12k, Apestaartje and been featured in the
Bip_Hop Generation compilations.
And as if that isn¹t enough, Keiichi runs the label Cubic Music.

and Post (Preservation).

fire with his group Snuff Puppets.
