"Hong Kong experimental cinema, 80's Kungfu movies, triad gangsters, Chinese and Japanese cartoons, Qian Xuesen and China's early space program all collide together in AV Okubo's sound to create a weird kaleidoscope of modern Chinese sensibilities."  AV Okubo's debut album is produced by Martin Atkins.
