Def Tech’s Yuki “Micro” Nishimiya and Shenan “Shen” Brown greet me with an “Aloha” as I walk into their small office in Harajuku to discuss their 10th anniversary and new album, “Howzit!?”

The Hawaiian-Japanese duo was one of the country’s most well-known musical acts a decade ago, and they both seem as close as ever, but Micro tells me that if it hadn’t been for the birth of Shen’s baby daughter in 2009, Def Tech probably wouldn’t exist today.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
