PROJECT

  • Campaign Story
  • Activity Report

I’m Rillsoul, the organizer of the project, Blackstone Village.
Blackstone Village is a creator team centered on Rillsoul, GMBNO, and SWATH.
In the olden days, Rillsoul produced songs for Zing (currently ZIN) and recorded albums for KYOtaro (currently SIRUP) and Soulflex, and participated in the bass recording of his young husband’s solo album songs.
And I have done almost all recording, vocal direction, music production, etc. from the launch to the dissolution of the now legendary girl group Especia.
Currently, we are producing songs such as HALLCA and YORUWA KOREKARA.

I received some crowdfunding suggestions for this production, but the record is good! I decided immediately. Actually, this is the first record release under a single name, so it’s a long-awaited record! I feel like that.
When I recall, when I was a high school student, I had a part-time job at a local record store called Birdland in Mie, but senior DJs came to buy new records every week, and in the smoke of cigarettes and the bittersweet scent of coffee. I remember stretching out and listening to it together.

Now it’s time for us to make the next generation of music.
Please take this opportunity to come in contact with our music and have a wonderful day.
Thank you!

Introducing the artists who will collaborate in this project.

<Side A>
On the A side, he is an artist who has been providing music since his solo debut with “HALLCA”.
Her singing voice has been strong and straight since that time, and her singing ability is stable and stable.
In the last few years, the music she listens to has become deeper and deeper.
I’m really looking forward to this collaboration!

And after all, this time we are reconstructing a new song by boldly sampling the song “Rittenhouse Square” produced by Especia’s Rillsoul.
There is no doubt that it will be a rare work for HALLCA / Especia fans. It’s MUST HAVE!

<HALLCA Profile>
Born on November 2, 1993, he is a vocalist/songwriter from Takarazuka City, Hyogo Prefecture.
Started as a leader of the girl group “Especia” in June 2012.
He made his major debut in 2015, and after changing members, he was based in Tokyo, but dissolved in March 2017.
It restarted under the name of “HALLCA” in May 2018, and released its first solo EP “Aperitif e.p” in July of the same year.
After releasing the 1st album “VILLA” in September 2019
In 2020, gained a reputation as a composer & singer,

<Side B>
On the B side, this is the first collaboration with “taiyo” Blackstone Village.
At first glance, I thought that there was tension in the sweet singing voice, and the flexibility to go back and forth between Soulful songs and Singing Rap. I’m surprised that this is still a college student.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how Blackstone Village can harness this talent.

<taiyo profile>
Born in Sasebo City, Nagasaki Prefecture, he is an active university student singer born in 1999 who is currently based in Fukuoka. Started artist activities around 2019. The video director who has worked on the MV for yonawo’s major debut song “Milkchoco” in the 1st single “Drama”, which was digitally released in July 2020 after repeated live activities, distribution singles, and MV releases mainly in Fukuoka. ENDA was in charge of the direction and became a big topic. There are also collaborations with artists and creators that I met through music activities in Fukuoka, and while self-promotion, it is spreading mainly on SNS. March 2021 Released 1st album “RE: RUN”.

"The first activity report is a demo release of A-side music!"

Blackstone Village vinyl release project.

“The first activity report is a demo release of A-side music!”

Hello. I’m Rillsoul, the organizer of the project, Blackstone Village.
I have done almost all recording and vocal direction from the launch of Especia to the dissolution.
I feel like I’m still alive in the concept of Especia.
I would be happy if some of the fans had the same feelings (laughs).
Meanwhile, I am happy to be participating in HALLCA’s solo project and to have more opportunities to interact with fans.
First of all, I would like to thank all the fans from the Especia era.
Thank you so much for always supporting HALLCA and us as creators.

This crowdfunding project.
I’ve always wondered what kind of song to write for the first time as Blackstone Village.
First of all, thanks to all the fans from the Especia era.
And a new spice as a solo artist HALLCA.
And our philosophy, “Know the good old sounds and get new. The keyword.

From here, the direction of the song that will be the A side of this time was decided.

The song “Rittenhouse Square” that I wrote in Especia before was a challenge for me at that time.
・ Make the idol sing all English lyrics.
・ Make the idol sing a neo-soul song.
・ Let the idol sing a harmony like D’angelo that was intentionally polluted.
・ Put an idol song on a beat like J DILLA.
・Add a horn section of harmony like Roy Hargrove to the idol song.
I don’t think there are any idols who have done this kind of thing yet.

I remember getting goose bumps when I was featured in the overseas media “Pitchfork” and scored the same as Prince.
I didn’t hit that much at that time (laughs), so now it’s a good memory (laughs)
It’s a memorable song for me.

This time, we will resample this good old sound and make a new song!

It’s still in the demo stage, but please inflate the image.

The first image video has been completed!

Please look forward to it!!!!!
