Genji - Bioroid A Bioroid is an amalgamation of man and machine, and in the same way, Genji's debut-album is the perfect combination of most diverse elements. Classic elements of folk music join the philosophies of Japanese animes, accompanied by sweet pop melodies. Like a good movie, this album lures you into another world to witness the protagonist's tale.

A Bioroid can simulate and emulate biological life, and in the same way, this music reflects the spectrum of human emotions without losing even an ounce of originality. In order to bring you only the best, the album was given it's finishing touch by Thommy Hein's skillful mastering work. Genji's Bioroid grabs folk music by the shirt collar and tosses it from it's sleepy countryside image into the neon sign world of the 21st century.
