About Brave Wave Productions
Brave Wave is a music label based in Japan, dedicated to exploring the interplay between videogames, music and nostalgia. The dual-natured label produces and publishes music albums, both solo and compilations, as well as composes music for video games. It is run by Kuwait-based Mohammed Taher, with operating duties handled by Tokyo-based Alexander Aniel, plus special co-directing from Manami Matsumae and Keiji Yamagishi.
The label is known for bridging the gap between Western and Japanese creators, best evident in the videogame Shovel Knight (by Yacht Club Games) which Manami Matsumae was able to contribute music to, as well the mega-hit World 1-2 album, which hosted a wide array of composers from all over the world. Most recently, Keiji Yamagishi's Retro-Active Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 was a chiptune sensation blending original compositions by Yamagishi with remixes by Brave Wave's global roster of talent. This marriage between Western and Eastern cultures is unique to our label and the foundation of our vision.
