Translator’s Notes:

"OK, this global production team has so many great productions listed for Japan. They also produced for Koda Kumi or the indie but quite successful R&B singer Hiromi aka Rainbow. Her albums are always masterpieces. 

The thing is Hiromi is also a song-writer, as you can see on the link.

Judging by the site, it looks like a Global Project that keeps joining producers World-Wide, but they come and go.

It seems their productions are quite active in the J-Pop/R&B niche.

From JASMINE to GENERATIONS, they even have Sexy Zone who are one of the most promising Johnny’s groups, quite like V6 because they can actually sing pretty well live inspite their young ages as well as do both the Johnny’s usual idol sound and the more contemporary R&B-ish and Dance sound. They have, of course, more from EXILE’s family, such as ATSUSHI’s solo songs… and Surprise! Rip Off from the album Playgirlz, also released with FLASHBACK is listed under their past productions. Dilly Dally is also under their past catalogue. BoA’s HOPE and Not Over You; B1A4’s Wake Me Up; Tohoshinki’s I Know… all of those are productions done in Japan under this FUTURE UNISON collective. 

They’re behing hits such as EXILE TRIBE’s Burning Up (Sandaime JSB vs GENERATIONS) or JASMINE’s Countdown.

They have practically worked with every R&B-ish act in Japan (Except for Kato Miliyah or Ms Ooja, I don’t see them there), like Crystal Kay or MAY J.

Well, they are also behind two of the most-liked by Intl. Playgirlz After School’s songs. Especially Dilly Dally.

We can expect a power-up album, judging by this. I like that they are siding with the R&B-niche, even mentioning New Jack Swing.”
