Born in Kagoshima in 1968, currently lives in Shiga. Having graduated from the Kyoto City University of Arts in 1991, Tadasu Takamine soon won the honorable mention award at the 2nd Sony Music Art Artist Audition in 1993, and from 1993 to 1997 he was one of the members of Dumb Type. Thereafter, he studied Media Art at the International Academy of Media Arts and Sciences (IAMAS).
