[edit] History

TWO-MIX from episode 238.

They met in the early 1990s. Minami, already well-established as a voice actress, was in the indie band Re-X and met Shiina through a friend. Minami released a solo album in 1992, Endless Communication which Shiina contributed to. They formed a group together Es Connexion and released an album. In 1995 they formed Two-Mix.

They have been featured in anime such as Gundam Wing and Detective Conan (in which the title character, Conan Edogawa, is voiced by Minami. They also made a guest appearance in one of the episode in which they were kidnapped and saved by Conan and his friends).

In 1999, Two-Mix produced Miru Takayama(a cousin of Minami) and in 2000 Miru and Minami formed M*TWO-MinaMiru-.

In 2005, Minami and Shiina were joined by Joe Rinoie as an additional singer and composer, changing the group's name to II MIX⊿DELTA for a limited time.

In 2008, Shiina started his solo music project ShiinaTactix-Music, featuring different female vocalists, Sanae Kobayashi, Yoko Hikasa and Mutsumi Tamura.

In 2013, Two-Mix released a digital download single "T-R-Y: Next / Across The End: Platinum Stream" and Shiina composed the music for a song "Rhythm Linkage" with Yoko Hikasa in her album "Hikasa Yoko Collaboration Album Glamorous Songs".
