Kuniyuki Takahashi
Early Tape Works (1986-1993) Vol.2

Second and final part of the compilation series exploring early ambient-minded recordings by the Japanese producer. Recorded at his home studio in Sapporo using, Takahashi was was using electronic means (Roland Juno60, TR-606, TB-303, Casio FZ-1, Korg 770, Boss DE-200, Foster A8 and a Yamaha MT44 track cassette recorder) to pursue what he referred to as a "new Oriental sound" -  most convincingly realised ton 'Sakura No Mizu', this album's stately, grieving highlight. In many respects it's MFM business as usual, tasteful and cushioned and bound inexorably for the Balearics, but to see it only as Pyjama Music would be to do a great disservice to Takahashi's prescient, spare yet  extravagantly melancholic aesthetic. Yeah, it's RELAXING, but it's kind of depressing too - and that's a combo we can get behind.
