"Shinmaiko" released from Kakubarhythm last summer became an unprecedented hit
the debut album of the home recording unit "Ogawa & Tokoro" by two university students in Nagoya! !!
He presided over the cassette label "Oriental Tapes" and released his own limited edition of 50 in 2019.
The long-awaited first vinylization of the 1st album "Planetary Exploration-" by "sound of speed".
Kuniyuki Takahashi is in charge of mastering.
Despite the simple riff usage, 80's pop, city pop, 90's old house mood with a sense of balance like the zero age
The sense of building is that it feels comfortable and a new approach coexists. Downloading by song is the mainstream
Use the expression method that the release in packages such as CD and LP played, that the order of the songs itself builds the world view of the album.
By doing so, their "planet exploration" was completed here. "Updraft", which was also included in the first release of the label's 20th anniversary competition, is included in this work.
The fact that it was recorded gave rise to a new interpretation, and it made me realize once again that it was an important factor in the origination and transition of the story.
