Rush Hour’s Young Marco, San Proper and Antal are packing up for a trip in Japan. It’s is going to be a very exiting week with the Rainbow Disco Club festival ahead of us, and a show with Soichi Terada in Kobe plus digging stops… Anticipated as we are, we will drop as much Japanese updates as possible via our RH platforms. Updates about Japanese gems, the tour and the shows, starting out with a ‘Favorites From Japan’ playlist… Stay tuned!
Favorites From Japan This trip is a good reason to recollect our Japanese favorites in an ever expanding Youtube playlist… Let’s highlight a short selection from that list here.
1. HARUOMI HOSONO – PHILARMONY This masterpiece gets a repress soon!! “Philarmony” is an avant-garde solo project from Japanese electronic music maestro Haruomi Hosono, founder of the Yellow Magic Orchestra. Originally released in 1982 on his own Yen label, the LP features experimental, boundary-pushing and schizophrenic compositions, veering from wildly abstract beauties to tight and funky dance floor fillers. It is a mesmerizing wander through the sonic genius of Japan’s legendary musical innovator.
2. KIMIKO KASAI WITH HERBIE HANCOCK – BUTTERFLY
‘Butterfly’ is a wonderful and very rare 1979 LP by Japanese songstress Kimiko Kasai and jazz legend Herbie Hancock. Inspired performances from Kimiko herself as well as the supremely talented band of musicians Hancock united for the project, including master drummer Alphonse Mouzon and renowned organist Webster Lewis.
3. RYO KAWASAKI – HAWAIIAN CARAVAN
This beautiful track is taken from “Ryo”, released in 1982. The Japanese jazz guitarist was a musician for the band Tarika Blue, to name another favorite of ours. Kawasaki is best known as one of the first musicians to develop and popularise the fusion genre and for helping to develop the guitar synthesizer in collaboration with Roland Corporation and Korg.
4. RYUICHI SAKAMOTO – RIOT IN LAGOS
This otherworldly electronic track is also from a Yellow Magic Orchestra member. “Riot In Lagos” by Sakamoto was firstly released in 1980 on Island Records. The Japanese musician from Tokyo was also an actor. He played a role in, and composed music for the award winning Bernardo Bertolucci movie The Last Emperor.
