Legofriendly: "Waiting for the Moment"  OUT NOW !!  < FLAC & MP3>

A dystopian vision of Tokyo in 2046 after the Tau Cetians invaded and colonized Japan, turning it into a low-cost manufacturing zone. The music explores our notions of what it is to be 'free' when that freedom is really captive to the whims and lunch plans of the ruling board of directors. -->[More]

skab/t:  "Crooked With These"  OUT NOW !!  <Free MP3 & FLAC>

"Crooked With These" is a dark and dirty downbeat-driven look at what happens when the milk crate runs dry. Nine tracks of chopped and chomping rhythms licked into a frenzy by warm and distorted basslines and fetishistically sparse melodies. Taking his lead from masters of the dirty cut such as Machine Drum, Proswell, Ilkae and Dabrye, he ties together minimal Jazz, P-Funk and avant-garde explorations with twisted samples and relentlessly churning atmospheres. It's a spooky record, by turns nostalgic, optimistic and reflective.

skab/t is a producer of electronic music who began his first experiments with synthesis in 1992 while at university in Bristol. Based now in Tokyo, he has been involved in the Japanese IDM & Glitch scene for many years, heading up the 'Freeta Corrective' responsible for series of block parties nestled in the maze of Tokyo's busy streets.

"Test Tone Anthology"  OUT NOW !!  <CD>

A three-disc anthology of live recordings that mark Test Tone's 50th Anniversary, featuring artists as diverse as Damo Suzuki, Tenniscoats, Samm Bennett, OWKMJ, Christophe Charles, L?K?O, Missing Man Foundation, Muddy World, Scriptones and many more.

(V.A.) Test Tone Anthology Disc One
Texture, rhythm and movement in all of its disguises, this anthology disc captures the myriad of expression that has become the hallmark of the Test Tone series at Tokyo's SuperDeluxe. Focusing on riveting improvisation and stark electronica, the music collected here covers a lot of ground, from balloon duets to helicopter compositions and other experiments in noise. Challenging and evocative, this presents wide-angle snapshot of Japan's current wave of international sound pioneers.

(V.A.) Test Tone Anthology Disc Two
Surrounded by murmurs, footsteps and other environmental accompaniment, these recordings capture the immediacy of resplendent sound on location. This disc could be as much an acoustic exploration of the performance space as it is an aural exploration of the ambient and meditative forms in each track. Beautifully packed into this second disc in the Test Tone Anthology series, steelpans, kalimbas, bells, metronomes and family-sized tuning forks all seem to find a resounding home within the walls of Tokyo's SuperDeluxe.

Order CD

(V.A.) Test Tone Anthology Disc Three
This third disc in the Test Tone Anthology series pulls no punches, offering an insider's view of what goes on outside of business hours in downtown Tokyo. An exhilarating dose of tumultuous noise-rock, leftfield jazz freakouts and other explosive encounters make this a compilation for the truly brave at heart. With performances by L?K?O, Kuruu Crew, Damo Suzuki, Muddy World, and a legion international guests, this could in fact be the album that finally completes your collection. Everything you wanted to know about the underground but were afraid to ask.
