    Default Fairlights, Mallets & Bamboo Vol. 2

    Volume 1 was one of my favourite mixes EVER. So, here's Vol. 2 - http://rootstrata.com/rootblog/?p=8231

    "Further investigation into the futuristic spaces in Japanese ambient and pop music from the 1980s…"

    Hope you enjoy...

    What is the name of the track playing at 31 minutes? It's making me sad and it reminds me of the movies of Hiroshi Ishikawa.

    Been really enjoying both of these. On a related note, I've always loved the incidental music in Akira, which IIRC would fit quite well in here. Anyone know who it's by and if it's available?

    I have to say I prefer his Music Interiors mix, it's definitely had more plays than the first F, M & B mix, but all his mixes on that site are worth a listen.

    It's by Geinoh Yamashirogumi - I've got an insane choral psych record by him. I'll have to play it to you sometime, it's crazy. I've only heard the soundtrack once (apart from watchings of the film) but I'd agree, it's fucking mental. Lots of clashing metal drums I seem to recall.

    Volume 1 of this brings up some great memories for me - getting the train up to Glasgow and rolling along the coast, looking out at the cobalt blue sea, listening to wonderful Japanese maxi-minimalism.

    yyaldrin: There's a full tracklisting on the site. I haven't sat down and worked out what's what yet - just letting it wash over me.

    i highly recommend osorezan / doh no kembai which was reissued last year, memorable (blood curdling) start followed by amon düül-ish improv plus balinese-style thing on the flip, incoherent but powerful stuff!
