Non-Standard Collection - Non-Standard no Hibiki (4 CDs plus Extensive Booklet) (Limited Edition)

Ref: FSD7477


Price: 99.99

4 CDs, plus extensive and lavish booklet, including previoiusly unreleased tracks by Haruomi Hosono and Pizzicato Five. From the mid 1980s, the Non-Standard label, founded by Haruomi Hosono released a series of groundbreaking albums, many with an experimental edge. The label attracted a group of likeminded musicians, who supported eachother, but was 'non-standardized' in its production values. Haruomi Hosono's position in the Japanese music world has often been that of a mentor to other musicians, with an unparalleled breadth of collaborative production. In 1984 he lauched a multi-media series of Non-Standard books, Non-Standard Music and Monad Music. Non-Standard also impilied a spirit of a new science, naturalism in a hi-tech society. There were essentially two sides to the label. One was of techno pop, including a blend of techno pop with funk and hip hop, through his act F.O.E. The other was ambient and a hybrid of ambient with commercial background music (BGM) (through Monad) to bring the ambient music developed by Brian Eno to a global level. For Hosono, ambient was a mixture of technology and shamanism. At any rate it was an incredibly creative period, introducing a range or artists and musicians whose influence permeated well into the 1990s pop scene. These include Sohichiro Suzuki (World Standard) Miharu Koshi, Urban Dance, Friends of Earth (F.O.E.) Shi-Shonen and Pizzicato Five. Includes previously unreleased outtakes from SFX (Hosono) (CD3 T.8 Akuma no Hatsume and CD4 T. 13, Hokkyoku) and demo tracks by Pizzicato Five. Should appeal to Hosono, techno pop and ambient fans past and present. Includes interviews with all the artists. All tracks remastered, with selection and supervision by Sohichiro Suziki.

Dubforce (EP)

Ref: FSD7205


Price: 15.99

Dub - the music, bands, mixes, remixes- has been around for so long in Japan it's almost become a tradition. In March 2015, an event 'Asamoto Lovers Aid' was held to raise money for Hirofumi Asamoto, a musician and lover of dub, who was in hospital at the time receiving treatment after being involved in a bicycle crash. Unfortunately Asamoto later passed away. At this event several veterans of the dub scene got together including Watsui (bass) Gota Yashiki (drums) Aida Shigekazu (guitar), Emerson Kitamura (keyboards) Akihito Masui (trombone) which eventually resulted in Dubforce and this EP. Some of these musicians were in the group Mute Beat (who Asamoto played with) pioneers of the dub scene from the 1980s. These musicians have always remained popular and this latest dub band has been enthusiastly received in Japan by lovers of dub and reggae Tracks range from those written by by Holger Czukay, Jah Wobble to Aswad and originals.

It's often portrayed how Japanese folk (minyo) was mixed with various western music and rhythms following the second world war. However even before the Showa period in 1926, Japanese minyo (ryo) was being mixed with foxtrot, blues, tango and rumba. These songs were popular in dance halls, where these familiar folk tunes took on a new lease of life.

Crystal Records was a short lived record label that operated between 1934 to 1936. However, it had a big influence on the Japanese music scene, mainly as the breeding ground for Ryoichi Hattori (1907-1993). Hattori composed some of Japan's most famous jazz and pop songs, helping to create a jazz boom following the war. Crystal was the first label Hattori's songs found an outlet for, where he would write jazz, Latin and pop tunes for a variety of singers.
