Diggin' in the East (1)

I'm wondering how many people catch on quickly, when they hear "Kichijoji". People who like Japanese psychedelic/avant-garde music like Fushitsusha, Tamio Shiraihi, Touri Kudoh may know the place name. Yes, Kichijoji was the spot where the legendary venue "Minor" existed. 
I'd like to introduce the great record shop in Kichijoji, Disk Union Kichijoji.

Disk Union is the largest and most famous record chain store in the Kanto region. If you like every genre of music, I recommend you go to Disk Union Kichijoji in first. You can buy rock, avantgarde music, world music, hip hop, techno, reggae soul, classic and wamono (various Japanese record DJs play including from J-pop to Japanese jazz, Japanese soundtrack), etc. all type of great records under $10. I've seen a Japanese producer/rapper, Dev Large who passed away last month was digging wamono at this store. A French young improviser, Cyril M. also visited here when he toured in Japan last year.

These are records I get today at Disk Union Kichijoji.

Toshiro Mayuzimi - Heart Sutra (L-10001W)

Cosmos Factoy - A journey with the cosmos factory (ETP-72083)

Heinz Reber / Thomas Demenga「Cellorganic #1」

Glorious gothic drone/ambient by the novel combination of the pipe organ and the cello. The Portugal heretic experimental group, Osso Exotico fans must listen to.

Rick Wade - Shinjuku Strut

Stylish re-edit track a detroit leading figure challenges to Wa-mono (Japanese music). A new level disco which he dyes 1977 mellow funk of Ruriko Oogami who was said to be Aretha Franklin in Naniwa (Oosaka) black by the way of detroit house.

Bong - Time Regained

From the latest work by UK drone god. Featuring a theatrical male vocal as if he comes from the land of the dead, they create the more mysterious world.

Killer Bong「From the cutting interstice」

From the album released in 2006. Trippy music as if I step into the strange unusual space. Adopting elements of dub or ethnic music, he creates his own music without degenerating the specific music genre. It makes me surprise.

Futuro Antico - Dai Primitivi All'Elettronica

The 1980 LP by the Italian trio. Ethno ambient which they crossbreed various ethnic music like Indo or Africa with electronic music. Fans of DJ Keiji Haino must listen to.

Nagmatic for D.L.I.P. - Feel It

The track released from 7" specialized label, Lazy Woman Music. The smokey and charming sound interwoven by the melancholic and jazzy track like Nightmares on wax and slow beats is so cool.

Madteo - Discomfort Zone

The new track by the genius producer in Brooklyn is non-beat dope ambient which is similar to Ketev in German. He draws the world like a daydream combined with black and white PV.

Project Tempo - Why Not

Dub edit of Carly Simon - Why. The world of trippy sound which unified with slow-mo beats, the repeated cutting guitar, and a echoed female voice is amazing. I'd like to listeners who like dub works by the Om member, Al Cisneros.

Ookami - Ookega

The Japanese hiphop classic which Funky Four Plus is used. The unusual lyric by a mike relay of 5 mcs makes me feel fresh even now 20 years after release.

Bark Psychosis - Nothing Feels EP

The most underrated UK band in 1990's. They had the stunning personality which they're psychedelic, shoegazer and also post rock, so not fit the peculiar genre. I'd like Fusitsusha fans listen to.
