Kuniyuki Takahashi

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Kuniyuki Takahashi, a Japanese composer, producer, and sound engineer. The record label Music from Memory published his rediscovered “early tape works” last year. These recordings capture early explorations of synths and samples, with the occasional drum loop presaging a career in dance music. Feather World, which came out in 2013, features collaborations with jazz musicians and singers, and is for those of you looking for something faster and genre-spanning.
