About

Osaka-based selector, digger, and edit specialist Mori Ra has released his first long-player record – an exquisite 12 track collection, 'Japanese Breeze Edits'.

His home country provides much of the material for his well-crafted edit work, and as the title suggests, the new album is comprised of altered versions of little known sounds from various synth-infused realms of Japanese music. The sounds journey through jazz-funk, album-oriented rock, abstract electronica, ambient, city-pop and more, and anyone who can successfully name each and every track that makes up the source material is certainly deserving of a prize of some sort.

Sumptuous opening track 'Feel' reclines as horizontally as the laws of physics will allow, with its gorgeous pads, sun-kissed vocals and yacht-friendly guitar glides. The tripped-out atmospherics and disorienting leads of 'Pygmy' provide a deliciously psyche-tinged workout, while the hurried tempo and manic horns of 'Magical' are a dead cert to get the dancers on their feet. 'Suddenly' sits somewhere between jazz-funk and city-pop, with crisp beats powering over intertwined synths and idiosyncratic vocal layers, and the dextrous synth work and quirky threads of 'Lyon' close the LP in whimsical style. – Mixmag Asia
