Wewantsounds is delighted to announce the release of Ryuichi Sakamoto's classic LP Ongaku Zukan, originally issued in Japan on his own School label in 1984. The reissue will replicate the original Japanese release which offered a bonus 7" EP featuring two bonus tracks "Replica" and "Ma Mère l’Oye". Remastered by Saidera Mastering in Tokyo and has been made in collaboration with Sakamoto’s management and Midi Inc. The reissue boasts the original gatefold artwork plus an extra 2-page insert with new liner notes by Andy Beta.

As a successful Oscar winning composer, record producer, actor, and member of the Yellow Magic Orchestra — Sakamoto embarked on a diverse range of styles, as well as influencing and pioneering a number of electronic music genres. After he departed from the Yellow Magic Orchestra, his solo releases, particularly his experimental 1978 electronic fusion album 'Thousand Knives', and 'Riot in Lagos' - released the same year as part of his 'B-Unit' album - were influential in the development of electro and hip hop.
