Product Description

From Tokyo, Juzu a.k.a. Moochy has been a leading dj and producer in Japan's dance/world crossover scene since the 1990s. This and the accompanying Y album, are his first releases for about five years, and has been a long time in the making. Perhaps these are his Magnus Opus, using recordings he has made in Senegal, Cuba, Turkey, Egypt, as well as Ainu tonkori (from Oki) Japanese shamisen and koto. These disparate instruments and sounds are combined cleverly into a dance/dub/tribal crossover mix. Rather brilliant.
