Tapes (live) + YPY

No Longer Available

Tapes: the Long time Jahtari affiliate and Sex tags corroborator and Selah Wadada front man, his recent releases include a Compilation LP on EM records, a single for Honest Jons and an appearance on Workshop's Various Artists E.P.

Performing his music almost exclusively off cassettes and analog machinery, this ferric fanatic is working hard on a new live set for 2016 showcasing his interests in world, industrial and vintage synthesis whilst continuing to push the creative boundaries of reggae and its sub genres.


YPY is a solo project by an Osaka-based musician Koshiro Hino who also plays a central role in the bands Goat and Bonanzas. The compositions he produce for the bands are marked by the frequent use of muted sounds and overtones, while actively employing the sounds that are not part of the standard chromatic scale. Its primitive feel gets often referred to the current techno scene and was credited for achieving a new original style by elaborately synthesizing experimental and dance music. Two of Goat’s albums have been released until today from the prominent experimental label HEADZ in Japan, and numerous works have been produced alongside under the moniker of YPY from his own cassette label birdFriend. His wide-ranging solo works consist a pinch of humor added on top of the musical style he has established in the bands. Today, he is acclaimed as one of the prime emerging talents in Japan, and has been appointed to support the acts of artists as Arto Lindsay, Shackleton, Cut Hands, SURGEON, and D/P/I.
