Early Tape Works (1986-1993) Vol. 2 is due out next month.
Early Tape Works (1986-1993) Vol. 2 takes another look at Takahashi's early production pursuits. These tracks initially appeared on limited-release cassette tapes well before the Japanese artist rose to prominence with his releases for Mule Musiq. Music From Memory first highlighted his wide-ranging sound back in February with Vol. 1, and the Dutch label is now set to release the seven-track second record on June 1st.
Takahashi's other recent moves include a vinyl issue of two tunes from his 2009 Mule CD Walking In The Naked City that featured noted pianist Fumio Itabashi: "River" (also featuring Henrik Schwarz) and "Once Again." His last proper LP, Newwave Project, came out last summer.
Listen to a cut from the upcoming compilation, "Asia."
