Originally released in 2005. This is the debut release by Shogun Kunitoki, a quartet based in Helsinki, Finland. They have been exploring the frequency spectrum since 1998, patiently perfecting their own idiom, a music of a past-future that draws from the myriad synthetic sounds of the 20th century. Elements borrowed from '50s electronic pioneers, '60s psychedelia and minimalism, '70s experimentalism and '90s revivalism, come together in concise, instrumental compositions built on rhythmic interplay between simple, repetitive motifs and between the players. Rejecting the cold bleakness of the digital domain, Shogun Kunitoki choose to craft their sounds using worn analog equipment in order to give electronic music a soulful, human warmth.
