Mueller Records presents a mini-album from Japan's matador of techno, Takkyu Ishino -- previously released only in Japan in 2010 on Ki/oon Records/Loopa. Ishino is a multi-tasker responsible for countless projects and productions including Denki Groove, Berlin Trax, and the Wire Festival (Asia's biggest indoor festival). He formed Denki Groove together with Pierre Taki and other musicians back in 1989. Takkyu released his first solo album Dove Loves Dub in 1995, and began performing as a professional DJ around the same time. His DJ craftsmanship has been widely demonstrated in Europe since 1997. Since 1999, he has been organizing the event Wire, which has now become the biggest indoor techno rave in Japan, gathering more than 10,000 people a year. In 2002, he made some remarkable works such as a remix of "Anthem," the official theme of the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan written by Vangelis, and also the music for the theatrical stand-up comedy "Papa Semplicita" by City Boys, three big-name comedians in Japan. In 2003, Takkyu started hosting a regular party "Sterne" at the club Womb in Shibuya, for which he serves as a resident DJ, and one of its live sets was released as a DJ mix CD called In The Box - Live At Womb Tokyo. Around this time, Takkyu founded the indie label, Platik. In 2006, he formed the unit InK with Hiroshi Kawanabe and released two albums. Cruise has been unavailable outside of Japan, until now, and Mueller Records plans to release more music from this outstanding artist. Takkyu has been on the scene since the early days plying his club-tools and funky techno throughout Japan. Here's your chance to grab one of Japan's best-selling techno records with one exclusive track, especially for the Mueller label.
