Indigo Aera releases Selected Works: Fragmentary Memories, a truly special project from Japan's Yamoaka. Yamoaka was originally formed by renowned Japanese duo Kenichi Oka and Yoshinori Yamazaki; after 2007 the project was continued solo by Oka. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Kraftwerk and Y.M.O., Oka masterfully uses hardware to create unique loop based sounds drawing resemblances to minimalist Steve Reich's signature sound, while blending in techno-esque elements comparable to those of Terrence Dixon's Population One alias, finding a harmonious middle ground between the two. Oka achieves a live feel to all his work, recording his tracks in real time without the use of DAW's or computers, instead utilizing his Roland MC50 sequencer with perfect effect. As long-time fans of Kenichi's work, Indigo Aera bosses Jasper and Maarten approached him to release a retrospective selection of his works for the first time on vinyl. The result is a collection of hand-picked tracks previously released on CD-only plus four completely new and unheard pieces. Edition of 298.
