Review: Japanese producer Kuniyuki Takahashi has been known under many alises over the years, including Forth for dub techno/acid house, Frr Hive where he pursued downtempo/drum n' bass and of course Koss for techno - where he recorded several techno releases for local institution Mule Electronic/Musiq. Now Tako and Jamie Tiller at Music From Memory focus in on the veteran producer on this retrospective compilation. The first of two volumes, this release gathers together a selection of tracks from a small run of privately released tape only albums, highlighting selected moments in Takahashi's previously unknown musical output. At his home studio in of Sapporo, Takahashi recorded extensively between 1986 and 1993, experimenting with limited equipment he had gathered together. Driven to develop a musical language derived as much by an exploration of music technology and a desire to create, he was also looking to evolve the possibilities of what he refers to as a 'new Oriental sound'. Textured and glistening new age/ambient soundscapes for the most part featured here, but we really enjoyed the somewhat Tackhead/On U Sound sounding "Signifie" or the industrial beats of "Zero To One" reminiscent of early Chris & Cosey.
