Description of item

Lu / Yoshiaki Shimbo, who grew up in a street culture of skateboarding and club events, has been working with Shu Noben since the early 2000s. They have collaborated on event flyers and live painting, sharing a sense of contemporary music and visuals and outputting works. After that, Shu Noben, who started working on MANWHO designs, heard a mix that Lu / Yoshiaki Shimbo had recorded experimentally and uploaded to soundcloud, and the production of this work began in an attempt to expand on that style.

The CD's contents are a mix of electronic and melodic music, contemporary and improvisational, with a comfortable and unique loop feeling, and proceed at a steady tempo. Using simple equipment, overdubs are layered, and even mistakes that were hesitant or unsuccessful are recorded in layers, as if erasing color with color, and a new groove is born from there.

The spectacular jacket is filled with images of scenes captured from everyday life, depicted by characters in profile, and is also used on MANWHO T-shirts. On the back, there is a collection of QR code links that can be used to share the playlist. Following the links leads to a video work that includes sound effects based on the title, connecting the music and visuals.

This is the second CD under the label MANWHO MUSIC.
MANWHO MUSIC is currently active behind the scenes, so we look forward to their future work.
