Foodman - Yasuragi Land


Yasuragi Land

Release date: December 10, 2021
Foodman is Takahide Higuchi, from Nagoya, in central Japan. 'Yasuragi Land' is his first release for Hyperdub, alive with Footwork-inspired musical freedom and the sense that everything is a rhythm. 'Yasuragi Land' is breezy and refined; hyper-rhythmic music, made with a few simple tools, dances around your head. 'Yasuragi' and 'Parking Area' feel like gently deconstructed acoustic jazz, while 'Ari Ari' is deep house splattered with a cartoonish hiccup. 'Hoshikzu Tenboudai' and 'Shiboritate' bounce around the speakers like trance-inducing polyrhythmic updates of the New York minimalists. 'Food Court' is busy with mechanical rhythm and naive melodies, 'Gallery Café' pairs a cute wooden flute melody with micro edited wooden drums, 'Michi No Eki' is like a digital take on Magma's complex rock, and 'Sanbashi' indirectly approximates 80s R&B. The album finishes with 'Misyuku', its treated guitar lick sounding like it was stolen from Daft Punk, woven into dense interlacing drums. A1. Omiyage A2. Yasuragi A3.
