"TIMELESS STORY"(DATABLOEM/HOL)

2019年5月 オランダのDATABLOEMからCDアルバム"TIMELESS STORY"が
リリースされました。9曲73分間の作品集です。

"TIMELESS STORY"
yamaoka-timeless-story.jpg

Yamaoka’s (Kenichi Oka ) third Databloem release and another lovely ambient cocktail of loop based groovy sequences topped with a touch of minimal techno (improvised on old hardware units). Compared to the previous two Databloem releases ("Time to Time", "Short Films for Long Days") this timeless piece of work seems to tell the story in a more mellow dramatic way, sounding like a musical reflection of Kenichi's experiece of a heavy earthquake shocking his home town and whereafter the only light he saw for a week was coming from the stars...

"A FROZEN STREAM"(CARPE SONUM/U.S.A)

2019年1月 アメリカのCarpe Sonum RecordsからCDアルバム
"A FROZEN STREAM"がリリースされました。

"A FROZEN STREAM"
a frozen stream.jpg

Once a duo, in 2007 Yamaoka became the sole province of Kenichi Oka, and if nothing else, the man hasn’t lain fallow since. On the contrary, he’s continued to ply his trade across a veritable smorgasbord of labels worldwide, and, thankfully, virtually all of it has been on our blessed CD or CDR formats. Making his Carpe Sonum debut, it’s easy to understand why the nomadic Yamaoka is one of electronica’s great hopes for the future. Style-wise, he doesn’t relish sitting still very often, and the remarkable thing is that he traverses such swift alterations in form and function with a singular dexterity. “On Switch” makes mincemeat out of hoary old drum ’n’ bass flexisms due to its liquifying background wetwork and spastic yet cooling synth tropes. Conversely, the achingly lovely chordal loops ringing throughout “Duet” truly paint a picture of what you soul might look like. And “Three Stairs” reasonably ‘remixes’ Tangerine Dream’s lost sequencer art for 21st century nu-school converts, suborning the genre while systematically tweaking it to suit those whose sensibilities arose from IDM’s golden era. Wow and flutter, with emphasis on the wow.

"Selected Works: Fragmentary Memories"
selected works YAMAOKA.jpgselected works .jpg


Indigo aera are proud to release a truly special project from Japan's Yamoaka.
Yamoaka was originally formed by renowned Japanese duo Kenichi Oka and Yoshinori Yamazaki, until 2007 when the project was continued solo by Kenichi Oka. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Kraftwerk and Y.M.O., Oka masterfully uses hardware to creates 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. Kenichi achieves a live feel to all his work, recording his tracks in real time without the use of DAW's or computers, instead utilising his Roland MC50 sequencer with perfect effect.
As long time fans of Kenichi's 'Under The Radar' 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 4 completely new and unheard.
The double 12" is also a follow-up to the 2x12" Indigo mini album series which featured tracks from Louis Haiman and Kirk Degiorgio. Similarly, this release is highly limited to 298 copies only and released on vinyl only.
