- Night On Tape by Casino Versus Japan
8/10 Ant Staff review, 22 April 2010
I like this guy's stuff a lot. I think he's a hidden gem in the world of electronic music. Hitori & Kaiso is one of my favourite electronic albums. This was from the same period. There's an interesting story in the press release if you wanna read it. I found it interesting anyway but that's me. I find things interesting about things that I'm interested in. I suspect you're the same. And if you're still reading then you must be interested. Here Mr Casino is at a more ambient and weird end of his musical spectrum. More nighttime I believe. Just lush otherworldly noises, some beautiful echoey guitar, weird fuzzy and buzzy things all wrapped up in some of the best melodic electronic music money can buy. It's a lot less beaty than some of his other works but on second listen it's twisting my onions. Heartily recommended!
9/10 Maxwell Customer review, 18th August 2014
Eric Kowalski, of Wisconsin USA, is brilliant; and somewhere in between a dream and a living being lies Casino Versus Japan. With music that is reminiscent of hissing desolate landscapes, Casino Versus Japan will almost certainly have you feeling new levels of intrigue and depth in your listening experience. Kowalski's 2010 album 'Night On Tape' in no exception.
Comprised of previously unreleased music from his personal catalogue, 'Night On Tape' will have you feeling like you are touring as a V.I.P. through the mind of a true electronic artist. The beautiful ringing of soft synthesizers, the hum of analog noise, and the glistening of the low fidelity, yet crunchy, drums machines are effortlessly incorporated together to create a range of moods from melancholy to budding optimism. Song after song is filled with interpretable meaning that gives the listener a uniquely personal connection to modern nocturne opus that is 'Night On Tape'.
Drawing subtlety from a broad palate of genres certain songs could remind you of the 90's shoe-gaze stylings of 'Slow Drive', the 80's ambient elements of 'Brian Eno', or even the fumbling rhythm of some of your favorite old-school hip-hop tracks from rap groups like 'A Tribe Called Quest'. This album is worth countless listens to anyone that would consider themselves a listener and supporter of the electronic music genre, and makes a near perfect edition to any music fan's collection in general, young or old!
