Over the past couple of years the We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want label have formed a strong bond with Japanese composer Midori Takada. As well as giving new life to Takada’s Through The Looking Glass and Lunar Cruise LPs the label has also taken a shine to the work of Takada’s Mkwaju Ensemble group. After reissuing the band's 1981 record KI-Motion back in June WRWTFWW have now come through with a new edition of MKWAJU (also 1981). The record sees the group collaborating with a young Joe Hisaishi, an artist you may well know from his work scoring several of the Studio Ghibli films. This music is a busy, rhythmically-driven offshoot of Takada’s vibrant post-minimalist xylophone explorations. Well worth a listen.
