SHINICHI OSAWA

l_753960e12bcf57ab1f4641d27de4508d

SO japanese electro demoniser SHINICHI OSAWA is very skilled at ye olde remixing. one of the most skilled by any estimation. and in researching him i found this interview (featured on electriparty but i have cut it down) which reveals him as more thoughtful an artist than your average mr dj.

ONE MORE STRING TO HIS MASSIVE SUCCESSFUL BOW

and his history……. he started new wave synth band MONDO GROSSO in japan way back and is now the best remixer and producer in japan WITHOUT DOUBT.

…………here is a bit of the interview……….

……………and FOUR fantastic remixes……….

ELECTRIPARTY: How did you come to music?
SHINICHI OSAWA: Some naughty friends from my neighborhood talked me into playing in a punk/ new wave band. 

EP: How do you compose your tracks & remixes, what are your main influences?
SO: There are two patterns; sometimes I am inspired by music itself. The other times, I am inspired by visual images and daily life, and change it into musical expression.

EP: What is electronic music for you?
SO: for me it’s a new form of art

EP: What are your relations with Kitsune?
SO: they are good friends of mine.

EP: How has your life changed in the last 15 years ?
SO: I spent it looking for the vision of my life. I came to the conclusion that I pursue music.

EP: Mondo Grosso in italian means Big World, why this choice?
SO: It first had a cynical conotation to it; Looking out to the world being based in such a small Japanese and feudalistic town like Kyoto. But soon I moved to Tokyo and my music was released outside of Japan. So it is a nonsense name now.

EP: Could you tell us more about your next projects, about your expectations ? An Album ?
SO: My new album as Shinichi Osawa is going to be released in Japan in September. International release will follow

ALEX GOPHER – AURORA (SHINICHI OSAWA REMIX)

[an extremely loud, banging, screeching, winding song with osawa trademark guitar refixing – THIS is BIG]

CLAZZIQUAI – PRAYERS (SHINICHI OSAWA REMIX)

[the wobbliest and most electro of his repetoire, definitely a hint to his forthcoming album i feel]

FELIX DA HOUSECAT – RADIO (SHINICHI OSAWA REMIX)

[such a brilliant song it begs belief, the type which makes you reflect on the great bits of your life, really euphoric]

DIGITALISM – POGO (SHINICHI OSAWA REMIX)

[a most dreamy, floaty, airy one. again a reflective, serene little track – he is really brilliant isn’t he]

——————————— TRACKS WILL BE RE-UPPED

i saw this on the erol alkan forum and  just couldn’t resist. i love the artist who does these posters ( www.myspace.com/turbokrapfen) and it gives me an excuse to post more beetroots. gods in black velvet masks. more head//bangers from the dynaic duo. these tracks are sweet examples of the bloody beetroot style and could be used to dead the living!

I just can’t get enough!!

mustard pimp

already done a post on them but I just can’t get enough of them! Simply the best new electro artist of late 2008 and I expect to see even more great things from them in 2009. If you haven’t already downloaded all the previous mustard pimp tracks on this blog, well, DO!

mustard pimp – oh la la Satan (killing people slight edit)

EXCLUSIVE TO WIZARDSAREBETTER!! a slight edit, adding in some hi-hats and middle section. probably my favourite track of the year. DIRTY, BOUNCY, SCARY with an almost classical melody.

crookers – il brutto (mustard pimp el burrito remix)

A classic Crookers track which has been supremely pimped, with references to the Bloody Beetroots remix which is also superb. They’ve also added in the much loved “Crooookeeeerrrsss” cry which the italian duo use in a few of their own. panic!

mustard pimp – wha, han, yeah, shit

EXCLUSIVE TO WIZARDSAREBETTER!! really, i searched and searched for this song on all the blogs and it is either non existent or a dead link. One of MP’s first tracks on they’re first EP, raging blood. And wow, fast enough to be bassline, wobbly enough to be fidget, fucking grimy enough to be dirty electro and just good enough to be my second favourite MP track!

stereoheroes – washout (mustard pimp remix)

The original was great, the remix is……you guessed it, EVEN BETTER!! Staying true to the original but with the obvious mustard synth sound. How i wish i could make their sound…

the bloody beetroots vs. mustard pimp – detroit (zombie edit) (killing people mash-up)

EXCLUSIVE TO WIZARDSAREBETTER!! my favorite ever electro track, detroit (ghetto edit) by the bloody beetroots, also, to my understanding, mustard pimp’s favorite ever electro track, mixed with mustard pimp’s zombie revenge, also a fucking banger. 

ZOMBIE!

ok stop

fh000020

okay so i posted this track way back when we were not the mega power house we now are. and it is so unbelievable – welsh dubstep which honestly wobbles and crunks and everything funny more times in a second than a hamburger on a ferris wheel (apparently). IT is stupid how wonky this song is

stagga – sick as sin

They are also behind the amazing BAG RAIDERS. although recently moving towards a more vocal style they still bang out massively catchy synth cheese with huge songs like fun punch and turbo love. listen and enjoy.

bag raiders-fun punch

…………..and just a little bit more crunchy ozzie electro from calling in sick. lovely remix of bag raiders and an amazing remix of  midfield general‘s disco sirens. go australia!

aaaaya!headshotboyz!

n501370981_492323_9328

hailing from BUDAPEST, hungary, headshotboyz (despite having a fucking stupid name) make insanely cool music.

AND IT IS DIVERSE!

it has fiddles, flutes, opera, and strange, strange stringed instruments. it is the mix of your normal fidgetty electro with foreign rhthym and medieval sounds that makes them so very special – ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!

preliminary [a very hardcore dubstep edged track, breaks down into just a massive bass thumping brain fucking mess]

detector [like the soundtrack to a spy film, again quite hardcore build up- turns just very fidgety indeed – subcategory – ‘itching powder fidget’ !!!]

exodus  [aaah!this song is incredible. one of the coolest creepiest intro’s ever….strings, howling wind, SO HUNGARIAN!]

balkan powa [aha this is funny, an opera singer gets shot at the beginning. for some reason i have the idea it is the pope. and then its just an eastern european pipe jam!wooooo]
