nhk'koyxen: dance classics vol ii

ltd repress. Kouhei Matsunaga's Dance Classics Vol. II is the continuation of his ongoing development of his more dance-oriented material, as seen from his sets with Sensational and also his other minimal techno project, NHK. Not feeling tied down to one genre, Matsunaga nestles in the Pan roster. That isn't to say, however, that he is dance per se, as witnessed from his recent collaborations with Conrad Schnitzler. The album focuses more on bass/base electronics, music for the dancefloor and/or altered-state reflection. Having composed pieces for WDR based on Henri Chopin, Kouhei is equally at ease jamming with Sensational, while simultaneously executing an obsessively numerical sequence of dance pieces that borders on Hanne Darboven-like compulsivity. Born in Osaka, Kouhei Matsunaga is a musician and an illustrator. He grew up listening to hardcore techno and hip-hop, studied architecture, and has been mainly making music since 1992. Under many different aliases (NHK, NHKyx, Internet Magic, Koyxen) he has released numerous albums on labels such as Skam Records, Wordsound, Raster Noton, and his first-ever album Upside Down on Mille Plateaux in 1998. He has also collaborated with artists like Merzbow, Jungle Brothers' Sensational, Autechre's Sean Booth, Mika Vainio, Conrad Schnitzler, Anti Pop Consorium's High Priest, Rudolf, Puppetmastaz crew, Asmus Tietchens, Ralf "RLW" Wehowsky and so on. The LP is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering and pressed on 140 gram vinyl. It is packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silk screened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas.
