About this item

It's fair to say that Japanese house music is enjoying a moment in the (rising) sun at the moment with reissues and bootlegs popping up all over the show as DJs and label heads scour through on of the last unmapped territories of the dance music world. Standing at the centre of much of the mindblowing music passing through the shop at the moment is the name Soichi Terada, the founder of legendary Japanese house label Far East Recordings, and the star of this killer Rush Hour retrospective. Compiled by Hunee and lovingly pressed onto double vinyl and CD, "Sounds From The Far East" features eccentric and highly sought after material by Terada alongside collaborators Shinichiro Yokota and Manabu Nagayama. Born in the 1960s, Terada majored in computer science and electronic organ, founding Far East Recording soon after his graduation, in 1989, when he was unable to find a label for his musical output. "Sounds From The Far East" shines new light on Soichi Terada's label and work, and consists of material that was originally released in the early nineties. Alongside obscure gems like the frenetic "Hohai Beats" and the breakbeat fuelled "Good Morning", we're treated to Lexx anthem "Do It Again" by Yokota, the magnificent Balearic house of "Low Tension" and the instrumental mix of all out Pradise Garage anthem "Sunshower". This perfectly curated snapshot of one of music's unsung heroes is absolutely essential for any true house heads out there.
