You can always trust Rush Hour's Japan series to deliver some incontinental magic, but this tasty 12" is exceptonal even by their gih standards. Firstly it gives the DJ a handy wax of the two finest tracks from Colored Music, but secondly they land enhanced and extended by famed Japanese digger and DJ Chee Shimizu (of Organic Music fame). 
The two cuts originally featured on the band's seminal self titled album from 1981 and 'Heart Beat' remained a cult DJ secret weapon, for many years all over the world. This heavy EP includes an alternative version of 'Heart Beat' that featured on the Japan only "Individual Beauty" LP of 2018 (also compiled by Shimizu).


says: If you know, you know. In case you don’t, these two unclassics from Japan’s Colored Music offer narcotic synth pop laced with industrial idents and proto Detroit thrust.

Faithful music merchants Rush Hour present a lost Japanese house classsic for our delectation! This EP of tracks is taken from the rare Kino Moderno album originally released in 1990 (tracks from this were used for the video game Video Drug 2). It's a vibrat, rich collection of sounds utilizing both analogue and digital synthesis of the time and is reminiscent of Dan Curtin, Shinichiro Yokota & Soichi Terada (especially) or Harumi Hosono's "Super Xevious" proto techno bomb. Features remix work (recorded in 93) from British soulful house DJ Frankie Valentine who had a record on Chez Damier's Balance records. As a bonus this set includes an unreleased version of "Into The Future".


says: Takes a lot for a 'vintage house reissue' to pique my beak these days; yet sometimes someone digs deep enough to unearth summat that's previously escaped my attention and genuinely excites. This is one such offering!
