- The 24-track collection gathers up tracks from the two Japanese footwork producers.
D.J.Fulltono and CRZKNY are releasing an album under the name Theater 1.
Both producers are anchors of the Japanese footwork scene, a bustling community that has taken the genre in all sorts of quirky directions over the past few years. Osaka's D.J.Fulltono runs the Booty Tune label, while CRZKNY, based in Hiroshima, has a discography of over 400 tracks.
fin, which is due out on melting bot, is a compilation of tracks released in the past year. Each producer gets one disc to themselves. It's reportedly inspired by Basic Channel and Wolfgang Voigt, and the label describes the music here as "an experimental, inorganic, hypnotic, new sensational kind of techno minimalism," with "the classic 160 BPM stamp mutated and blended into polyrhythmic four-to-the-floor grooves." The CD also comes with a download code for a mix by D.J.Fulltono.
