  • Foodman will debut on New York label Palto Flats with an EP called Moriyama, due out in mid-November. Nagoya-based artist Takahide Higuchi will release some of his most "direct, accessible work" to date, the label says, with an emphasis on "deep, tactile rhythmic and offbeat tracks." It's the second release of the year for Palto Flats, the New York label that's perhaps best known for reissuing rare Japanese albums from the '80s—Mariah's Utakata No Hibi, Midori Takada's Through The Looking Glass and Yasuaki Shimizu's Kakashi among them. The prolific producer, known for a wide stylistic range of experimental dance music, also released another album this year: Aru Otoko No Densetsu, for Sun Araw's Sun Ark label. Then came the footwork-inspired Pokopoko EP for Plastic Bags. Journey back through Foodman's SoundCloud in Ryan Keeling's 2016 feature. Listen to the album cut "Mizuboro."
