Digital Love

It has become a good Tradition that on the 1st of the Month(if possible)
a new Guestmix is posted.We're happy continue this fond Practice with another splendid Mix by the good Soul of PO. and my dear Friend Anne.Here is a little Introduction she's done:
"Flashback, the Eighties, the World is dancing to electronic bleeps and boops. Synthie Pop rules the Planet and Japan is no exception, which isn't a surprise since Japan is the home to most manufacturers of good, affordable Synthesizers like the famous Yamaha DX-7, which became the most widely spread & sold synthesizer in History. At the forefront of the Electronic Music Scene in Japan were Haruomi Hosono, Yukihiro Takahashi and Ryuichi Sakamoto, collectively known as Yellow Magic Orchestra, and through their own works in addition to lending their song writing and composition talents to a plethora of other artists, they did much to shape the sound of Popular Music in Japan during the Eighties. One result of that was the birth of the genre "Techno Kayo", which was characterized by Idol Pop artists such as Seiko Matsuda and Kenji Sawada repackaging themselves with Electronic Styling to fit the music trends of the time. This mix was intended to bring together a mixture of both YMO written and influenced Techno Kayo and Techno Pop, and to be a celebration of Eighties Electronic Japan overall."

  1. I like these, too.
    I think that Techno Kayo is one of pre-Shibuya kei.
    DG -10 covered "kaze no tani no nausicaa( Nausicaa of the Vally of Wind)" and "high school lullaby" before a little.
    A vocalist of DG -10 is a voice actor.

  2. Hi!
