Digital Love 2

This is no April Fool's trick,our true Friend Anne was so kind to create a follow up to her highly popular first Digital Love Mix.She searched through her Vault and collected another 15 Techno-Kayo Gems.This installment draws heavily from the composition talents of Techno Pop Titan Haruomi Hosono.The Jack of all Trades is involved either as a Composer for Kirara and Ulala, Akina Nakamori, Chiemi Manabe, Miki Fujimori, Imo-kin Trio, Shoujotai, and Masami Yasuda or lends his Bass playing and Vocal Skills to Hiromi GO & Snakemen Show.Apart from the Hosono related Tracks, this Collection features Bands like Maki Nomiya's pre-Pizzicato Five outfit Portable Rock and Halmens.Halmens Frontman,the Dentist turned Singer Kenzo Saeki later became a popular Song Writer for Nomiya Maki,Togawa Jun and Pop Idol Koizumi Kyoko.He is also very popular in France for his unique interpretations of the Works of Serge Gainsbourg and Michel Polnareff.If you liked the first Digital Love,you will love the second one.Please show Anne your kudos for this wonderful Collection and maybe she'll create another one.

  1. I heard Techono-kayo such as Hiromi Go or Akina Nakamori for the first time. Thank you.
    This was the highest music for those days, but is avant garde very much when I listen now.
    I did not yet hear it in the real time because it was a child, but was the times when I was stimulating at all and was interesting.
    The fusion of the unique & pop is charm of Techono-kayo.

  2. Thank you for taking the time to listen to and comment on my mix, Kaku :) I very much appreciate it! I'm happy I could introduce you to new Techno-kayo artists, and I completely agree that so much of this music has stood the test of time and still sounds fresh, and ahead of its time!, even today, so that's definitely why it's still enjoyable.
