Comment: this handful of tracks had been created approximately 3 decades ago in Japan on low price yet effectively propelling synthesisers and a drum machine called Alesis HR16. Light-hearted melodies, slightly extended and mutant chord ends, and naive yet catchy cadences with a slight tin-tinged flavour and occasional acidic attacks are composed in a way which can very certainly be considered as Japanese. At times it chimes like an example of pre-electroclash via rough simplification of post-punk music (especially at Scene 7). Thanks to Upitup for finding and exposing the Japanese DIY maverick to a wider audience.
