What is it with the Japanese and their interest in releasing different music in different countries? More annoying than them goddamned European two parts, this remix EP has three different versions, three different tracklistings, yet one's released in Japan, one in Europe and one in North America.
What is it with the Japanese and their interest in releasing different music in different countries? More annoying than them goddamned European two parts, this remix EP has three different versions, three different tracklistings, yet one's released in Japan, one in Europe and one in North America. Each come in a matchbook style sleeve with four remixes of tracks lifted from 1999's album "Luxury." Fantastic Plastic Machine is Japanese DJ, magazine editor, radio personality Tomoyuki Tanaka, turned lounge and retro influenced producer/composer - a true Renaisance man. His full length albums have included friends which included The US EP features SWAMP's analogue drum machine heavy version of the campy chanting gem, "You Must Learn All Night Long," Los Amigos Invisibles remix of the disco revivalist, "Bossa for Jackie," (co written originally with Simon Fisher Turner), The Angel's remix of exotica influenced "Honolulu, Calcutta," and DJ Me DJ You's psychedelic swirling guitar and stoned out beats/late 60s film score sounding remix of "The Girl Next Green Door." It's a cute release and recommendable if you're already familiar and enjoy his music, but more recommendable would be the full lengther from 1999 - perhaps a review of that soon. - Jon Whitney
