Following his critically acclaimed collections "Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties" and "Electronic Music
from the Eighties and Nineties", Carl Stone quickly follows-up "Baroo" with a 2LP album of recent
works, including the final section of “Fujiken”, his epic journey through southeast Asian field recordings and street
cassette culture. On all six tracks, composed between 2013 and 2019, Stone’s pan-global playground of looping
synths and Asian pop culture remains as fertile as ever, digitally shattered into unimagined patterns and gestures,

either through the MAX programming language or (in the case of “Kikanbou”) by generating live loops within an

Elektron Octatrack sampler.

The title track is the first recorded release from Stone’s ongoing collaboration with the Japanese vocalist Akaihirume.

Elsewhere new influences come from rock (the slow drum break of “Bia Bia”), disco (the Nile Rodgers-esque guitar rif

“Kikanbou”) and hip hop (the frenetic percussion loop of “Han Yan”). Their diversity only adds to Stone’s borderless

musical vision, a world where rhythm becomes atmosphere, song becomes beat, and pop becomes art.
