  • Ellis Island Sound

    Ellis Island Sound

    CD / Heavenly

    This CD works on many different levels. With its slick packaging and sound, it succeeds as a chill out record for those with a taste for the underground. For those already familiar with the band, it acts as a complete 'up till now' collection.

  • Never Mind the Bootlegs

    Never Mind The Bootlegs, Here's Sex With Nid & Sancy

    CD / various / no label

    Things go deeper, get darker, and more complex than ever with this disc, with hardcore rhythms, schooling raps and incredible mix capabilities, the only crime in this set being the high amount of profanity throughout.

    Did you dream last night? a child asks in the middle of the song 'a reader of tale', in a way, this question sums up the feeling of this disc. Child and Magic is Takemura's homage to childhood.
